You just spent a few days pampered, watched and helped in the maternity after the birth of baby, but now is the time to go home. How to manage this change of pace?

Be thoughtful

  • You want to go home, to find your companion and possibly your elders, but it is stronger than you, you anguish. To better apprehend this return, it is important to prepare it in advance. Buy diapers, wipes, sanitary napkins, everything you'll need, to avoid running to the store at the last minute.

Get organized

  • Once arrived, rest, it is the most important. But also the most difficult! Between hungry baby at night and afternoon visits, you do not have a second to yourself. Do not panic, just limit the visits to not have too many people too often.
  • If you can not, ask daddy to explain to family and friends that you need rest. Sleep at the same time as a baby, take a nap in the afternoon and go to bed early, it will allow you to be fresh and available when the little monster is hungry.

The baby-blues of the first days

  • In the first days, if your dad works, ask your mom, your sister or a friend to help you out. However, it must agree to do according to your desires and your principles, even if it does not completely agree. No worries if you feel a bit depressed, it's perfectly normal. This is called baby blues, it is due to the sudden decrease in your hormone levels and lasts only a few days.

Shopping and housekeeping aside

  • Fill the cupboards and the freezer, you will get back to the stove in some time, when you will be put back. Send the person helping you to the supermarket or have them delivered. Today with the internet, you can even do your shopping from your sofa and have it delivered at the time you want! Ditto for the household, give up a few days, it is not very serious. If the vacuum has not been gone for a week, he can wait for one more.

The role of dad

  • Your companion can sometimes feel excluded from this relationship between you and the baby, especially if you are breastfeeding. Make sure he feels involved, by letting him bathe or caring for example. He will be happy to take care of it if he has not been able to do it during the day and it will also allow you to have some time to yourself.
