Manage visitors after bringing home baby

(HealthDay News) -- Family and friends love to welcome a new baby home and offer their help. But new parents should establish rules as they settle into their routines.

Consider these guidelines to help new parents manage visitors:

  • Before you come home, create a visitor's schedule, so loved ones know preferred times to visit.
  • Welcome offers to help, but track visitors on your calendar.
  • Limit the number of guests, and make sure your family is your top priority.
  • Explain to loved ones that you will welcome more visitors once the family has had time to adjust.
