When I was a kid, I wonder how my mom does it all? How she can be able to manage everything? then when I got married after a month I got pregnant, everything is new and strange. First, I feel doubt for myself if I can be a mother, having some second thought what if I become a bad mother? What if I cannot manage to do breastfeed? What if I failed to do all things to my baby? At first, you don't know what to do but you will figure it I promise you that. Everything will be okay.
The first thing you need to know is that you are not perfect, no one is and it is okay to be not a perfect mother, as long as you do your part, you try your best in all things about moms stuff, you will be perfect to your child's eyes. Your love, care, and sacrifices are enough to make a better home. Your role as a mother is to make sure your child is loved.
