So you’re just about to have a baby! Everyone in the world will have hints and tips for you on what to do with the baby. But here are some practical survival tips, especially for the first-time mum!
1.Bulk buy chocolate, crisps, diet coke(whatever it is you drink) and biscuits before the birth. The likely hood is that you are going to be in the house for a few days after the birth. If you want to binge eat chocolate buttons, you deserve to without justification of this to anyone else. So have supplies ready.
2. Buy Badedas Bubble Bath for yourself and get in the bath! I always thought this was cheap crap given by Granny’s at Christmas, but it is actually pretty good for helping your body recover from the joys of childbirth! Horse Chestnut Power!
3. Cut out the arguments before they start about where the baby is going to sleep by buying a Next to Me crib in advance. You’ll get sleep and also retain some of your own bed. BONUS!
4. Buy frozen food or ask people to bring food for you when they visit. There is not a chance you will want to cook!
5. Tell yourself that you would like to breastfeed, but don’t beat yourself up if you find it too hard and simply can’t do it. As cliche as it sounds, fed is best!
