Tip: bubble wrap for new moms

New mom tip: pop stress away

The teeny tiny bubble wrap is perfect as a physical outlet for moms trying not to scream at their kids. (Confession: I have done this dozens of times)

This is how it works:

  1. Get frustrated or annoyed to the point of wanting to scream.
  2. Gently, set baby in crib or other safe place.
  3. Walk over to the desk with the little bubble wrap.
  4. Squeeze and pop until everything is funny again.

I learned this little trick from a post-partum stress class, so it must be true, right? Ripping tissues should also work but won’t have that satisfying snap-snap sound.
