Today's #TuesdayTip - Maintain routines as much as possible. This is such an important piece of advice not only for your physical day-to-day activities, but your mental health as well. Whether that routine is becoming involved with your baby’s care in the NICU (feeding, kangaroo care, etc.) or creating routines at home, routines are commonly known to help reduce levels of anxiety and create a sense of purpose. It's also key for helping other children at home know what to expect and when. Do you have a routine? Share it with us! Read more about caring for your mental health in the NICU in the #NICUBasics section of our 📚 Educational Resources, found in your menu.
