- FEELING OBESE:
Most moms after pregnancy tend to feel obese due to the weight gain that takes place during pregnancy. And seeing other moms with perfect figures will increase your frustration even a bit more. Many of the moms think that the horrifying tummy will get back to place once the baby comes out but unfortunately that doesn’t happen.
Here are a few ways through which you can work on losing weight:
- Light exercise
- Healthy diet
- Walking around with your baby.
- STRUGGLE WITH BREASTFEEDING:
Breastfeeding in most cases is a natural culmination after giving birth to babies. But it might happen that due to some problems it might not happen naturally. But there is nothing to get guilt cracked regarding this fact as there might be a lot of reasons if you are struggling with breastfeeding.
- Not enough lactation
- Too much stress
- Baby didn’t latch properly.
So instead of struggling with what mothers can do easily and pressurizing themselves, focus on better solutions for you and your baby.
- SLEEP DEPRIVATION:
More than 50% of parents have sleep deprivation problems. Mostly it is a dream for mothers with a newborn baby to get 7-8 hours of uninterrupted sleep.
Here are a few reasons for sleep deprivation:
- Irregular and frequent feeding
- Wetting and soiling
- Anxiety about babies’ care.
Sleep for everyone is essential especially for emotionally and physically vulnerable new moms. But it is easy to tackle with little management and support.
- EXPERIENCING HORMONAL CHANGES:
As soon as you conceive the whole world and psychology change for you. The estrogen, progesterone, HCG, and prolactin levels, go up and down making the person unrecognizable and pretty daunting. You might feel tired all the time, irritable, insomniac, and get a tendency to gain weight due to all these hormonal changes.
Some ways to tackle them are:
- INCREASE IN INTAKE OF FIBRE
- VITAMIN D
- AVOID CAFFEINE AND ALCOHOL
- NO TIME FOR SPOUSE:
After the birth of the newborn life becomes all about dirty diapers, timely feedings, and panicking about the smallest things. Somewhere in all of that romance seems to disappear. Cultivating a happy relationship with your partner is not only necessary for both of you but also your child. Communication is the key to all these problems though.
Life after a baby certainly changes dramatically. There are a number of problems faced by new moms, but nine of them can be taken care of. Families do have issues but that is just a part of being in a family. So, even as a new mom you must know that you are not alone in your problems and you are trying your best for your baby.
