The first night after bringing your baby home will probably be the most daunting night of your life. You spend months preparing yourself for the birth. But not as much emphasis is put on preparing yourself for the first night. This can leave many new mothers feeling scared and nervous about what they should be doing after they leave the comfort of the hospital. So instead of leaving everything to the last minute, use this guide to help you plan and get organised before your baby arrives.
Plan what you’re doing for dinner
It’s likely that you or your partner will want to cook after such a long couple of days. Plus your local shops may be shut if you arrive home at night or on a Sunday. So plan ahead and make sure your kitchen is stocked up with plenty of food. You could even cook a meal and freeze it beforehand. All you would then have to do is defrost it. Alternatively, you might just want to order a takeaway. The majority of takeaways are open till late and offer a wide variety of food for you to choose from. So get some menus and store them in a safe place so you can call them as soon as you get home.
