Being a new mom brings happiness and stress at the same time. You need to adjust to your new lifestyle and daily activities. With the constant chores at home, you may feel worn out and tired, thus risking your health. So, in order to keep your body and mind in a good shape, you might want to consider these reminders.
Take it Slow, Don’t Rush
After giving birth, you might want to get back to your younger and slimmer shape immediately. However, rushing this can only bring more stress to your life. So, take it slow. Give yourself ample time to adjust. Your body has undergone a lot of stress, so don’t add to this anymore. This way will be healthier for you and your child.
Avoid Crash Diet
Crash diet won’t shed off your weight. In fact, it will only make you add more pounds. When you force yourself in skipping meals, the tendency is to make you eat more on your next meal. This can also be unhealthy for your baby, especially if you are breastfeeding. Your milk supply may become low making it difficult for the both of you.
Do Some Exercise Activities
Don’t forget to exercise. This will keep your body energized despite of the numerous chores you need to finish. Walk outside with your baby as this can also serve as the bonding moment for the both of you. Go the park and breathe some fresh air.
Being a new mom means you need to be healthier than before in order to keep your newborn healthy as well. With your immunity at a low point, this is not the time to get sick. You need to take care of yourself first so you can also take good care of your child.
