Recently, we asked our followers on Instagram what they would tell themselves before they became a mom. The responses were both funny and heartfelt and so relatable.
Here are a few of our favorites, we couldn’t agree more.
You are good enough.
Never wake a sleeping baby.
This stage is just a phase.
None of it will go as you plan for it to go.
It will be so hard. But it will be the best thing to ever happen to you.
Don’t worry if you feel a loss of identity…but don’t wallow in it that loss. Grieve it and take the steps you need to redefine it.
You’re not a perfect mom but you are the perfect mom for your child!
You’ll sleep again someday.
It’s ok if breastfeeding doesn’t work out/isn’t for you.
It really is true: your world, your heart, your soul will never be the same again. This little person will flip a switch in you, making you feel unlike you’ve ever felt before… and it’s pure magic.
We’ll end on that one! We hope the give you some encouragement for days to come if you’re expecting or if you’re struggling through the newborn and infant stage. Lots of these make sense throughout the years too. You’re doing great!
