I'm exhausted! How do I manage my days with a newborn?
3 simple tips for new moms to manage their daytime routine.
Having a baby can certainly wreak havoc with you day. But don't fret; you too can do this.
While every mom and every schedule are different, here are a few thoughts that may help.
- Check your routine – you may need to eliminate some activities and gradually add them back into your routine later.
- Mom, you need to get enough rest. Schedule yourself a nap when baby and other children are napping.
- Life at home will go more smoothly if you have worked out a meal schedule for the family. I would encourage you to have a menu plan for the first 2 weeks after the baby arrives. (Use the crock-pot)
