Most young mothers after the birth of a child plunge into the abyss of household chores, which have no end or edge. For some reason, it is believed that with the advent of the crumbs, the whole life of the parents should henceforth be devoted to his needs. Nevertheless, your time can be organized in such a way that mom will have time for home, for loved ones and for herself, her beloved.
Your life will quickly enter into a familiar and measured track if you manage to set a routine and stick to it. It is desirable that the schedule take into account the responsibilities of both mom and dad, and other relatives who have expressed a desire to help, because you should not consider caring for a child the exclusive responsibility of the mother.
Newborns are characterized by an early rise and frequent feedings. You can wake up at 6 in the morning, feed the baby, and then send him to “fill up” in the stroller on the balcony or in the yard. Of course, in such cases it is desirable to use a baby monitor. Mom at this time can also still relax before a busy day. The time before the day’s walk should be devoted to communicating with the baby. It is advisable to send relatives for a daytime walk, and at this time the mother will be able to carry out some of her personal plans or cook dinner. Then comes the time of feeding and changing clothes, after which it is worth taking a walk with your mother. Upon returning home, organize a family dinner and games together. Then comes the time for evening hygiene procedures. It is best to lay the baby early so that there is time to communicate with other family members and with her beloved husband as well.
In order for the baby to also “agree” to stick to your schedule, you will have to be firm at first and learn not to get hung up on his whims. The determination and calmness you have shown will be the best means to strengthen the schedule you have developed. When your baby is a few months old, you will also consistently and firmly be able to wean him from night feedings, thereby freeing up the whole night for yourself, which from now on you can devote to restful sleep — as a rule, this will take no more than a week, although the first few nights will be sleepless and nervous. Thus, you will have even more strength for “combat accomplishments” during the day. You should also not refuse the help offered by relatives — especially since the baby, for more harmonious development, should communicate not only with his mother, but also with other family members.
