1. Plan Ahead

After bringing your baby home, the last thing you will have time and energy for is cooking.

Even if you have someone drop off a few meals, or have a loved one stay a day or two to help, the first 4 weeks are going to be bedlam.

So plan ahead!

Cook and freeze meals, or stock your pantry and freezer with easy-to-make meals that you or your significant other can prepare in a moment's notice.

2. Designate Help

Whether you’re a single mom, or whether you have an armload of friends and family who are all willing to move in and help out for a whole month, you need to specify who you want to help out and what tasks they should do.

Have someone in charge of taking hospital pictures and notifying the family of junior’s birth, someone who can grocery shop and meal prep, and someone willing to hold the baby while you nap or shower.

3. Put Convenience First

We live in a duplex, so I have three levels.

I learned early on that keeping diaper changing supplies and feeding supplies on every level was essential to preventing me from running around all day!

Climbing stairs is not what a new mom should spend her days doing.

Cue a lesson from me and at least toss a pack of diapers and wipes and a travel changing pad on the floor if you don’t have the space to set up another changing station on each level.
