It’s been two months since Lousie Cooney and partner Mark Sweeney welcomed the birth of their beautiful first child, Jude.

And safe to say, that life hasn’t and never will be the same again!

Taking to Instagram, Louise decided to fill her followers in on how she’s finding motherhood so far.

“So I’m exhausted and he’s probably exhausted,” she continued.

Louise then explained how this was their first full week at home with Mark having gone back to work.

“It’s hard. It’s full-on, like how do people do it with more than one kid and how do people do it on their own? It’s not easy trying to get anything else done around the house.

“And then work and stuff, it’s just so hard!”

Continuing on, Louise admitted to how overwhelming normal, everyday errands feel when you have a baby such as going to the post office and dry cleaners.

“All those things feel so overwhelming when you’re doing them but I’m hoping I’ll get into the swing of it and it just gets really easy.

“Because now when he starts crying, outside of our four walls I start to panic, but he’s good and he doesn’t cry that much, I’m lucky.”

Before the birth of Jude, Louise opened up about being good at multi-tasking but now she admits that all the focus has turned to him instead.

“It’s always changing there’s a different strategy nearly every day and we’re just kind of riding the newborn wave at the moment.”
