Did you "lose yourself?"

I have a 4mo old. The first 8 weeks of her life I was sure I’d never be “me” again. She had reflux, colic and a milk protein allergy so she was outrageously fussy most of the day and then at about 4 weeks she stopped napping completely. I had no time to myself and after being on bed rest for my entire third trimester I was just so desperate to get out and have my old life back. Looking back I see now that we didn’t bond immediately and it definitely took me some time to adjust to my new life. And yes, my days revolve around when she eats and when she’s fussy and early bedtime. On the flip side, I’ve noticed my interests and priorities have shifted entirely. My parents babysit often and that is a huge help but to be honest I have a hard time being away from her now. I love being a mother and have gained new appreciations and felt new feelings and made new friendships since she was born, if anything I have enjoyed additions to my life rather than losses. I also do a lot of shopping on Amazon now 😜
