    I'm on my 3rd and all I can say is I chilled out more with each child and they reap the benefits. DD is so high strung and I am sure we contributed to it. Some things just do not matter!

    I will be doing everything different. Ds2 is 8 months and I still have not figured out how to follow my instincts.
    I will also set up a nursery before bub is born. I didn't get one the first 2 times.

    Mine are 4 and 6 now and its hard to take stock now and think of tjings id change cos I think they are turning out ok. But I know I rushed alot and didnt really embrace the baby stage I was always waiting for the next mile stone saying to myself it will get better when they, talk, sleep through, give uo the dummy, eat solids ect. So I rushed through the stages iykwim. This time I think I just enjoy it more and take it as it comes. Life is different for us this time and we are not on a clock as far as work or employment is concerned so I wont be putting her in daycare as early as I did my other 2 either, at least not full time.

    Many things, starting with not agreeing to be induced unnecessarily. This led to a ton of issues for me unfortunately.

    I would try and get day sleeps sorted from an early age.

    Not stress so much about breastfeeding.

    If it works it works, and more importantly, if baby is happy, I will, if not, I won't.

    After thinking long and hard about my response, I've decided i would not do anything different. Every baby is different and I would parent accordingly.

    Raising a child is a bloody tough job and I think all mothers are too quick to judge themselves and others. There is no point regretting any decisions you have made, who really knows if it would of made a positive difference?

    As long as you love your child and you have their best interests at heart, you are doing a fantastic job!!!

    This exactly!! I will probably do heaps of stuff differently but not as a conscious decision but because having two kids is different from having one and that I am more experienced and confident as a mummy now.

    I don't regret decisions but 3 babies in I've certainly learnt a few things that will definitely influence the decisions I make regarding our third. It's not about judgement it's about learning.

    Don't tip toe around the house though that's inevitable when I'll have a toddler next time.

    I'm only a few weeks in to parenthood but I would ask more questions of the doctors/paed before discharge, tell annoying midwives to sod off when they interfered with my bf and buy less toys/stuff!

    I did have an OT question - for those with babies who have a tongue tie did you get it snipped because it affected feeding? My bubs has a bad tt but it isn't affecting feeding... Not sure if we should snip it or not?!? PM me if you want
