BABY ON THE BRAIN

FOCUS ON THE FAMILY

First time mums often say that once the baby comes, they turn into a different person.

 

Things they used to enjoy doing suddenly hold no interest to them.

 

They lose their desire to read or exercise or go to yoga classes.

 

And cleaning house is the last thing on their minds. All they want to do is hold and care for their new baby.

 

They develop a serious case of “baby on the brain”, and wonder if they’ll ever snap out of it.

 

The good news is, it’s a natural phenomenon. In fact, it’s an integral part of the bonding process, and almost all new mothers experience it to some degree.

 

You’re not losing your mind, you’re just temporarily distracted – and that’s a very good thing.
