My main issues right now are whether to vaccinate or not and sleeping. So I look forward to reading thoughts from other mums.
I am an American expat living in Phuket, Thailand married to a Swede with a lovely 14 week old girl named Harper. It's difficult to get the support I'm looking for in Thailand because it's a different world here. Mothers ride around on motorbikes with their newborns on their laps and the 3 siblings behind her. The idea of not vaccinating is completely ridiculous to them. And the thought of finding BPA free bottles is just silly. So needless to say it is a struggle to care for my baby the way I would like to.
I will be going home to California for the month of May so I am hoping to get some great tips on products that I should bring back to Phuket with me.
I am a 1st time mum and as my thai doctor kept telling me a "very old lady pregnant"! Harper was born 3 days after my 43rd bday. I feel like I really should have done this earlier. It's been over 3 months and my body aches so badly. I have no energy and I feel like I aged 10 years in the past year. But I am thrilled to have this little smunchkin in our life!!!
Wow whjert!! Welcome!! So glad you found us!!
Have you tried taking arnica for soreness? Sounds like you might also need some adrenal support to help with the fatigue.
