Two days after giving birth, a loving nurse checked us out of the hospital and helped us into our car. She loaded my overnight bag into the trunk and made sure the baby seat and base was properly secured. She then shut my passenger-side door, and my husband drove away, headed home.
Just like that, we were parents. My new baby’s sole providers. And let’s be honest, we were completely and utterly nervous. No more nurses to check baby’s vitals, no more doctors stopping by just to see how we were doing. We were in charge now, and all the responsibilities rested on our tired shoulders.
And just as a baby goes through transitions and milestones, new moms do, too. Tiny little things that in hindsight might feel silly and foolish to worry about are really big deals when you’re living through them in the moment.
Here are 5 surprising milestones every new mom has!
How about you? What “mom milestone” surprised you when you first became a new mother?
