I still fondly remember my first days of being a new mom.
It was a weave of emotions: contentment, bliss, anxiousness, uncertainty.
After successfully placing our car seat inside our car with our newborn daughter inside, the hospital in the distance as we slowly (very slowly…) drove away, both my husband and I sat in silence and wondering in our heads: That’s it. We’re on our own now.
We were young, inexperienced and although elated and overjoyed to have our little girl coming home, we didn’t know what to expect.
This is so common for all new moms. I even had a whole new bout of emotions after my 2nd child was born — I even suffered from post-partum blues (see my post here).
I believe it’s just the motherly protectiveness that overpowers and because we just want to make sure they’re OK.
It’s always great to have support and advice from seasoned mothers and even just solace from other mothers that are going through the same thing.
I was happy to be chosen to be part of the new Mom Trust Program which is affiliated with Playtex Mommyville. I jumped at the opportunity to participate because I understand and appreciate how valuable a community like Mom Trust is for all new moms alike.
The Mom Trust program is a virtual, North American network of moms (10 from Canada and 10 from the US). The vision for this program is to have influential moms share their stories, tips, insights and unique experiences of motherhood, while also providing reviews on amazing Playtex products.
Did I mention I cannot live without my Playtex Diaper Genie Elite?
