Sometimes, parents ask us more generic questions about the life as a new mom. While our founders are two men, the NOLEO FAM has plenty of moms to get insights and experience from.
As an overview, a typical day for a mom with a newborn can be both rewarding and exhausting. As a new mom, you are likely experiencing a mix of emotions and adjusting to your new role. Here is a glimpse into a typical day for a mom with a newborn:
Early morning: Your day likely starts before the sun comes up, as newborns have small stomachs and need to eat frequently. This means frequent feedings and diaper changes, which can be tiring but also provide special bonding time with your little one.
Mid-morning: After a few feedings and diaper changes, it's time for some much-needed rest for both you and your baby. This is a great time for you to catch up on some sleep, as newborns tend to nap frequently throughout the day.
Afternoon: As the day goes on, you may find yourself doing a bit of light household chores, such as laundry and dishes, while also continuing to feed and care for your baby. You may also have visitors or family members stopping by to meet the newest addition to your family.
Evening: The evening is often a busy time for moms with newborns. In addition to feedings and diaper changes, you may also have to give your baby a bath and put them to bed. This can be a challenging time, as newborns can be fussy and may have difficulty settling down for the night.
Night: Once your baby is asleep, it's important for you to take care of yourself as well. This may mean catching up on some much-needed rest, or taking a few moments to relax and unwind before starting the cycle again the next day.
Being a mom with a newborn is a wonderful but demanding experience. It's important to take care of yourself and ask for help when you need it. With time, you will find your rhythm and settle into your new role as a mom.
