    These are the biggest lessons I've learned as a first time mum of a 6 week old, that I did not know previously:

    -babies like to be held... A LOT. So invest in a sling or be prepared to not have the use of your hands... ever.

    -newborn babies nurse A LOT. Be prepared to give up much of your day and night just breastfeeding. It's really exhausting.

    -you really won't have time to keep the house as spotless as you used to. Learn to ignore the mess for a while. (this has been very hard for me!)

    -that man that you have always growled at for his terrible housekeeping skills and his inability to even cook one meal, may turn out to be a wonderful father who will walk a screaming baby up and down the hallway, softly singing her lullabies until his arms and back ache and the baby is finally asleep.

    -your body is different after having a baby. Aside from the physical differences (weight gain, c section scar, stretch marks etc), it just feels different too... like looking in the mirror you will always remember that big bulge you had that carried your child. For me, it's like my body has served its great purpose.

    -your whole state of mind shifts. You are no longer number one.

    -if you have overbearing family, learn to draw the line.

    Wish I knew how to latch off when breastfeeding. I used to yank it out not knowing any better and got blisters on my nipples! Not nice... Cruising now thankfully...

    I have been thinking about this thread for ages!!!! Lol!

    Two more things I thought of:

    *Buy the singlet onesies that clip under the bum. Especially if you are putting them under clothing (DS was a winter bub, singlet then onesie was put on). there is nothing more annoying that your babies singlet creeping all the way up its back, the ones that clip under the bum wont do that.

    *there is no set time for how long breastfeeding takes, my DS was a super sucker. Like 5-15minute feeds each time!
