Patridge talked to PEOPLE exclusively about these special — not to mention, difficult — moments as a new mum.
“Breastfeeding was the most painful thing,” she said of nursing her 13-week-old little girl. “For me, it was more painful than the c-section!”
The lifestyle blogger said it took a while to look as serene as she did in the Instagram photo.
“The first two to three weeks were excruciating,” she said. “But I got through it!”
And she had a great helper by her side. “I slept on the couch for a week,” she said. “My grandma came and helped for a week. It was crazy!”
Despite the sleepless nights, Patridge said nothing beats her new role.
“Once I had Kirra, nothing else mattered,” Patridge said of her daughter, who is now sleeping six to seven hours a night. “I didn’t care about the dishes piling up or anything. I just let it go.”
