Carrie Bickmore's very honest account of what life is like with a one-month old baby

The ProjectΒ star Carrie Bickmore has revealed what life has been like since the birth of her new baby, Adelaide.

Bickmore shared an Instagram post documenting what the previous month has entailed, which included a trip to the hospital with mastitis and experiencing broken sleep.

The caption reads:

"1 MONTH OLD TODAY!!
Sleep πŸ‘Ž
Boobtime πŸ‘
Googling β€˜what is reflux at 3am?’ πŸ‘
Late night pram walks πŸ‘
Cuddles πŸ‘
Arguments πŸ‘
Conflicting advice given πŸ‘
Struggle with existing 3 year old πŸ‘
Hours spent staring at Adelaide πŸ‘
Feeling overwhelmed πŸ‘
Feeling like it’s all going to be ok πŸ‘
Eating meals with 1 hand πŸ‘
Witching hour is witching 4 hours πŸ‘
Tears of happiness πŸ‘
Tears of exhaustion πŸ‘
Surviving on 4 hours broken sleep πŸ‘
A trip back to hospital with mastitis πŸ‘
Getting 5 mins to myself πŸ‘Ž
Bursting with love and gratitude πŸ‘
❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️❀️"

Many mums have rallied around her in the comments, with one commenter lamenting that she knows the feeling all too well.

β€˜Ohh I know the feeling and I only have one. Mum life is a much harder gig than anticipated.”

β€œSounds like heaven and hell wrapped up in one” said one commenter.

With this being Bickmore’s third child, looking after three year old Evie and 11-year-old Oliver hasn’t been an easy task, especially with newborn Adelaide.

However, it doesn’t appear that the siblings seem to mind, with Bickmore sharing the snap saying "No such thing as personal space for Adelaide!!".

The mother of three confessed when she leftΒ The ProjectΒ that she was β€œso excited and (slightly terrified!!)” to be having a third child, but it seems like theΒ family of fiveΒ are adjusting well to their new addition.

Do you remember what it was like in the first month of having your children? Was it as difficult as Carrie described? Let us know in the comments.
