Audrey Roloff Feels Like She’s “Failing” Newborn

New mom Audrey Roloff is keeping it real.

The reality star, 26, and her husband, Little People, Big World star Jeremy Roloff, 27, welcomed their first child — daughter Ember Jean — on Sept. 10. And now, Audrey is getting candid about first-time motherhood.

“Our little Ember is two weeks old today! She’s likes cuddling on our chests, swaying, and when her daddy sings to her,” she Instagrammed the image of their newborn.

Audrey added: “While I am overflowing with love for my daughter and husband, I won’t sugar coat it… these past two weeks have been HARD. 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. I got all the things… the common “TMI” postpartum hurts, along with severe engorgement, too much milk, not enough milk, blisters, bruises, clogged ducts, and mastitis. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but the pain that I’ve experienced while breast feeding has been comparable to unmedicated labor contractions. Inevitably, all of this has left me feeling like I am failing my baby, frustrated, discouraged, and heart ached. But even though the tearful sleepless nights persist, so will I. I will continue to pour myself out in sacrificial love for this baby girl who makes every hurt worth enduring. And not by my strength or striving, but in Christ alone. I’ve been humming the these lyrics while I nurse and pump through the nights, “Lord, I come, I confess, Bowing here I find my rest, Without You I fall apart, You’re the One that guides my heart, Lord I need you oh I need you, Every hour I need you, My one defense, my righteousness, Oh God, how I need you…” Motherhood is already refining me so much and I am blessed. #journeyofjerandauj#emberroloff pc: @juliagreenphotography.”

Days after Ember’s birth, the new parents introduced their newborn on social media.

In February, Audrey and Jeremy – who were wed in Sept. 2014 – announced their first pregnancy.

This is the second grandchild for Jeremy’s parents, Matt and Amy Roloff, who are also featured on the TLC show. The former couple run Roloff Farm in Oregon with their four children.

It’s a Little People, Big World baby boom! Jeremy’s brother Zach and his wife Tori welcomed their son Jackson in May.
