Weaning isn’t a baby stage I love. There I said it. I found it quite stressful with Little Man and this time round with Little Lady it has been tricky for a whole new set of reasons. The main one being that due to her prematurity (she was 11 weeks early) her digestive system was ready for food at 6 months but she didn’t really get what to do with food as her corrected age was a lot younger. Because of this and advice from her consultant we have spent a lot of time on the puree stage so I… View Post

*Trigger Warning* It’s funny how grief hits you sometimes. Well, no its not funny, it’s rubbish but you get the jist. You think you’re having a good day with it all, a good week even and then bam! Something hits. For me it was a photo; it wasn’t a photo of my little angel though like you might think. It was a photo of Little Man & Little Lady and some other children too. There was a space, right next to my kids and it just looked empty. It looked like it wasn’t meant to be there and it wasn’t.… View Post

Nappy rash! It has become the bane of my life since having Little Lady. Little Man didn’t really suffer with it other than the odd flare up when teething so I was not clued up on the best thing to use.

Another thing my kids love is a good old picnic and the summer holidays is a perfect time for whipping out the picnic blanket and enjoying some good food outside. So if you are looking for some inspiration today I am sharing… View Post

Welcome back to my Neonatal Life series. Little Lady spent 9 weeks in NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). I wanted to read about other Mum’s experiences; I wanted to know if how I was feeling about it all was normal so I thought it only right that I shared my experiences of it too. Little Lady was born one hour into my 29th week of pregnancy weighing just over 3lbs, you can read about why she was born early here. Our 9 week NICU journey was the hardest one of my life so far but believe me, it is more than worth it. Today’s… View Post
