Every stage of parenting is amazing. But the baby stage is one of the best and often the one that we forget to enjoy. We’re stressed. We’re sleepy. We think we’re doing everything wrong and screwing up our babies. But the truth is, we’re not.
So, to the mum I was when my kids were still in nappies, here’s what you needed to know back then. Sorry, this advice is four years too late …
1. Lack of sleep won't kill you
While it may seem impossible, your baby will eventually sleep through the night. And one day you will look back at all of those frustrating evenings, those 2am feeds, those all-night cuddles and, amazingly enough, you will miss them.
