Labor and delivery is GO, GO, GO and then suddenly – it’s quiet. The baby is here, the nurses and doctors have left the room, and all that’s left is the time you have to bond as a new family. There should be three things after delivery: food, snuggles, and naps. Not necessarily in that order! (But food first, always food first.) Having a baby is emotionally and physically draining, especially if you’ve been up all night. Baby is exhausted from, you know, being born. Mom is exhausted from, oh we don’t know, HAVING A BABY. And dad is exhausted from the emotional roller coaster he just went on. So naps are needed.
