A midwife has issued some advice for new parents William and Kate.
Now that the baby is finally here, Trish Lyall, a senior midwife at the South London Healthcare Trust, has come up with some tips to help the couple cope with their new arrival.
Trish’s advice is:
- Try to enjoy the baby. Things can be really stressful for first time parents and if they are not careful they can miss the first few days with the baby. They need to remember to relax and enjoy the time with the baby.
-Sleep when the baby is sleeping. Babies have a habit of sleeping during the day so it is important that you try to get some sleep when they are.
-Be together as a family. The royal couple are going to have to cope with an extra person in their family. The most important thing is that they all spend time together bonding.
-Eat healthy. This is particularly important if Kate is breast feeding. She needs a healthy diet so that she is able to feed the baby regularly.
-Pace the visitors. It is always nice to have visitors, but things can get very hectic if there are too many people around at the same time.
