Leto - goddess of motherhood

There is nothing like being a mom. I have never sacrificed so much, slept so little or loved so deeply as I have as a mother. I'm sure I'm not very different from other moms. I love my baby so much sometimes that I almost feel like I'll throw up. I feel so much anxiety about feeding him the right things, making sure he gets enough sleep, enough attention, enough 'tummy time', and I constantly worry about his safety, health and I'm sure everything else. I plan my life around nap time and feedings because to me life is just easier and happier with a content baby than with a grumpy one.

Hopefully you can find some advice that helps you in your mothering, but mostly I hope you can find companionship and an encouraging word once in a while. Cause you know as a mother we all need it.
