Hi ladies. So I’m in a predicament. We live in England our family in Scotland. We are not sure how much help we will need in the first days/weeks. My hubby and I will be off together for 8 weeks when baby is born. My dilemmas are;
1. Will I need my mum to stay with us to help?
2. If mum does stay will 1,2 or 3 + weeks be best?
3. What about other family visitors? Do they wait til after my mum has stayed and they slot in to the spare bedroom ?
4. Will I be completely overwhelmed and need visitors or just want to me on our own?? I keep thinking the latter 🥴
I am planning to breast feed and we only have one spare room as the other is the nursery. We have there sets of parents to consider and several siblings between us.
I may be over thinking things but I am just getting myself in a stress about this!! Any advice appreciated from already parents or soon to be mums who have actually thought this through 💭
Thank you xxx
