Being a mum is a huge miracle, but it can also be quite a struggle!

Motherhood does not come with a manual, and most mums just have to learn on the go! Here are a few things every new mum can probably relate to.

 

1. Not getting enough sleep because your baby won’t stop crying

3. Being confused every single time your baby starts to cry

 

4. Constantly bursting into tears because you just don’t know what to do
