Bringing new life into this world can be a magical and wonderful experience, even after you have gone through the ordeal of carrying your baby for nine months and going through the birthing process. It is no surprise then that you would love nothing more than to spend as much time with your new-born baby to ensure that they are happy and healthy. However, it is vital that you ensure that you are also looking after yourself. After all, a mother needs to be well and fighting fit if they are to protect their baby from the world.

Here are a few ways you can look after your health but also the health of your baby. 

Make Sure You Have Time to Yourself

While you have the newfound responsibility to care for and look after your baby, you also need to have a balance between spending time with your baby and taking time for yourself so that you can recharge your batteries. You can do this by speaking with your partner and ensuring that the both of you have equal amounts of responsibilities, but also so that you can come up with a game plan. For instance, if one of you is still working, then when they get home, they may have to take the baby for an hour or two while the other can have some time for themselves. 

You may also wish to speak with your family and see whether they can help you out when times get overwhelming for you. Your parents would most likely love nothing more than to spend a day with their grandchild, and while your baby is being looked after, you can pamper yourself and catch up on some much-needed sleep.

Keep Stocked Up on Baby Formula, Nappies and Bottles

Help keep stress at bay by ensuring that you have the essentials stocked up. There is nothing more stressful than realising that you are running low on baby formula or nappies and needing to find a way to get some quickly – especially if you do not have the time to head out to the store. The best way to keep your supplies stocked up is finding an online pharmacy that you can easily order from, saving you time and a lot of effort. All you have to do is click on an online chemist in Australia, put the items in the basket, checkout, and have the items delivered to your home. Plus, if you head to a discount chemist, you can save money, too!

Rotate the Night Shift

If you have a partner, then be sure to rotate the night shift so that you are taking it in turns when your baby stirs and needs feeding or changing in the middle of the night. This is only fair, as it helps stop one of you from getting burnt out. Make sure you create a rota so that you can remember whose turn it is. 

Becoming a parent is a huge responsibility, which means you will need to ensure that you are not only caring for your baby but also yourself. The aforementioned tips are a few ways you can help keep both mum and baby happy and healthy.
