My son is now 10 months old and I seem to have the motherhood thing more under control, but I remember going thru the first 4 months going what the hell?
Here are few things maybe you can relate to looking back on your journey.
You Know You’re a New Mom When….
-The highlight of your Friday night is watching your baby sleep on the video monitor while eating take out.
-You don’t care that the neighbors can see your breasts if you leave the curtains open while breastfeeding.
-The My Breast Friend or other nursing pillow is your new permanent fashion accessory around your waist.
-The most complicated part of your day is no longer work deadlines or spreadsheets, but figuring out when your baby ate last and when he needs to nap.
-You panic if you leave the pacifier at home.
-You really proud of the first time you were able to run and errand get baby in and out of a car seat and get back home all by yourself.
-You’re elated to have 2 hands back once you discover the sling or Baby Bjorn.
-You get really good at one handed typing with your baby on your lap.
-Once your baby starts to sleep through the night you can’t help but check on your baby and hover over the crib to make sure they are still breathing.
-You no longer blowdry your hair.
-You say do you have a poopy diaper more than 5x’s a day.
