  • Too funny.....I would think after the first 3 mos......but really I think the term can refer to any first time mom who hasn't got the hang of things yet...her confidence.....her moxy or mama bear instinct.....some moms need the second child to finally fall into trusting their mother skills...

  • Until the 2nd child comes around :) Everyday can make you feel like a new mom.

  • What about a woman who has kids and then a newborn? Is she a new mom all over again or no?
