Fingers crossed @pippettes elves will be working their magic on the gremlins tonight! This Elf Leaf potion contains a relaxing combination of chamomile & lavender which were worshipped by Norsemen believing they attracted prosperity and love. I'm aiming to attract a post 5:30am wake up 🤞🏻
Everyone will tell you, “enjoy your baby, they grow up so fast”. It is just so hard when you are dealing with such exhaustion. I was so tired that I didn’t realise how broken I was. Its okay to reach out for help and Baby Sleep Support is designed to make it easy for tired mums to find the right baby sleep consultant. Website launching soon .
I was absolutely sure my labour had started for real last night and managed to get off to sleep expecting to wake again in the early hours and have to jet off to the hospital. Woke up this morning... nothing 😔
Back to making and nesting it is...
This is exhaustion. Being a mumma is the best thing that’s ever happened to me, but it’s not pretty. My husband snapped this pic after I’d spent the day being a zombie on a couple of hours of sleep and finally caught a nap with our son. This is the reality, no make up, hair unbrushed, bed unmade. Don’t be fooled by those celeb mums with their perfect post baby bodies, contoured make up and blow dried hair. I know I’ve looked at those photos and wondered what I’m doing wrong. This is what it really looks like... and this photo, in all its unfiltered ugly glory is my favourite of me and my baby 😍 You’re doing great fellow mumma’s, keep going, you are your baby’s world. #firsttimemummy#mumlife#tiredmumma#reality#youvegotthismama (Uploaded at 5am whilst up with the baby!)
Since starting clean eating a couple of years ago I never skip breakfast but this last week it’s been a real struggle! I find myself not remembering to eat, not feeling hungry to eat or if i I do, finding the time is a juggle 🥄🍶 This morning I managed to force down some homemade muesli and Greek yoghurt and I managed a few sips of DECAF 😩 before the Cookie Monster was hungry again 👶🏼Making time to eat well while I’m so tired is definitely a priority I’m going to have to work on these next few weeks ⚖️ #cleaneating#breastfeedinglife#nzmums#mumlife#coldcoffee#notevenrealcoffee#decaf#cleaneatingnz#tiredmumma#breakfastinspo
