From simple things like taking a shower, to big things like not giving yourself time to pursue your own interests, being a new mum can be hard work.
We’re 70% water, so hydration is key. If you’re breastfeeding it is especially important to watch your fluid intake. Even if you’re not nursing, water is necessary to help maintain skin flexibility and joint protection.
You had a life before your little one arrived and you should hold onto that person now that you’re a new mother. Of course you won’t have as much time to dedicate to your interests, but take an hour or two a week to find yourself again.
Keep your expectations realistic. No one can do it all, let alone do it perfectly. Work toward reasonable, achievable goals, whether dealing with feelings, doing housework or losing your pre-baby weight.
It’s important to take some time out for yourself both before and after welcoming your bundle of joy to the world.
