Ask for help from friends and family. Let them do the laundry and the dishes. Cook up meals ahead of time that can be frozen for later use. When baby is sleeping take a shower and a nap. At night read a book in a bubble bath to unwind. If hubby is home let him help with housework and taking care of baby. Men do things differently than we women do so let him do things his way and don't rush to take over.
