The do grow too quick, when I look at Coralie I cannot believe how much she has changed in 7.5 months

I found the first three months the hardest, most tiring of my entire life. Nothing prepares you for being a Mum. Your emotions are all over the place, and the love you feel for LO is like nothing else. Team that with no sleep and a crying baby and you're going to find it very very hard.

I guess, when people say enjoy them while they're little they mean that whereas you may not like those first few months, try and focus on the moments that make your heart melt When those moments happen, just take a breath and enjoy your LO. Those are the times you remember, we all forget about the sleepless nights Just make sure you get some treasured memories from those first few months where it feels like you're never going to sleep again

Please tell me I'm not alone and there is (at least a little) element of rose-tinted specs from all those who are telling me to enjoy him...

The first 6 months of my boys life were the worst months of my life, he was so horribly colicky and I had PND, I have NO regrets about not enjoying that part! None at all!

I take in everything and enjoy it all... But faith is pretty easy going, from a newborn she only woke twice in the night, and she always settled down at 7-8 ish an went to sleep til 10-11 for a feed.. And slept again..
She's never done this crying in the evening thing ... So I don't know what's that is like ..
She only wakes once in the night now and has sttn a couple times already. ..
My newborn I don't think is hard work, I actually find it easy... So I can't wait to have another one and il cherish all those moments to!

They are young for years though. Don't feel bad for not enjoying the first months. I know I didn't.

Snap!! My LO is 1 in 6 weeks. I would say it's only been the past month or 2 that I've enjoyed it. PND, reflux and digestive issues ruined at least the first 6 months and I still find it tough although I'm loving it now!!

I'm a little sad that I was so upset and exhausted maybe I didn't take everything in those first few months but now the bond between me and LO is amazing. I look at her and I melt, she's my beautiful little princess.

My advice is just to take each day as it comes, don't put too much pressure on yourself, take extra time off work if you need. Sleep during the day, accept a break if you can get it xxx

I found the first couple of months really hard. I enjoy her a lot more now at this age and although she was really sweet and little as a newborn I don't miss it!

Everyone said this to me & I really thought time was dragging a bit tbh. Up all night, never getting more than 3 hrs sleep in a row more than once a week, very little interaction etc.

Now she's 6 mths I'm the one who's saying "they grow so fast" because now she is!!! I'm enjoying her so much more so the time is flying. Newborns can be a bit boring!

Oh don't get me wrong I loved Ruby as a little baby and she was an 'easy baby' but toddlers are just AMAZING.
