Becoming a parent can be one of life's hardest transitions and hindsight is a beautiful (and frustrating) thing.

Many frazzled new mums and dads find themselves asking, "why didn't anyone warn me about this before the baby came along ...?".

This is your chance to tell new parents the things you wish someone had said to you.

Maybe you've got a trick for discreetly breast feeding in public, a no-fail teething remedy or a sure way to diffuse a supermarket tantrum in less than 30 seconds. 

Share your top tips so that parents-to-be out there can head into the sleep-deprived fog of nappies and breast pumps forewarned.

Or, feel free to share all the useless advice and the attitudes you have received as a parent to be. What has annoyed you the most?
