“I’m not worried about my after-baby body”: These photos of British singer Stacey Solomon from the first 16 days with her baby show what it’s like to have a baby.
This mom really shows how she feels after the birth of her baby. On May 23, 2019, the third baby of the British singer Stacey Solomon (29) was born. Since then, the happy mom of three sons and dad Joe Swash (37) are documenting their first days with their cute baby on Instagram – and of course, without any filters or whitewashing.
The pictures show a lot of love and happiness, but also moments that are rarely seen from births and the first time with baby : blood on the head of the baby and the sheets, plastic pads, because the mother still loses blood even after birth, or even the shrinking baby bump – Stacey shows quite openly, what belongs to the birth of a child. Alternately with Papa Joe, Stacey writes to the touching news:
Much earlier than expected, I was allowed to watch the love of my life give birth to a new life, we are overwhelmed, overjoyed and concerned about what is to come, mother and baby are fine, they are resting So grateful for all the love and support we’ve received over the past 8 months , I do not have the words to describe how I feel, so I’m starting now, the next few days, and the rest of my life spend the day falling in love with these two people, today I’ve seen the impossible happen, my partner, my love, my life, you’re superhuman, I’m forever awesome, Joe X. “
“Welcome home, my darling, I feel ridiculously emotional today, always close to tears, he is just so tiny and precious and I want to give him the best I can, I never thought I would say that but if I could put him back in my stomach for another year, I would do it. “
“Today I really got it, I miss my baby bump and my baby inside of me, I do not feel I appreciated it enough while I was pregnant, and now it’s over, Joe and I did not have a picture of myself The idea of not having that memory really got me started today, so Joe and his dad helped me get a picture of what’s left of my baby bump to cheer me up, I love her so much It’s not the same, but still means the world to me.
And for all those people who asked if I’m looking forward to getting my pre-baby body back and whether I want to work out – I hate those questions. They are meaningless. And not important or relevant. Nobody knows how we’ll feel, and how we look after birth is our least concern. The truth is, I’m devastated, my stomach is getting smaller day by day. I wish he could stay a little bit longer. I feel empty and hollow. Not to mention that I have the feeling of being boxed in the vagina 💙 “.
“Today is a good day.” It was an interesting week, it feels like the fog is slowly setting in. I am so thankful that I have our little boy with me and surrounded by my incredible family – my biggest one Privilege.
However, this does not mean that everything was rosy and shiny. Hormone boobs + really trouble with breastfeeding + no sleep + stuffed breasts + chapped nipples + even something as small as kissing my baby’s head = total collapse.
At least twice a day I sank spontaneously and uncontrollably sobbing into the arms of my mother. Then I feel guilty that I do not ‘enjoy every second’, as everyone tells you, because time goes by so fast (and she does, my Elder is 11 and I feel like I just blinked and it’s already the time passed). But sometimes I just can not control my feelings and can not feel guilty when I have sad moments, that’s counterproductive.
And for anyone else who feels or feels that way: Do not think that you were not good enough, it was you and it’s you. It’s okay not to be okay.
I would also like to thank all the nurses, midwives and paediatricians. Our midwives in the community and the nurse, who literally milked me for hours and tried to drain my milk from under the breasts and the armpits, as well as the psychiatric services for new parents in our area, who are so attentive and always there when we see them need . 💙 I think of all those who do not have a support system around them. If you need someone to talk to, please do not be afraid to ask for help . “

“I’m jealous, I can not wait to sleep like my baby.”

“I try to smile, so I look every time I put it on, I did not breastfed Leighton, and I do not remember how it was with Zach, so it was a bit of a shock that my breastfeeding experience was not so blissful Milk did not come so easily, at times my nipples felt like they had been sanded with sandpaper, but I think we’re getting it so slowly, and after much help from lactation consultant, it works so slowly that my baby puts on his mouth and milk comes ,
It does not always work and maybe it never really works, but that’s okay. I think of all those who have trouble breastfeeding – that’s fine, nothing is wrong with you and you’re doing great. Sometimes it’s hard to believe that when I see all the pictures of happy nursing mothers. I love them, but for someone who finds it really hard to breastfeed, it’s also nice to see that others also have similar experiences. The main thing is, it works somehow. Breast or bottle, dear mothers, YOU ARE INCREDIBLE! 💪🏼 “
Dear Stacey, thank you very much for sharing these beautiful pictures. We wish you and your family all the best for the future!
