Nothing can be more exhausting than being a new mum. Your old sleep routine is completely out the door and the days of having a full night sleep seem so far far away.

  • Oh wow….it seems that whoever posted this article was over tired as all the tips are missing :D


  • If I got really tired I had a rest during one of the baby’s day time sleeps. Resting on my bed relaxed my muscles while I read a few pages of a book or watched a movie and often fell asleep. I very rarely saw the whole of the movie.


  • Take some time in the day for you. I used to love time at the end of the day when my whole family was in bed. I would read a magazine, look at my iPad and watch TV all at the same time… because I could!!


  • Great tips. I’ve been taking advantage of online shopping since having a baby. It’s soo much easier. The postie and I have become great mates! Haha


  • These are some nice tips which may or my not work.
    We never had money for me to go to an exercise class with creche for the kids.
    My husband worked hard at his daytime job and wasn’t very hands-on in the night.
    I never did online shopping as that daily trip to the shop with the kids was actually one of my outings. We have no family nearby to help out or babysit, except for the odd night out, we hardly had a time out but we survived. I agree with the meditation and the cutting back on alcohol.
    What really kept me on the legs when the kids were little, was connecting with mumma’s & kids.
