Ignore that Promotional video with a beaming, at-ease new mother placing her cherubic (and sleeping) infant in his cot. Or the cheerful new mother doing household duties while her child squeals with delight on his playmat. In practice, events rarely unfold in this manner.

Being a mother is demanding but rewarding. There are both smiles and tears. There will be times when you simply want to curl up into a ball in a corner and cry, and there will be others when your heart just wants to explode with love and pride.

Here is a survival guide for new mothers, written specifically for you because motherhood may be mentally and physically taxing.

● For mothers who are sleep-deprived, co-sleeping can be a lifesaver.

When a baby falls asleep, a mother has a never-ending list of things to take care of. This is the perfect opportunity to complete some household tasks if you don't have a helper. You should also clean your teeth and, if you're fortunate, take a quick shower (with the door open, of course, in case the baby wakes up).

When do you then go to bed? Of course, if your child consistently naps for long periods of time, you may find the time to join him after you finish your other errands.

Co-sleeping is important for sleep while children are very young. When your child is old enough, if co-sleeping is not for you, think about developing a gentle bedtime ritual. Perhaps the solution is a warm bath, lots of cuddling, a gentle lullaby, and a cosy wrap.

● For some new mothers, breastfeeding can be tough.

If this is the situation for you, get assistance; it will help a lot. Breastfeeding!
You just need to put your boob in your child's mouth, right? However, nursing can be difficult for some new mothers (like with a first kid), at least initially.

But when faced with concerns like a low milk supply or feeding issues, many mothers frequently give up. When mothers ran through similar issues with their first child, they come dangerously close to giving up as well.

They might be able to persevere for more than years thanks to their husband's encouragement and visits to a breastfeeding consultant. Of course, mothers have the right to decide whether or not to breastfeed. However, you should think about going to a lactation consultant straight away so they can demonstrate proper latch and hold procedures.

● Sometimes a little bit of help can go a long way!

Now that you are a mother, your body is gorgeous in a whole other way! Undoubtedly, becoming pregnant is an amazing experience. However, it entails significant physical changes in your body that could continue even after you give birth.

Therefore, don't be shocked if your baby belly persists even six months after giving birth or if you have stretch marks in locations, you never anticipated having them. Of course, there are also the breasts.

Some new mothers may find it challenging to adjust to their new post-baby bodies, and it doesn't help when that well-meaning (but nosy) aunty inquires about your current pregnancy. Of course, there is also the pressure that mothers experience from the media, which sensationalises tales of famous mothers who get back to their pre-baby shapes after giving birth.

Remember that those celebs have an entire team of trainers, stylists, and nutritionists at their disposal to get them back into shape if all this pressure gets to you. Your breasts are now feeding that little new life, even if they may not be the exact size or shape you desire. Like nothing or no one else can, your powerful arms can hold and comfort your newborn. Your stomach may be floppy and saggy, but what a miracle it was to sustain life for nine months!

Try to ignore the doubters and give yourself some time (and a break) to gradually get back into a mild fitness regimen. You are truly perfect.

● "Before postpartum depression develops from the newborn blues, overcoming the newborn blues

Do you know what the "baby blues" are? It's a condition that new mothers could suffer in the initial days following childbirth. The responsibilities of a new infant and occasionally hormonal fluctuations can make these mothers feel worn out, irritated, pleased one minute, and unhappy the next.

These emotions typically pass after a week or two. However, postpartum depression, a more severe disease, can occasionally arise from the baby blues (PPD).

If you believe you are unable to meet your baby's needs, ask for assistance from others. This will enable you to obtain as much rest, wholesome diet, and exercise as you can, all of which are necessary to maintain a healthy mind and body and prevent PPD. Don't be afraid to talk to your doctor if you believe you may be suffering from PPD.

As a mother, you are blessed with an instinct that, when it comes to your child's wellness, is frequently accurate. You'll be alright if you follow this instinct. Never forget that you and your child share the same world. And since the beginning of time, parenting has been centred around this.
