Having a newborn is one of the most exciting, yet exhausting times of your life. As a new mom myself, I feel your pain. It seems like the work during the day is never-ending, and then just when you fall asleep at night…the baby cries. As new moms, we are hard-wired to run on coffee and adrenaline. Somewhere in the midst of all of those long nights, the ‘mommy worry’ creeps in. Is the baby breathing? What if she rolls over in her sleep? Will I sleep through her crying? As a mom of three, I’ve learned a few tips for surviving those long nights with a newborn:

  1. Ask for help. Whether it’s your mom or hubby, ask someone for help. You will be amazed at what a few hours of uninterrupted sleep will do for you. If your little one isn’t taking a bottle yet, ask for help during the day while the baby is awake.
  2. Say this with me: “It Can Wait”. Having a newborn in the house means you are in survival mode. If you have to order takeout or the laundry piles up, it’s ok. It can wait. If you are barely surviving and running on an hour of sleep, give yourself a break. As long as no one is starving and the house isn’t on fire-you are doing a great job.
  3. Select an amazing baby monitor. We’ve all had the $10 baby monitors that work sometimes and other times, they don’t. Angelcare is here to help with that. Their amazing monitors are just what each new mom needs. Not only does the monitor feature a beautiful color screen with auto day and night vision, it also features a movement board Sensor Pad. This pad is placed under your baby’s mattress. If baby doesn’t move for 20 seconds, it alarms to let you know. What an amazing peace of mind for a new mom. No more waking up 10 times during the night to check if baby is breathing (come on…we’ve all done it). A few of my other favorite features of the Angelcare AC1300 are: adjustable Movement Pad Sensitivity, Parent Unit Locator (sleep deprivation = lost items), Nursery Night Light and Temperature Display and Control.

I am fortunate to have a job that allows me to work from home and stay home with my new baby. I found myself going back to work quickly this time around it was great to be able to have this monitor so I could call get work done knowing she was sleeping calmly in her nursery. I highly recommend the Angelcare monitor to help you get through those long nights (and days) as a new mom.

Also, Angelcare has released two new monitors early this year: the AC417 and AC517 will. These new monitors feature the only wireless movement sensor pad on the market and Angelcare’s new activity analytics for tracking baby’s movement level like restlessness, rollovers, and kicks. These features are great for parents to have even more peace of mind! Click here to learn more about them.
