Pulling all nighters 😴—one-week-old baby

It's a good thing they're cute, right? Because woah mama, what day is it and where am I?! Okay, so you're probably (hopefully!) at home in your pajama pants, but seriously, these first few weeks are exhausting. Rest as much as you possibly can (read more about the magic of a month of rest here), and keep that baby close for skin-to-skin. You've worked so hard, and deserve all the sweet baby snuggles you can get.

P.S. Nipple cream nipple cream nipple cream. Oh, and did we mention nipple cream? We love Earth Mama Angel Baby's butter to soothe those achy nips as baby learns to feed. Welcome to motherhood, where you now have opinions about which special potions to rub on your boobies. Your baby this week: Newborns sleep in short cycles, waking frequently to feed and then drifting off to sleep again. This is absolutely normal. (But exhausting for you.) Try this: Stay in bed as much as you can and use a co-sleeping bassinet to feed baby and safely rest.
