Best baby tip

Hi Girls

Just wanted to know what everyones Best Baby Tip is?

Mine would be: In the first few weeks after bringing bub home, forget all about housework and take all offers of help!

Definitely agree with that! They are so tiny for such a short time and then it seems like no time at all and it's school uniforms all round!

Also try to remember that they are just babies- they do what comes naturally and it isnt done to aggravate or annoy.

I agree with everything said. The housework and chores are not nearly as important as those moments when your lo just gives you a snuggly cuddle and a sloppy kiss. No amount of vacuuming could ever top that!

Someone gave me a little card with a poem on it when Matthew was born

'Cleaning and dusting can wait 'til tomorrow
For babies grow up, I've learned to my sorrow.
So go away cobwebs, dust, go to sleep,
I'm rocking my baby, and babies don't keep.'

I remember it and show anyone who arrives at my door when the house is in a very messy state (which is all the time since 12th October...)

Yep, Oct 12th so he shares your birthday! It's my mum's birthday on Oct 12th too. She was so shocked when I phoned her from hospital after he was born and asked her how she'd like a wee grandson for a birthday present!! (I hadn't told her I was going in)
