|« Feeling Lonely||Calming Bath Time »|
When your baby has been crying for what seems like an age, and nothing you do will settle them, call a friend, a neighbor, someone in your family to relieve you. Invite someone else to hold the baby for a while or take baby for a stroll around the block and it might result in some peace and quiet for you both!
It's easy to think that as a new mother you need to handle every situation on your own but knowing when to call in some help is an important part of parenting. Babies can stretch even the calmest and most competent of parents, so know your limits and call in a bit of help if you can.
And, why not schedule a friend to visit and have them look after the baby for just half an hour so you can enjoy a long, luxurious care-free shower or heavenly bubble bath with no interruptions? Or, go off to have your hair done or a manicure knowing that baby is in good hands or a reliable friend. You need a little time to yourself occasionally.
Make use of the people around you who are so willing to help you out - but don't wait for them to approach you - ask them first and see how delighted they are!
