10 Signs You've Just Had a Baby (Girl)

For better or worse, the evidence is everywhere I look: I have indeed given birth and there is a new little person in our home. Some of these things I can’t wait to say goodbye to (Maxi pads from hell) while others will be harder to let go of, simply because they’ll mean my baby is no longer brand new. And how I love a brand-new baby.

Here are 10 signs you’ve just had a baby, from my home to yours. Or maybe just to your computer screen:

  • Flowers 1 of 10
    This classic sign of congratulations sat on the dresser in my bedroom for a couple of weeks.
  • My Bedroom 2 of 10
    My Bedroom
    Baby has obviously taken over our bedroom. Especially my side of the bed.
  • Nightstand 3 of 10
    Once reserved for reading materials, my nightstand is now cluttered with stacks of itty bitty diapers, binkys, wipes, etc. No time for reading, and if there was, my eyes wouldn't stay open long enough.
  • Balloon 4 of 10
    I liked being greeted by this balloon each time I stepped into the kitchen.
  • Water 5 of 10
    I was so thirsty, and still am. A glass of water trails me everywhere I go.
  • Bathroom 6 of 10
    Oh, the dreaded toilet routine. I'm happy to be out of that phase.
  • Blankets 7 of 10
    There are swaddling blankets everywhere I turn, and a few from the hospital made their way home with me.
  • Arrangement 8 of 10
    For a day or two, I opened my fridge to be greeted by this little friend. I actually loved having the fresh fruit readily available ... with a touch of chocolate. Notice the breastmilk on the right, collected during a day or two of engorgement.
  • Total Baby 9 of 10
    Total Baby
    This app has totally taken over my phone ... and possibly my life.
  • Sanitizer 10 of 10
    I've got a few bottles of this around the house, and this one made its way into my car. Can't be careful enough!
