To My Princess 3 – 2 Months

To my Princess 3, It’s just zooming past. I think that your rough start may have slowed down some of your development things but you’re finally getting there. You’ve been smiling for about a week now and it’s so cute. It’s a very odd smile, one side goes up and then the other side but the happiness and joy in …

Everyone needs tips. Tips help people that are struggling with something, try something a little different that they never even thought of. I've compiled my top 10 tips; 1) Wind Your Baby I had never actually properly breastfed P1, so this time it was all new. I asked the nurses what I should be doing and they very clearly said …

Half Way

It’s the 1st of the 6th month in 2013 and I thought I would reflect on the resolutions I made at the beginning of the year. My 13 Goals for 2013: 1) Become a mother of two I had no choice in this one really, and I’m so happy and proud of my girls. 2) Conquer breastfeeding I’m pleased to …

Building Up A Supply

I’ve been quite relaxed about expressing my breast milk. But now P2 is 16 weeks old I know that the weaning stage is right around the corner. My OH and I have agreed to wait until she’s at least 6 months before she starts on baby rice. Even though I weaned P1 at 4months. I read on the back of …

Co-Sleeping In The News

My Twitter and Facebook have gone absolutely crazy about co-sleeping. The news has come out with yet another report about it. I feel quite angry about it all – there’s so many different views on co-sleeping and parenting that it’s hard to know what you’re meant to do with your baby. I co-sleep. Not all the time, but more often than not. …

Sweet Dreams

((Quick reminder that I am on Twitter and also on Facebook so getting following/liking)) Since having P2 I’ve posted about how she only poops every few days. Well today was that day. When she has her clear out it’s always quite a mess. When wearing disposables it would leak out of her nappy in all directions, onto her vest and …

DP – Feed Your Senses

Write down the first sight, sound, smell, and sensation you experienced on waking up today. Pick the one you’re most drawn to, and write. (For a bigger challenge, pick the one you’re least drawn to.) I laughed when I read my DP email today. Absolutely perfect. This morning: Well, I woke facing away from my OH, my first sight was …

Touch Me

It’s so crazy how grown up P2 is becoming and so fast she’s doing it! In the past few days she’s really begun to touch things, hold things and bite things – uh oh! Don’t worry, she isn’t suffocating herself… Yesterday, she was absolutely fascinated by my OHs top. Staring intensely at it, trying to reach forwards to grab it. …

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 …

Boobie Milk

A few days ago I was convinced I had a problem with my milk supply. I was terrified! My boobs felt really empty, I wasn’t getting that “filling” feeling, and P2 was feeding more often and not really sleeping. Even more to my worry is that I’ve only been expressing about 2oz and that’s a total amount. Turns out, I …

To My Princesses – Letter 5

To my Princesses, It really feels like we haven’t stopped this past week! I started a challenge to help with the amount of shouting I do, and that’s also had quite an impact this week. I really want to be the best Mummy I can be and I know I fail at it, especially recently. I have got into more …

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 …

In My Bra

I’ve reviewed Lansinoh previously because I love their boobie products. I’ve been using their Breast pads for the past month. I’d been given a box and then they were on offer so I bought another box. They come in a box of 60. All individually wrapped (one packet is one pad). They are disposable. They have two adhesive strips. Stay …
