What are 3 things you wish someone told you before you had a baby? I don't mean big earth-shattering things, I mean silly little things that seem completely insignificant until you have a bub. Share your wisdom and maybe it will help another mum out there. Here are my 3:
1. Banana stains everything horribly and usually permanently, unless you wash it out straight away. Who has time to do that??
2. Bibs that do up with velcro are useless once your bub is old strong enough and smart enough to pull them off. Get the one-piece bibs with an elasticated hole to put their head through. Can't pull those off!
3. Don't buy a cane chair for the nursery. After you spend 20 minutes feeding/singing/reading/rocking bub off to sleep, you go to stand up and the chair creaks loud enough to wake the dead and you're back where you started with a wide awake baby.
What are your 3 things???
