Relaxed mum, relaxed baby

My baby turned 3 months this week. I can't believe how time has flown, he now weighs about 3kg more than at birth and has grown about 10cms. He started to laugh, see colour and try to grasp things. At his check up, the pediatrician was amazed to see he is already trying to pull himself forward.

E is such a happy baby, sleeps better, smiles more etc. I feel that a lot of that has to do with the fact that this time around, I am so relaxed. With my daughter, I wanted to be the best mother there is, but I tried too hard, so I don't know if her fussiness had something to do with colic or with me being tense and over analytical.

I still want to be the best mother there is, but because of my experience with my daughter, I don't try too hard. I just am.

You see, I learnt a secret, I will always be the best mother to my children, all I need is to be me.

Happy mother, happy baby. Relaxed mother, relaxed baby.
Have a great weekend.


  1. I feel the same way and I'm glad someone said it. I get guilty wondering if my fussy little girl was because of me being too tense and analytical my first time around. Love this post! Thank you!

  2. I think it's normal to be tense and over analytical sometimes especially with high achieving mums. It's important that we give each other a reality check now and then to remember to just enjoy the moment and not over worry. I have been worrying a bit lately and rereading this post because of your comment has helped me all over again!
