A baby Buffer Prescription for You
Taking care of your baby is your main focus right now and may still feel like a new responsibility. However, you probably have things to do (meals, laundry, bills, work, sefl-care, etc) that you had to do before the baby. Being a baby buffer means that you have to focus on your child (and family) and what is important. Take time each day to prioritize things that need to get done and make sure to take time for yourself! Even just talking on the phone to a friend while your baby is napping can bring your stress level down.
Try your best to stay "in the moment", we know that being a mom is hard work, so be sure to enjoy those sweet smile and baby kisses when you can!
