Rest and sleep are so important for you and your baby. Try to keep visitors to a minimum until you feel ready to entertain. People who do visit should
be encouraged to stay for just a short time. Very often your partner will take charge of organising visitors so he should be aware of your need to sleep.
Stock up your freezer with cooked meals or have family members lined up to provide you with meals for the first week or so. Not having to think
about cooking will allow you to spend more time with your new baby. It is important to drink plenty of fluids so have plenty of drinking water
easily available. When breastfeeding you may feel thirsty so keep a drink nearby and avoid very fizzy drinks or drinks with a high caffeine content.
