All mothers have to deal with having self-doubt. We are constantly wondering if we are doing the right thing and if we are raising our children the way were are supposed to be raising them. It is a constant circle of being completely in love with our offspring and then being completely lost! After Holt reached out to her followers on Instagram she got a lot of support from many of other mothers. Many mothers gave her advice about how to get through the newborn stages and learning how to breastfeed. One mother said that she took "2 days off" and decided to just pump and dump, so she could get some sleep. It is important to do what works for you and as long as your child is fed you shouldn't have any guilt.
One mother shared and said that being a mother is the hardest and most rewarding journey! Women do not know how hard being a mother is until they become a mother. There are no amount of books that can help you fully understand what it will be like to have bleeding nipples because your child won't latch properly. Nothing can prepare you for the intense exhaustion you will feel when your baby wakes up every two hours to suck you dry! Always remember that you are not alone and all mothers have gone through the same struggles!
Keep up the good work Claire Holt! You are doing amazing! You are a beautiful and an amazing mother!
