Body Image, Breastfeeding, & Self-Care ~ The Best Advice For New Moms from the Super Mamás

Katrina Scott talks to the Super Mamas about advice for new moms, breastfeeding, and what to expect during pregnancy and as a mother.

Hey gorgeous mama! I want to say thank YOU for all your advice and support. Whether it’s nursery recommendations, tips about latching, or just swapping mommy stories, I know I can always turn to this community 💗

As a new mom, I’m soaking in everything. That’s why I was so excited to have Bricia and Paulina from Supermamas.com and the Super Mamás podcast here at the HQ. We’re talking all things motherhood — the surprises, the joys, and the challenges. There are so many things I didn’t expect before I had Bella…like breastfeeding every two hours through the night! The more we as moms talk about our experiences in a raw and real way, the more we can support each other and share this remarkable journey together.

Watch the video below to hear us talk about it alllll. And tell me in the comments…what surprised you most as a mom? Any more advice for me? Tell me everything!

Love you tons,

Kat

  1. Yes to the self-compassion and being easy on ourselves!

    I love this quote I recently found: “There is no way to be a perfect mother… but a million ways to be a good one” – Jill Churchill

  2. KAT!! I sincerely hope you’re still reading comments on this post. THANK YOU for posting this, and for being so candid and open about your own experience of becoming a mother. I have a sweet baby girl, Eva Olivia, who just turned 5 weeks old yesterday. I literally teared up when you said, “You are superwoman.” You’re so right that nothing can truly prepare you for the journey of parenthood. The love I have for my baby is indescribable and all-encompassing. Man, there have been some TOUGH moments too. Breastfeeding totally is a full-time job and emotionally it can be difficult feeling like your body still isn’t *your own*. Does that make sense?? I read every baby book under the sun while I was pregnant, but I didn’t fully understand matrescence, or how becoming a mother would change me so much. It has hands down changed me for the better, but the identity shift and transformation was hard at first. I could go on and on, but I’ll end with….YOU, Kat, are an amazing mom and thank you, Paulina and Bricia for sharing your experiences and wisdom with the TIU community!

    1. Wow…crying over here 😂 Thank you so much babe! Sending so much love to you and baby Eva. You are the best mom to your little girl and I’m so grateful to be on this new journey with you 💕xx
