Is there an off switch?

Four things you'll think about once you have children....

Once your baby has arrived many thoughts may cross your mind. It's inevitable that in the space of a day you'll think about impossible scenarios or even romantically miss your non baby life. It's ok! These questions go through the mind of every parent at some point...

Is there an off switch?

I'd be lying if I didn't think this a few times a day! You'll be feeling like you need to get stuff done or want a bit of headspace. Eagerly waiting until naptime comes and passes. Today for example my boys are only just having a nap at the same time. Kettle so swiftly put on and it's time to not watch cBeebies!!! Watch a box set that you want to watch to zone out while they nap.

When do I get to eat?

When baby is feeding with force and doesn't stop it can't help but make you feel hungry too! I can't have a day where I eat all meals when I think I should be but having snacks ready or fruit in a bowl does make this a little easier.

Do I have a faulty baby?

This is for the days that never seems to go right. The baby is screaming. No one feels happy and you end up shouting 'I don't know what to do'. I don't know about you but I've never been great at reading a baby's signals even though I was told it would be natural. Deep breaths are needed at this point but I also recommend speaking to a Cranio therapist or homeopath too. Chamomilla is a god send in our house!

When do I get me back?

This, of course, differs between women. It took me 3 years post natal the first time to come out of the parenting haze (that one that not enough coffee in the world can lift) and knowing my limits is difficult (ask Vicky who had my 'I can't wait til L is in nursery!' email this morning). This time I'm aware of what makes me feel in control and what doesn't. Make sure you treat yourself to some nice skin care or maybe a fancy change bag that doesn't look like a change bag? A new bra will make you feel more body confident too! All these things that make you feel like you!

What do you ask on a daily basis?
