Motherhood is beautiful. It is also overwhelming. You pop out a baby and they send you home to keep it alive. I, of course, did hours of research and reading on all things parenting. I looked at everything I could on the internet on what was best. To be honest, though, a lot of what was currently trendy in parenting went against my natural instincts. I wanted to be an attentive mother, but I didn’t want to be a helicopter mom. I wanted to give my all to my child, but I didn’t want to lose myself. And I wanted to find a sense of order to our days while still prioritizing my child’s needs. Was it possible to do it all? Fortunately, yes. I found a book that supported what my gut was telling me. Here is how Babywise confirmed my parenting instincts.
