Catelynn Lowell has admitted that although she’s thrilled to be a mother again, it’s still hard!
Shortly after this week’s episode of Teen Mom OG, Catelynn told MTV in a Teen Mom OG: Featured Moment the hardest part about parenting a newborn baby.
As she mentioned on Teen Mom OG, despite this being her second daughter with fiance Tyler Baltierra, this is the first time they’ve gotten to bring a baby home and raise her.
Even though they planned for another baby, because they were desperate to be a family, Catelynn admits it’s still tough! “The hardest thing to get used to with having a newborn… is the lack of sleep.”
She was warned by friends and family, she admits, but she didn’t take it that seriously. “People tell you you’re not going to be able to sleep, and you don’t really believe ’em, but you really don’t get any sleep at all.”
The young family admitted on Teen Mom that six years ago they were not stable or mature enough to successfully raise their firstborn, Carly, who is better off with her adoptive parents.
On another Featured Moment, Catelynn says she and Tyler miss their freedom! They’ve been active bio parents to Carly, but until now their personal lives have remained intact.
“Tyler and I were so used to being able to get up and go to a restaurant or get up to go and go hang out with friends,” says the 23-year-old. “And now it’s like, you gotta pack the whole diaper bag, make sure you have extra clothes, bottles, an extra binkie in case she loses her other one.”
