It will be necessary for you: the carriage, a basket or a cradle for a dream, a pelenalny little table, is a lot of diapers (reusable or disposable), and also clothes for the newborn. There is no need to buy everything at once, but it is worth looking narrowly at the range in shops to gain an impression about what is available on sale, to decide on what is to the taste to you more and will correspond to your lifestyle.
If you are going to come back from maternity hospital on the car, then it is necessary to prepare in advance a car seat as it is forbidden to transport children in the car without special child seats.

As a rule, restoration after Cesarean section takes longer time, than restoration after the delivery with a natural way.
is not dependent
- on how there took place your childbirth, the additional help will never prevent. Therefore ask close friends and relatives about the help. Report, than they can help. Never refuse the offered help.
Restoration after the delivery
Anything, nothing will be able absolutely to prepare you to the stunning moment of the birth of the child. Your genitals will be painful, the breast will be sensitive, huge and unfamiliar, and, most likely, you will have differences of mood caused by hormonal changes. The next several weeks you will feel strange feeling as if you appeared in a twilight zone where day and night merged together. You as if in fog, you feel washed-out, but happy. You any more never in life will test similar fatigue, but, at the same time, your love to the child will be so overflowing that you will even sometimes cry with happiness.
If childbirth took place
Right after childbirth in maternity hospital, then try in plenty to have a rest and learn to look after the newborn baby. With it you will be helped by personnel of maternity hospital. Coming back home
with the kid
Most of mothers after the delivery remain in maternity hospital for 3 - 4 days so by the time of return home you just have milk, you recovered from childbirth not enough, and relatives and friends already hurry to visit.
In the first days after return from maternity hospital: Forget
- about homework and cooking, use free time for a dream.
- do not forget to remind
to yourself that this chaos will not be long and everything will fall into place soon.
to yourself that to make milk, mothers are necessary rest and rest (write it on paper and ask the father of the child to read you this record aloud in the mornings).
Should not be
- too anxious with bathing of the child. If your kid likes to bathe (by the way, fathers can bathe children not worse, than mothers), then it is simply magnificent. If your kid does not like to accept trays, then it is possible to be limited within several days to washing and a podmyvaniye.
- do not worry about day and night clothes for your kid - he will not notice a difference. It is important to child to be in clean clothes while the child pure, change of linen is twice a day not obligatory.
- If your kid is capricious, then try to take it on hands in different provisions and if it does not help, ask somebody another it to take. Very often children calm down on hands at quieter person (especially if his body does not smell of breast milk). If there is nearby no person who could help you, lay the kid in a bed / basket, be convinced that he in safety, and leave the kid of one for several minutes. Sometimes children can be overexcited, and they need some time “to cool down“.
- you do not exhaust yourself calculations of number of times when you had to rise and go to the kid in the middle of night. Already it seems to you that you broke all records on exhaustion degree in comparison with other mothers of newborns. To rise and approach much better quietly the kid in the weakened, dozing state, and it is better to turn off hours the dial to a wall. Soon you get used and you will wake up in the mornings, without remembering precisely whether it was necessary to rise this night.
After the delivery to a body of the woman is necessary for
restoration. You will have quite severe bleeding (even if there was childbirth by Cesarean section), and from a breast colostrum can exude. Do not wait that you will begin to feel a sexual attraction!
your night clothes will consist of a bra for feeding with laying for a breast, big pants with huge hygienic laying and a spacious nightgown which will hide all this while you walk up and down all night long with the child on hands. But be sure, all this will pass. Bleeding stops approximately in a month after the delivery (and sometimes and much earlier), from a breast will cease to flow as soon as a certain rhythm of feeding is established, and, naturally, the child will gradually develop the dream mode, so, you will be able to carry out the most part of night to beds, enjoying a night dream!
Two weeks after the delivery
In two weeks after the delivery for you can come heavy time when the fatigue from sleep debts collects, and primary euphoria and delight “I became mother!“ will gradually pass. Besides, at your kid who earlier was well sleeping intestinal gripes can begin, and crying level considerably will increase. We suggest to use our recommendations:
- Resort to services of your pediatrician. This is the qualified specialist in the field of children`s health, and he will propose to you a set of versions of the solution of problems.
- you Ask for help of the friends and relatives visiting you. For example, ask them to occupy the child until you are in soul. Remember that now not you have to care for guests, and they for you!
- Never refuse the offered help. We advise to make the list of necessary works and to ask to execute some of them to the one who offers you the services.
If you does not leave
- feeling as if only the kid interests all, and you do not, then constantly speak to yourself:“ I took out this child. I am delightful. I am of great importance“. Also repeat it. Often.
