1) If I have to give LB a bottle in public and she spits up everything and essentially coats me and herself, I will not die of embarrassment. And no one will point fingers and laugh. (At least, they didn’t do it where I could see it…)
2) There is a saturation point to diapers and, even if they say “12 hour protection” on the box, it is possible to reach that point in 3. And your baby gets pretty grumpy when she’s cold because she’s got pee up her back.
Also, it’s kinda depressing when I’m out with LB in Target and a woman comes up to me and says, “It’s hard at first, but it does get easier. One day, you’ll wake up and actually have time to do your hair and makeup.” I wanted to tell her that I had done my hair and I never wear makeup. I didn’t need to have a baby to look shitty; I can manage it just fine by myself, thank you very much.
