As a new mom, you have to structure your day around your newborn; it’s an unavoidable fact of mom’s life. So it’s all the more vital that you can take advantage of the moments in your day where you can relax, take a breather, or get some work done. It’s essential to make time for yourself, even as much as you give to your little one. Use morning nap time to get ready for your day. Working around the baby’s schedule can give you a sense of control and structure to your day at home.
