After so many weeks of being in your belly it's hard to imagine that little one is going to be arriving soon. But he'll be here before you know it. There will be dreamy days and days you wish you could fall asleep long enough to dream. There will be days you can't bear to tear yourself away from your nugget and others you'll wonder if you'll ever detach. We know it's amazing, but sometimes mama needs a little time to herself. It can be something as simple as cozying up on the couch without a baby in your arms or running out to the store on your own. Sometimes just a few simple minutes can recharge you and have you missing baby immediately. And let us tell you, those minutes can be priceless. Here we've put together a few tools that will put baby into sleep mode and a few of our favorite pieces to help you feel a little you.

The coronavirus pandemic is setting up our communities for genuine mental health concerns. This may be especially true for new parents. When will 'normal' life return? How will I pay for diapers and baby food? Will my mom be able to help us now? What if my baby or my family get COVID-19? Unfortunately, no one knows the long-term impact or answers just yet.

Most families have built a network of social support by the time they have their first child—if they don't already have a support system, they develop one through various baby classes and groups set up for parents. The creation of the village can be instrumental to the mental health of new parents. Social distancing, the lockdown of cities, and isolation will inadvertently affect the type of support available.
