    Take some time for yourself for a couple of minutes - run a nice bath or shower, make a nice coffee with bikkies. Cuddle up and watch a movie together.

    When I had those days I set up DDs play mat and a few extra toys, completely closed off the area we were in from any animals/doors/corners (basically anything she could get hurt by then lay down on the couch, tossed a movie on and napped on and off for the day.

    I do this exactly. Movies, snack food, shut doors, air con on, toys all over the place. DS generally loves it and entertains himself while I chill/nap/read. Have done it a bit lately since being pregnant and exhausted!

    This is what I did. Except on the floor in his nursery.

    I used to do this too, when I had 1. Cant do it now with 3 but when DS1 was little I'd close us in a room that was kid safe and just relax as much as possible.
