Although having a baby is a normal and natural event, it is a time that requires a lot of adjustments. Consider these practical “post-partum” suggestions for taking care of you with a new baby so that you have the energy and desire to care for your newborn and your household in the way that you would like. It can be difficult to make yourself a priority during this time, but you must care for yourself before you can nurture others.
Last week we featured the “New Parent Checklist” from Knock Knock and this week we bring you the highly useful “Don’t Kill the Kids and Other Babysitter Basics” notepad. Every time you are about to leave the kids with a babysitter, you have to go over all the tedious but important details she needs to know and worry that she won’t remember them. Even if you have the same babysitter, what she needs to know often changes. Well the “Don’t Kill the Kids” notepad is a fun form you can fill out with all the important details: where you’ll be, emergency numbers, medical information, rules, bedtimes and bedtime rituals and much more as well as a space for miscellaneous notes.
