The “100 Days of Darkness” refers to the first 100 days of a child’s life, during which the parents have to make important decisions regarding their work-life balance, often without any sleep. In addition, the mother’s first 100 days after birth are full of new hormonal shifts and bodily functions (like lactation) coming to the forefront, which makes the whole experience new and sometimes tiring. The author mentions that her experience with getting through this difficult time was mostly about keeping a positive attitude, and trying her hardest to stay alert and communicative with her partner while raising their newborn. While this may sound easy, child rearing is often regarded as the most trying experience of a couple’s life, since there is such a high demand from the child at all hours of the day.
