Motherhood doesn’t come easy. It comes knocking at life with a lot of responsibilities and sacrifices for the parents – especially the mother. She doesn’t just have to bear the baby within herself but also once she/he’s born. Waking up at nights, changing diapers, feeding the baby – there’s a lot to the picture than just getting the umbilical cords cut. The baby is always more connected to the mother. She/he wants her warmth almost all the time. It’s a difficult time for the whole family adjusting as per the desires of a little human and seeing the baby as adorable as he/she is through all the messes s/he creates.

  • Uneven Sleep Cycles
  • Overwhelmed & Mixed Feelings

If the baby is hungry, they have to feed the baby first and then to satisfy their own appetite. They have to adjust to sleeping with a little baby and wake up at the cries.
