Nope! Sleep, you mad woman

You may wake up with leaky boobs that feel like a big shelf for a few days, but they'll adjust.

Express at first feed from one boob as you feed on the other - don't get up in the night

As for getting her to take a bottle...make sure the milk's really warm (hot - body temp) - and if WMF can't do it, try doing it yourself - DS wouldn't take milk from DH to begin with. He frowned at him like he was being an idiot - only mummies had milk in DS's four-month-old world!

Babies, eh? Tricksy little blighters!

Definitely sleep! Just when you think you have figured out the rules of the baby game, they go and change them

I think they have meetings with flipcharts and different coloured highlighters. All those babies, trying to work out how best to fox us...

they set themselves targets for parent confusion and lack of sleep caused and drink milk and champange cocktails to celebrate good performance (sorry no grin emoticons so smile will have to do)

I bet they have piecharts and other such things. And Venn diagrams - Mummy's tearing her hair out and gnashing her teeth, Daddy's tearing his hair out and muttering.

Wow, they're terrible devious creatures, aren't they?! And I'm doing it all over again...

He gets special grabbing inappropriate things privileges, you mean? Or a whole computer keyboard to himself?!
