Siblings 2017 – October

It has been all about change this past month. The girls have been a teeny bit neglected and we’ve barely had any fun moments due to being consumed by decorating our new house in time for our move. But we some how made it to the other side alive. P1 doesn’t deal with change very well and this past month …

Siblings 2017 – August

Like I said in the July Siblings post, the chaotic way of life was definitely not going to subside any time soon and I was so right. We are now well in the swings of the school holidays. In fact although I am going slightly insane, they really are flying by in a blur! It feels crazy already that it …

Dodging The Rain & Having A Family Day

I have been feeling so much of that dreaded mum guilt lately. It sparks up the most at the weekends. We fill our weekdays with so many activities, trips to the shops, running arranges and getting the girls to various clubs that I sort of need the weekend as a break. It also becomes our cleaning time too. I always …

The mifold Grab & Go Booster

A few weeks ago we were sent two of the most advanced, compact and portable booster seats in the world, the mifold. Hubby was really excited by this as we have recently adapted our car from a five seater to a seven seater. Our boot seats are actually suitable to be used without a car seat (don’t ask me how …

ASDA Little Angels Day & Night Pants Review

The saying that every child is different, most definitely runs accurate in my house. We have three girls and each one of them is extremely different. Not only personality wise but with their developmental milestones too. P1 was very different, she was hitting things late due to her being premature and so things like crawling, walking and even toilet training …

Doona Review – Out and About with a New Baby

We were sent the Doona a few months ago to review. You can see our initial thoughts here. We’ve now been using it for three months and I’m struggling to remember how I coped with life with a baby twice before without having a Doona! As I said in the first post, the Doona is Isofix compatible however we’ve been using …

“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 …

“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 …

Sweet Dreamers Ewan The Dream Sheep Review

Regular readers will know that I’m an owner to a toddler that has struggled for 20 months to self-settle so I’ve been trying my hardest not to make the same mistakes with P3. I rarely allow her to fall asleep feeding and will always put her back in the SnuzPod at night. In all honesty P3 has been a fantastic …

“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 …

“P3 has smiled!”

On the 20th November 2014, at 7 weeks and 3 days old, P3 has smiled! It’s isn’t wind, although I was dubious at first, she’s actually smiling. Little smiles at the moment and I don’t think she has much control over it at the moment. That was the first one I managed to capture on camera, it’s slightly wonky and …

World Prematurity Day 2014 – My Premature Birth Story

Today is World Prematurity Day. Around the world each year 15 million babies are born too soon. In 2008, I was part of that statistic when I welcomed P1 7 weeks early. In that same year the idea came to raise awareness of the serious issues that these babies and their families face and so World Prematurity Day was born. …
