Losing your identity after having a baby

While having a baby can change your life in the most amazing ways, some new moms struggle because they feel like they have lost the person they used to be. Talk about a postpartum identity crisis. If this sounds like you, then don’t worry mama, you’re not alone. Many new parents feel this way, and there are some things you can do to help you adjust to this exciting new journey. 

Think about the things that make up your identity; hobbies, career, lifestyle, friendships, relationships…these are some of the things that reflect who you are as a person. Now, when you have a baby, many of these choices change and are replaced by new responsibilities. You’re no longer just responsible for you, but a whole new person. And that person’s needs often have to come first. While this can be a tough adjustment, it means that some of your priorities have to shift. 

You might no longer have the time for self-care, hobbies, seeing friends, having spontaneous date nights, and your career might also need to take a little break. We understand that this can make you feel sad at times and even lost. You might have tried to prepare yourself for these changes, but when reality hits, they can still take you by surprise. 

Now, before you start feeling guilty, having these feelings DOES NOT make you a “bad” parent. It doesn’t mean you don’t love your gorgeous little babe. It just means you need to some time to rediscover yourself and adjust. Rediscovering yourself as a mom can take time, so be patient. You may have a self-identity journey in motherhood.

This is where words of encouragement for new moms can come in. And we’re going to share some of our favorites with you.

Rediscovering yourself after having a baby

We know it might feel impossible at the moment, but you will find yourself again Breastie. Not only that, but you’ll be yourself as a mom. You’ll discover who you are as a parent and fuse it with the awesome person you were before having a baby.

It’s crucial that you not just meet the needs of your baby, but your needs too. It takes time to get used to your new identity as a parent, and feeling valued and worthwhile in your new role can help you feel better about it. 

Here are some ways to help rediscover yourself have having a baby:

Now, let’s have a look at ways your breasts can change after breastfeeding. What breasts look like before and after breastfeeding depends on the person, since every woman’s body is different, but there are some changes likely in store.

1. Take a break

We all need a break every now and then. We know it can be difficult to do this when you have a new baby to take care of, but this is where your support network comes in. A break doesn’t have to mean going on a long weekend break. Think of little things like going for a walk, meeting with a friend for coffee, taking an exercise class, or just disappearing upstairs for an hour to have a nap. 

2. Self-care

Never underestimate the importance of self-care. It can be so easy to forget about caring for yourself after having a baby, but you can’t take care of them unless you take care of you. Self-care can be anything from getting your hair done, having a nice long bath, or anything that improves your mental and physical well-being. 

3. Reconnect with your partner

It's totally normal for things to change in your relationship after having a baby. You might not feel like yourself for a while because of a change in your sex drive, tiredness, or body changes. That’s OK mama! You’ll both be so busy taking care of your new baby that your relationship is bound to feel a little different, at least for a little while. Talk to your partner and try to make the time to bond with them. Even something as simple as watching a movie together or enjoying a nice dinner can help you reconnect. Don’t push yourself to have sex if you don’t feel like it but make sure you keep the lines of communication open so they understand how you are feeling. 

4. Don't compare yourself to other parents

We are all so guilty of this. It can be so easy to compare yourself to Jenny from your baby group who looks so well put together, or Lauren so loves to tell everyone how her baby is already sleeping through the night. Everyone is different and everyone has their own struggles and challenges. Most parents probably feel the way you do, but might show things differently on the outside. Comparing yourself to others is only going to make you feel worse, so put down your phone and stop scrolling through their “perfect” Instrgram feeds. Remember that people only post and talk about the good things. You’re doing amazing mama, and you don’t need to compare yourself to anyone. Even your past self.

5. Set yourself a goal

This doesn’t have to be a big goal, but think if there is something you would love to do. Is there a book you’ve been longing to read? A new skill you’d love to learn? A museum you’ve always wanted to visit? Set yourself small goals every now and then and make a commitment to yourself to do them.

Caring for Your Breasts During and after Breastfeeding

While you can’t really reverse the effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding, there are a few simple steps you can take to take care of your gorgeous breasts.

  • Wear a supportive bra and get properly fitted. Special nursing bras can support your delicate and sensitive breast tissue, helping to prevent signs of sagging.
  • Treat your skin with the love it deserves. Dryness is a common complaint after giving birth, so stock up on appropriate skin care lotion and keep your pretty Titties nourished.
  • Nipple care is also important. They can go through a lot, including blistering, bleeding, and cracking. There are lots of over the counter balms and creams you can use to give your nipples the care they need.
  • See a doctor if you have any lumps or pain. Breastfeeding can be uncomfortable - especially if your baby’s latch isn’t perfect or you don’t nurse in the right position for you - but it shouldn’t be painful. If you experience any lumps or pain in your breasts, it’s important to speak to your doctor or lactation consultant. Some women get mastitis, which is an infection that can happen as a result of a plugged milk duct or broken skin on the nipples.
  • Keep checking your Titties. Continue with breast self-exams every month and speak to your doctor if you notice any changes.
