    Try to establish a night time routine as early as possible. It can be as simple as a bath, story and lullaby as long as it gives your baby a cue that its time for sleep. (They won’t stay asleep but it’s a start and it’ll stop you from going loopy :))

    Before your new arrival arrives, cook and freeze meals in portions so that all you need to do is lift it out the freezer and heat up rather than having to cook from scratch. Means you save time but still get proper meals for the first few weeks.

    before you go shopping have a meal- it’s proven that when we’re not hungry we tend to buy less sweets and unhealthy snacks x

    When preparing to have a baby don’t go over board buying clothes a few unisex baby grows and hats is all that is needed, Prepare and stock your nursery with nappy’s wipes and muslin cloths are a must. And relax before having your baby, there will be no relaxing for the next 18 years heehee (Hannah Bee)

    Try and stick to your routines, same bathing time, same bed time, same feeding times, it will make your life much easier when you know you have a few hours break inbetween things – that if your baby wants to follow a routine, my 2nd didnt 😉

    I have set routines in place for my son at an early age and it works if you stick to your guns and don’t vary them too often!

    Teach your toddlers to help you with chores as soon as they’re old enough, so when they are older being asked to tidy their room or put something in the bin isn’t a major trauma for them

    Don’t be tempted into buying expensive baby gadgets and things for a new baby, you’ll be amazed how little a baby really needs to be comfortable and happy. With my first baby We had a bottle warmer that hardly got used, as well as insulated bottle carriers, too many clothes for baby to wear before they grew out of them, cute baby towels that were only big enough for a couple of weeks use and lots of other stuff that turned out to be unnecessary.

    My best tip is to always have some healthy snacks in the car, you never know when you can get stuck in traffic and a grumpy hungry toddler in traffic is never fun. A little snack always helps the situation

    Work your KIT days before going back to work – they make you so much more confident about the impending return (plus you get much needed money!)

    Buy a pack of nappies or wipes every week of your pregnancy…by the time you give birth you’ll be well stocked & won’t need to leave the house until you’re ready!
