I’m a survivor 💜—five-week-old baby

New motherhood can feel so unfamiliar. Your pants don't fit, your overfilled boobs wet through your shirt, your baby thinks 3 am is a great time to party ? and you haven't seen the sunlight since last week. Our answer? Stretchy pants (our faves here), nursing pads, afternoon naps and at least one walk outside per day. (To find the nearest coffee shop, of course.) Good news ahead—baby's first real smile is just around the corner, and you so deserve it, mama.
