Experiences of a First-Time Mom (In GIFs)


How it feels to meet your baby for the first time:


When you take your baby home, open the door and walk inside, then wonder what you’re suppose to do now:


When there is just SO.MUCH.CRYING:


When you encounter your baby’s first poopy diaper blowout:


When your partner wants to “get busy” for the first time after birth:


When everyone tells you that you should be happy during every single moment of life with a newborn but in reality you’re exhausted from night-time feedings and being a new mom is actually really f*cking hard:


When you suddenly realize everyone and their mom has an opinion about how to parent your new child:


When you find out that whole “sleep when the baby sleeps” thing doesn’t actually work and yet people tell you this ALL.THE.TIME:


When you finally get one hour of alone time:


When it’s the middle of the night and it’s your partner’s turn to get up with the baby but they don’t wake up:


When you realize that your love for your child is like nothing you have ever experienced:


When you discover that you’re actually starting to get the hang of this motherhood thing:
