Having a baby is hard!

Look no further than Vanessa Lachey as a prime example!

Even though she's got the support of hubby Nick Lachey, it was still hard for Vanessa to get used to being a mother to her baby Camden, and it was hard not to be overtaken by the baby blues!

Here's how she describes it:

“I was sick of feeling like a milk machine. I loved my bonding time with Camden … But also there were times when he was crying of hunger … Then when Camden was done eating, I wasn’t able to lay and cuddle with him. I had to give him back to all the well-wishers who wanted to hold him and love him, and I sat and waited for the next feeding, where I would do it all again … I was constantly thinking about how I would have to give him up at the end of the feeding. I started crying. I was feeding Camden and crying my eyes out. I felt like I had officially come undone.”

But don't worry folks because here's where the happy ending comes in, and also the life lesson!

Vanessa said:

“I got in my car, took a drive around the block, put my sunroof down and blared the radio. I went to Starbucks, came home, took a shower, put myself together, and came upstairs and gave my husband a kiss and said I was sorry. I was sorry for the weeks of losing myself. I was sorry for the weeks to come when I won’t be myself, and I am sorry I can’t do it ALL like I thought I could. It’s ok if we can’t do it ALL because … we have already done so much!”

Hear, hear!

We've ALWAYS known that you would get a hang of this mothering thing, yet we're so thankful that you gathered to courage to talk about the troubles and hardships of raising a baby.

We don't hear that enough!!!

Bravo, Vanessa!

    I M SO GLAD VANESSA OVERCAME HER POST-PARTUM ISSUES & SHARED WHAT HAPPENED IN ORDER 2HELP OTHER NEW MOMS. AS A PSYCHOLOGIST & MOM, THO, I URGE NEW MOMS 2NOT SELF DIAGNOSE BASED ON THIS, OR THINK SYMPTOMS R "BABY BLUES" THAT WILL PASS& NOT SEEK APPROPRIATE CARE. IF A NEW MOM EXPERIENCES ANY OF THE ABOVE SHE OWES IT 2HERSELF & HER CHILD 2SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP 2DETERMINE DIAGNOSIS & DECIDE IF TREATMENT IS NECESSARY. POST-PARTUM DEPRESSION IS NOT A WEAKNESS OR CHARACTER FLAW. IT'S CAUSED BY HORMONES PRODUCED BY PREGNANCY. I'VE SEEN 2MANY TRAGEDIES WHERE A MOM HARMED HERSELF HER CHILD OR BOTH, BECAUSE SHE DIDNT GET THE TREATMENT SHE DESPERATELY NEEDED. MOMS W SIMILAR PROBS AS THOSE LISTED NEED ONLY 2GO2 A FAMILY DR 2BEGIN THE HELP THEY NEED. I HOPE ALL WHO READ THIS & RECOGNIZE THEMSELVES SEEK OUT A PROFESSIONAL 2EVALUATE & ASSIST THRU THE CHALLENGES OF NEW MOTHERHOOD IF THOSE CHALLENGES BECOME OVERWHELMING. ALL MOMS DESERVE 2ENJOY THIS SPECIAL TIME W/THEIR NEWBORNS. PLEASE KNO THERE IS SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE HELP THAT CAN TURN THINGS AROUND. I WISH VANESSA & ALL OF U HAPPY MOTHERING!
