Babies have a perfect home inside their mothers and then they are introduced to a world of uncertainty. No wonder they cry soon after they’re born!!! In the womb they have everything at their fingertips!
The quandary is, when parents are caring for these new treasures it takes its toll because both parties are adjusting. I guess because the baby isn’t able to be the adult the adult must be!
Thank goodness there is a lot of support, if not from families and friends, from community groups. I don’t want to write too much and interrupt nap times, but just say what an amazing job new mothers and fathers are doing and the sleep does come back; the deprivation is only temporary! Imagine explaining to the baby though that there is no turning back!!
