Let's make one thing clear: all moms are tough AF. Being a mom inherently means you get access to the Tough AF Club, because there are some really difficult decisions you won't be able to avoid while earning your membership card. Decisions like how to use your kid's nap time, how to feed your infant, and even whether or not you're going to sleep train. All of these are decisions you'll make as a mom that prove you're tough AF.
I remember agonizing over how to get my daughter on some sort of a schedule, especially when it came to sleeping and eating. I spent way too many hours deep in the belly of the internet, trying to find just the right schedule for her that I thought we could all live with. Thinking back on it, I don't know why it seemed like such a difficult decision, but perhaps that's the mystery of motherhood: every decision seems absolutely enormous when it has to do with the wellbeing and perceived success of your child.
Of course, some of those decisions have more lasting effects. For example, if I had a son, I can't imagine how long I would have tried to decide whether or not to circumcise my baby. However, no matter what kind of baby you have or even what kind of personality you have as a mother, there will inevitably be hard decisions, big and small, that prove you're tough AF. Here's a shortlist of where to start, just in case you're having some doubts about how absolutely badass you are.
