15 Texts Every Postpartum Mama Needs from Her Partner


texts every new mom needs from her partner

It's been a long day. Your baby was up at 4 a.m. (and 3:30 a.m. and 2 a.m. and 11 p.m.). If nap-fighting were an Olympic sport, your baby would be representing the US and going for the gold. You've handled two blowout diapers and been spit up on at least half a dozen times. You need coffee, a clean shirt, and a nap. Most importantly, you need support and encouragement from your parenting partner.

Sometimes a few words of affirmation are all it takes to make a day more manageable. We asked our friends and other Kindred Bravely moms what they’d like to hear on a particularly tough day. Here are the text messages they’d love to get:

I appreciate you, texts new moms want to get from their partners

Our kids are so lucky to have you as a mom, texts new moms want to get from their partners

As tough as it is to focus on yourself while attending to the needs of your little one, do your best to assess your needs and vocalize them. While we love when our partners send encouraging texts, run errands, or help around the house, it's important to realize that our partners aren't psychics! They won't automatically know what to do or say to make your day better. Don't be afraid to ask for the things you want or need, Mama. Even if it's something as simple as a quick, middle-of-the-day check-in.
