Health Tip: Survival Tips for New Moms

(HealthDay News) -- A new baby brings plenty of joy, but also exhaustion and plenty of adjustments.

The New York State Department of Health suggests:

  • Finding someone you trust to watch the baby, so you can make some time for yourself.

  • Indulging in something you really enjoy while baby is asleep. Examples include taking a bath, reading a book, getting a nap or exercising.

  • Getting out of the house by taking baby for a short stroll, or visiting with friends.

  • Spending time with other moms to talk and share in fun activities.
