Time Frame For Restoring Order After Baby

What’s your time frame for restoring order after the baby?

By month five or six it's probably going to be easy for most moms to fall into a full routine; however, it depends a lot on the birth experience and the individual baby's needs. No mom should feel pressure! You have to give yourself a break - especially in the early months. Organizing does take time.

But do keep yourself on the ball. Do the best you can to get back to normal while you’re integrating all these new activities and responsibilities into your life. It’s very important to work hard to establish a schedule and then you know when you can sleep and when you can work on projects. But the new mom needs to balance her need to rest and repair her body with her need to feather her nest. If you burn yourself out, you’re of no use to your baby. Balance.
