I then #lortemor on @dr1tv the other day, a programme about how easy it is, to feel like a bad mother, and I have not been able to get my thoughts and feelings at a distance ago. I'm afraid that I haven't been honest enough. I have kept all the ugly hidden, and I have not done enough to break the illusion. But the last thing I want, is to contribute to a picture postcard which is at best just misleading, but in the worst case get new mothers to feel inept. The truth is that it took me a very long time to feel comfortable in the role. It took me a long time to accept kontroltabet, and it took me a long time to really love Marlon. I had so much pain breastfeeding at the beginning, I regretted we had ever had a baby. And it came I said to Marlon, since he was quite tiny. It I can never forget, that I said to him. I also heckled him because he would not sleep, and I've been crying mascara-tears down on his pillow and left marks that I still can't hold out to look at today, because it reminds me of how much I lost their temper. I've been afraid to share the hard truth, because I do not believe others are seeing it to get a child in the same way. I fear what people will think about me, instead of to remind myself, that I could have helped others in the same boat with to feel less lonely in it. For with to the truth, hear also, that you are not a ‘lortemor’ because you cry, yell, and lose your head once in a while. You are a human being, just like me, and I know that I - in spite of everything - has been, and is, the world's best #mother.

the Extra Leaf telling Christina Sander, to the documentary on DR aroused a feeling in her that she could not ignore.

- In the program, I could recognize many of the thoughts that one of the girls in the program describes. She was cross-border honest, and I was inspired by. When you sit with taboo thoughts, it is difficult to assess whether this is something others would have the benefit of hearing, or just because, you are a bad mother. For so little, that talked about those things. In the program says this woman, that she has felt a hatred for his son, and I am thinking that there are others who can recognize out there - including myself, and it would have helped me to know that there were others that felt the same way, she says honestly.

When he came.... It was not because I did not love him. But I was so worn out and tired, and I was unprepared for the responsibility that came with having a child. It is here to be able to eat when I wanted, watch Netflix and sleep in the couch when I would. Suddenly I was completely subject to his needs, and it was too much for me, " she says, and continues:

- The first six weeks, I had major problems with breastfeeding that I was about to give up. Someone is doing it smoothly, but we had many problems. Not enough milk, mastitis, sutteteknik. Everything was wrong. You should have food in the small child, and it was so hard. I dreaded every time he woke up, because he had to eat. Marlon was connected with so many negative emotions - pain, udkørthed, anxiety. I didn't know what I should do.

I pretended that everything was okay. I was not asking for help from family, health visitor or other. But it was not okay. A day where I had to go down and retrieve the take-away, I cried completely uninhibited all the way out on the street. I was completely paralysed. Having a child was a completely different unpredictability than I had thought.

According to Christina Sander began her thoughts to turn, as she got easier to breastfeed.

- Each time I had to breastfeed him, curved I the toes and cried him down in the head. It was terrible. But after six-eight weeks I started to look brighter on it, because it went forward. The more successes I had, the better it was, " she says, and continues:

- Now I'm in a completely different place. Now I feel, like a fucking boss mother. Now I have no doubt that I am the best mother for him. I have got big self-assurance in the role. I am not gripped by the sense of powerlessness. I don't have a black cloud over me that makes me cry all the time more.
