    Yes. I've also done the dress in clothes night before. Or send in pjs and let them dress bub.

    And wine, yes. A trip to Dan's will be in order
    You can buy those refillable squeezy pouches they would be perfect for smoothies/yoghurts etc.

    I'll echo what everyone else has said. My DD is also 10 months old I went back 2 months ago only doing 11hrs a week (fluctuates though up to 20ish hours some weeks) DD goes to childcare two half days and I do the rest of my work in her naps at home. I also have to provide food at childcare. She also wakes at night. Im studying on top of my work. I'm exhausted.
    My advice is to get your clothes and her clothes ready the night before. I know someone who puts bub to sleep in their clothes for the next day so it's easier in the morning!
    Pack your lunch and bubs the night before. I have a lunch bag for DD. She has a tub with yoghurt, a tub with fruit and several pieces of finger food. With her bbox cup. She's not a great eater yet. I make things like veggie fritters, mini quiches, mini pizzas, pikelets, mini muffins and freeze them and also give her a sandwich or some grated cheese or omelette or something.
    If you are giving bub breakfast before you go put bub in highchair to eat while you get dressed and ready.
    Don't put your clothes on til you're ready to walk out the door. Just in case!
    Frozen meals, the odd takeaway on work days.
    All the best it'll take a while to get into a groove. At the start allow more time than you think you'll need for drop off I find it always takes me longer than I thought it would.

    Thank you ladies I felt so inspired that I just cooked pikelets. I'm sure they will all be eaten long before I starts back at work but it's practice. They taste great, just need to work on getting them round 😂

    Pikelets are the best. I mostly make banana ones.

    Keep spare clothes at work in case you spill tea/coffee/food on yours. Also means if you accidently leave the house in your pjs it's OK.

    Run a load on the washing machine every day, hang out at night to bring in the next night.

    Outsource anything and everything so your home time can be dedicated to your bub.

    Bahaha I can picture me sitting on the train and walking through a crowded CBD to the office in flannel PJs. Well in winter anyway. Summer would be more interesting as I don't wear PJs 😳

    I once got to work fully dressed with hair and make up from waist UP!

    I had flannel bottoms and bedroom slippers on.

    Urgh. Hence the spare clothes I kept in the car (I drove).
