I am lucky that 3 close friends are also on mat leave at the moment so I see them a couple of times a week. Other days I go for a walk in the park, potter around the shops. Other days I see friends who don't have babies (I am a nurse as are lots of friends so they do shift work). MIL looks after LO once a week so I can have some me time. erm....doesn't sound like much but I am never sat down, I do wonder how I will fit work in
I went to a baby group straight away when LO was born. There were lots of mom's there with newborns and it was great to get out just once a week. The rest of the time I spent trying to get some sleep and being glued to my sofa breastfeeding all day long. It was only from about 10 weeks that I started to be able to do more normal things like meet friends for an hour or so or nip to the shop for milk.
A 1 week old, nothing, really nothing. I fed willow, let her sleep on me, expressed milk for her, tried to get to have a wee at some point during the day, and repeat...
Since she's been a bit less "sleep between every feed" and sttn:
Monday - baby club
Tuesday - baby massage
Wednesday - baby club
Thursday - baby sensory
Friday/Saturday/Sunday- see family, do Tescos shopping.
Each activity is half a day, then the other half the day we go out for a walk or do some housework. Otherwise the rest of my day is spent trying to get her down for a nap, washing up, feeding and changing then bath and bed!
