First 6 weeks 

They say a child gives birth to a mother, and it’s so true.

I never knew I could love like this. And I never knew I could grow so much closer to my hugsband. The journey to seeing our baby being born has been absolutely blissful. 

The first 6 weeks were extremely difficult, and very challenging to get through. On one hand, I was recovering from the 48 hour labour & delivery, and on the other feeding the little one every other hour. I had no sense of time left and was quite delirious by the end of it. It’s physically and mentally very nerve wrecking to manage. It dint help that the baby developed colic in Week 3, and it became all the more difficult to cope. 

However, my son gave me the strength to sail through that phase. My husband and mother were god sent pillars of strength who made everything as comfortable as possible for me. 

It does get better mama!

Much love,

Mama Dee

  1. I had a 45 hour labor and delivery as well as a baby who wakes every hour to feed and have been feeling completely drained. Thought i was thrilled only one with a baby who doesn’t sleep medium to long stretches. I get no sleep and she’s about 7 weeks now with very slight improvement in sleeping, nothing worth noting. Blessings !


    1. That’s nonetheless beautiful. Congratulations! She will grow out of it very soon and start sleeping well… it’s just a phase. They grow up so soon that you will start missing these days 😊
