    Mornings are Cray Cray! I make dhs lunch the night before as he leaves for work at 3:30 am yuck. Mr four hops into my bed for cuddles around 7am I shower about 7:30 I then set him up for breaky, grab myself a coffee and start my makeup/ hair. Mr 18 months likes a sleep in so about 8:15 I get him up change and dress him make him a bottle. I finish my hair and get the 4 yo dressed. Feed 18 mo toast or fruit. Put them in car grab bags and we are usually at daycare about 9ish? I start work about ten/ten thirty.

    I dont have a choice, my DH's alarm for work goes off at 4:30am and he'd never get up for work if I didnt basically kick him out of bed.

    I refuse to believe that there is a 4.30 'AM'.

    Ye same.

    Hats off to you ladies who are up at 4 or 5.

    And to the PP that said she's up early to express omg I envy you.

    I hate expressing so you being able to do that is just amazing!

    I'd recommend a ring sling, VP, or a stretchy wrap like a hugabub. You can make a DIY stretchy with a few metres of stretch jersey or pick up a RS pretty cheap second hand. The beauty of the RS is that you can use it for years, right up to toddler stage, whereas the stretchy is only good for 5-6 months depending on bub's size.

    Subbing for when DS arrives in September, I'm feeling very unprepared for what is ahead.

    Anything pre-6:30 is foreign to me since DD sleeps through. I feel so lazy, you ladies are so organized!

    Any tips,for getting through the day if you get up pre-6:00am?

    Sorry to digress VP.

    Dont fall into the trap of lazing around when you wake up. Play with the kids, have some breakfast, do a bit of a tidy up etc. If I wake up and lounge around on the couch or lay in bed with the boys I end up feeling more tired than if I get up and be active.

    I chuck a load of washing in, build some lego, read some books etc.

    Hats off to you for being so organised! (I'm jelous!)
    - what time do you get to bed at night if you are up at 5am?
    By 10pm at the latest. DD still has a feed overnight most nights too or has a some playtime grrr. I work 2 weekdays and every 2nd Saturday.
    When dd was 3mths however I really struggled getting out the door. Id wait until ds was at kindy and dd was sleeping to have a shower and make myself pretty then when she woke id feed her and go shopping, run errands etc. It'd mean id quickly wash my face and brush my hair before school drop off.
    Totally gets easier as they get older

    It took me a while to get used to a pre-6am wake up, I started them when my oldest was about 4 months old and none of my kids slept through until they were at least two years old, so they were afternoons where I had a nana nap because I lived on 5 hours of broken sleep for a long time. The plus side of that is I now only need 7 hours sleep max to be full of energy!
    I don't drink coffee, or any caffeinated drinks. The days I feel a bit weary I drink two big glasses of water and eat an apple. Apples are scientifically proven to give you more energy than a cup of coffee, and I find if I'm really well hydrated (drinking 3.4L a day) I don't get that 2pm tiredness. Also eating well. Over Easter I indulged in too much chocolate and I felt like a zombie. Cut it out and went back to eating healthy and my energy levels are good to go again.
