Let’s face it: Once a new baby arrives, not even the most well-known or well-to-do moms can escape the crushing fatigue that comes with caring for this adorable, needy creation.
That’s certainly the case for Kristin Cavallari. She’s been spotted all around town with and without little Camden in the two months since his birth, and praised (or sighed over) for the speed with which she dropped the pregnancy weight.
But it’s still a challenge for her to adjust to life as a mom. “I’m really, really tired,” she confesses in the new issue of Life & Style.
To complicate matters, she’s been tackling much of the child care on her own while fiance Jay Cutler, QB of the Chicago Bears, is busy with his NFL schedule. “Before we had the baby, I liked that we had alone time,” Kristin says. “But now with the baby, I feel like Jay is gone all the time.”
It must be hard for Jay, as well, to miss these precious newborn days. Kristin is at an advantage in that respect. “I was able to bond with Camden because I was breastfeeding,” she says. “It’d been harder for Jay because Camden is so small and Jay doesn’t really have as much time to get close to him.”
Kristin’s own hectic work and travel schedule has also proven difficult. But, like such famous moms as Adele and Sarah Jessica Parker, she prefers to go without hired help when she can. Instead, she relies on someone who has a bigger role to play in Camden’s life.
“It’s really nice having my mom. She helps a lot!” says the young actress.
With the fatigue, demanding work schedules and lack of couple time, is it possible that Kristin is rethinking the plans she announced a few weeks back to try having another baby right away?
Or perhaps, once football season is over and Camden is in the sweet days of mid-infancy, the idea of doing it over again will be appealing once more.
