Back to school can be quite stressful for you as you child has grown up of school age
but it could be more annoyed when you have a newly born baby in the house. I work full time since the birth of my newborn baby. For me, it was not an easy task to go for study in the morning, when he was newly born and slept much in the day. It was hard for me to start with a routine initially as you were easily distracted but fterward, you can manage the swing of things that happen in starting days.
I always try to make a flexible schedule for myself during the week. But still, I found
myself so lucky to live really close to my in-laws. They helped me, whenever I have needed any help and also even when I have to go outside for taking online classes. Do you have in-laws with that level of care? Finally, you don't need to wait until the last minute or ongoing time to do things as you can never even know what will come up next with a newly born baby. There are a lot of things that you can do and your family did not get annoyed during school years. Here are some tips for parents who have a newborn or a school-age child:


  • Schedule Your Rest According to Schedule of Your Newborn

When you put your kids in bed and then get in the bed too. Do not waste your time in watching TV, because you may have to get up in the night for feeding baby. When you get your baby feed at night, just get back to sleep again. If you don’t take proper rest you may have to resent with your spouse.

  • Organize Your Work

Organizing time is one of the hardest things that you have to manage with a newly born baby because during school years you have to get clothes of your children. If you organize it, as each child has their own drawer for clothes then, it can be easy to find things and save your time.

  • Pack Lunch Boxes in Night

When daddy is holding the baby, you should have time to pack lunch boxes of children before you get slept. Refrigerate lunch boxes; this schedule will help you in managing your time.

  • Check Stock on Weekends

In weekends day you have time to check your stock that your family needs during the whole week. Like laundry and availability of snacks because children need healthy food after they came back from school.

  • Healthy Food After School

Try to make healthy foods for dinner and lunch because healthy nutrition for kids helps them to improve their results.

  • Always Give Your Children A Positive Response

Try to be positive, even when you have lack of sleep or feeling annoyed. Just make sure that they are going to school with a pleasant and beautiful experience. Just try to keep things steady as you have to go in those back to school days as back to school time is back for you.

  • Fresh indoor air

Indoor fresh air plays very important role in healthy life. Get your duct cleaned regularly to get indoor air dust free. Clean air leads you with no allergies and better night sleep. Help you wake up early.
