Life After Baby

Having a baby will change your life forever. It’s scary right? The day I went to the hospital for my scheduled c-section, I knew nothing will remain same, but in the end it is beautiful, gratifying and the most wonderful thing you will ever do.

Today I will blog about how Mia’s arrival has changed both of us. I am going to write in pointers because the words are going to fall short.

So here it goes

    • You start taking care of yourself, because you have created a life and you can’t afford to fall sick having a tiny creature who has just arrived.You start loving yourself more so you can take better care of your little one obviously.
    • You become a morning person, well you don’t have a choice actually. Sleep is luxury now till the toddler phase hopefully. Yes, hopefully because we are in toddler phase now and sleep still is a luxury!
    • You’d rather buy baby dresses and shoes than those outfits that you have been fawning over. Even the dresses you buy will be breastfeeding friendly or just a simple T-shirt to lift and feed.
    • You will delete your memorable pictures from your phone to create space for thousands of similar pictures of your baby.
    • Taking a shower becomes a luxury. Deep cleansing and bathing is a monthly affair now.
    • Your diet included baby friendly food, at least till the time you breastfeed.
    • Grocery shopping alone will feel like a vacation! Yes I feel the same even if my husband isn’t there.
    • You realise the love and sacrifice of your parents. This is a major change that I have noticed in my husband too.
    • It will amaze you that you will never love anything or anyone as much as you love that little bundle in your arms.
    • Your anxiety and panic attacks will increase and that’s totally okay if it’s for the baby.
    • You will be more emotional than ever! Tear glands perform their best after a baby comes home. Happy, sad, scared, whatsoever feeling comes, tears are ready to roll down.

And last but not least

  • You will never leave the house without a huge bag of baby needs though they will come back as it is !

The list may go on for many. I just realised the pointers are like paragraphs, that’s what a baby does to you !
