Sorry, One Of Those 4am Mum Moments

Well the birds are tweeting, I don’t think I’ve ever heard birds in this house?!, and I’ve just been woken up by P2. So?! What makes this unusual, special even, is that P2 went to sleep early last night. My OH went to the gym, P1 was in bed and my parents also went to bed early. Leaving just P2 …

I’m Missing Out On Things

Look at the frown on that face!! P2 has become more reluctant to fall asleep in her bouncer or car seat. In fact she’s quite reluctant to fall asleep anywhere during the day. And when she eventually does, it’s for a quick half hour power nap… and that’s if we’re lucky! I don’t know if this is an age thing?! …

I Didn’t Invite You Aunt Flow?!

Aunt Flow decided to pay a visit. I’m not overly impressed at her unwelcome visits. This is the second visit I’ve had since P2s birth (not counting the 6 weeks I bled continuously). Don’t get me wrong a visit from AF means that I’m not pregnant and have working ovaries and womb – fantastic. However, I’m breastfeeding, exclusively so why …

To My Princesses – Letter 6

To my Princesses, I’m sorry I’m a little late in writing this. Wednesday, when you both celebrated your weekly milestones, we were very busy and by the time I got to bed it was just too late. This week has been great, we’ve had busy days and quiet days. P1 you have been in a normal routine with nursery and …

Guilt Ridden

I keep looking at P2 and realising how lucky I truly am. She’s perfect in every way, she’s healthy, she’s growing, she’s developing and she’s feeding. I frequently feel guilty about the luck that has been showered over us. So many women struggle, they struggle to conceive, they struggle to grow a baby, they struggle to feed, they struggle to …

Tap

I had my nails done… For the first time in years!!! My paid job, when I’m not on maternity leave or being a mum, is quite hard on your hands. I’d paint my nails and they’d be chipped the next day… Hence why I always changed my nail colour pretty much daily. Well that all stopped when I became a …

Baby Rug – Bug In A Rug Review

I was sent a special baby blanket from Baby Rug this week. I was uber excited to get using it. The weather has been really wonderful so this week we have been quite busy, giving me ample time to test the product out I was a bit concerned that the fleece type material would be too hot for P2 to wear …

Breast Feeding Support Group

I attended my first ever baby group this morning. It was a breast feeding support group. I don’t want to sound boastful, but I didn’t really need any support. My breast feeding experience has been pretty easy for the both of us, I have plenty of milk and P2 latches perfectly – the only niggle we’ve ever had was right at the …

Challenge Day#4

10AM – First need to raise my voice today, probably because I was hungry and completely not P1s fault that she was grating on me, level 3 for repeatedly telling me she was hungry, despite eating all her breakfast X2. 1PM – Had to firmly tell P1 that she was indeed going to go to her swimming lesson. Level 2 …

Fisher-Price Woodsy Friends Comfy Time Bouncer Review

I jumped at the chance of reviewing a Fisher-Price bouncer! With P1 I always found it such a struggle to find a bouncer that suited her needs – she was fussy! A basic, cheap bouncer didn’t settle her. A swinging one with music didn’t settle her. One that went from side to side, music and vibrations also, didn’t settle her. …

Cracked And Sore

Three days of breastfeeding my nipples became very cracked and sore. Every time P2 latched I’d wince in pain and suffer the whole feed just wondering how long I could cope with this before I was forced to give up. On day four, we visited my MiL and she suggested a nipple cream and that although expensive, Lansinoh was a great product. …

Sock Ons Review

I’ve lost count of the amount of socks I’ve lost during P1s life. So many times I’ve looked at her to find one foot absolutely freezing and the other nice and snug, that missing sock never to be found again. There’s definitely a sock monster lurking. One day when out shopping my mum found a new little invention called Sock Ons. At first …

Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

I’ve cried tonight. It’s amazing how the human body reacts to certain things. I read a blog post tonight about a lady going through one of my biggest fears. Cot death. Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Just writing those words makes me want to cry my eyes out, hold my daughters close. I like to know I can protect them from …

I don’t mean to upset anyone, these are my own opinions! Epidurals. (When asked for, not in emergency cases like caesareans) I’ve always been quite open to the idea of …

I’ve Just Got To Be Brave

Just a quick post this morning. I’m about to leave P2 for the first time since she was conceived!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s like a whole year ago! I’m so nervous. She’ll be in the fantastic, well experienced, loving hands of my MiL. Am I still nervous? YESSS! I don’t even know what exactly I’m nervous of. The emotions I’ll feel leaving her? …
