9 Things All New Moms Should Do For Themselves

By Danielle |

Pedicure time!

When we become mothers a little switch inside out head is turned on and we start to put the needs of everyone else before our own. Our children, family… sometimes even strangers in our lives.

Its not necessarily a bad thing — but we can’t forget to take care of ourselves as well. If Mommy isn’t happy — nobody is! Right?

I started thinking about some of the stuff I do in my life to maintain some sort of sanity and stay a well rounded mommy. The kind that doesn’t easily snap on someone.

These are all the activities I need to make time for and I think all new moms should include in their week — or day!

Be sure to comment below with some of the things that kept you sane after giving birth, because we are all so different you may really help a new mom in need!
