I have been pondering the things no-one told me and I certainly couldn’t find in books, such as:
1. When your baby decides to reject the boob, what to do. All the books are so gung-ho on breastfeeding that no-one seems to think what you should do with the sore boobs and to get rid of the milk should THE BABY decide he/she doesn’t want boob anymore.
2. How to make a 2.5 year old stop throwing stuff at his twins sisters’ heads in an effort to get attention
3. That no book is going to get your baby into a routine and that they are pretty much going to do what they want for at least the first few months
4. NOT to be smug with first-time parents. Shame, it’s hard enough as it is 🙂
5. Vomit. Need I say more?
Anybody care to add any thoughts?? What were your experiences that no-one warned you about?
