Simone: Exhausting

Simone, mum to Helena
Having a child can be exhausting. Helena was very small when she was born, weighing just under 4 pounds. She's 4 months old now and I don't have any nights to myself. It was really tough going at first but it's getting better now. She was very hungry in the beginning.
I'm very tired and feel like I need to sleep all the time but it's all worth it. It has its rewards!

"Being a mum is a full-time job. And like any job, it requires effort and investment, especially in the beginning when the baby doesn't sleep through the night. But then adolescence is no less tiring".
