Get Your Partner In The Mix
This might go without saying, but involve your partner in caring for both you and the baby. The more you can get him (or her) changing diapers, soothing the baby, and contributing to household tasks, the more likely this support will continue into the future. It's easy as a first-time mom to want to do it all yourself, but caretaking is integral to bonding as a family and you'll get more rest if you take turns.
