Help! I need a break🤦🏽‍♀️

With motherhood, some seasons can be overwhelming, but, good thing they are seasons, it'll pass

When I had my first daughter, I was totally unprepared for what hit me. Don’t get me wrong, I’m that mum who watched ALL the videos on Baby Centre, visited the hospitals to ask questions, practised all they said, but still, no one and nothing prepares you for the life change.

It was in winter, it was extremely cold, well going by my own definition because everyone else thought the weather was just right 🤦🏽‍♀️😜

After my beautiful princess arrived, like most mums, I was excited and so full of joy, I mean, was I just a mum all of a sudden, just like that? 😀

Then I began to learn in real terms all the things I had seen on screen, it was a lot to take in but, hey, I love this little one, I’d do anything!

The first couple of weeks were the hardest. She’d be awake all through the night crying, and I’d just be clueless as to why. Then I realized that when I carried her, she’d sleep, but the moment her body touched the cold sheets again, eyes wide open, mouth loud crying 😀

I remember one morning, after taking both night and day shifts for 3 days straight, I was so weak, emotional and broken that once my mum called me, I broke down into tears, I couldn’t take it anymore.

I could feel my mum felt so much concern for me, she encouraged me, got some help for me and told me to speak into my daughter’s life and tell her whatever I wanted her to do.

So I started…

You sleep through the night…

You don’t wear me out…

You bring my joy and sweetness…

You are blessing!

Believe me or not, in a couple of days, my darling daughter started sleeping through the night! And in her own crib!

I couldn’t believe it, I wore myself out checking to ensure she was still breathing a zillion times throughout the night.

Why am I telling you this story? Because seasons change so fast, the pressures of yesterday won’t always be here, your kids will grow up, they’ll sleep through the night, they’ll bring you so much joy!

So, enjoy this season because it won’t be here forever 😘

Also, let me share with you something I found I wasn’t doing quite right, I wasn’t dressing her up for the weather, I sometimes made her too warm she was uncomfortable. Mums, the right clothing for your child is critical! Make sure your babies aren’t too warm or too cold, the perfect sleepwear may just be the secret to enjoying this season!
