I’m a Slumber-Roo Brand Ambassador

In my little blogging world, the new year hasn’t started off to shabby. For the duration of 2015, I will be a Brand Ambassador for Slumber-Roo! This is such an exciting new step for me and for my blog. I’m relatively new to baby wearing. P1 wasn’t. P2 was carried every now and then but P3 does spend a lot …

To My Princess 2 – 1 Year 11 Months

To my Princess 2, We had a magical Christmas. It was the first one you understood and were able to enjoy. You was so well behaved on P1s birthday and didn’t get upset about her opening presents when you couldn’t then on Christmas Day you opened and appreciated each present. It was lovely to watch. I can’t believe you’ll be …

“P2s tantrums are beyond bearable”

The girls have swapped roles. P1 and P2 that is. I’ve wrote many posts about how naughty P1 is and how I don’t know what to do, and generally P2 has always been happy and well behaved. This past week or so we’ve seen some huge, horrible changes in P2. P2s tantrums are beyond bearable. She does the throwing on …

To My Princess 3 – 3 Months

To my Princess 3, It’s crazy that three months have now passed since you entered the world so dramatically. It’s hard to imagine my life without you. I’ve seen a real change in you the past month. You are exactly like a real baby now. So alert and awake! You are completely obsessed with your hands and fingers. Sometimes you …

To My Princess 1 – 6 Years

To my Princess 1, I can’t believe where all these years are disappearing to. I have to admit it does feel like such a long time ago that you were that tiny premature baby fighting for life. You keep asking me if by being six it’ll mean you’ll be big as in tall. I have to keep reminding you that …

Papoozle Baby Carrier Review

I’m small. I go on about it over and over again. It has its advantages and it has disadvantages. One of the disadvantages is that I struggle to baby wear. To date, I have owned and tried three baby carriers, two of these worked nicely for P2 but the same ones just aren’t working with P3. Our fourth baby carrier …

To My Princess 2 – 1 Year 10 Months

To my Princess 2, For a while now we’ve been saying “she’s nearly two” or “aged 2-3” or “terrible twos come early”. Writing your age again has hit me just how grown up you really are for it. You’re only a year! Not two. You are cheeky. Each day you do the most hilarious things like faces, actions and words. …

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 …

“It was traumatic for all involved”

It is just totally upsetting to watch toe exclusively breastfed 8 week old daughter scream, squirm and be so unsettled from her night feeds. This is what happened last night. P3 normally wakes in the evenings from 6ish to 10ish. She’ll usually take a quick 5 minutes or so, we’ll head upstairs where she gets changed and swaddled, she then …

6 Week Check Up and Body Image Problems

We had our six week check up today. I was asked whether my bleeding had stopped, which it has about two days ago, apparently it takes longer for a breastfeeding mother to finish the post-partum bleeding which I found quite interesting to know. I was asked how the feeding was going and how my breasts are, well I think my …

A Third Child “Brings No Extra Joy” Is this true?

A new study by the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) shows that the birth of a first and a second child briefly increases the level of their parents’ happiness, but a third does not. I read the article several times over the social media platforms. Having just given birth to my third it got me thinking. Am …

“I’d forgotten how painful after-birth pains were”

I’d forgotten how painful after-birth pains were. I’ve been topped up on painkillers since the moment P3 was born. Every midwife or nurse that I spoke to at the hospital had said something along the lines of “oh yes especially with your third” when I told them how I was feeling. Great!!! The pains feel like extremely bad period pains, …

To My Princess 1 – 5 Years 9 Months

To my Princess 1, You’ve started your second year at school. It’s crazy to think you are now a Year 1 pupil. You seemed to settle quite well at the start of school and your behaviour had really improved. But after a couple of weeks and us agreeing to an after school club once a week, your behaviour deteriorated drastically …

LamaLoLi My Little Pony PJ Set & Top Review

When P1 was born I went over the top with buying clothes. Especially when I started work and was earning for myself. The nursery used to laugh and joke that they’d never seen P1 in the same outfit twice, which was slightly embarrassing in a way as she attended nursery three times a week! P2 has been a totally different …
