Buy plenty of washing powder! Get one of them massive 90 wash boxes if possible.

Well on a personal note I would say get your rest in the hospital, I had the baby with me 24/7 and he didn't sleep this made recovering very hard. You are not a bad mom if baby goes to the nursery for a few hours.

Don't let the baby sleep on you, or in your bed (unless you actually choose co-sleeping) as this is a very hard habit to break, and you will have no time without a baby on you.

MOST IMPORTANTLY:
Remember from day 1 you are your babies tour guide to the world, make it warm and loving and interesting for him. Smile, sing, talk to him and hold him close.

I would say as a new Mom the best advice is to try not to play catch up with cleaning when you have a chance to rest. I ran around cleaning, trying to be "supermom". But, I did not enjoy any of the first few weeks my body just was so sleepy. I then took advice from the RN and slept when he did and felt like a whole new woman! The house was a bit more messy but, I enjoyed the baby more being awake.
