TJ Hughes Wooden Children’s Beds

My hubby will roll his eyes when he reads this post. I’m always moaning about the size of our very beautiful little house. When we first moved in we shared the big bedroom with P2. Which worked well until P2s sleep decreased to an unbearable state. It was clear we were waking her up by coming to bed, moving about …

Christmas Day 2013

This is the first year in my whole entire life that I haven’t been with my Mum, Nan and Grandad on Christmas! After the mad unwrapping session with the girls this morning I think it really hit me. So much has changed this past year, the biggest and worst change of all was the loss of my Nan.   She …

“The past three nights have been awful”

It seems that I’ve been fortunate enough to catch a cold right when both my girls have forgotten the meaning of sleep/bedtime. The past three nights have been awful. It started with P2 waking every half hour-hour. Then it was P1 who was awake really early waking her sister up. These two sleepless nights meant my immune system has been …

“This weekend has got off to a really, really rocky start”

This weekend has got off to a really, really rocky start and the stupid thing is, the morning I’ve had is probably perfectly normal and average to most families with young children. P2 woke me up at 5:51am. This woke P1 up too but I fed P2 her bottle and explained to P1 that it was too early to wake …

“Something’s up with P2 tonight”

Something’s up with P2 tonight. I can’t quite put my finger on it. She did her usual “I want to go to bed” signs of only wanting me, resting her head on me and getting very emotional. So I did the usual – bum change, pjs on, GroBag on, placed in cot and have her milk feed. That’s when the …

“I’m kicking myself for swapping the rooms around to be honest”

I don’t know how we managed to co sleep for 6 months. I’m a complete lover of co sleeping don’t get me wrong. Back when P2 was more of a potato and breastfeeding, it was easier and it actually meant we got more sleep between us! It’s been terrible the past week. I’ve not slept from fear of P2 choking …

Crawlerz Anti-Slip Safety Pink Romper Review

P2 still isn’t crawling. I say still but she’s probably not even reached the average age. She’s coming up to 9 months. It just feels like this milestone is taking forever to reach. I was delighted to receive a romper from Crawlerz a few weeks ago. P2 has been living in it whenever she’s at home. If it’s not in …

“This transition is going to be huge whatever we decide”

We had a visit from the sleep specialist. The things she told us are standard things; controlled crying, own room, no milk at night, no talking after bedtime and keep to the same thing each night. I can do all of that. It’s just finding the will power, the support and the energy. We’ve taken on board the own room …

To My Princess 1 – 4 Years 10 Months

To my Princess 1, I cannot believe how much you have grown this month. Not height wise, intelligence wise. You are reading! It takes time but you are actually reading most words. You sound out each letter to help you form each word. You’ve been picked on at school a couple of times recently which broke my heart. You kept …

“my hubby has suggested he sleep on the sofa”

Right back when P2 was under 4months old is where the root of our problem lies. Right back when I jinxed our life! I praised and boasted about how well she slept, only waking once and on a bad night twice. Yup, that’s where the problem began! Last night was so awful that my hubby has suggested he sleep on …

“The motivation for it just isn’t there at the moment”

I’m really struggling this week to get out of bed. The motivation for it just isn’t there at the moment. Last week was absolutely fine. My routine was this; 6:45am wake up, have shower, put dressing gown on, give P1 her breakfast at 7:15am, do washing up, tidying up, get P1 into her school uniform, let her watch some telly, …
