Mommy Moments – Here Comes The Baby!

mommy moments

Friday is here once again and it is time to share your mommy story with us! Today we are sharing about our babies and the first months of being a mom to them…

My eldest was born after 12 hours of labor…

My 2nd was born after 7 hours of labor…
When my eldest was born, we stayed in the hospital for 2 days and went home to stay with my in-laws. My eldest was the first apo and you can imagine the attention she got. I was still adjusting to being a mom and I also had to adjust to staying with my in-laws so it was really tough the first few months. I also wanted to breastfeed my baby, so even if she was already bottle fed, I really persisted until we were successfully breastfeeding exclusively! The first few months are really special… and each moment was something that I didn’t want to forget.


When my 2nd child came, we were already living in our own house. But after 2 days of being home, my son was really yellowish so our pediatrician at that time wanted us to hospitalize him so he can be checked if he had sepsis. Thank God after 5 days of being hospitalized, we were discharged and he was diagnosed as having breastfeeing jaundice. It was a challenge to take care of a baby and a toddler at the same time. The first few months, my daughter who was less than 3 years old had to adjust as well. She was used to being the “star” but now she had to share her mommy with this new baby. It took a month before everything settled down and she loved taking care of her little brother.


Every day is special and I don’t ever want to forget these memories I have of my kids when they were babies… hope you join us today! Happy mommy moments!
