When you, obviously, have your first, you tend to read lots of books, magazines, watch lots of television programs telling you what you should be doing in those first few months--whether they should be sleeping, when they should be eating, when they should be feeding, etc. And, you know, the best thing to do is not take it literally. Take it with a pinch of salt and just go with the flow. Each child is individual. They will do what they want, when they want. And if you stress too much about timings, then you will stress yourself out.
And having a newborn takes so much time up, you'd be surprised. And when you get time to yourself, you just need to rest. Conserve your energy and have a sleep. Don't get up hoovering or start washing. Just leave it to the husband, ideally, or friends or family. And, you know, after six months then start doing the cleaning again.
So, one of the biggest tips I was given which was really useful was to have muslins every other place, big sort of squares of white material. And they're so handy because babies make mess. Don't they? Yeah, lots of mess.My tip for someone in the last few months of pregnancy would be to read up as much as you can about breastfeeding and to find out what can go wrong or how it works and what you can do. Because it doesn't always go according to plan. And it's good to know where to go for help if you need it. And another tip would be to keep nappies and wipes and muslins upstairs and downstairs so that you've got them all both places and you don't keep having to run upstairs and downstairs all the time.
Do your grocery shopping online because it's a lot less stressful than wondering around the supermarket with a newborn baby. And they'll get it delivered which is a lot easier than wondering around with the bags. It's very heavy.
Remember to drink plenty of water when you're breastfeeding. This is really important to increase your milk supply. Another useful tip is to have plenty of snacks by the bed as that helps to keep your energy levels up.
If you're in a relationship, make sure you make the most of the time that you have together because once the baby comes, your feet won't touch the ground, literally. Sleep when baby sleeps. And accept the offer of help if anyone wants to help you out. And don't be frightened to let people babysit for you. I know it's difficult the first time. It was for me. But always accept the help.
One of the things that really saved my life in the first couple of weeks of Fred being around was buying a second clothes area. I don't have a tumble dryer. I have an awful lot of washing. You can't imagine how much washing babies make you do until you have one. So, a second clothes area. If you don't have a tumble dryer, I think it'll absolutely save your life.
I definitely also recommend making sure that you take it really easy in the first couple of weeks after the birth. Whether it's a natural birth or a caesarian like I had, it definitely takes it out of you. So, you just have to sit back and make the most of your time with your little one. What I would say really helped was getting friends and family to bring over food, so prepared meals, not just cake, for when they come over. And even get them to do the washing up too afterwards, absolute lifesaver.
