The fourth trimester can feel like a daunting time for many parents. It’s important to remember that these days will fly by in the blink of an eye. Before you know it, your little bundle is going to be walking, talking and becoming more independent. And believe it or not, one day she won’t want to be held in your arms.
So my biggest piece of fourth trimester advice for you is:
- Enjoy these moments.
- Enjoy the late nights, middle of the night feedings and the nights without sleep.
- Remember that this time quickly comes to an end. Your baby will start to get into a routine and life will get easier.
- Before you realize anything has changed, you’ll look back and remember these days. The days when you were filled with exhaustion and overwhelm… and you’ll miss them!
- Treasure every moment, and remember that this hard season of life is just that- a season. It will pass, and you’ll be left wondering where the time went.
