Take time to care for yourself
New moms need care and comfort too
When baby comes home:
- Try to pay attention to your own needs (even though all of your energy will be focused on your baby).
- Accept that caring for him will take up most of your time. You might not always be able to eat, take a shower or - especially - sleep when you want to.
- Know that you can - and should - take a break to recharge and renew.
- Gradually ease into a routine of healthy eating and exercise.
