"It's a great feeling," Victoria told Aftonbladet, a Swedish newspaper, about motherhood. "Things are going well, but we're not completely in phase, she and I, yet. But she eats and sleeps."

Princess Estelle was born on Feb. 23. She is Victoria and her husband, Prince Daniel's, first child.

Crown Princess Victoria has already found Princess Estelle a nanny and she didn't have to look far.  She hired her childhood nanny to care for Estelle. 

Elisabeth Zimmerman, 65, told Expressen that she was happy to be Estelle's caretaker. She was nanny to all three of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia's children from 1979 to 1991.
