Like everyone else, pack and organise all the bags for the next day at night. Whatever lunch you can pack and put in the fridge ready just add the fresh food in the morning. We have an 1 and 1/2 to get ready and out the door. I find showering together in mornings fast and easy, after breakfast (saves time on cleaning him), and clean teeth in the shower as well. I also let Noah know that there is no playing/tv until he has had breakfast and is dressed for the day with teeth cleaned. I also make it his responsibilty to get his comfort toys and put them with the bags ready to walk out the door.

definitely prep the night before. i always shower at night so that is one less thing to do in the morning.
sometimes rearranging the order that you do things can help. it helped me to eat breakfast first thing when i wake up, while everyone else is still asleep. it gave me the time i needed to eat, make coffee and pack a lunch so i wasn't rushing to do these things at the last minute while flying out the door with a cranky baby.
think about your schedule and see what needs to be done first or while others are asleep. this small change made a huge difference for me.

yep like the other girls said, organise absolutely everything you can the night before. I get school bags packed lunches made and put in the fridge, clothes out and ironed. Then i make sure i get up early and have a shower and get ready for work before the kids are up that way its just a matter of dressing them feeding them stuffing their lunches in their bags and going.

Definitely, do as much as you can the night before. Laying out clothes, packing food, packing diaper bag, etc. Each task will save you minute here and there but the minutes add up. What I do is I shoot for 45 minutes before the time I actually want to leave the house.

I am breastfeeding my 3 month old twin girls. It's difficult to get them fed while also getting myself ready before I go to work at 7am. I've found that showering, blow drying, and straightening my hair after I put them to bed at night helps. Then, all I have to do in the morning is throw on clothes, brush my teeth, and put on makeup. I also pack my lunch and get my things together the night before. My husband helps in the mornings too because after I feed them, he takes over by getting them changed, dressed, and packing their diaper bag. He also gets them in their car seats and takes them to daycare since he doesn't go to work until 8am. He's a huge help. :)
