I think most moms will agree that nothing can quite prepare you for the experience of having a newborn. From the constant feeding, burping, changing, and infinite repeats, it is somehow more challenging yet rewarding than anything you could have hoped for. Does your baby make labor and everything else that follows worth it? Absolutely. Yes, no one can be fully prepared for motherhood and every experience is as unique as it is wonderful. Nevertheless, we believe that all to-be moms need to have some sort of heads-up before stepping into this life-changing new reality. Here are some 15 odd things about having a newborn baby that they don’t tell you about:
1. You become quite the efficient multitasker who realizes that one hand was enough all along to carry out day-to-day menial functions like working and eating.
2. Your house constantly smells of your baby. You realize this when you step out for a bit and come back to that wonderful smell you love the most.
3. There is a high chance that your baby does not like your n1pples or prefers to drink milk from only one. And there is nothing much that you can do about this.
