Mandy didn’t hold back about how she felt after welcoming her son, admitting, “I think when his needs really started to change … I felt this rush of like, ‘I’m not enough for him. I don’t know how to be his mother. I know how to feed him, but beyond that, am I fit for that? ‘”
“I felt so ineffective, and I was looking at my husband who seemed to have a supernatural ability to take care of Gus,” she continued. He could make him smile. He could make him laugh. She lay on the ground and rolled with him. And I felt like whatever I did wasn’t right, and I couldn’t get him to do it. sleep, and it made me feel awful. “
Although Mandy said she is still “learning”, she also explained that she is embracing the process.
“I don’t know anything, but I’m still here to test myself by just stopping and breathing,” he added. “Recognizing that I am the best when I trust my instincts, remembering that everything is a phase.”
