Last week we touched on being flexible. For Tiphanie, this is usually a daily mantra and practice, especially during your postpartum journey. Learning to be flexible with yourself, your time, your support, and your expectations. Life with a newborn requires you to be flexible. While it is important to try and establish a sleeping routine and schedule, there are days that it does not go as planned.
"With my first mini, I had a very rigid schedule and the way "things were done". I was not flexible and this (and a few other factors) caused me to have a severe case of postpartum anxiety, OCD, and depression. With this newest mini, I have been more understanding and (have tried to be) more relaxed in my approach to things." - Tiphanie
