Consider Your Night Feed Schedule
Night feeds can be one of the biggest stresses of having a new baby. You want to decide if you are breastfeeding, bottle feeding or doing a combination.

Clean And Declutter
When the baby arrives you won’t have much time to get the house organised so try and do this sooner rather than later. Have a big declutter and move anything that might harm the baby out of reach. You want to lock away anything like alcohol or cleaning products, ready for when they start to crawl or drag themselves around. The sooner you do this, the much better you will feel. Also once you get to the end of your pregnancy you won’t want to move around so much so try and get it done ahead of time.

These top tips should help you prepare for your new arrival. Getting a little organised can leave you feeling much more ready to welcome your baby into your life. While you can never exactly prepare yourself, doing as much as you can ahead of time is guaranteed to make it that little bit easier.
