I really like this article because this is something I didn't even think about before Dalton was born. You hear people say - oh, enjoy your sleep now because you won't be getting any when the baby is here, but it doesn't really sink in until you're up constantly with the baby or because you can't sleep or because you're checking if the baby is sleeping or if you're going back to work... and the list goes on. I remember I called my family doctor because I was experiencing symptoms of PPD, and the nurse told me that I needed to nap when the baby napped. I laughed at her and asked her to explain how I could do that when I work full time. She said, I guess you'll just have to find a way!
Looking back it's funny now, but also sad. It was the first time I reached out for help, and I didn't get any, so it was a while before I tried again. I think this article is neat because it gives tips about how in the heck to stay sane, which is really what you need when you have a newborn in the house.
