Have your baby sleep close to your bed (or in your bed). Have diapers and wipes within arms reach as well. Recovering is a little easier when you don't have to get in and out of bed so much, but can instead just reach over and grab baby, (at least it was for me).

I only had three pair, so I had DH throw them in a lingerie laundry bag and throw them in the washing machine on the gentle cycle. They actually washed really well and didn't get torn up.
I took home a pair or two and machine washed them as well! I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one!
