7. Read a book
Don't worry, we're not going to tell you that once you have a baby you'll never have time to read again. If you enjoy reading now you'll find time once baby arrives. But it's a good idea before baby gets here to read a book about how to look after babies. There are loads of books out there, and some of the advice can be quite conflicting (annoying, right?) so if you just read one you might find things a bit less confusing. We recommend Dorothy Waide's You Simply Can't Spoil A Newborn, but we also think you should take it with a pinch of salt, you- gorgeous mama, posses instincts and intuition, and you know your own baby like no-one else, so trust yourself, and enjoy yourself.
