Isablog #27 – Feelings of Baby Regret & Getting Sick From the Baby

If you read this blog regularly, which if you do then a big thank you, I can’t believe you keep coming back, then you’ll know that last week Isabelle wasn’t very well. Unfortunately, that little bit of sickness managed to transfer all the way into me. Yay! And the best part about all of it? It all started during the Superbowl! I know I did a post last week where I talked about not being as bothered by the NFL as I used to be, and I’d be fine with missing some of it if Isabelle needed me, but I…

As you may already know with this blog, I like to keep things honest. So I’m going to start things off by saying this week started with me struggling. This isn’t the first time since considering myself clear of postnatal depression that I’ve struggled, and I know that it won’t be the last. Depression is a massive part of my life, and it’s always going to be there; I think at this point, it’s just a fact.

How Babywearing Might Help with Postnatal Depression

For me personally, babywearing is something that I feel really started to make a big difference with my postnatal depression. In essence, it gave me and Isabelle something to do together that she actually loved. Not only that, but it kept us connected and close whenever I did it.
