There are various reasons due to which people get stressed but amongst them the major one is the changes that occur in our lives. People who don't suffer from stress are the ones who are habitual of keeping up with the changes life brings. Therefore, if you want to deal with stress effectively then you should be able to cope with the changes too. Basically, stress is caused by the way you retaliate towards a change and the way you cope with it.
Having a new born baby is one major change. You get a new responsibility in your life and in the initial months you are on your feet twenty four hours. This is however, a major change in every woman's life and it totally changes up the way you lived earlier. You are not only happy about this change but at the same time you feel responsible too to fulfill every need of your child. You are always conscious about what the baby is doing and you don't want to miss any moment of it. All this adds up to causing stress but if you handle it properly and manage all of this in a nice manageable manner you can avoid getting stressed out. The best way is to create a schedule and a set of rules and then train your child accordingly to avoid changes on daily basis. Babies can easily pick up habits if they are taught them since childhood. This is the reason why it is important to teach the baby the important things of life right from the beginning so that he or she develops a habit of it. Things like going to bed and waking up are two major areas you should work on.
Developing these habits right from the beginning is essential as this is the time when the baby can adopt these habits properly and if you use the right techniques he won't even be bothered with it. Gradually these habits will prove to be helpful for them in the long run. It is important for every parent to make a schedule and set proper timings of feeding the child, putting him to sleep, etc. because this will bring a schedule in our life too which would save you from being unnecessarily stressed out and having sleepless nights, etc. If you don't have a schedule it can end up troublesome for you resulting in giving you stress and also for the baby because he or she will develop the same irregular routines.
In a nutshell, it is important and good for both - you and the baby to have proper schedules. In this way you won't suffer from stress and will have a happy and balanced life. Regular schedules have an important part in making your life happy and stress free.
It is also good to try to keep yourself busy and make your schedule as stress free as possible. It is always hard to adapt to new things but is very possible. It's just a matter of making yourself do what needs to done.
