Paging Rosie: The 2 week Rule
Seeing as there is a theme of preparedness and survival in this week’s Morning Coffee, let’s talk a little about what happens when the baby actually comes. Just as the last two week’s of pregnancy are tough, the first two weeks of being a new mom are also incredibly difficult. I like to tell my clients about the golden rule of being a new mom: “It will get better and easier, you just have to wait 2 weeks.” Two weeks is that magical time when you are hitting your stride with breast feeding, fitting in a shower, getting out of the house (even only for a quick nip to the local coffee store), you and your baby are getting to know each other’s quirks and all will seem much more manageable. Please please, don’t panic and keep telling yourself about the 2 Week Golden Rule!
