Post subject: Tips on coping...
I think it would be a nice idea if we could all share our tips on coping as a single parent.
When you need to have a shower put baby in a bouncer on the floor, in the bathroom with you. Freya used to be really calmed by the noise of the water.
Buy a baby carrier, I used to put Freya in hers so I could do the washing up, hang the washing out etc.

LOL !! that brings back memories. Trying to hoover with my little porker strapped to me ! ! Good job shes mobile now - dont think my back could take it. Baby carrier was a god send though. My main advice would be to get out and about. I try and go out every day - even if its just a quick walk up the shops. Otherwise I think id go crazy ! !
