Coping With Stress

If you have a partner you're sharing the raising of the baby with, each of you should take time to parent the baby on your own, and use your time to go off on your own, for a walk, a drive, a nap, a facial, whatever.

You can help each other, develop your own relationships with your baby, and your own styles of parenting. You also need to find time alone together. Go to a restaurant, or just sit in a park and laugh at the craziness of your life right now. Join a support group or therapy session together, if you think it would help. Don't forget to acknowlege that you love each other, appreciate each other and support each other through all the diapers, feedings, spit-up, and spills. Stress can be a real problem for anyone. Talk to those you love if you feel you're being overwhelmed by stress. Scale back to the things that are important in your life and in the life of your family. You'll get through this stressful time, together.
