While I did feel deep love and a strong connection to my baby after he was born, I was not prepared for how constant and exhausting caring for a newborn is. I had many ideals for how I would mother and found myself “failing” in most of them – breastfeeding, cloth diapering, and just being the perfect mom with the perfect baby. …I felt like a burden to my family and had trouble asking for the help I needed and was also afraid to share the thoughts I had.
