Apparently research has found the average couple spends over £10,000 on their child every year - yikes! But regardless of this, every Mum I've ever spoken to would happily tell you that having children is the best thing that will ever happen to you. Of course your life does change in a huge way when you have a baby, there's no missing that. Here are five surprising things which change in your life when you are a mummy.

Another major thing which changes in your life when you are a mummy is that you care more about your sleep. When you are younger, you don’t need to worry as much about how much sleep you get. However you have to get up for your baby, so you need to get as much sleep as you can. Any sleep you do get when you are a mum needs to be good quality. A lot of mums try and get into a regular sleeping pattern so that they can sleep around their child’s bedtimes and attempt to get as much rest as they can before waking up with their child. They may also make changes in the bedroom, so they have a great night’s sleep and might look at changing their bed and mattress, so it’s a lot more comfortable.
