If you feel overwhelmed by everything you have to do to prepare for being a mom, just relax and breathe. There's an old saying: "Inch by inch, life's a cinch. Yard by yard, life is hard." Translation: the easiest way to prepare for the arrival of a new baby is in steps, month by month. Then you won't feel so overwhelmed.
Follow our New Mom Organizer checklists each month, and once you reach your due date, you'll be free to devote all your energy to loving your new baby, instead of sweating over details.
