POSTPARTUM LYING-IN PLAN

Earth Mama« Postpartum Lying-in Plan

 

Next, it's time for Lying-In.

Traditionally, "Lying-In" is the period of time for a postpartum mama to bond with her newborn. During that time, you're establishing a connection that builds on the imprinting that happens in the first few moments after birth. You're getting to know every crease, dimple and sweet scent of your brand-new baby - and that baby is getting to know you, too.
