Tips for postpartum sleep and rest
Here are some tips for getting enough sleep and rest during the postpartum period:
  1. Nap when your baby naps: Take advantage of the time when your baby is sleeping to rest and sleep yourself.

  2. Get help with household chores: Ask your partner, family members, or friends to help with household chores and errands so you can focus on rest and recovery.

  3. Take breaks: It’s okay to take breaks from caring for your baby to rest and recharge.

  4. Practice good sleep hygiene: Establish a regular sleep routine and create a comfortable sleep environment by keeping the room dark, cool, and quiet. Avoid screens and other sources of blue light before bedtime, and consider using a white noise machine to help you sleep.

  5. Seek support: If you’re struggling with sleep or feeling overwhelmed, don’t hesitate to seek support from your healthcare provider, a therapist, or a support group.

Remember, getting enough sleep and rest is essential for your physical and mental health during the postpartum period.

 It’s okay to prioritize your own well-being and seek help when you need it.
