We have a new baby in the family! My brother became a father a little over three weeks ago when he and his partner had a little girl. A new baby in the family has made me think back to when the boys were tiny and all the pieces of advice I was given as a new mother. Some of it wasn't very helpful and some of it was! Below are some tips for mums with newborns from mums I know and some which I have gathered along my parenting journey.
I wish I had been told all of these when I was expecting or just after I had Monkey. It would have made my life a lot less stressful and I wouldn't have tried to live up to other expectations
Thanks to all those who have helped with their tips and advice.
