Have you recently given birth to a baby? Or do you expect to have a baby soon? Welcoming a new baby can be overwhelming and gives you new hope and light in life.
However, managing a baby is not a piece of cake. You will have to be vigilant all the time to see what they are doing, feed them regularly and manage their odd sleeping times. During this process, you may not get enough sleep, which can leave you feeling irritable, tired and sleep deprived. However, if both partners take the same initiative, these simple tips can help them get enough sleep and rest.
Parenting is a task for two people. Since mothers have to breastfeed the baby, they are generally more careful with the child, but fathers must also be equally responsible. Take turns taking care of the baby. When the mother feeds the child, you rest and when she is free, the father has to take care of the baby and let the mother sleep.
- Nap when baby sleeps
Sleeping when the baby is asleep is the key to a good night’s sleep. Don’t think about doing the chores after the baby sleeps, but try to rest.
- Try to build a routine
While there is no way a child can sleep or eat the way you want, you can try building a routine of feeding, playing and sleeping the baby at a specific time each day. Also put them in the bed at a fixed time. Over time, the child will also adapt to the routine.
- Ask for help
It is not shy to ask for help from a family member. If you feel tired, call your family and friends and ask them to take care of the baby for some time so that you can rest.
- Say no to guests
If you have just given birth, there are several visitors who want to get to know the baby. However, you should feel comfortable saying no to them for at least a month. Not only does it give you plenty of time to get used to handling the baby and the house, but it also prevents the newborn from getting infected before vaccination.
