A break is perhaps the most desired thing for a new mom, but probably there is no way out at this moment. In the initial days of your baby, you will get very less time to sit and relax.
Starting from the morning, you have to keep on working for changing diapers, feeding, putting into new set of dresses for several times, giving bath, putting him into sleep and once he wakes up you again start on the same set of works.
Even at the night also, you are going get awake several times just to check out how he is doing in his crib? At times, you might think of leaving everything just to take rest for couple of minutes.
Rest and relaxation are very much required for every person and especially you require that more. You need to stay healthy and happy for the sake of your baby and rest of the family.
If you are exhausted and tired throughout the day, how can you take care of your baby? So, you have to manage your cores of work to make some time out for your rest and relaxation.
The best time to get some rest and relax is when your baby is taking the nap. Even if you can manage to take an half an hour nap, you will feel much better and refreshed. If you have planned to work on washing or cooking during the time your baby sleeps, you should rethink on that.
You do not need to attend your baby all the time. When your baby is full, he is not going to disturb you. You may leave him on his own and can work on something else or relax of your own.
This way, he will also learn to pass his time being alone and unattended. Simple playing things like ball or soft toys might keep him busy for some time. However, you should keep an eye on your baby, while you are busy in some other work.
Make a plan to be out for dinner or to the shopping mall, at least once in a week. Spend quality time with your husband to refresh your romance. You can also go for an afternoon walk along with your baby on the carrier or stroller. You will find that your baby is also going to enjoy this joy ride pretty soon.
