I don’t mean to sound uncaring, but had to giggle (laugh like a hyena) when I read these new mum concerns online…
“How do I initiate a routine with my 2-week-old?”
“My 1-week-old is being very clingy and only wants to be held by me – what’s wrong with her?”
“My 3-week-old is only sleeping 3-4 hour stretches at night – how do I make him sleep longer… I’m very tired.”
“My lovely 2 week old did the unthinkable and fed every 2 hours last night – I am exhausted today – how do I prevent this from happening again?”
Still laughing. OK, maybe crying… Just a little.
