Don't try to be superwoman. Don't be afraid to ask for help, and don't sweat the small stuff.

Buy two AC-powered swings, get night help, and take any help that anyone offers!

You will survive the infant stage, and know you are doing the best you can!

It is ok for your baby to cry. If they are feed, diapered and clothed they will be ok. Ditto to what everyone else sad too.

Uh, yeah. We planned on DH staying home a week, and that turned into 2 weeks. Then the third week he had to come home early some nights. But I also had PPD, which didn't help.

Pre cook meals and freeze them. Get help with simple tasks! Take all help offered. Sleep whenever you can.

As you children get older it'll get easier in some ways and harder in other. Make sure when your children can, stick to a sleep schedule and try not to vacation when they are around 2 years old. It throws off the schedule and it's hard to get back on to it. A good night sleep will do all of you a world of good. In my opinion it's the most important way to keep your sanity. They can't starve themselves and you are a good mom so they're getting decent nutrition but sleep is what we all need to not be cranky.
