Julie Green was "deep in the throes of postpartum depression" when she made a list of everything she thought would make her feel better. From daily showers and walks outside to weekly knitting and baking sessions, her final list included boxes she should check off to ensure she was working her way to recovery. She is now offering a similar service to other women combating the condition. Fill out her form with things that make you happy and she will email you a checklist that can be printed out as often as needed. Think of it as one mom's way of making a difference.
The lack of me time can take its toll on a mother. One woman who's "been there and done that" came up with Up Up Creative's feel good lists ($16) that include everything a new mother needs to put her back on track.
