How quickly things have changed

My life has changed so much in the last 3 months and I am loving being a mother but never thought I would be so tired. In my mother’s group there is such a range of experiences, some are having trouble with feeding, others don’t have any family nearby, and one friend is getting sleep, having no trouble with feeding her baby and has her family around.


Sometimes I walk away from the group feeling I should be trying different things for settling Sam but have been reassured by the What Were We Thinking website that shows the normal sleep patterns and tips for settling Sam.


I enjoy getting together with other mothers and hope to continue some friendships. When we all get together we can talk about how we are feeling and have a good laugh about our lives as new mothers.
