Ten Fun Life Hacks To Make Motherhood *Slightly* Easier

Tuesday, 18 February 2014

By Erica Davies

I don't know about you, but my Facebook feed these days is filled with thirty things I should know about this and two hundred life changes every mum needs to make before giving birth etc etc.

You know the type, lots of funny pictures of children and pithy life lessons as captions. Sometimes I read them, sometimes I even snort a little bit, sometimes I share them - it just depends on my mood.

But then I read one that actually - amidst the silly and the schmaltzy - had some genius ideas that could be really useful.

So we have picked out our absolute favourites to include here - let us know if you've got any more that we should include!

1: A SHOE CADDY MAKES A GREAT CAR ACTIVITY CENTRE

3: MAKE YOUR OWN 'MONSTER SPRAY' WITH CUTE DECORATIONS TO STOP THOSE NIGHT WORRIES



4: CUT A HOLE IN A DUMMY TO MAKE TAKING MEDICINE A BIT LESS TERRIFYING


5: PREVENT SPILLS BY INSERTING A CRAZY STRAW UPSIDE DOWN INTO THE JUICE BEAKER


6: CUT UP A POOL NOODLE AND ATTACH TO THE DOOR TO PREVENT TRAPPED FINGERS



7: AN OLD DVD CASE MAKES THE PERFECT TRAVEL ART KIT AND EASEL
