To stay awake when feeding:
Siitting cross legged without leaning against anything
Tickling my neck
Mumsnet of course

To feel better during the day:
Hot chocolate
Walking with the buggy

What do you do? I need a few more tricks!

Ok, i am a pro at this:

cold juice
set a list of jobs to be ticked off as done
plan the day
break it down into half hour tasks
nap when baby naps
Go for a walk, even if its around the block or to the paper shop.
Get up when droopy eyes start and do something, fill dishwasher/clean bath/bung a wahs load in

Go to bed early, get in bed at 7 if you want, just go.

And the big one
ACCEPT OFFERS OF HELP...IF someone offers to take baby out for an hour..let them!

Hell yeah, am with you on the coffee front!! Coffee and 2 sugars! Gettin up, walkin about, watchin dvds, talking to baby, or even myself!
When really tired, i also agree with fresh air, and i do like writing myself a good list. I make lists of lists! As i only have a 15 day old, tiredness only seems to hit me after 5 pm. I am up pretty much all night. Mumsnet has been pretty awesome since i joined a few days ago!
