How friends can make a world of difference in a new mom’s life.
Bringing home a new baby is not only one of life’s most rewarding moments, it’s also one of life’s most challenging. And if there was ever a time when new moms need to call on a friend or two, it’s in those first few weeks of a baby’s life says Erica Wells, co-author of The Survival Guide for Rookie Moms. “It is so tough to hold it all together, sot he number one piece of advice that we like to give new moms is don’t go at it alone. Arm yourself with the support network that can help you with the laundry, with the cooking and help you get some very much needed sleep. So, ask your husband, ask your grandmother, ask your aunts and uncles – anybody who’s willing to help you out, to come over and take some of that load off your back because as a new mom you are just absolutely overwhelmed.”
