Cupid’s Advice: 

While welcoming a baby into the world is an amazing experience, it comes with a significant workload as well. Making compromises are key in any relationship, especially when it comes to taking care of another life. Cupid has some advice:

1. Communicate: One of the most important aspects of a compromise is understanding one another’s needs and concerns. Understanding requires listening. Arrange a time where the two of you can sit down and discuss how you are feeling. Each take a turn speaking and listening.

2. Agree on the roles you’ll each perform: List out all the daily activities that are required for your child’s care, from feeding and laundry, to running to the store for more formula. Decide together what tasks you should each be responsible for so the workload can be divided.

3. Be flexible: Part of being able to compromise is being flexible. You may not love having to change all the diapers, but if your partner can’t stand it and much rather take on bath time and midnight feedings, consider it an even deal.
