How long should the title new mum be valid?

How long should the title new mum be valid?

Am I still a new mum? Yes I suppose I am. My boy is soon 1 1/2 years old and the baby stage is “in theory” over – but he is and always be my baby . But that should make a not so new mum since I don’t have a new born any more, right? Wrong 😀

Everyday is a new day. Everyday I see something new in my boy and everyday I learn more things about him and about me. What I’m trying to say is that I’ll always be a new mum as I still know nothing (ok I do know how to change a diaper) and I keep learning new things everyday.

If you happen to read this blog right after you had your first baby, if you are literally a new mum, I just want to tell you that yes it’s tough as fuck, like borderline survival, but you can do it and it does get easier. Don’t read what people say like “oh wait until he/she walks” or “wait until they do this and that”. Don’t listen to them. It does get better and you will sooner or later (probably later) sleep a bit more. Even an extra hour of sleep does make a difference.

So welcome new and old new mums. Everyday is a challenge and a new adventure. Enjoy and hang in there.

( Wtf, how poetic am I today? 😀 )
