Personally? I would de-prioritise washing those cloth nappies. With a newborn, absorbency isn't your big issue, and they'll get their three washes soon enough. From experience.

Yes, you need to relax. This may be one of the few weeks left that you get to have some "you" time. Take advantage of it!! Get your nails done, etc. Enjoy this time little momma!
