I wish someone had told me being premature didn't purely stop at being born early. I didn't realise all the other issues that went with it

Literally was going to say the same until i scrolled and saw this! And the conflicting advice on how to feed a premature baby.

Oh yes ^^^ mummy is guilt is real! Hahaha does my head in.

Also donít get caught up in comparing yourself to other mums. They may look like ducks swimming calmly on the water but underneath they are paddling like crazies just the same. They just have a better game face than you thatís all. Haha if that makes any sense. Oh and donít stress over reading and following all these baby self help books to the t. Use them for a rough guide but follow your heart and Mother Nature and your kids will be just fine. Enjoy your babies and donít stress over routines.
Before having children I didnít realise I was going to learn a lot from my first as a mummy and a person. Xx

It's okay to ask for help.

Breastfeeding is HARD!!

You'll likely feel feelings of depression and anxiety and that doesn't mean you don't love your baby. It's normal.

That babies including new borns cry when they are tired. Took me weeks of fretting about reflux and wind before I figured it out.

^^^ this always surprises me too. I just assumed it was because I have huge heavy babies! I see women carrying them over their arm like a hand bag and I’m there practically dragging the thing, sweating with my poor baby bobbing around in it. I’m not even a weakling? Haha how do they do it??

mummy to a little boy hopefully add to our family at some point!
I wish that someone told me that you will become so defensive over the littlest things when people are touching/holding your baby. Also that you will get immense pressure from people to care for your baby and itís good and gone to say no! They always say they are doing me a favour.
Youíre not. I want to be with my son all the time
