Things I forgot about having a newborn baby

  • Drinking a hot cup of tea is a rare luxury.
  • Going out without a bump or a baby is very ordinary, no one smiles at you.
  • Breastfeeding in winter is not always pleasant.
  • Even when they are asleep they are very noisy.
  • They need to have their nappies changed, a lot.
  • They make you addicted to biscuits.
  • Their skin is softer than anything else on this earth and you want to bury your head against them and never let go.
  • They do not have any patience.
  • If they don’t wake up in the night, you will be up anyway wondering what’s wrong.
  • The way they bury their head into your chest as if to suffocate themselves against you whilst breathing warm soft milky breaths.
  • That they have no qualms about dirtying new outfits 5 minutes after you wrestled them into it.
  • The way their hands open and close to grasp at nothing and everything but never quite making it.
  • They like to suck.
  • They can look like they aren’t breathing and make you hold your breath until you see movement.
  • How you want to protect them from the whole world when you watch them sleeping.
