MUMS AND DADS, IT'S OK.

It's ok to admit it's hard.
It's ok to ask for help.
It's ok to worry.
It's ok to make use of family and friends offers to babysit- go out and be you.
It's ok to want to be "you" again, even if it's just a little bit of the old with all of the new.
It's ok to take five minutes fresh air during a scream fest.
It's ok not be be ok.
It's ok if you want to breastfeed.
It's ok if you don't want to breastfeed.
It's ok if you can't breastfeed.
It's ok if you have to stop breastfeeding.
It's ok if you spend the day in your pyjamas.
It's ok if you're not into mummy baby dates.
It's ok if they're the only thing keeping you sane.
It's ok if you give your baby a dummy.
It's ok if you haven't showered all day.
It's ok to cry when you do get in the shower.
Dads, it's ok if you feel left out. Your partner still loves you, it's just, she's a mum now too.
It's ok to use formula milk.
Just like it's ok to use ready made pouches- Ella's Kitchen, I salute you.
It's ok to moan about how tired you are.
It's ok to sigh when someone tells you to "make the most of it". You are. You're just tired today.
It's ok if you haven't shifted your baby weight- who even has time for that?
It's ok if your baby isn't doing what another baby the same age is.
It's ok to not follow "the rules".  You know what's best for your baby.
It's ok to think your baby is the cutest thing ever. They are. Upload and share every bloody moment.
It's also ok to take hundreds of photos a day- going back to the annoying "make the most of it" thing, you won't get this time back.
It's ok if you forgot the nappies. Or the wipes. These things happen. You're tired.
It's ok if your baby isn't into that amazing routine that the other mums baby is in- your baby is probably cuter.
It's ok to consider nursery/childminding/other. You do what you have to do.
It's ok to invite yourself over to the other mums table at playgroup. I'm sure they'll be so happy to have another friend to moan to.
It's ok for dad's to go to playgroup too. We're all there for the same thing.
It's ok if your baby is the one throwing tantrums. Babies cry and I bet the other mums just got lucky that day.
It's ok to rely on CBeebies once in a while (or once a day)
and finally, it's ok. It's all gonna be ok.

  3. Oh my goodness, I love this post! I love being a mummy, cherish every moment (whatever the time) and wouldn't change my life for anything...but I haven't seen 8 hours sleep for 17 months, had a bowl of food thrown across the room last night and got woke up with my little lady kissing/licking my face at 5.30 this morning. It's ok though, and I am doing my best. Fab post and just what I needed to read xx
