First time parents are overindulgent and overprotective; they tend to overdo everything, especially the cleaning.  The sleepless nights, taking care of the baby, and cleaning and sanitizing everything be draining.  Read the following few tips on first time parenthood.

  • Listen to the advice that others give you; do not take it as criticism of your parenting. Learn the essentials like feeding and changing diapers from friends and family.
  • Do regular exercises and take out time for yourself. Try to relax and spend time with your spouse.
  • Do not try to stretch your limit. If the house looks dirty do not get upset, just take care of the essentials like the baby and having enough food for the household.
  • You do not have to sanitize and boil everything; after the first few weeks, only the nipples and bottles need to be sterilized continually.
