“Surviving on four hours’ broken sleep,” she captioned a photo of her with Adelaide and partner Chris Walker on Jan. 8, adding she’d also been forced to take late-night pram walks and eat her meals with one hand.
Bickmore, who says she’s broken down with tears of happiness and tears of exhaustion over the past few weeks, also went on to reveal her daughter could be suffering from reflux – a condition common in newborn babies which can be distressing for parents to manage – and that she’s been given “conflicting advice” as to how to handle the situation.
Despite the difficulties, Bickmore says she wouldn’t have it any other way.
“The nights are long ... but the years are short. Treasuring every moment,” she added, while crediting “domestic god” and long-time partner Chris Walker for supporting her through this stressful and emotional time.
“While I rest, Chris looks after Adelaide, wrangles a cray cray three-year-old, folds the clothes and entertains a bored 11-year-old,” she wrote on Instagram on Dec. 21.
“It would be so hard without support ... Thanks to everyone helping us get through these days.”
Last year, Bickmore opened up to WHO about her pregnancy while showing off her blossoming bump for our WHO sexiest issue.
