I don't agree with tclw at all. I brought home a new puppy when my son was only a few days old. It was extra work for me, but I wouldn't have change a thing. My son and the pup have grown up together, it's been a lot of fun. There were times when I wanted pull my hair out, but it was worth it in the end.
If you think you can keep up with a new baby and with a new pup, then go for it. We don't know how much you can personally handle. If you think it would be too much to deal with, then don't do it. Puppies are a lot of work, but it was nothing I couldn't handle with being a new mom at the same time. Also, I am a single mom so I had no help at all.
