    If next bub is breech I will be pushing for a natural birth. I will be pushing for a vbac. I will pump and freeze milk from the beginning. Start a bedtime routine from a younger age. Follow their lead on when/where/how they'd like to sleep instead of stressing. Not feel guilty for cosleeping if that's what we end up doing.

    I honestly doubt I'd do anything differently. Maybe ask for more help with certain things.

    I thought of another one. I'm not going to focus so much on time. How long between feeds, how long he/she sleeps etc. Dd is a crap sleeper and at 4 months I have finally realised I feel a lot better if I just accept whatever sleep she has ans not check the time!

    It's tough to answer... If I have another failure to thrive baby with CMPI, I will of course be much quicker and more efficient in getting on top of it. We won't have the same lack of knowledge that we had first time around.

    But as far as everything else we've done, I think we're doing pretty well so will do the same next time (with a little less trial-and-error!).

    I will however try to stress less!

    I would happily co sleep if needed. I would breastfeed lying down overnight from birth.

    I would trust my instincts more.

    I would exercise more during pregnancy

    I would go into a birthing situation with more knowledge.

    I would stress less.

    Take the newborn in public EARLIER and not lock up at home like I'm in quarantine.

    Let the baby actually cry. It's ok it's how they communicate. I use to panic at every cry.

    Make sure there are frozen meals coming out of hospital. This stuffed me up last time.

    GO to Mothers Group as I missed out with DD she had bad colic/reflux which stressed me out to much.

    Let others help. I tried to be superwoman the first time

    Oh yes and sleep more clean less.

    Trust instinct more instead of trying to find the answer in a book.
