Best Advice for New Moms: This Simple Tip Helps You Deal With the Biggest Complaint About Motherhood! by Heather Travitz
As a brand new mom, many people will tell you to sleep when your baby sleeps. This is such important and true advice! Here's why...
Mothering is a 24/7 job, and if you aren't well rested, you won't deal as well with the stresses of being a new mom.
- Elicit housework help from Dad, friends and family. Women all understand this transitional time and are usually ready and willing to help. Just ask or accept help when it's offered.
- When your baby goes down for a nap, you do the same!
- As a rule of thumb (at least most nights), when you put the baby to sleep, you should also get to bed!
Don't feel guilty about sleeping, Mom! Sleep is a biological need - not a luxury.
