Timing is everything with a new baby!
It’s not that looking after Ayla is particularly hard – it’s mostly just nappy changes and feedings – but those simple things seem to take up a LOT of time!
Plus, when Ayla is awake all I want to do is hang out with her, talk to her and play with her, and before I know it it’s tea time!
So timing what needs to be done for the day around her sleeps and happy times is a great art that I am slowly mastering.
I think the key is patience; taking the time to stop and give her a proper feed instead of rushing it and leaving her half hungry, or spending the five minutes it takes to walk to the parents room to change her.
The result is a happy baby, and that means a happy mum!
