14Don’t Just Stare At Your Baby
Those naps are a precious commodity and before you know it, the baby monitor will be going off and you won’t have any free time anymore.
Okay, so you are absolutely exhausted, you have spit-up on your shirt, there are five loads of laundry waiting to be done, and you have just wasted 10 minutes staring at your baby in their crib. Of course, watching your newborn sleep can be such a magical experience.
According to Aboutamom.com, it is nearly impossible to put your baby down to sleep and not sneak in a few more kisses and some extra moments of peace.
While there is no doubt that watching your precious little angel drift away to dreamland is magical, it is so important for moms to stay in touch with reality and focus on what she truly wants to accomplish in this window of time. If there are not any pressing things on the schedule, you may be able to relax for a few minutes and watch your baby sleep. But, it’s important to check in with yourself and make sure you won’t be upset later when other priorities never got done. Again, new moms are still learning the swing of things so it’s not uncommon to miscalculate how fast a few minutes can go by.
