Are you keeping your Child off School in protest of the SAT’s for 6-7 year olds?

I have woke up to headlines in the news of parents keeping their primary school children home from school today all across the country in protest of SAT’s for 6-7 year olds. They want the government to scrap all SAT’s for 6-7 year olds. I don’t have a child in that age bracket, mine is still only 3 months old,…

How hard is it to breastfeed?

My breastfeeding story starts back when I was 36 weeks pregnant when my mum and midwife both asked me (at different times I may add!) if I was going to breastfeed. I told them yes, I was going to give it a go. My midwife said oh you are such a good girl, it’s very important for baby. I got…

April: C-Section Awareness Month

April is c-section awareness month. Before I had my c-section in February I really didn’t know or give a thought about c-section awareness month. What is it all about? When we found out we were expecting last May, a c-section did not even enter the conversation. My mum gave birth naturally to four of us, my little sister also with…

Clothes for my baby girl

Today’s post is about recent finds and what clothes for my baby girl we have been given. We have been so lucky with family and friends giving us lots of clothes for baby girl.

Word of the Week 15/04/2016 – Dentist

This week’s Word of the Week is Dentist. Yesterday I had to go to the dentist for prep work for a crown. I hate the dentist and can truly say now that its worse than having a c-section. I was probably being a bit naive but I didn’t know what prep work was involved with having a crown. I have…

The weeks are flying by! This week baby girl turned 2 months old and time for the dreaded immunisations. It’s all that’s been on my mind all week.

Night-Time – Word of the Week 01/04/2016

This week my Word for the Week is Night-Time.  Before I had baby girl, sleep was very sacred to me. 8 or 9 hours sleep a night was completely normal to me. I was also a very heavy sleeper and nothing would wake me.  Isn’t it funny how your body changes to accomodate a new little person in your life?…

What to keep in your baby changing bag?

I thought I would write a little post on what to keep in your babies changing bag. I really didn’t have a clue to start with. There is lots of information out there on what to pack in your babies bag for the hospital and your own bag, but what do you take with you when you are out and…

Word of the Week 25/03/2016

This week I have chosen Independence as my word of the week as I have gained back the ability to go out in my car and drive again. I had a c- section with baby girl which you can read about here in My Birth Story, so was advised not to drive for 6 weeks as it would have invalidated my…
