Hello cafe moms!! I'm a new mom and I stay at home with my 4 month old son. Question how long does it take to get use to being a parent? Being a mom is a different world don't get me wrong it's very rewarding but I sit n think about my life before baby.. I miss getting up n going , sleeping ,having a glass of wine( nursing) trips the whole single life.... I want to enroll in school but my son crys with everyone except me my husband and my 13 yr old sissy... I just have to let to of my past and focus on my new world.. I guess I can take it day by day nothing changes over night any suggestion on how to let go and move on

It gets easier with time but I dont think you truly get "used" to being a parent. There's always something new happening. My boys are 5 and 7 and I admit I am still learning and probably always will be. Lol.
Btw, congratulations and welcome!

Welcome to the group! I'm Alanna :)
It will get easier, your baby is only 4 months so you are still adjusting to being a mom. It's crazy how your life changes in one day when you have your baby. I remember feeling just like you lol.

That's totally normal! This is all new to you. You're learning along the way. If you have a second down the road it will be so easy because you know what to expect and you've already been through it. It gets easier when your baby gets older too. There are very needy at 4 months!

Its ealready easier from the first 2 months of birth they were really tough.. that was a really needy time...My husband asked me how long am I going to nurse I said for 1 yr he said that's too long... I said not really because babies drink formula until they are 1 and ppl nurse longer than a yr

Life and family schedules are always changing.  It won't be long before he is in school and you will find more time to devote to your studies.  Before you know it, he will be all grown up and you will have your independence back.

Just bide your time.  That's what I did lol.

I remember feeling like that when DS was tiny. You get use to it...sometimes it takes a while to get adjusted. I think DS was about 8 months when I felt like a real mom. DD is 7 months and I miss sleep too...DD mainly only wants me too. Can you pump? Maybe pump a bottle and see if he will take it from someone else to give you a break
