You have a baby, and thatís a big responsibility. But you need to take time for yourself, too. You need to do some things that make you feel good. In turn, this will let you have more fun with your baby.

Here are a few suggestions:

  • Have your babyís dad, a friend or a relative watch the baby while you nap.
  • Take time for a warm, relaxing bath when your baby is asleep.
  • Ask your husband or a friend to give you a shoulder massage when you feel tense.
  • Exercise (with your doctorís OK). Exercise can make you feel less tired and better all over.
  • Rent a movie youíll enjoy. You can watch it while you nurse your baby.
  • Donít answer the phone if you are too tired to talk. If it is important (or sometimes even if it isnít), the person will call back. Or you can install an answering machine.

Doing a few things you enjoy isnít selfish. It is a good way to take care of yourself and your baby.
