Your newborn is going to be the center of your universe for a while; at least until schedules are established and you have a little time to yourself. Caring for a newborn is an exhausting experience for sure, but it can be one of the most precious times of your life.

If your mom wants to help out for an extended period, let her come. Face it, there are not many times in your life that others are going to be willing to drop whatever they are doing to help you out; accept help gladly.
