Double post today - sorry guys! 🙈 • Today I chose to live in the moment. Today I chose to be positive. Today I chose to make the most of the hours.🌻 • I am proud of myself today. Not only was it a great day but, I also managed to get a fair amount done around the house! Plus, this week has been the first time I have looked after Aurelia SOLO! (From 4am-4pm). It’s been a long 8 weeks getting to where I am, compared to where I was but I am so thankful for my mum and Ashley. • • Anyway, I even managed to get around to taking photos with my beautiful daughter. She’s the reason I am working on myself, and why I get up in the morning (even though it’s a struggle some mornings). You complete me, and I can’t wait for what’s in store for our family! 🥰 • • #twobecamethree #motherhood #journey #6weeksold #newborn #motherdaughter #bottlefeeding #clusterfeeding #motherhoodunited #family #firsttime #fourthtrimester #motherhoodblog #baby #whatsnext #lifestyleblogger #motherhoodunplugged #sunshine #mum #motherhoodrising #truthfulmotherhood #honestmotherhood #babyspam #babyfever #babyblog #instagood #instababies #babiesbabiesbabies #postpartum

I’m certainly feeling like this... anyone else? #Repost @daisyfirstaid with @get_repost ・・・ Waaaa, who's feeling a bit like this at the moment?!

Just done a quick stocktake and I only have 8 bibs left 😳 I will be restocking these but won’t be for a couple of weeks. I have a new set of colours as well coming just in time for Christmas. If you haven’t seen the reviews, check them out in my highlights, they don’t disappoint 👌🏻 . . . . #dribblebib #bibs #reusable #bur#burpcloth> #nursery #breastmilk #burpcloth #nurserydecor #nurseryinspo #breastfed #fedisbest #newmum #bab#babyshowergift #mumtobe #fourthtrimester #thirdtrimester #babyshower #newborn #mummyblog #mumbloggers

I like to have the postpartum visit usually 1-2 weeks after the birth. I meet with the family to reflect, process, and chat about the transition into the postpartum period. And all the baby snuggles too! 💛 Grateful for the opportunity to be this beautiful momma’s doula. 💕 . . . . . . . . . #childbirth #postpartum #doula #douladoreen #birthdoula #4thtrimester #fourthtrimester #birthwork #sisterhood #doulasupport

What is your favorite thing about fall?

We made it through the 4th trimester… and yes, this has been the best one yet! The last three months have been some of the most special in all my life. . . I’m completely in awe of my little milk monster. She’s such a miracle and gift! Every day I get to wake up to her cheeky little smiles, sometimes too in the middle of the night 🤦‍♀️ . . Watching her play and learn new things gives me so much joy. Yes, it can be tough to constantly tend to a baby and barely get time for yourself - getting up multiple times a night; not being able to stay out late or go to all the places and restaurants you want to go to; not being able to work out, blog or commit to as many things; and, of course, being constantly being sleep deprived… But those things really pale in comparison to the joy I have caring for Elleni every day. I couldn’t imagine my life without my little sweet cheeks now! And yet, I’m not gonna lie, I’m always more than happy when Da-da takes her for a bit so I can go and do stuff. 😆

Yesterday was our first full day home together, just Frederick, Arlington and myself! We survived. However as soon as Darian walked in the door the boys were all his. Me: “here take this” hands him a clean nappy for Freddie “and this” hands him Arlo. The main thing is we survived 😅

For me the transition to motherhood was far from smooth or easy. The birth of my first daughter was traumatic, although I didn’t realise until long after. My recovery was slow and complicated and our breastfeeding journey was difficult. It’s only now, more than 3 years later that I am beginning to consciously and slowly unpack this transition of self identity and the journey as I begin to discover a new version of me. . . . . . #slowmotherhood #postpartum #doulasupport #houseworkcanwait #birthtrauma #fourthtrimester #birthmatters #fedisbest
