Health Tip: Being Healthy Parents

(HealthDay News) -- While having a baby provides many wonderful experiences, it also adds stress to a relationship.

The American Academy of Family Physicians suggests how to keep your relationship strong once baby joins the family:

  • Find time to spend together, as well as individual alone time for each of you.

  • Schedule date nights at least every other week, if possible.

  • Take time to talk to each other about everything you're feeling, both the good and the bad.

  • Disagreements are to be expected, but make sure you handle them respectfully and fairly.

  • Listen to each other, and make up after disagreements.
