You had a baby (or you’re about to). You grew a human being and carried it around inside of you for months, while enduring kicks, losing sleep, and being poked and prodded by doctors.
At first, it was awesome. People catered to your every whim, gave you seats on crowded trains, and got you ice cream at 3 a.m.They even threw you a party!
People constantly offered you advice–whether you asked for it or not. “Sleep when the baby sleeps.” “Don’t get the epidural.” “Definitely get the epidural.” “Swaddle.” “Don’t swaddle.” In the end, you trusted your gut, and somehow you got that little miracle into the world…and then people got quiet.
Even with all that advice, no one really prepared you for this. No one told you how to bathe a wriggling infant when you’re terrified of letting her slip. No one said, “here’s how to change your son’s diaper without needing a change of clothes yourself.” No one mentioned how to catch up on sleep when the house needs cleaning and you haven’t showered since Tuesday and if you move you’ll wake him up and just how HARD this would be. And we’re almost sure no one told you what it would be like when you tried on those skinny jeans again.
