5 Things Made Easier With A Babymoov Up & Go Booster

I have never ever ever had a travel high chair or booster seat so was really interested to see how I would put the Babymoov Up & Go Booster Seat through it’s paces as for the previous 6 years I have never needed one. We’ve had it for a few months now and I’m pleased to say that we are …

“She has a tongue-tie”

I’m 99% sure that P3 is teething. She’s suddenly become a dribbling wreck and is quite partial to a bit of finger munching… My fingers and hers. Whilst on a little session of chewing my finger I felt something familiar. A tongue-tie just like mine. Obviously, I’m no doctor but it played on my mind a bit. I’ve lived with …

“My breastfeeding experiences are over”

It’s been over two weeks since we breastfed. Just under two weeks since I last expressed milk. It’s gone. My milk is gone and therefore my breastfeeding experiences are over. I didn’t shed any tears about stopping. Deep down I knew this was the right choice. My body is returning to normal. A heavier, chubbier normal but still normal. My …

“We are now 13 days since we last breastfed”

The morning after I had wrote about P3s slow weight gain I woke up at about 2am and sterilised some bottles. She’d been restless and squirming and my boobies for a while and it was upsetting me. The whole situation was upsetting. I felt completely useless. I received many helpful advice from the health professionals and from fellow blogging friends, but I …

MAM Starter Set & Soother Pod Review

For P1 & P2 we used Tommee Tippee. Whether it was bottles, cups, spoons, soothers or even the steriliser – it was always Tommee Tippee. So when we recently decided to bottle feed P3 there was no question as to what we’d be using… or was there?! P3 point blank refused the Tommee Tippee bottles. Reluctantly, I dusted off the …

“The only positive is that it’s a gain and not a loss”

I felt so nervous waking up this morning. P3 was due to get weighed again to check the weight gain situation. I’ve been trying really hard to get more feeds into one day, I’ve been eating and drinking better too. I woke the poor little lady up from her nice cosy slumber in her Doona and took her inside the …

“During the day we have no issues”

I didn’t expect to have problems feeding this time round. With P2 it had all gone pretty smoothly but with the weight gain falling heavy on my mind the past few days I’ve been questioning my ability. I’ve done a lot of Googling and the support I’ve had via Instagram, Twitter and Facebook has been astounding but I still can’t …

“P3s weight gain is not good, in fact it’s awful!”

At the 6 week checkup P3s weight had dipped slightly. It wasn’t a huge concern because she’d just been ill and on antibiotics. Then today, we visited the health clinic for a weigh in and to see the health visitor. That’s when it smacked us right in the face. P3s weight gain is not good, in fact it’s awful! This …

Tommee Tippee – Best Of British Limited Edition Bottle Review

My hubby is known for researching and researching and researching before he makes any decisions. Whether it’s checking out the internet for a better deal on a tumble dryer he’s seen or learning how something works. When we found out we were pregnant with P2 I’d already decided alone that we’d be using Tommee Tippee bottles, but when hubby also …

KBBF 2014 – The Benefits Of Breastfeeding

It’s National Breastfeeding Awareness Week (20-26th June 2014) and just like last year I’m joining in with the Keep Britain Breastfeeding Scavenger Hunt. Last year I wrote a post every day but considering I’m not currently breastfeeding and the fact it’s coinciding with Britmums Live, I’ve decided to do just two posts. When I look back to the very first …

Funky Giraffe Bib Review

Typically, bibs are a must have accessory to weaning and feeding times. I personally rarely used them. I figured that kids will get messy and nothing can be so bad that our washing machine can’t handle – right?! With baby led weaning fully established and P2 being nearly 14 months old we’ve started to allow her to feed herself her …

Fisher-Price Feeding Range Review

P2 has always been a very independent eater and absolutely loves and embraces her food. As you all know, I’m a huge fan of Fisher-Price and was rather excited when they told me about their new feeding range being launched on 24th March! We’ve been putting some of the range to test. The Learn-to-Hold spoons are brilliant!! They feature bending …

My Milk Has Gone

It’s gone. And I’m devastated. I knew this time would come, especially the past few weeks where I’ve noticed significant changes in our feeding patterns and my boobs. But tonight, it’s gone. I’ve used the last of my expressed milk too, except one frozen bag that I have round my MiLs which will be sent to make a keepsake. I …

Is This The End Of My Breastfeeding Journey?!

I’m quite upset that I’m writing this post in a way. I think we are about ready to end our breastfeeding journey. Well not completely anyway. It’s been about a month of weaning now, P2 is now on three meals a day which is usually half a jar. We’ve had no problems except the one toilet trouble during the first …
