Then Comes Baby in the Baby Carriage: Tips for After Baby Makes His or Her Arrival!

The months leading up to the birth of your baby are filled with planning, excitement, anxiousness and anticipation. But what happens once your little bundle of joy arrives? Many couples need to adjust to the responsibilities, change and sleeplessness that comes with a newborn.

The American Academy of Family Physicians offers some tips on how couples can adjust to all the changes a brand new baby brings to your life.

----- Help your partner de-stress after a particularly bad day.
----- Remember to communicate with each other clearly and often. Make time for this every day.
----- Tell your partner what is bothering you, and resolve any issues as soon as possible.
----- Make time for the two of you, such as after baby is asleep for the night (or until the next feeding!)
----- Focus on what is important and don't stress over the small things.

There are more tips to help you during this transition time, and you can find them in this US News and World Report article.

Pure and Honest Kids wishes you the best of luck and happiness during this exciting time of bringing home baby!
