Hope you're having a great day today...
I've been thinking about another idea for the BH Army. It is only just an idea for now ... so it might be hard to explain.
I've been thinking of putting together an article for Bub Hub with 'letters' that you - as a mum (especially a new mum) - would like to write to other people in your life. The letters would be to tell them how you feel and what you need from them at this point in your life.
Not necessarily to send to them but to justify and to gain perspective on your feelings and expectations ...
OK, if you're still reading then thanks!
Here is an example of things you might write in a 'letter' to your childless friends (for one example).
"I can't wait for you to meet my new baby but please don't be offended if we can't sit down and eat cake and drink coffee while we chat. I may not even have any milk in the house ... if you're driving over maybe a quick text to ask if there is anything you can bring."
"If the baby is hungry I may not be comfortable feeding him/her in front of you yet. Breastfeeding is a natural thing, but it doesn't always come naturally. We are both still learning and I might be embarrassed at my fumbling attempts."
Anyway - do you get my drift? You could write similar letters to your husband, your mum/mil or maybe some dads would like to write one to their wife ...
Who would you like to write a 'letter' to? And what would you put in it?
