15All That Stress
Babies are adorable, there’s no doubt about it, but they’re also come with a lot of stress, all wound up into that cute bundle of love. All of the crying and other issues that happen can go hand in hand with parenthood, leaving mom and dad feeling like they’re falling apart. And
this can lead to things going downhill.
Stress isn’t good for anyone, and babies can seem like they just come pre-equipped with enough stress to make someone feel like they’re losing it.
If the baby is overly stressful on the parents and they need a break, they should ask for help. Seriously, there’s almost always someone willing to step in for a few hours to give mom and dad a break, so that they can recover their energy and not take it out on one another.
Ask for help if it’s needed, for everyone’s sake. And remember to breathe, and try to keep calm. This too, will pass.
