    Check for a tongue/lip tie immediately after birth so I never have to buy formula, babywear from birth, stress less and deliver naturally.

    Not stand next to the cot patting a mattress while the baby cries because "if they don't self settle they'll never sleep through". Absolute rubbish. Thankfully I realised after a few attempts it wasn't working for us and went to cuddling to sleep and she sleeps through fine. Next bubba is cuddled to sleep guilt free.

    I will stop sterilising sooner.

    I will not worry about when I last fed her, I will feed her when she wants it.

    I will formula feed once home from hospital. That is all. I struggle with bf and kept it up for 6mths with my first two. I will not put myself thru that ever again.

    I'm doing everything with DD that I wanted to do differently from my first time around with DS (DD is 23 months, DS is 6). If I was to have a 3rd I can't actually think of anything I'd do differently

    The only thing I'd change with a 2nd baby would be to express and freeze breast milk in the early days whilst it's plentiful. I don't have any other regrets. I co slept, I slept her on her belly coz that's what she preferred, I RF her car seat until 13 months old, I cuddled/fed her to sleep. My DD was priority over housework and to this day (she's 2), she loves spending time with me but can also happily amuse herself. I've loved watching her grow everyday for 25 months and as a single mother for 12 of those, I feel like I've done a damn good job. My favorite quote is "the most important gift you can give your child, is your time" and I feel that's exactly what I've done .

    Honestly nothing really. I do wish things were different and my dd was born without heart problems. ... But I wouldn't change much.
    I bought lots of cute clothes. .. she wore them all and I had fun dressing her up (even in hospital)
    I bought lots of baby crap.. still use most of it!
    I tried my best with bfing and expressing... next time I would just try my best again.
    I enjoyed cuddles and snuggles. I slept when I could (still do)

    There were hard times. .. but I'm happy with everything I've done (though not always perfect) I don't think I would change much. That said.. I'm not having anymore!!

    Precisely everything here. Oh and if tt/lt diagnosed, i will be demanding it be cut immediately and will not allow myself to be fobbed off. I will advocate for my baby more in hospital.

    I will be much kinder to myself and will not let pnd get a hold next time.
