Moms During Week 13

Are you getting enough sleep? Being a mother can be exhausting, so make sure you are catching enough snooze time each day. You need all of your energy to maintain your milk flow, keep up with those late-night waking periods, and your every day, normal tasks. Try taking naps when your baby naps. If you can’t nap, ask for some help in the evenings, so that you can get to bed at a decent hour as well.

And if you just can’t find the sleep that you need, don’t worry — your body will catch up and your baby will eventually sleep. Severe sleep deprivation can escalate medical conditions, especially postpartum depression, so be sure to talk to your own doctor if you feel like sleep deprivation is affecting your activities of daily life. Everyone expects parents to be sleep-deprived, but it i’s important to evaluate your own health.
