1. One thing I found to be extemley worthwhile in my first few weeks as a new mum was to carve out half an hour each week to do whatever i wanted. Whether that was to pop on a face mask and relax in the bath catch up on my favourite show or scroll through pinterest. it dosent sound like a lot but as you’ll know, when you have a tiny little human who requires constant attention.. it really is! I would always feel very refreshed after my half an hour and able to tackle the more tiring jobs more easily.

      YES! Sophie, that’s so true. I’m realizing this more and more with my second baby. For me, I try to simply zone out while I cook dinner when hubby gets home. He takes the kids to play behind a closed door so I can have a little quiet. I pop open a coke and turn on Netflix while I cook and it makes a huge difference. One day I went out with a friend for 3 hours and I swear I came back a better mom, haha. Thanks for reading and commenting!
