When I had my daughter I sincerely thought I was going to die. My husband worked and wasn’t used to a new baby either and would give me a push out of bed to take care of her. She screamed non stop. She hated the hot weather, she wouldn’t nurse, and the bath oh my gosh it scared me so bad that I couldn’t move.
I thought the baby screaming meant I was doing something wrong. I had no help and at 3 weeks I went with my mom, and Sarena to our family reunion in Tennessee. This was the best thing that ever happened to me. All of these elderly women with advice and finally saying as I bawled “Aww honey, babies cry”. Wouldn’t it be awesome of babies came with instructions?
