{Raising Little People} How do I know my baby loves me?

Through the heavy fog of sleeplessness.

Through the darkest of morning hours.

Through the endless minutes of howling.

Through the tears of frustration.

Having a newborn is tough. Some days are good. Some days are not.

Some nights are sleepy. Some nights are not.

Knowing that it is worthwhile can be a difficult concept to remember.

Essential Baby have put together a beautifully written article to remind you that it is worth it. That you are loved. That you are enough.

Five ways your baby shows that you are loved is an article that should be shared. newborn

Somehow it just resinated with me.

You too are enough. I promise.

Oi, mumma – a new perspective

Sometimes everybody needs to be reminded that your best is good enough. You are doing so much better than you realise. While parenthood is hard and testing, it can also be the most rewarding experience of your life.

Do you think you aren’t patient enough? Are you not understanding enough? Are you not doing a good enough job?

You are enough.

This very clever video posted on Vimeo shows mothers sharing their worries, their concerns and reflecting on their parenting abilities. Then their children explain what they actually see in their mothers.

Take the time to watch this. Grab the tissues. Then forward it to all your friends who might need a little reminding that they to are enough.
