Tom Brady is Not Used to His Newborn Yet

How Long Until You Got Used to Parenting?

New parents are hit with the reality of sleepless nights, dirty diapers, and endless feedings as soon as their newborn arrives. Some get into the swing of things after a few months, while others claim to never fully get used to it. Even star quarterback Tom Brady is having a hard time getting his head back into the game of parenting after the birth of his second son — the footballer admitted that he was still getting used to having a newborn around. It does take time to ease into parenting, but how long until you got used to being a mommy?

I just fell into everything with a newborn like I had been doing it the entire time. The only adjustment I really had to make was in regards to the sleep deprivation.. she had colic and stomach issues, etc. and I was up every hour. I had to remind myself that this would pass and that not getting sleep really wasn't the end of the world. So much really hinges on our attitudes. Everything else was so pie for me. All of the care, the extra person constnatly needing attention, lugging around the diaper bag and the 50 lb carseat, I actually really liked it all lol. Ive alwasy wanted kids though. Though, I will admit that even before I had my baby I was totally worried about potty training. I don't know why, probably over reading articles and things but everyone makes it sound like this HUGE ordeal about it. Then it happened and it was so easy I wish I hadn't worried about it so much.

I for sure got used to being a mother right away, but there was one time my son was sleeping on his playmat as a newborn and I was watching TV, and when he moved I heard a noise and freaked out. I forgot he was there! It was so funny. He was just sleeping so soundly.

me too, hershoe addict. we're trying for baby no. 1 and it's scary (exciting, but scary) to imagine just how much life will change. hey, Lil, how about starting a discussion of Teen Moms (on MTV)?

I've always wondered about adjusting to parenthood. I'm not a parent yet but I can already see some serious adjustment issues coming along with parenthood for me.
