We’ve got this, Mama! Knowledge is power, as we know better we can do better! There is so much information out there: the internet, books, those moms that have gone before us, grandparents, aunts, uncles, even strangers. And from what we have found everyone has an opinion and is willing to share it with us! It can be a bit overwhelming, especially as a first time mama with ALL the information coming at you! Information is great! Take what resonates with you and leave the rest! It’s wonderful to read and learn all while also listening to our mama intuition too!
We have to have a balance and know that we have that mama intuition/gut feeling for a reason! LISTEN TO IT without shame or the need to explain our choices we make as a family! Also sometimes what worked for someone else will not work for our baby(ies) or family! I mean let’s be real, what worked/works for one sibling may not even work for another and that’s okay!
We need to be confident in the choices that works best for our babies, us, and our family! There will always be people with a difference of opinion! Turn off that outside noise and don’t worry about the judgement that comes sometimes! Easier said than done, we know, but try to push it aside!
We are here to cheer you on mama and let you know WE’VE GOT THIS! We are ROCKING THIS MAMA GIG and are EXACTLY what our babies need! Not saying we are perfect or can’t learn because goodness we all can and do!
