I just cleaned out my daughter's closet the other day and came across one of my baby's newborn diapers. I can't believe she used to be that small (she's 5 months now).
Since nursing and diaper changes have been my reality the last several months, I thought it might be fun to write a post titled, “You Might Have a Newborn if…”
I had some friends and family contribute some of their own, let's see if you have any to add!

You Might Have a Newborn if:
- Postpartum Trips to the bathroom resemble a horror scene
- The Neighborhood kid's runny noses and noisy mouths become enemy #1
- You've ordered take out more than 3 times in the last week
- You have no idea what day it is or when you showered last
- When going to get milk is your big outing for the week
- Fearing a blowout has nothing to do with the tires on your car
- When you choose a nap over shopping, socializing and even eating
- You have stray diapers in every room of the house
- You have a million burp cloths, but never one within reach when you need it
- Your husband takes his work suit to the dry cleaners once a week
- You start dreaming of actually dreaming
- The people you used to call friends become your worst enemies when they show up at your house unannounced
- You have panic attacks when someone knocks on the door because you finally got your baby to latch on
- You find yourself weeping over everything
- Once you finally fall asleep you wake yourself back up just to make sure your baby is still breathing
- Instead of actual food, your freezer is stocked with “mommy's milk”
- You are so sleep deprived you swear you can hear your breast pump speaking to you
- when you cry because you know the place on your body that hurts the most (nipples) has to be sacrificed to a ravishing newborn 12 times a day
- If you're making a midnight run to replace a lost binky
- When you rock back and forth while talking to a friend and you're not even holding a baby
- You're eating cereal out of the box for dinner because you're too stinking tired to pour the milk
- You are overcome with thirst the moment you start to nurse, but you don't dare try getting a drink just in case your baby loses her latch
- You start eating more than your husband
- You find a diaper in the washing machine
- You start wearing yellow to help blend in the yellow blow outs
- At a social function, you look down in horror and notice your baby had a blow out and you have no idea how long you've been it showing off
- If you take an extra-long detour driving home because your baby is finally sleeping
- If you accidentally talk “baby” to an adult
- If you start saying “daddy” in reference to your husband, even when the baby is not in the room
Of everyone that I asked there was a common theme of blowouts, diapers, and not wanting to leave the house.
Which is why it's so wonderful that Pampers® has a rewards program so that you can shop at home with points that you accumulate from all those diapers! If you're going to break the bank with your diaper costs, you might as well be earning prizes for it!
I'm curious…Do You Have any Embarrassing blowout Stories?
Pampers® Swaddlers are the #1 choice of hospitals (based on sales data), and this might be because they are the softest Pampers® diapers available. The Unique Absorb Away Liner pulls wetness and mess away from baby's skin so that there is no irritation, and here's the BONUS: they have a color-changing wetness indicator so that you know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE when a mess is detected (this could have saved me from a few embarrassing moments). Pampers Swaddlers are available in size newborn up to size 5.
If you no longer have children in diapers, but this post has sent you down memory lane, do a “diaper ditch” for some young parents with this fun “You've Been Pampered” printable!
I'd love for you all to finish this statement with your comments below!
