3 Tips every knew mom should know:
1. REST in the first two weeks when baby is sleepy so when the babe wakes up, you are not depleted.
2. If you catch yourself thinking “I’m not that tired,” with a newborn at home, it’s likely a sign of sleep deprivation. Go take a nap 🙂
3. Only allow visitors in first few weeks whom you are comfortable asking for help. Surround yourself with these people and don’t be afraid to ask for help.
Best advice you’ve ever been given?: When you have a challenging parenting moment, take a deep breath and know that no matter how challenging that moment is, It Won’t Last Forever, It Will Pass.
