    Pack lunches and lay out clothes the night before. Showers the night before or after you get home.

    Mostly as per other PP's

    Have a printed weekly roster so we know what days we need to do what ie sport/music (my kids are now in primary and secondary school and we still do this)

    Have a printed daily/morning routine with times on it (when the kids were little I used clock faces to reinforce time telling)

    Have all bags/instruments etc packed the night before (and some even in the car) and lunches in the fridge ready to go

    Have all clothes laid out ready to dress into

    Have a spare set of clothes out - they become tomorrow's clothes if they're not needed

    I wake 1/2hr before kids get up so I can shower

    Pack the washing machine as I go and start it just before I leave

    On my 3 work days it's imperative that I get everything ready the night before. I have all the kids clothes laid out including jumpers, socks, shoes so there's nothing I have to find in the morning.
    I put my gym clothes out ready to get into as soon as I get out of bed
    I pack my work clothes into my gym bag and put it in the car
    I get all the kids daycare bags packed and in the car (luckily my daycare feeds them so I don' thave to pack lunches)

    Then we get up at 6, get dressed, get in the car and go. Kids are at daycare for breakfast at 6:30, I'm at the gym by 6:45. Workout, shower and off to work to start by 8.

    This... or even an ergo, although not sure if you can feed a newborn in an ergo but def can for the older ones. There are some great tutorial vids on youtubethat might help you get the hang of it. Butti agree with pp it takes a few times to master

    I hate expressing so you being able to do that is just amazing!
    You gotta do what you gotta do. dd2 needed 3-4 bottles a day when she started daycare. Id express once in the morning, twice at work and every home day around lunchtime to have enough milk.

    Any tips,for getting through the day if you get up pre-6:00am?.
    Make it your normal wake up time. Early mornings are only hard if you are not used to it. Like anything, once you get into a routine it's not hard. Yes those night my girls were up multiple times were rough but it doesn't last forever.



    wifey of hubby who is always away. mother of two girls who are always amusing.
