On Radio Boston today, a sleep-deprived Meghna Chakrabarti (who has a 7-month-old daughter) and I chat about why new mothers don't practice self-care very well, and what the long-term impact of this might be on families (not good)!
Moms — chime in here. Are you grabbing a quick soda for energy during the day when water might be a better option? Do you settle for your kids' leftover mac & cheese, instead of preparing a nice organic chicken salad for supper? When do you squeeze in time to exercise with a kid under one?
Will anyone with effective tips on better self-nurturing for new moms please speak up?
