As soon as I hit full term at 37 weeks I had a few separate occasions of hours of contractions that would go on for hours then fizzle out. The more it would happen the more angry I’d get and I ended up in an absolutely awful mood the week leading up to finally giving… Continue reading My Second Birth Story!
This is my second time packing a hospital bag, you'd think I'd remember what needs to go in it! WRONG! Some people say I'm brave for leaving it so late packing at almost 36 weeks but when you can't leave your toddler alone for two seconds and when they finally nap you just want to… Continue reading Hospital Bag!
I am constantly baffled at how our bodies cope with with things during and after pregnancy. Seeing as I was only pregnant with Fraser last year and am now over half way through my second pregnancy I really should give myself a pat on the back! Getting pregnant again, I wondered how similar it would… Continue reading Pregnancy With A Toddler!
I know what you're thinking, "you're pregnant, how can you possibly be upset about the gender? Each baby is a blessing and as long as it's healthy it shouldn't matter what you have!" But for some pregnant mamas it's not the case. Being disappointed about your baby's gender is actually far more common than you… Continue reading Gender disappointment
The last time I wrote about my breastfeeding experience was when Fraser was just 5 months old! I wrote about our experience in a pros and cons list as there wasn't so much a story to tell. Since the last post, we've had tough times, times I've wanted to give up and forget all about… Continue reading Our Breastfeeding Experience – Part 2
I had decided all the way back when my little sister was born in 2006 that when I eventually had my own baby I'd like to use cloth nappies. I remember my mum telling me all about them, how they worked, how they were better than normal disposable nappies and all the benefits they had.… Continue reading My Cloth Nappy Review!
WEANING. Another controversial topic it seems. Some parents wait until baby is 6 months, and some don't. All I say is that as long as you've done sufficient research and you genuinely think your baby is ready, or better yet been to visit a dietitian the choice is yours whether you wait or not.… Continue reading Our Weaning Journey So Far!
I've seen plenty of posts about being a new mum; how we feel, what we're scared about, but not so many for new dads. I thought I'd find out and ask my boyfriend, Brad a few questions about how he's found fatherhood so far. We're not so much a 'lovey-dovey' couple so I thought it… Continue reading Becoming A Dad!
Before I start, I don't want this post to be interpreted the wrong way. This post is not to shame anyone but just get a point across. We're all taught to love our new bodies after birth, to love each and every stretch mark, mum tums, lose skin etc. But no one really talks about… Continue reading The Mums Who Bounced Back
I started my Instagram account in October '18, so not to long ago! I decided to make it and keep it private from people that I know in my area, to record everything we get up to blah blah blah. I thought it might be nice for Frazzle to look at when he's older and… Continue reading Pros And Cons Of Insta Life
