Save more. Now that you have another addition to your family, it is important to save more money, so as to secure the future of your child.
Get some exercise. If you want to lose all the pregnancy weight and get back to being in shape, make some time for daily exercise!
Do some research on the Internet or read books, on what are the various ways to care for your child, especially if your baby has certain special needs.
De-stress! Having a new baby around can be rather stressful, so mediate or practice yoga to find relief from stress.
Have a schedule. As much as possible, try to cultivate a schedule for your baby's napping and feeding patterns, so that you can get some rest!
