July of 2010 i had my first baby, i was 23 years old. September 2011 i had my second baby. Both of them cried all the time!
I was constantly stressed, sleep deprived, and on my last nerve. Post partum depression was a real struggle! Anyone that has delt with it knows its hard! If you think u have it please dont be afraid to ask for help!! Fast forward to 2017 my third baby at 29 years old. The lord has BLESSED me with this calm, content, barely ever cries little boy.
Let me explain why i feel blessed this time around....
With my first 2 boys i was married so i had help. When i felt overwhelmed, tired, at my wits end i had someone there to pick up when i had fallen. We are divorced going on 6ish years. He is remarried to an amazing woman. And still to this day if i need help with our boys they dont hesitate to be there. Single mother? No. Maybe in marital status single and a mother. But not in the way of raising the boys.
Here with boy number 3, his father decided to not be in the picture a few weeks after finding out i was pregnant. So now i am a single mother to one precious little gift. I have zero help at night, zero help getting out the door, or just everyday activities.
He is up every 3ish hours at night to eat. Im breast feeding this time, and i have an over supply. Which means my milk comes out way to fast and he chokes, spits it out, and unlatches. It gets messy! But we are working on it. And inspite of our feeding bumps he is so patient with me. He doesnt cry and get all upset. He doesnt fuss when he is tired, wet, or hungry. So being on my own and having a calm, no care, goa head and give me a bath, goa head and change my diaper baby, i really could not have asked for anything better! And i was prepared to be pulling out my hair! Haha
