The hardest adjustment for me has been the lack of sleep. A lot of people say, “Oh, you did The Block and you didn’t sleep then” but it’s so different. Being a mum is so much harder.
Breastfeeding was also a bit difficult at first. I had a really good supply, but I just didn’t realise how full-on it would be at the beginning. I’d had abdominal surgery and this little person to take care of and feed. I just felt like I was hit by a bus and I was into being a mum straightaway. I was a bit shell-shocked at the start.
