She's growing so fast! Even though TLC's hit reality TV series Little People, Big World is off the air right now, fans love to keep up with the growing Roloff family via social media — and no one shares more than Jeremy Roloff's wife Audrey Roloff! The new mom took to Instagram to give fans an update on their two-month-old baby girl Ember Jean's growth and she couldn't help but feel torn about it! Watch the video below to read Audrey's sweet message to her daughter!
We're not crying, you are! The 26-year-old is extremely open about her life on social media, so it was concerning for fans when she took a brief social media hiatus after she gave birth to Ember back in September. But she eventually returned to Instagram two weeks after giving birth and she got extremely candid about motherhood — and how it did or didn't meet her expectations.
"While I am overflowing with love for my daughter and husband, I won't sugar coat it... these past two weeks have been HARD," she wrote. "The first 24 hours with Ember were bliss, but after that, it was as if I went back into labor again...I was well prepared for the pain and suffering that comes with childbirth, but I was not prepared for the pain and suffering that comes afterwards [sic]."
Audrey struggled with the normal postpartum aches and pains, but she also struggled with breastfeeding her daughter and she suffered from severe engorgement, too much or too little milk supply, blisters, bruises, clogged ducts, and mastitis — which is a painful infection of the breast tissue that is common among breastfeeding mothers. But thankfully, Audrey was able to endure and overcome and earlier this month, she revealed that she had been able to successfully and exclusively breastfeed Ember for five weeks straight.
