You can also use chalk on the pegs to keep them from slipping if you don’t have some kind of peg compound. Another reason for slipping is that the pegs aren’t properly fitted for the peg holes. If it’s really bad, you may need to have a luthier set the instrument up for you. And as Mariko said, new strings need some time to break in so you’ll have to tune them quite a bit for a few days.
