When your beautiful/handsome newborn came what was your biggest challenge.
PPD with one, PPA with another, breastfeeding challenges with one, and sleep with another.
It's been different with each of my kids.
With my oldest son, I can't really say what was the biggest since it all happened at once and the combination was so incredibly overwhelming it's impossible to separate one thing from another. My son was teething at birth and he had colic, so he screamed 18 hours per day for the first 6 months. I also started chemo when he was 6 weeks old and had a 2 yr. battle to become cancer free.
With my daughter, everything was easy. Basically, keeping the cats out of her crib was the biggest challenge I had.
With my youngest, it was the time we were in the hospital after he was born. He was in the hospital for 6 days, the last 2 days in the NICU. We had a lot of issues and I could write a book about everything that happened....some turned out good, some was horrible and has had lasting impacts.
trying to shed the baby weight
With my first it was nursing because we had trouble with the latching. With my second it was probably sleep deprivation since my first was still waking up during the night too. With this new little one there hasn't really been a challenge yet but my husband is still on paternity leave so that's probably why. Lol!
