Staying active during the day
Whilst it's important that your baby has regular naps you also both need to be active during the day. Any regular exercise will give you more energy and also make it easier for you to sleep or grab a power nap.
You don't have to join a gym - simply getting out in the fresh air will do. So visit friends, go out with the pram - anything that will tire them out for the evening. If you need to perk yourself up try a cool shower, aromatherapy oil or scented candles.
Eating for energy
Eat well and stick to slow-release energy foods like brown rice, whole wheat noodles/ wholemeal pasta or fruit that won't pick you up and then plunge you into a lethargic dip afterwards. And drink plenty of water!
Lastly, if you are feeling tired and down, just remind yourself that this isn't going to last forever. Give your baby a cuddle and remember how much they're worth it.
