I actually wrote this post when Brooke was 8 weeks old but for some reason didn’t post it until now. Hopefully it can help any moms reading that are struggling with that post baby body:)
Let’s be honest here mkay. After you have a baby your body just isn’t the same for a while. I’ve got a lovely thick brown line that runs down my stomach that I don’t think will ever disappear and even though some of my old clothes may fit again my body obviously doesn’t look the same.
I feel like I am doing better with the whole situation than I ever thought I would but I still have moments where I struggle with some of the changes that have occurred.
For those moments that I start thinking negative about my post baby body I found the solution.
Go find your baby wherever they may be even if they are sleeping in their crib. You go stare at that beautiful face real hard and realize that your body MADE that face, those wiggly toes, those baby thighs that you just want to gobble up, their tongue that they are still trying to figure out what in the world that is and I guarantee you will forget about those stretch marks or the jeans that don’t zip up because that baby’s face makes you realize what is really important.
Even though our bodies go through crazy changes and you don’t always feel secure in your own skin you really just have to think about that little baby and you will appreciate and thank your body for creating the best thing in your world.
