Forbid anyone from visiting unless they bring food

Advice from the team who dont have babies:
Things my mom did that I think were good:
Never locked me out (though she'd always wait up to yell at me for being so late).
Let me climb trees/play in the creek/throw rocks with the boys.
Accepted that I was never going to listen to anything she had to say, until I was an adult, when I now listen to everything she has to say.
Let me lick the spoon/beaters when we were making cake

My mum taught me how to make cheap dinners. Stovies were her classic Edinburgh Uni staple (potato and onion stew with any kind of leftover meat), made popular during the war. This could remind Kate and Wills of their Scottish relationship roots and help boost the trust fund when times are tight

If the baby is crying it probably wants something. If you give it everything you have and it's still crying, it's probably evil

Put your shoulders back, your boobs won't grow in the shade

Im childless so I have no advice but from watching my friends who are mums I would say that 1) you cant worry about getting your baby into routine, theyll dictate that. 2) Sleep/rest when they are sleeping. 3) Make time for yourself and your partner/husband, it cant all be about the baby even if you might want it to be

Dont feel like you have to be some kind of supermum who hand-knits organic woollen booties, never lets him watch cartoons past his bedtime or succumbs to his demands for tooth-rotting sweets. Everyone does it. Seriously, its fine
