FTM here and I am absolutely grateful for my mom... Without her help, I don't know what I would have done. My husband and I have been living with my parents since we got discharged from the hospital. My mom has literally helped out with everything (I had a C section too) from bathing her, changing her, etc so I can rest. Just last night (because I'm exhausted from the night time feedings) she fed our baby at midnight then again at 3 am. On top of helping us, she's making me special soups, etc to help me heal. She had no help whatsoever when she had me and I am amazed at how she did it all.
After my home confinement is up (I've made a previous post about this; it's a cutural PP ritual, new moms aren't allowed to go out for the first 30 days; I have less then 2 weeks left) I'm taking her out to get a massage while my husband watches our daughter!
