My life revolves around my baby now – MEANING – you no longer have time for yourself, you have to put the baby first.
“Revolves around” – the most important thing in your life right now.

I have less free time since I had the baby – MEANING – less free time – no time for yourself to relax or do hobbies,
etc. – since – you used to have free time but the baby has taken up that free time.
My life revolves around my baby now
–意味–赤ちゃんの為の時間をまず第一に考えるので、自分自身の時間が無いという意味です。

“Revolves around”
–今あなたの人生で最も重要なことです。

I have less free time since I had the baby
意味 –less free time – リラックスしたり、趣味などをする時間がありません。

Since
- 以前、あなたは自由な時間を過ごしていましたが、赤ちゃんにより自由な時間は無くなりました。

  • Looking after my baby takes us most of my free time.

In order to explain that you have less time since having a baby (or giving birth if you are the mother), you can say:
Now that I have a baby, I have less time for myself.
Now - At this present moment.
This is a comparative sentence, revealing the current state of affairs. It implies that before having a
baby, you had a lot more time for yourself.

The sentence can also be rearranged:
I have less time for myself now that I have a baby.
This places more emphasis on yourself than the baby.

The same meaning is implied when you say:
Looking after my baby takes us most of my free time.
It implies that now you have little free time because you are looking after a baby.

I hope that helps!
赤ちゃんが産まれてから時間が取れなくなったと説明するためには、こんな言い方があります。
Now that I have a baby, I have less time for myself.
Now- 今
これは現状を述べて過去と比べている文です。赤ちゃんが産まれる前にはもっと自分のための時間が持てていたことを示唆しています。

この文は、節の順番を入れ替えることもできます。
I have less time for myself now that I have a baby.
これで、赤ちゃんのことよりも自分のことについて話しているように強調できます。

次のような言い方も、同じ意味を持ちます。
Looking after my baby takes us most of my free time.
これで、赤ちゃんのお世話をしているために自分の時間がほとんど取れないことを意味します。

役に立てばうれしいです!

1.You are saying that before you had your baby you had more time to yourself.
2.Explaining that babies need a lot of attention.
We use 'since' to talk about what happened starting from a fixed point in the past.
3.Saying that you had lots of time to yourself before the baby came.
loads of time = lots of time (informal)
1.子供が生まれる前までは、もっと自分に使える時間があったという言い方です。
2.子供には手がかかるという説明です。 sinceを使って何がどの時点から起こっているのか、を述べることができます。
3.子供が生まれるまでは、自分で使える時間がたくさんあった、という表現です。
loads of time = lots of time (カジュアルな言い方)

These are all appropriate to take about the change that took place after you had a baby.You could say:
-Free time doesn't exist now that I have a baby.
-My baby takes up most of my time now.
-I don't really have free time anymore.
-Free time?What's that?(In a joking manner)
これらの表現は、子供が生まれてからの変化について説明している適切な表現です。
-Free time doesn't exist now that I have a baby.子供が生まれてから自由な時間はもう存在しないわ。
-My baby takes up most of my time now.赤ちゃんが私のほとんどの時間を使ってしまうわ
-I don't really have free time anymore.もう自由な時間はあまりないわね。
-Free time?What's that?(In a joking manner)自由な時間?なにそれ?(冗談ぽ言い方)

When having a baby it takes up alot of your time looking after them so you don't have much free time or time to yourself to enjoy it
'I have less time for myself now i have a baby' is a great way to describe this
子どもができると、育児にたくさんの時間を取られ、自由な時間があまり持てなくなります。

'I have less time for myself now I have a baby'(子どもが産まれる前に比べると、時間が持てなくなった)は、それについて表す素晴らしい言い方です。

Before I had a child I had more free time. - here you are informing the person that prior to having a baby you had more time for your self. This is referred to as "free time."
After having a baby my free time has become more limited. - here you are saying that after giving brith to a baby, your free time is less than before the baby's arrival.
Before I had a child I had more free time.(子どもを産む前はもっと自由な時間があった)
- ここでは、「子どもを産む前はもっと自由な時間があった」と伝えています。自由な時間は "free time" といいます。


After having a baby my free time has become more limited.(子どもができてから、自由な時間があまり持てなくなった)
- ここでは、「子どもができてから自由な時間が減った」と伝えています。
