Sleep when baby sleeps and trust your own instincts.

Be willing to ask for help if you need it, but also don't be afraid to set limits and say no if you need time/space.

Sleep when baby sleeps and take time out for yourself.

Let your SO hold the baby. I never let my husband hold my daughter and now I can't even go get a glass of water without. He can come and go as he pleases but not me. I haven't gone anywhere without my daughter since she was born. I need a break. Lol

Don't turn everything into a battle. (Most) milestones are individual and your baby will reach them when he/she is ready.

All a baby really needs is love. Everything else is just icing and won't ruin the cake, so to speak. 8)
