i honestly dont think its hard NOW. my daughter is now 3 and shes the greatest,the best any mother could ask for.

but at the beginning is was very difficult to adjust,especially with me having post partum depression,then my husband leaving on deployment when our daughter was 6months old.

but,now my husband is a civilian,has an awesome job,im back in school,and our daughter is incredibly smart,funny,and and amazing :)

So,thankfully for me my life got better...easier. i love it!

my only problem now is a lack of close friends. :-/

yes being a young mom is hard. i had my first daughter when i was 18 and my youngest a year after that. however as long as you have supportive loved ones you will be just fine. just be strong and keep your head up ;)

being a mommy is very hard and overwhelming! aks for help when u need it! if ur at ur end and nobody is around put baby in the crib and walk away for 5 min! baby will be fine but u need to take 5 min! and once a month get a sitter and go out with hubby/bf! u will be amazed how much it helps just to have time for u and ur partner :) we moms tend to forget about ourselfs and its not good for u or baby! we need to be ALL there for our kids and if u dont take the time it just gets harder and hadrer! just remeber breath and take time for u!!!!!!!!!! YOU deserve it mamma :D

It is hard.. no matter how old you are. I was 16 when i had my 1st and 21 when i had my 2nd! it didnt get any easier! but looking at my babies girls everyday and getting those love you momma or mommy help me or chocolate covered kisses make it all worth it!

Hello, Yes it is hard being a young mum, I was 17 when I had my little girl, Its life changing to say the least. But you get through it, Jessica, she's 3 now, and yes there are days that i feel like i'd swap her if i could, but deep down I never could because I love her too much. They change your life, but more often than not for the better.

Being a Mom in general is hard! Every situation is different and you just have to make sure that you ask for help when you need it. Like if you feel like you have just had enough, ask someone to watch the baby for a bit, walk away and take a deep breath. It a 24/7 days a week job! Its very stressful and difficult. Not only do you have to take care of yourself but you now have a tiny baby to look after. But the biggest advice I can give you would be to try and make sure you make time for yourself, things get better as the baby grows month by month! We are all on this site to help every mom in anyway we can so any questions or anything dont hasitate to ask. I am happy I had this site when my baby was first born! Good luck with everything!! and enjoy that precious bundle of joy you have :)

Hi Tyiesha, i agree it is hard being a young mum, esp if lots of your friends dont have children themselves. Just rememeber there is loads of help out there if you need it, and dont be afraid to ask for help, im sure you'd be surprised at how many people would put their hands up to help you out. xx
