With a new baby, be flexible in your time and commitments as much as you can be. For instance, if you run for exercise every night, maybe it's time to start running first thing in the morning when baby is regularly sleeping and leave your night free for looking after the baby, cooking the dinner, doing other chores, or ensuring that you get to bed early in order to deal with the middle of the night baby activities. Be prepared to have your schedule regularly challenged and changed.
