Whether you have a chronic illness or not, there is one thing a new mama seems to need…Reassurance that it will get better.
And it will.
One day they will sleep through the night, they’ll eat by themselves, they’ll play independently.
You’re in the trenches of motherhood, knee deep in milk and poop and tears, for such a short time. One day you’ll look up and realise it’s over. It’s better.
Your baby will learn to self settle when they’re ready. They’ll get the hang of feeding. They’ll cry less.
Enjoy those smiles that light up even the darkest of sleepless days. Enjoy the soft baby skin, the chubby cheeks, the sweet wrist rolls. I am!

I created the Mama Notes Diary printable for pregnant mamas to track their busy lives during pregnancy.
