New Weekly Huggies Forum Promotion! Win a Winnie the Pooh play tunnel! (15th Aug12) Lock Rss

Go to the baby care tab an then the breast feeding tab smile

Top 5:

1- Not to buy too many dressy clothes as they are hard to dress and undress when changing Nappies onsies are most practical.

2- Huggies is the only brand of Nappies that has the correct fit for newborn babies.

3- Huggies wipes are much better than any other brand and remove more using less wipes.

4- To buy lots of different size clothes because you don't know how big your baby will be or how long the clothes will fit for.

5- Buy some bottles just in case you cannot breast feed or you need to express to give your baby that extra top up.
Tips for Breastfeeding are at

Before I had kids I wish someone had told me how tierd I would be but also how blessed I would be to have great kids who are always willing to give you a hug and a wet kiss when u r down and the 2nd thing would be how much breastfeeding and teeth dont mix , oh and by the way dont eat grapes whilst breatfeeding because that has its own punishment in store for mum & bub - so those would be the top 3 the next 2 are annoying but not a deal breaker ( if I had been told I still wouldnt have believed)
4/ How much I would fall in love with my kids and the smile they bring to my face every day
5/ How watching them walk for the 1st time is like winning gold at the London Olympics

The top 5 things I wish I knew before becoming pregnant:

1. Just how painful breastfeeding would be if your baby isn't latching on correctly.
2. How hard it is to leave your little one for the first time.
3. How much closer the relationship between you and your partner is since your baby has been born
4. Having a C-section was not actually as bad as expected. I guess you have something else to keep your mind off the pain.
5. How difficult it is to survive on little sleep, but it is all so worth it!!!

5 things i wish i knew before becoming pregnant:
1. hubby should position himself on the side and must not look down when baby is coming. this might affect your sex life smile
2. im so worried about stretchmarks that i put a lot of cream on my tummy. i realised that stretchmarks may appear almost anywhere so you have to moisturise all over.

1. You can go to for some great information on breastfeeding.

2. 5 things I wish I'd known before becoming pregnant:
- Morning sickness shouldn't be called morning sickness: it should be morning, afternoon, evening and night sickness.
- That wonderful memory you have right now disappears when you become pregnant, and maybe one day in the next few years it'll return!
- No one can tell you anything that'll prepare you for the joy, terror, horror and love of being a parent.
- Preparing a meal for new parents and dropping it off to them is the best help you can give them.
- You will be tired when you first become a parent. Very tired. Beyond any form of tiredness you have felt before. Yet somehow, our miraculous bodies continue to function through the day and care for our bundles of joy.
1 - the stretch marks don't just appear on your belly - they can be on your thighs too
2 - listen to the advice, you'll get heaps, but do what works for you - no one will know your baby and what it needs better than you - no matter what you think
3 - Just how long it can feel between obstetricain appointments, how much you can imagine could go wrong and how much relief you can feel when you hear that heartbeat at your appointments.
4 - Listen to the people who tell you to sleep whenever, absolutely WHENEVER, the baby sleeps - you won't even enjoy your clean house when you are sleep deprived and the baby definitely does not care if the floor was swept today or yesterday.
5 - It's ok to not love being pregnant Or, go to the baby care tab and then hit the breast feeding article, or ask on another thread.

5 things I wish I'd known:

1) Ultrasounds are really hard to get into.
2) Choosing the hospital you want is a big decision
3) Baby Showers are HARD to organize
4) Pregnancy takes FOREVER ( I just want to hold my baby in my arms)
5) How scary it is when you think something's gone wrong in your pregnancy because even though you haven't held your baby psychically yet, if you even think about losing it your heart breaks :'(
