It can be both thrilling and overwhelming to become a mom. It can feel like you are missing something, even if you have read all the blogs and baby books.

You will learn certain things along the way, truth be told. Soon, you'll realize that motherhood can only be learned when you are a mom yourself.

These are some other things that they won't tell you about motherhood.

1. Breastfeeding isn't glamorous or easy.

It's hard work, heavy breasts and being surrounded by your baby almost 24 hours a day. It's worth the effort and time to ensure your baby gets the best nutrition from breastmilk. It can be difficult to breastfeed, but it can be made easier with reliable nursing products such as a nursing bra or a nipple nursing, a lactation massager and a manual pump.

2. It will take a lot of trial-and-error.

Motherhood is always full of surprises, no matter how thorough your research. It's these moments that you learn and gain confidence as you adjust to your new role.

3. Recovery will take longer than you think.

Your body may take several months to completely recover. This is normal. Do not push yourself. Take it one day at the time. Your body is preparing to support you as a new mama, even though it might not be obvious.

A postnatal support belly band, skincare set and a recovery herbal bath soak could all help with your postpartum recovery.

4. All will be well.

The majority of the difficulties you face are temporary. It will get better. And remember, you are the best mama for your baby.

5. It is common to feel overwhelmed, drained and emotional.

There will be times when you feel overwhelmed at the same time. Ask for help to let you de-stress and relax. You deserve it. Self-care isn't selfish.

You might consider treating yourself to a facial roll, healthy snacks, or moisturizing lotion.

You don't get a book with you, but a mother does. We are here to help! NewBabyWishes offers you the chance to discover tips, stories and all things motherhood. You can also explore learning opportunities and shop for your baby's essentials.

Sizing Chart

Since every baby grows at his/her own pace, measure the baby's height for the best fit. It is much more accurate than going off of the baby's age. Call us with any questions and we will be happy to help you determine the best fit for your baby.
