There’s nothing wrong with wearing your PJs all day every now and again. When you have a new baby, the last thing on your mind is sorting yourself out. But remember, in order to look after your baby, you’ve got to look after yourself too. Force yourself to get a quick wash and put on some clothes; something as simple as a nice blouse. You’ll feel 1000% better and more in control. It’ll do wonders for your own mental health and when you feel good, baby will feel good too!
Be prepared to do a whole load of baby washing in those first few weeks. For such tiny things, babies can make a BIG mess!
They do always say sleep when baby sleeps. That’s easier said than done, trust us, we know. When the washing is piling up or the dust bunnies start to bounce around, it can play on your mind to do housework whilst the baby is sleeping. If you don’t look after yourself, then you can’t take care of your baby. The dust bunnies can wait.
