Top 10 Mum Tips

It is coming to that time in my pregnancy when I have started to really think about what it will take to transition from a family of 3 to a family of 4. I am beyond excited but, my lord and I also apprehensive and somewhat anxious.  

I walked into motherhood with what I feel was a pretty open and flexible idea of what I was to expect. Sure things didn't go to plan in those early days (that is a whole different story) but since then I feel as if I have been able to find my feet and most days, whilst crazy and exhausting have been pretty good. There is no denying its not easy but its kind of what I expected. 

Now, expecting baby number 2 is a whole different situation. It's been primarily E and I for the last 2 years. Daddy goes into work most days, I am a SAHM and work busily around the property and running Cache Cache. E and I have lots of great friends who we try and visit regularly but really, we have become a bit of a duo. 

How is it going to go when I have a little baby who needs all my attention? To be honest - who knows.....and I am scared, I have mum guilt kicking my butt because I don't want E to feel like I am neglecting her and focusing on her new sister. I want to be able to give baby Pea the same attention that I gave her sister but I know that's not going to happen. It's just a whirlwind of emotion. 

Day 5 of being a new mum. We had guests and I just had to go have a sleep. Do what you need to do!

Anyway - I thought the time had come to put a call out to all my amazing followers, friends and family and see what amazing and useful tips and tricks they had. 

So here goes - if you're a first time mum or a 5th time mum, I feel like some or all of these little tips will be super useful. 

Here are the top 10 tips that I feel can help us all!

  1. “If it’s not a problem for you, then it’s not a problem; but if it is a problem for you then you can absolutely do something about it” - this goes for everything - sleeping, eating, feeding. If you feel like your community nurse/GP/pediatrician isn’t listening or meeting your needs then you can absolutely find a practitioner who does.
  2. Relax and take all the time you want snuggling and enjoying your baby. They’re only babies for such a very short time. Being a mum isn't about having a super tidy house or having an amazing dinner each night. Enjoy the little moments with your small humans.
  3. Don't be overwhelmed by people giving you instructions [helpful or not]. This is your baby and short of anything toxic or murderous, your baby will survive.
  4. Sleep whenever you can (see tip 3)
  5. Try and take 10 minutes each day to just focus on you - have a quick shower or a hot cuppa. 
  6. Get outdoors - fresh air can make even the hardest days better and a change of scenery can make all the difference to everyone.
  7. Always have an emergency stash of clothes/nappies/wipes in the car. You never know when you'll need them.
  8. If someone you love offers to help, accept it. Even if its just a cup of tea. And don't feel like you need to entertain. If they're offering its because they don't care if you sit on the sofa in your PJs all day. 
  9. It’s ok to feel overwhelmed and have no idea what you are doing.....we all struggle some days and that is 100% normal. 
  10. Your best is good enough! Trust yourself. 

Now that's enough from me - for more amazing tips head to my instagram and have a read through what some other amazing ladies recommend.
