Re: Do you have someone stay with you after the birth?

My mom stayed with me for 2 weeks. I thought it might be difficult, but she was a real blessing. Usually we tussle after 3 days, but I was so tired and she was so helpful! She cooked and did dishes and every afternoon rocked the baby for a few hours so I could sleep.

My MIL on the other hand, cannot cook a thing (a trait she passed to my DH!) but at least she was an extra pair of hands. She held the baby while I cooked. That was something at least. We only had her here for 5 days when the baby was 5 weeks old so we were already at least in a routine.
