What I'm about to say, I'm sure you've heard before... But it's repeated often because it's true. No one knows what they're doing. Parenting is a constant challenge. It's like playing a game with no instruction and you get surprise rewards every now and then and new things to level up on. It's a lot of work but it's also really amazing. The first year is (in my mind) the hardest. Keep in mind that most everything is a phase and you'll get through it. Be honest about your feelings and your struggles. PPA/D are very real and it's important to get outside help for that. For most everything else, lean on other parents. You're not alone.

Truly appreciate this. The love and support from other moms out there has been overwhelmingly incredible.
