When it comes to having a new baby, you can guarantee that people are going to want to come and meet your little son or daughter the moment they are born. This can be a blessing or it can be hugely stressful, so in this article I’m going to share my best tips on how to deal with post baby visitors.
Boundaries - Some mothers crave the busyness and love visitors, some are exhausted and just want to snuggle. Listen to your instincts and be strong in telling people when it’s time to go (or not to come at all). It is OK to have a babymoon and refuse visitors for a week or two if that is what you would prefer.
When a new baby comes in to your family, the sudden impact on your usual sleep habits can come as a huge shock. It is not uncommon for parents to feel totally exhausted and too fatigued to continue on in their regular routines.
Many experience feeling burned out and are surprised at how much of a struggle parenting this tiny little person can be.
To my darling Son. In just a few short months you will be two, and I just cant believe how the time has flown by. It seems only yesterday that you were a tiny newborn, scrunched up in my arms, with eyes only for Mama. A belly full of milk and a capacity to sleep for hours on end, (Wow was I in for a shock when that all changed!) I knew from the moment I saw you, life would never be the same again – and I was right! You have changed me so deeply, in ways I could never have imagined. The love I have for you is unwavering, unconditional, all consuming. I would fight panthers, climb mountains, even brave mother and baby groups just to see you smile… ; )
It could be argued that all babies are “high needs.” They all need to have their needs met and be cared for and especially if this is your first time, learning to be a parent requires a lot of adapting and growing, no matter how laid back your particular child is.
But for some parents, you will be aware of a difference in your own child’s nature. Early signs that they are that little bit more feisty, more challenging. They will not let their unmet needs go unnoticed, they will communicate it to you in the one way they know how. Loudly. Sounding familiar at all?
