Life with a newborn has been a new experience and everyday a new lesson will be learnt through this beautiful soul. In this new series I’ll be sharing my experience, tips and pictures on what life is like with a little baby!
To be honest, I found it really difficult adjusting to this new chapter and in a way I felt like I was not going to be able to be good enough for my child or that my motherly instincts wouldn’t kick in. Luckily I was able to have full on support from my husband and family who gave me that confidence that I needed. As a first time mum everything was scary but the one thing I remembered was that I know I would get better. I had to understand that this was all a learning process, that I wasn’t alone in this and that support was around me. I remember after Isabella’s first injections she broke out in a massive rash all over her body, she wasn’t feeding and she couldn’t sleep at all. We panicked because it was unexplainable and had to rush to A&E to find out what was wrong with her. Through it all I couldn’t help but feel like it was my fault, I kept trying to trace my steps back to the moment I saw this. Was it the injections? Was it her clothes? Is it her cream? I felt like I could’ve prevented it. She ended up being fine in the end but I had to come to terms that I will not always have an answer for everything that happens and I know even my own parents are still learning.
