Food Glorious Food

I’m really loving my food at the moment and my appetite is matching. I was doing so well on losing weight, toning up and feeling fantastic when I looked in the mirror. I even felt sexy if I’m honest. But the past few weeks I’ve been feeling down about breastfeeding and every time I look at the naked reflection staring …

Cow & Gate 100% Fruit Pouches Review

Unfortunately the USB was not compatible our operating system – Windows 8. The pouches are made from 100% fruit with added vitamin C. I do like to know that …

To My Princess 2 – 6 Months

To My Princess 2, I have absolutely no idea where the past 6 months have gone. You’ve achieved so much in that time and that means you are growing closer to your first birthday! You are a rolling, nearly sitting, smiling, laughing, bouncing, feet holding, strong minded, waving, eating, sleeping, cloth wearing beautiful little girl. This past month you have …

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 …

Baby Toilets

We are about 3 weeks in on our food weaning journey. I originally wanted to do baby led with the odd bit of purée. But things haven’t quite gone that way. Well, I suppose that it has been baby led in a way. P2 doesn’t seem to be able to pick food up and get it into her mouth. I …

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 …

Why Do We Have To Do This?

It seems we’ve hit another brick wall with P1. I hate this. Food is such an issue it’s ridiculous. You need food to survive. So why can’t she grasp the fact that she has to eat!! And that one or two mouthfuls just isn’t enough to sustain her. Breakfast is never an issue. She’ll happily have two helpings; a chocolate …

This Is The Life

We tried out a different play centre today. The Fun Factory. It has an indoor ice rink, indoor climbing wall, soft play for ages 0-13yrs and a sensory room. I’m still debating as to whether its better than our usual choice of play. I love that it has more of a variety for the children. I love the sensory option …

First Tastes, Highchair Needed Soon?!

This morning we gave P2 her first taste of something other than milk. She’s 18 weeks old, a little early than the newly recommended 26weeks, but considering I weaned P1 at 4 months I’m quite confident that having a little munch on something wouldn’t harm her. P2 was allowed to try a rusk. She absolutely loved it! Her gums munched …

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 …

Bank Holiday Fair

We always get to do something different when visiting my MiL. Always exciting. Today’s adventures was a summer fair. It was not what we expected. We thought it would be in a school field, few stalls and maybe a bouncy castle. But nope, there was a dog show, loads of stalls and several bouncy castles and inflatable stand. We enjoyed …

Chinese Meal

It was my Mums friend, now my friend too… I hope… Engagement party tonight. I felt a bit nervous about going as it was at a Chinese restaurant. I hate Chinese, the food not the people. It’s mainly because I’m such a fussy eater. I hate to try new things. Such a child. Well, we went along and had a …

Pinot Grigio

I’ve decided to start planning our wedding again. I stopped when everything went belly up, it felt like my dreams were crashing down around me and I didn’t want to get excited about anything. Everything went in the bin regarding our wedding day. But there’s absolutely no harm now, after all… One day we’ll have our wedding day! Last night, …

I’m Not Hungry

With growth tests looming, I’m trying to make sure P1 eats as much as she can. However, this is proving rather difficult with a child who seems to have an eating disorder. I’m petite, so P1 will never be a big girl but her appetite is appalling, and in all honesty worrying! I remember when she used to happily eat a …

DP – Five A Day

You’ve being exiled to a private island, and your captors will only supply you with five foods. What do you pick? I’m a very fussy eater. So here’s my 5 a day based on my tastes: 1) A banana – for energy to fight my captors. 2) Cherry Bakewell – we all need a bit of sugar. 3) Chicken – …
