Am I the only previously-new mom who felt like that?
On Being a New Mom
One of my favorite kid-focused blogs linked to this article about what a new mommy really needs after a baby is born. A lot of it references not really having any visitors for a while. Maybe it was because I've been so lucky to have my mom with me doing all of those wonderful house things like cooking, cleaning, and caring for the rest of the family, but I never once wished that someone hadn't stopped by for a visit. I always love to have visitors... especially when there's a new baby to show off! As long as the visitor is understanding that my boob might have the baby attached to it for a little while while they are there (covered, of course), I don't care who sees me all slobbish. I'm sure any visitor would understand. I loved having visitors in the hospital too, whether they called ahead or not.
