Coping in Hospital with a newborn baby

Forming a routine, the early days!
Whilst you are still in hospital you will be giving your baby a feed around every three hours, night and day. Before you feed your baby you might want to change him or her (unless you find that he or she tends to poo after a feed in which case leave him or her and change him after the feed) A basic routine can be formed around your baby’s mealtimes and of course around your own mealtimes as well as visiting hours. You would be wise to sleep when your baby is asleep if at all possible. This will become the basis of your baby’s routine!

You should be shown how to bath your baby whilst you are still in hospital. If you have not and would like to know how to do this please ask your midwife for help.

Coming out of Hospital - The first few weeks after birth
Once you feel confident with your chosen feeding method and you have been pronounced fit to leave hospital (especially after having a caesarean) you will be able to come home. It is vital that you have everything set up for when you come out of hospital. If you went into hospital suddenly, try to ensure that someone has organised your home ready for your return (this could be by your partner or mum or a friend!)

When you get home try to do as little as possible in the first few days. Eat and drink plenty and get plenty of rest. Continue to feed your baby every 3 hours day and night, changing nappies when necessary. At first you may have to change nappies very frequently, but after a week or two this may tail off to around 5 times a day.

Don’t feel that you have to prepare elaborate meals for people who come to see you and your new baby, stock up on biscuits and tea bags and let them make you your cup of tea! For the family see if you can either get someone else to cook for you in the first few days after the birth or prepare very simple meals that don’t take too much preparation (if you’re at home for a while in the day time pop some jacket potatoes and a simple casserole into the oven (pop a chopped onion and chopped carrot into a casserole dish along with some cubed meat, top up with water add a sprinkling of herbs and cook for a few hours on a low heat!)

Get Dad/ Granny / grandad/ a friend to change nappies, or prepare bottles or whizz round with the vacuum. Order groceries online and do your banking online too. Ignore none essential tasks and get plenty of rest!
