For the new mamas.
Things that made me nervous as a new mom and why they don’t make me nervous anymore. So much has changed in four years. As a new mom I was nervous, I second-guessed myself, I had little confidence in my decisions and most of the time I felt like I was asking all of my mom friends for advice & help. The third time around it is a whole new ballgame. I want to encourage you new mamas. You new dads. It gets so much easier! As time goes on you will settle into this new role. You will be confident that you are the mama and you know what is best for your child.
You will get in your groove & you will soar!
new moms, new dads,
You’re doing a great job! Give yourself grace and know that everyone feels unsure at times in the beginning. I felt so unsure the first time and now as a third time new mom, I am more confident in my ways.
you know best
You will get so much advice as a new parent. When I was a new mama, I didn’t anticipate how overwhelmed I would be by the the advice! Slowly I started to realize that I am the mama and I know what is best for my own baby. All babies are so different!
I can remember worrying about eating! Are they eating enough, are they hungry? The third time I was able to rest easy… that baby will tell you when it’s hungry!
Can I give them each the love & attention that they need & deserve?
I think once we start expanding our families this is a natural question to ask. And the answer is yes! You can be intentional with each baby and fill up each love tank accordingly!
Will the older one be jealous?
I have been through this a few times now and each time my older child has lovingly welcomed the new baby into our family and made the transition lovely! Rest easy…. you are giving your child a new best friend!
do I have what it takes?
Before I have given birth each time, I have asked myself this question. Do I have what it takes? You do! You need the encouragement moms & dads… you are taking on a hard & rewarding job and you absolutely have what it takes. Don’t second guess yourself or fall into the “mama guilt”. You are super woman!
