Got a few!

Mine would be to set a good bedtime routine as soon as you can! as someone else said (sorry don't remember who it was) me and 'us' (you and partner) time is very important. No matter how much help you get with your LO, it is mummy and daddy that will be the most tired and carry the stress.. communicating well with your partner and appreciating each other makes you much better able to cope with the sometimes stressful times. Sometimes all you need is a laugh to make a bad situation not feel so bad!

That leads on to my second point, keep a sense of humour when things get tough or you feel you can't cope one day! It's not forever, those tired feelings pass as soon as you get into the swing of things.

Last one, make the most of it! time goes too quickly. I always thought my mum was being OTT when she said "time goes too quickly, what happened to my little girl". It's only since having Bethanie that I have found myself agreeing completely and wishing id enjoyed it with her more - don't get me wrong, I have really enjoyed her and still do.. but next time round, I will appreciate the time a LOT more!!

im not sure how to word this...but mine would be to never feel ashamed of the feelings you might have if you have PND, and to ask for help, accept help, and take medication if needed. And understand and believe your not a bad mother, but you have an illness.

Oh & also to ignore unhelpful comments from competitive parents

Example -
Competitive Parent - Does Maya sleep through yet?
Me - No
CP - Wow thats unusual, Blah blah slept through from day 1, you must be doing something wrong!!

CP - Hows the diet going?
Me - Awful
CP - Ohhh thats a shame, I lost my 4 stone pregnancy weight in a week. You should have more will power

Ive seriously had both of these converstaions!!
