"It's fantastic, wonderful feeling," says the future queen of Sweden, who welcomed baby Estelle with Prince Daniel on February 23.
"Everything's going well, but it's still early days. All she does is eat and sleep."
The Swedish daily paper Aftonbladet chatted to Victoria while she was out on a stroll with the newborn princess in the park adjoining the family home Haga Palace in Stockholm.
She told them that having a baby had been a "massive life change" and that she was keen to make the most of this special time.
"I want to have this time for myself, to be with Estelle," she said. "I think it's important to make the most of it and take advantage of this chance to stay home while I can."
Victoria also told of her happiness to welcome a baby just as the weather is getting better.
"I'm happy to have had a spring baby," said the 34-year-old. "We don't have to put her in winter clothes."
