32 Things I Have Googled Since Having A Baby

first time mum, being a first time mum, having a newborn baby, this stuff is golden, anxiety after pregnancy,

As you may know, on Friday 17th November I gave birth to my daughter.

It still feels strange to say that, my daughter, as having her in my life still feels completely alien to me and my SO. However, we are learning everyday and doing the very best that we can.

When one is clueless to why their newborn is crying at 4am after just two hours sleep, you bet that there is going to be a huge online search history to try and stop that crying – just for a little bit of quiet and potentially a little bit more sleep.

    So what I’m getting from this is a dread of ever breastfeeding and also a sudden urge to nap because I should store up all the sleep I can get NOW before I ever decide to get pregnant! Right??

    Also, you’re doing great. Even the fact that you are self-aware to google all of these things means you’re doing great!
