There’s nothing quite like bringing your baby home from the hospital and going, “So now what do we do?”

According to a new study, parenting skills really DON’T come to us instantly.  The researchers found it takes people an average of 103 days . . . or about three-and-a-half months . . . before they feel like they’ve got the hang of parenting.

And here are the top five signs that you HAVE gotten to the point where you know what you’re doing with your new baby . . .

1.  Being in a good routine.

2.  Knowing what the baby’s different cries and sounds mean.

3.  Being able to change a diaper quickly.

4.  Being able to leave the house with the baby and remember everything you need to bring.

5.  Not getting frustrated or panicking when the baby starts crying.
