“I better wipe the tears and get on with housework”

My OH has gone to London today, P1 has gone to my grandparents house and I’m at home with P2. Massaging my lumpy boob and watching P2 play with the label on our dinner tray. It’s been 48 hours since I last fed my girl by boobie. I was absolutely fine about it, until now, where I have time to …

“it’s not like I’d go and ask for a boob job or anything”

I think the last time I spoke about my breastfeeding journey was with this post and I just wanted to update everyone that may be interested. For nearly about three weeks I’ve been feeding boobie to P2 after her dinner all the way until her breakfast. She’s been having formula during the day. It’s been going quite well really, she’ll …

Walkers Crisps Mighty Lights Review

It’s very rare for us to buy branded food at the moment with saving for a mortgage, wedding shopping and having two young children to feed. So it was fantastic when I was asked to taste test some more Walkers products. 18 packets of crisps arrived for us to munch. Another new product from the brains of Walkers, Mighty Lights. …

Fisher-Price Grow-With-Me Highchair Review

I was very excited when I was asked to review a high chair for Fisher-Price. Especially as it’s completely brand new and not many have had the chance to even see it yet! We were fast approaching the weaning stages. My OH fixed all the pieces together. It was very straightforward and took no time at all. I always like …

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

I was very excited to receive some tasty goodies for P2. Cow & Gate sent us a lovely package of pouches which arrived just in time for our holiday last week. 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 …
