ADVICE FOR NEW MOTHERS

From TODAY, Voices

Having a new baby in the house is an exciting experience, but it can also be pretty overwhelming.

 

New mothers have a way of wanting to do everything themselves. They care for the baby around the clock and completely throw themselves into the job of motherhood. They also tend to over worry about every little bump or sniffle.

 

This can easily lead to exhaustion. The best advice I give new mothers is, don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you have friends or family nearby, accept their offers of food or babysitting on occasion.

 

Also, get to know other new mothers. Maybe you can join a support group or your local community club.

 

Above all, learn to relax and enjoy your precious little gift. He or she will be grown before you know it.
