Lack of sleep, tired and burning feet, emotional upheavals, morning sickness, soreness all over are just a few of the discomforts that every woman has to face.
Despite endlessly watching pregnancy and motherhood related videos and talking to the friends and relatives, no one is prepared for motherhood..
Here are the five fascinating things that no one will tell you about Motherhood.
1. You will find yourself doing repetitive tasks
A new mother’s life simply revolves around feeding her baby, changing diapers, feeding again, changing again and so on and so forth. After 3-4 months, babies start smiling, start recognizing their mothers and sometimes interact with her, till then, the mother has no choice but to go on with the grind.
2. You will feel tired due to sleepless nights
Motherhood makes woman quite perceptive about a variety of aches and pains in different parts of the body. The new mother has to go through a lot of sleepless nights. It becomes even more demanding during weather change as the baby requires more attention and care during this phase.
3. Breastfeeding is not as easy
Friends will warn you, but you can't understand how difficult nursing can be for some new mommies until you have been through it yourself. Once you start breastfeeding you will realize that it’s a whole lot- of science and art, from how to hold the baby to how much to feed, latching techniques, dealing with infections, swollen breasts, too much milk, not enough milk… you get the idea. Don't be afraid to ask for help.
4. You absolutely don’t find time to yourself.
As soon as your baby wakes up in the morning, your working day starts, and it finishes when your baby goes to sleep at night. Even if baby naps during the day, you will have baby-oriented tasks to do, such as sterilizing milk bottles and pacifiers and washing their clothes
5. Share responsibility equally with your partner
The one mistake that most of the women does is ignoring their partner once the baby is born. Give equal priority both to your baby and husband. If you are at home with baby all day, your partner has some responsibility to share the load when he or she is not at work.
Every little act of yours will shape your child’s personality. So work towards how you want your little one to grow up to be. Children inhibit the characteristics of parents especially mother. Your baby represents your inner heart. Sp, leave anger, jealous, hatred, disappointment, frustration from your heart. Make it pure with happy thoughts so that the born baby will live so happily every second when he opens his eyes and sees this world. Be your own version of supermom.
