Since I have been testing out new ways to get myself ready and out the door on time, I have found several things that help me with the morning process! I am sharing 3 tips below to help you get yourself and baby out the door on time for work and daycare! I’m not a pro by any means, but I’ve found these tips to be very helpful and essential to me leaving the house on time, so that I’m not late for work! So far, so good on that point!
- Pick tomorrows outfit for yourself and for baby the night before. You don’t want to be running around trying on several different outfits, or trying to find those pants you just knew were clean that morning! Sometimes if I’m not sure how I’m going to feel on my outfit the next day, I choose two different outfits, just incase I wake up in a different mood. As you know by now, it’s not only you anymore you have to get ready, so make sure to pick that little sweetie’s outfit for the next day too!
- Pack the baby’s diaper bag the night before. Make sure you have everything baby will need at the babysitters the next day. This way you’re less likely to forget something, while trying to rush getting the bag packed the morning of. You’ll thank me later! You can also check the bag four times if you want this way!
- Wake up at least 30 minutes to an hour before baby, if you can. This can be the time that you get yourself all together. Wait to get dressed incase baby spits up or other bodily functions happen, so that you don’t have to change your outfit before you even leave the house. I really enjoy doing this, and even though I am so tired waking up that much earlier, it is so worth it because then I can spend that extra time with Rylie before we have to leave. Usually that times spent feeding her and just cuddling before I get her ready to head out. So when it works out that way, I love it!
