New moms will agree that taking a break from the riggers of early motherhood can be a good thing. Once baby is sleeping through night, that may be a good time to consider a quick night away, or even a weekend. Some great ideas to look into include a local spa, Bed and Breakfast, or even a girls night out.

Getting Ready For A Break
Getting ready for that perfect little mini vacation means that both baby and mommy need to be ready. One of the best indicators of whether or not the baby is ready is by analyzing their sleep pattern. If baby can get a full eight hours, then Daddy, a baby sitter, or another relative will be up for the challenge of caretaker for a night.
Show the person that will be caring for your baby how to properly bath, change, and feed the baby, so that you have complete peace of mind while away. If the baby has any health concerns, this is a good time to address all issues that may arise. If your baby is still breast feeding, make sure to leave enough pumped milk behind so that there is a fresh supply.
After all of the major issues have been discussed, it is now time to take that break that you surely deserve. While you are away try to focus on relaxing and engaging with other adults. This will go a long way to helping you rejuvenate and get ready to dive back in to being a new mom.
