First time mommy

Hi ladies! I'm a first time mommy of an 8 week old baby boy. I am loving being a mom but finding it's a lot harder than I expected being alone so much. My husband is at Ft. benning (out in the field this week and last). Dealing with a colicky baby is hard when you're alone all the time!! But, I absolutely adore my little boy.

Congrats on your little one, and welcome to the group! Being a mom in general is hard work, and doing it alone is also very stressful. *hugs* I hope the rough times pass quickly and the good times go slowly!

Welcome and congrats!  I don't think motherhood was ever supposed to be this isolated but we have a jacked up culture. You have to build a village and create that support that everyone needs. Maybe start with a playgroup.

Congrats. Is your dh at basic in Benning or are you stationed there?

No. It was my dh's first duty station way back when. We will eventually end up there because he will have to go to the 3/75 at some point.

Welcome!  Taking care of a newborn alone is never easy, but at least they are adorable little stinkers to make it worth it :)
