  • I do quilting, but I'm not sure how easy that would be for you while you're taking care of a new baby. It is quiet, though, if you do it by hand :) My doc says that hobbies like that(or crocheting, knitting, etc) help to lower your blood pressure and stress levels. How about making collages? I enjoy that as well. Crochet is fairly easy to pick up, and you can usually just put it down whenever and pick it back up and start again.

  • Photography! Don't tell me you don't want to take a million pics of the little one :) I have taken on cooking. I never had anyone to teach me how so I started to teach myself. Making home made baby food and large scale dinners for my husband and I. Both I find very practical and fun.

  • Cooking, sketching, crocheting. I would recommend trying a few different things and seeing what you enjoy.

  • With a new baby I have to suggest scrapbooking - you are going to have so many wonderful memories that you will want to add to your books.
