Congratulations on your new bub and new house! What an exciting time for you
I live in the country too and have found it really hard/stressful. Your friends tend to become your family uo here so of course they all want to see the baby. I ended up saying "if you want to come over, come at this time" so everyone could come at once and we got everyone over and done with in an hour.
Weve just sent our last family members off home. They each stayed for four nights. My mum and dad were great as they cooked dinner, did the washing up, changed nappies, walked the dogs etc. DFa family did nothing and i found it so hard i spent the entire time crying i was so stressed. So my advice...tell them they are welcome to come but that you wont be able to wait on them, that theyll have to be pretty much self-sufficient. Theyve been parents before...theyll understand.
Its all about setting boundaries. If they cant understand that then they clearly arent very good friends.
Good luck xxx
