Know that It Gets Better
Feeling overwhelmed as a new mom is completely normal, and there will be many (many) times you feel as though you are in over your head. Just remember — it gets better.
Adapting to a new routine and the ever-changing needs of an infant, all while running on so little sleep, will make the first year particularly difficult. Even working moms that "make it look so easy" (everybody knows at least one!) are having the same struggles. However, as you adjust to your new lifestyle, and as your baby grows and becomes less demanding, you'll eventually be able to come up for air. Hang in there, Mom!
