6 life hacks to unload the stress of your baby!
Raising a baby is one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences of one's life. The joys and wonders of having a newborn are immeasurable, a sense of awe and wonder as you realize the responsibility and privilege of being a parent, but the stress of taking care of a baby can be overwhelming. Lack of sleep, constant demands of caregiving, and the never-ending laundry are just some of the things that can make parents feel stressed.
6 life hacks to unload the stress of your baby!
After knowing all of that, it is surprising to know that Faiza, a young working mother at TBS Studio with a four-month-old baby, always seems very chilled out and active throughout the working hours. In order to help our cherished young women who are fighting to maintain a balance between work and personal life while simultaneously raising a child, we wanted to learn how she manages the stress, emotional drain, and physical tiredness like a champion.
Don’t worry, we saved you the trouble of asking Faiza the right questions!

Here are the 6 must-try tips that she shared with us!
Raising a baby
  • Share the load with your support system

Having a baby can be isolating, so don't be afraid to ask for help from family and friends. A support system can make a huge difference in managing the stress of taking care of a baby. You can ask a friend to watch your baby while you run errands or ask a family member to help with cooking and cleaning. Utilize the resources available to you, whether it be a grandparent, a nanny, or a babysitting co-op.
The next best thing that you can do as a young mother is to connect with other mothers around you. Joining a support group or connecting with other mothers who understand the challenges of motherhood can provide a sense of belongingness and support, which can help reduce feelings of isolation and stress.
  • Organizing is a journey, not a destination
A cluttered and disorganized home can add to the stress of taking care of a baby. Invest in some baby-specific storage solutions, like a diaper caddy or a portable changing pad, to keep everything you need in one place. Make a list of things that you need to do daily, weekly, and monthly, and try to stick to it. Prioritize the essential tasks and delegate the non-essential ones.
Having a routine can help you and your baby feel more in control and less stressed. Try to establish a consistent schedule for feeding, sleeping, and playtime. Having a routine can help your baby feel more secure, and it can also help you plan your day better. If you buy TBS cot beds and cradles, it can increase the chances of your baby getting a good 8-hour sleep during the night, which can allow you the rest you need.

  • Be a tech-savvy mom

Technology can be a great tool for parents. There are plenty of apps and websites that can help you keep track of your baby's schedule, monitor their development, and even find other parents to connect with. Utilize these resources to make your life easier. Apps like Baby Tracker can help you keep track of your baby's feedings, diaper changes, and sleep patterns, while social media groups can provide a sense of community and support.
  • Mindfulness is the key to bring peace to your mind
It can be easy to get caught up in the chaos of caring for a baby, but practicing mindfulness can help you stay present and enjoy the little moments. The technique of mindfulness is therapeutic, and it is one of the first stress-releasing tips a therapist will recommend. It is the art of being aware of your surroundings and building a touch to be able to feel everything.

Try taking a few deep breaths and focusing on the sensation of your baby's skin against your own. Activities like creating a gratitude list (to improve well-being), mindful driving (to focus on the texture of the road and the weight of the car), and single tasking (to fully focus on whatever you are working on) can help reduce stress and improve sleep.

You can use this special tip for life to get relief from temporary bouts of anxiety and depression, which are very common during the postpartum period.
  • Sweat your stress out

You may not feel up to it every day, but working the stress out can really clear your head. Exercise has been shown to release endorphins, also known as "feel-good" chemicals, in the brain, which can help reduce stress and improve mood. For young mothers who may be experiencing increased stress due to the demands of caring for a new child, incorporating regular exercise into their daily routine can provide a valuable outlet for managing stress and promoting overall health and well-being. You can also join your nearby mothers’ group workout session to keep yourself motivated. Although hitting the gym isn’t always possible for young mothers, you can still work in other ways. Try decorating your nursery and giving a theme to your baby’s room. You can also shop for cute baby themes at TBS and give your baby the “dream come true" nursery that they deserve.
  • Walk out of your 4 walls

If working out is difficult for you, then the next best thing that can be done is to get out of the house. It can be beneficial for young mothers to relieve stress for several reasons.
  • First, it can provide a change of scenery and a break from the monotony of daily routines, which can be particularly challenging when caring for a new child. This can help reduce feelings of isolation and cabin fever, which can contribute to stress and feelings of depression. This is also a good opportunity to enjoy some time in your social circle.
  • Second, getting out of the house allows you to interact with other adults and socialize, which can improve your mood and give you a sense of connection and support.
  • Thirdly, it can also provide an opportunity for self-care, such as attending a yoga class or meeting friends for coffee, which can be beneficial for mental and emotional well-being.
Making some time for yourself is imperative and can boost your personal relationships as you begin to give your all, no matter what you do.
  • Connect with nature:

Spending time outdoors in nature can help reduce stress and improve overall well-being.
  • First, being in nature can promote a sense of calm and tranquility, which can help reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. The sights and sounds of nature, such as birds singing, the rustling of leaves, or the sound of water, can have a soothing effect on the mind and body.
  • Second, spending time in nature can also provide a sense of perspective which can help reduce stress and promote overall well-being.
  • Thirdly, nature can be grounding and provide an escape from the demands of daily life.
  • Finally, engaging in activities such as hiking, gardening, or bird watching in nature can provide an opportunity for physical activity, which can also have positive effects on reducing stress.
Last words
Determination, dedication, warmth, and love are a few of the many elements that make a mother. Hardworking women like you can sacrifice anything to ensure the well-being of their beloved children and raise them to be gentle humans. Children come before anything, but remember that raising a baby does not mean forgetting every other aspect of your life. Afterall your baby grow into your reflection. So, keep yourself warm and stress free so that you baby can capture a cheerful essence from you.
