Use a pacifier. My youngest sister used one and I saw how hard it was when my parents tried to break her of it. And luckily my oldest never used one/refused to take one. My second was another story, however. He was colicky and cranky and even though he was never super attached to the pacifier, there were times when it was the ONLY thing to calm him down.

Co-sleep/bedshare. Never had to consider it with my first, but Abri was totally different. She couldn't lay flat because of the reflux an she wouldn't sleep alone. We took shifts the first few weeks sitting up holding her while she slept, but we had to break down and put her in bed. So much better! I won't start off co-sleeping this time but I won't hesitate to change if it means everyone sleeps better

bedsharing...i used to cringe when i heard other moms do it, especially with newborns...but uhh yeah my son is 15 months old and hasn't slept a single night in his crib lol. i love it though, we both sleep much better. i'm concerned about when #2 gets here but i think i'll just keep her in the bassinet right next to me.

and also watching tv...i knew i'd let him watch tv but not this amount. but seriously sometimes the only way to get something done is to give him a snack or meal in front of the tv just so i can take a shower!

I don't recall any Never's, but life is very different than I said it would be

HMM, I was going to read to him every night before bed (We just started bed time stories)

I was going to limit his TV (Team Umizoomi is always on in the background) he doesn't watch a lot, because he can't sit still, but he watches more than my mind said he would

I would limit his junk food (He gets a flavor pop or piece of candy every evening if he hasn't been naughty)

I would not be a sucker for the pouty face. (I fall for it, every.single.time)

And the list goes on and on and on........

This, but also our bedroom will be a child-free zone. Baby will not sleep in there, period. We want clear boundaries: our bedroom is for us, his bedroom is for him.

TV for sure. I always said 30 minutes max a day Yeah, that didn't work out so much....

Pacifiers... I always said I would never allow that, but both of my kids wouldn't calm down without one. Luckily they were both pretty easy to break of it.
