The best person that you can rely on for help is Daddy. My husband reminds me all the time that he is here to help. As a mother you can often think that it is up to you alone to take care of your child, well it is not. It took two people to make a baby and it takes two people to raise a baby. You can get over whelmed easily. You can always ask them to get you a bottle, take the baby, or even change a diaper.
My husband is amazing. Michael and I often refer to ourselves as Team Stephens and parenting has made that team even stronger. As I write this he is feeding and burping Benjamin. He is great about taking Benjamin when I ask and when he knows that I need a break.
Not everyone has another person by their side to help them. If you are fortunate enough to have someone there to help you, let them.
