    13 Things All New Moms Must Face After Birth

    A shower? Ain't nobody got time for that.

    1. Excessively smelling your baby.

    Nothing is better than newborn baby smell.

    2. Constantly checking on your baby to make sure they're still breathing.


    There's no such thing as being too sure.

    3. Not showering for an extended number of days.


    (But still putting on deodorant!)

    4. Letting your baby sleep on you instead of doing something you need to do.


    It's totally worth it.

    5. Googling something your baby did to see if it is normal.

    Turns out it is totally normal...unless they are sick. Then you freak and rush them to the doctor.

    6. Watching your baby on the monitor a little longer than necessary.

    And trying to convince yourself it's not creepy.

    7. Posting your baby's weekly and/or monthly pictures on social media.

    You also let people know that your baby is coo-ing and smiling and loves baths!

    8. Being so exhausted you forget to put the wet clothes in the dryer.


    Then having to wash them again.

    9. Freaking out when your hair starts falling out.

    Make it stop, please!

    10. Overpacking the diaper bag anytime you go somewhere.


    Just in case.

    11. Wearing clothes that are clearly dirty.

    Why change when it will just get dirty again?

    12. Tasting (or thinking of tasting) your baby's milk.

    Doesn't matter if it's breast milk or formula, you are curious.

    13. Surviving on caffeine.

    You. Need. It.
