The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these guidelines to help new parents manage visitors:
- Before you come home, create a visitor's schedule, so loved ones know preferred times to visit.
- Welcome offers to help, but track visitors on your calendar.
- Limit the number of guests, and make sure your family is your top priority.
- Explain to loved ones that you will welcome more visitors once the family has had time to adjust.
