Does the idea of being a mom scare you just a little bit?
Are you worried that you aren’t doing all the right things for your children?
Do you feel overwhelmed on a daily basis because you aren’t sure how to handle teething/feeding issues/behavior??
Well, Mom, you’re in the right place!
Hi, I’m Erin, and I’ve been in the exact spot you are.
I’m now a seasoned mom of two (including a teenager…yikes!), but I remember when I first became pregnant with my oldest, I was scared to death.
I had always wanted children, and my husband and I planned for those babies, creating a home and life that would be perfect for raising them.
But on the morning I found out I was finally expecting, I felt sick…and it wasn’t just the morning sickness.
I was terrified that there was a baby inside of me and the only way that it was coming out was through a lot of pain and scary changes to my body.
But over the months that followed, as I found that things weren’t as scary as they had seemed, I grew more comfortable with the idea of giving birth.
After getting the baby home, there came another set of fears:
- Will I ever sleep again?
- Why can’t I get the hang of breastfeeding? Isn’t it supposed to come naturally?
- If I hold my baby too much, will she become spoiled?
- How is it possible to clean the house/cook dinner/do laundry when I have a baby to take care of?
I scanned baby books to get answers to my questions of what to do in specific situations. Most of the time, there was nothing in them to help me.
This often led me to more anxiety…I reasoned that if the book didn’t have advice on that problem, it probably meant that something was wrong with my baby that never happened to anyone else.
Most days, I felt like the worst mom in the world.
How can I be a good mom?
Unless you grew up babysitting very young children, or have a lot of brothers and sisters that you helped care for, you probably didn’t have much experience with babies and toddlers.
That was certainly the case for me.
I just didn’t know how the hospital could let me take my baby home, since I knew almost nothing on how to take care of her!
But over time, I earned my MOM credentials through experience and a lot of trial and error.
And I found a desire to pass on some of that knowledge to new moms who are struggling with motherhood and feeling a little bit lost, yet have a great desire to be good moms to their children.
That’s why I wrote The Mom Reality: What Parenting Books Never Tell You.
