I Made It – Finally

It’s been absolutely ages since I’ve been to church. Well, 18 weeks and before that it would about a year! I’m a dreadful Christian. It’s not like I don’t believe, I do, I pray every night with P1 and on my own. It’s purely because on a Sunday we are usually so busy visiting my MiL or spending time as …

Schwartz 2in1 Recipe Range Sachet Review for Britmums

    Recently I’ve been looking at new ways to change the way my family eats. For ease, I tend to just throw something in the oven, I don’t do very much home cooking – the type where you make everything from scratch. I was sent two sachets to try from the Schwartz 2in1 Recipe Range. Here’s what I thought of them: Garlic …

We Buggy Pushed 5km For Bliss!

I completed my 5km buggy push today for the charity Bliss. I did not realise just how far 5km is! My feet are now killing me. However, I’m very proud of all of us, my OH joined us for the walk too, we managed it in 1hr 12mins and finished it first. A HUGE thank you to everyone who sponsored …

KBBF2013 – Breastfeeding Myths

I searched the internet for some, thinking there would only be a few but there are so many! I’ve managed to pick out a few of the ones I remember worrying about. This post, being the last one, took absolutely ages to put together. Many women do not produce enough milk. Wrong! The majority of mums produce more than enough …

No More?!

We worked out that P1 has four nursery sessions left. That’s just two more weeks before the government funding finishes and I’ll be taking her out of nursery until she starts school in September. I’m feeling really sad about the whole situation for several reasons. P1 has been going to the same nursery since she was 10months old. She wasn’t …

KBBF2013 – Breastfeeding Beyond A Year

I haven’t yet had the privilege of breastfeeding beyond a year. My views on the topic are quite mixed really. I want to let P2 wean off of me in her own time, I hate the thought of her being unhappy and needing me, but for me to refuse her my boob. But at the same time I can’t quite …

Sudocrem Care and Protect Review

There’s no doubt about it, Thomas Smith is a genius. For those of you who don’t know who Thomas Smith is, he’s the creator of Sudocrem. Since having P1 Sudocrem has been my go to cream for nappy rash. I’ve also found the cream outstanding for spots and my bright red nose that I get during a cold. I jumped …

A Break Through

Last night I went out again to Pole Fitness, this time accompanied by my best friend, and left P2 in the care of my OH. This is the photo he sent me whilst I was out… This is a rare sight to see now days. I’ve been making a note of all her sleeps, feeds and nappy changes on a …

KBBF2013 – Breast Milk Pumping

It’s very important for any breastfeeding mum to purchase a breast pump, a decent breast pump. I made this mistake this time round. For my first daughter, I expressed loads, I had to for her to survive. I used one in the hospital that was amazing, the Medela Electric, and I bought the same one for home use. I had …

A Sister Bond

Despite the behaviour and sleep troubles we’ve been experiencing with both the girls… There are some amazing moments we’ve shared recently. Every morning P1 comes into our bedroom, to find her sister snuggled up in bed with us. She clambers in and joins us, but not to be with us, to be with her sister. She cuddles up next to …

KBBF2013 – The Importance Of Breastfeeding Support

When I think support, I think failure. Why would anyone need support if things were going right? Right… Wrong! Support comes in so many shapes and forms. I’ve asked so many questions to family members, post so many questions onto forums/my blog, I’ve read so many magazines, books and websites. There’s advice and support everywhere! When I struggled with sore …

I’m Going Grey!

I’m feeling at a loose end with both the girls. P1 is being an absolute nightmare with her behaviour and eating. She’s ended up in her bedroom for discipline twice today! We don’t do this often but it’s got completely out of hand and it’s the only way she’ll listen and realise. P2 isn’t sleeping. At night. She ended up …

To My Princess 1 – 4 Years 6 Months

To my Princess 1, This month I’ve been hearing lots of great things about you from the nursery. Things like you writing your name properly, and talking to the students that come in to help. You seriously are such a social butterfly. I’ve noticed that these past few weeks you’ve become really attached to Daddy. He gets lots of cuddles …
