So, the baby is now 3 months old and my partner is back at work full-time. Now that I’m by myself with her, I am noticing how I still really don’t feel like myself. Is this normal? When will I?

Tania posted June 5I felt the same way. There’s so much to adjust to! New body, new schedule, new family dynamic, Give yourself time but also check in with a doctor if you feel it worsening. Here for you mama! 0 Likes
Angie posted June 5Don’t be afraid to ask for help. We need to talk more about postpartum depression. But it is normal to feel this way, too. Take it one day at a time and talk to other new mom’s. It helps! 0 Likes
Judy posted June 9A lot of things can make us feel not ourselves. Hormone changes, postpartum depression, diet, not enough sleep. Hope this helps. 0 Likes
Aliza posted June 17Oh, I thought you said your child was 3 years old and I thought “Good it’s not just me...😉” I still miss aspects of my life before kids! You’ll find over time it gets easier but being alone with the baby in the house day after day is a prescription for disaster. I know COVID doesn’t make it easy, but you have to get out of that house and around other people. Even 6 feet apart is better than feeling so isolated at home with this enormous responsibility on your shoulders. I kept the TV on when I was home just hear other voices. 0 Likes
