Besides trying to make things simpler and asking for help, I encourage you to seek out other mothers. It might be a support group at your church or local hospital, a Newborn Parenting Group, La Leche League Meeting or a group of moms in your neighborhood. Check in your area for a group to be a part of or consider starting one.
Many new mothers feel isolated and that their experience with a new baby is unique. It is a great relief and support to new mom’s to connect with other mothers. It is a great network to develop, especially if you do not have family support nearby.
