We’ve had a lot of changes in our home lately all stemming from the arrival of one tiny little bundle of joy. We’d spent months getting ready for him. We took birth and parenting classes, read books, decorated the nursery, washed all his baby clothes, and searched to find the perfect pediatrician.
We thought we were prepared.
Oh, were we wrong. So very wrong.
As a new mom every day brings something new. My nights are sleepless and the days are filled with cute baby smiles, feedings and dirty diapers. The only constant is that all normalcy has been thrown out the window. Permanently.
Like my husband often says, there’s not a book in the world that can prepare you for this. And I wouldn’t change a thing.
Out of everything we did, the one thing that I’m positive will have an real impact on his life are the changes in my diet.
Before I got pregnant, my diet was healthy. I ate whole foods and mostly organic. But it was ‘just me’ I had to think about. There were times when I was ok making a dietary compromise.
