If you need to, set your baby in a safe place and take a step back even if they cry. You can let them cry alone for a few minutes if a moment alone is what you need to ground yourself and keep you and your baby safe. That doesn’t make you a bad mom and some mamas need to hear that. Sometimes you really need to take yourself first for a moment in order to step back into the situation with a calmer more compassionate mind. That. IS. Okay.
Anything else that’s stressing you, dishes, laundry, whatever, let it go. Chores can wait. Your baby won’t need you like this forever, and it will get easier.
Take a step back and inside of yourself and think of three (or hell, go for thirty!) things you are grateful for.
Turn the internet and tumblr off, and tune into your baby. Really try to connect. Phones and internet are distractions and can cause frustrations if your focus is on them instead of fully on your babe. Listen to your babe. There are messages they’re trying to send and they don’t know how other than crying and fussing and screaming.
Breathe, mama. I believe in you. Take deep breaths, take a moment to stretch out your sore muscles, and remember: this too shall pass.
We’ve all been where you are. You will get through this, I promise. I love you.

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.
