Remember when you first got married and everyone told you how much your life was about to change? Shoot, having a spouse is a cakewalk compared to having a baby! At least with your partner, they are an adult who is responsible for themselves (umm, relatively speaking)! A child? Here’s this tiny human being, who actually resembles you, who is looking to you to meet all of their needs. Talk about an overwhelming reality check!
The first year or so after you bring your baby into the world is going to be one of the most amazing and challenging times of your entire life. You’re going to need your friends, more than you ever have.
Don’t look at it as being “needy”. See them as being lifesavers. (Because they will be!)
