Hilaria Baldwin Gets Honest About Having 3 Kids In Three Years

Just over a week ago, Hilaria Baldwin had her third baby. You might say that three kids are tough, but what about 3 in 3 years?

Guess who fell asleep last night, breastfeeding, without washing her face????!!! This tired mommy?. Making the adjustment of having a 3rd child has been wonderful, but very hard at the same time. I’m doing everything in my power to give him all he needs and still make my two older babies feel special and not ignored. Honestly, it’s tough. I literally run between them all day long. I’m brand new to this 3 dynamic, but I believe that if I really invest now and create a happy environment for them, they will become a little inseparable unit. This is my hope. Carmen and Rafael had a hard time when I was in the hospital, away from them for 2 days. Even though they visited me, I am never away from them…not even for a night. Anytime I leave the room now they start crying and Carmen begs me not to “leave” her or “forget” her. So this mommy is working triple duty to shower all of them with extra love and support…but I sure am sleepy as a result!! This is a long way of giving you my excuse for not washing my face and not posting yesterday. This post is for yesterday and I’ll do another one later today ???? #366daysoflivingclearly #hilarialcm

Like a completely normal and tired mama, Hilaria fell asleep without washing her face. Sharing it on Instagram, she tells us about life with the new dynamics of having three children in three years.

Juggling Act

Each child is at a different phase in their development and each child has different needs. So, juggling all three can be difficult. Especially when a newborn needs the most attention compared to toddlers. We only have two hands, so it can be quite overwhelming.

The wife of actor Alec Baldwin is an extremely flexible yoga instructor and still looks insanely awesome. Probably due to her healthy eating habits and keeping active.

It might seem strange to you that I wrote about how tired I am and now I’m posting a pic after my first run back post baby…but actually getting up and staying active gives you a lot of energy. Sluggishness begets sluggishness (unless you really just need to rest!). I am not telling women to begin working out as quickly as I am after having a baby. That is between you and your doctor…as it is between me and mine. This post is for those of you who want to begin a workout (man, woman, kids, no kids…) and it seems daunting. I gave myself the goal of 5-10 min to jog. I surprised myself and did 23 minutes. I feel great and refreshed. I went out when Rafa and Leo were napping and Carmen was at her preschool she goes to for a few hours, a few times per week. One of the things I love about running/jogging/walking is that you can just put your shoes on and go. It’s so simple and time efficient. So if you are looking to begin a workout, give yourself small milestones and goals, as to not get overwhelmed or overdo it ? #366daysoflivingclearly #hilarialcm

Keeping Active

Baldwin has stayed active throughout her pregnancy and admits that even though she is tired, exercise gives her more energy. Pair that with a smoothie and you’ll be ready to conquer the world.
