I feel that we are very hard on ourselves sometimes because there is a lot of pressure out there on mums, breastfeeding or not, co-sleeping or not, feed to sleep or not… it looks as if there is no way to win in this blame game, it doesn’t matter what you do, you will always be doing something wrong in the eyes of some “expert”… that is why I decided that we are doing what is best for us and that is it! She is growing and is happy and that is all that matters!
It is incredible how good it feels to talk with other moms about anything! We met a friend on Monday and we went to a ‘Walk and Talk” at West Ham park yesterday and what a great way to connect and feel heard, even if you are just talking about sleep (or lack of)! Hearing others happiness and struggles gives you a perspective about what is going on with you that is almost problem solving! Definitely is something I am needing. Isabela was so puzzle when she saw a baby for the first time!
