Toddler snacks


Snacks – just how many can one toddler put away? I’m sure they eat every hour or so as a toddler – god knows where they put it all. I’m one of these mean mummies who hasn’t started giving anything that has sugar in yet (cakes / biscuits / ice cream), so  I try to steer towards snacks that use…

From teething to brushing – our journey so far!


TEETHING hit us very early on when the little man’s first tooth came through at 3 months old! We had a few products that really helped us with the early teething journey, which can be found in one of my earlier blog posts. One of those products was the Brush-baby teether which we ended up using for absolutely ages! It was great…

A weekend in the New Forest


It was supposed to be a weekend in Paris, but, in true working mum style, i’d left it till the last minute to book tickets, and prices were extortionate! So, I needed a plan B. We needed a weekend away, and as it was in between our birthdays, and Father’s day weekend coming up, it was the perfect time. I…

Working mums don’t work as hard? HA!


Until I went back to work after having a child, i’ll admit, it did annoy me (just a little bit) that certain people got to leave on time every day, didn’t have to participate in the late rota, and therefore I (wrongly) perceived this as them having it ‘easy’. Fast forward to me now being a mum, and having to…

Being a working mum is no walk in the park………! Sometimes I think i’m mad for going back full time, especially on the days i’m tired and sleep deprived……. BUT, I always try to sleep on it and (usually) always feel much better the next day, remembering why I decided to go back. Whilst on maternity leave, thinking about what…

Snuggle Sac – the genius sleeping solution!


I first heard about Snuggle Sac when the nursery asked me to purchase one. The little man had been sleeping in the cot at nursery for his naps, but he was moving up to the next room and they no longer used cots. ‘Uh-oh’ were my first thoughts…… he’d always slept in a cot – how was he ever going…

2017 – a reflection


2017, You were a busy old year for me. You were the first full year I spent with my little boy, you were the year where I spent half of the year on maternity leave and the other half back at work, you were the year where my stress levels got to levels they hadn’t reached before, and in the…

Maternity leave – expectations vs reality


Now that i’m coming to the end of my first maternity leave, it’s safe to say that some of the expectations I had for my “year off” were VERY unrealistic and dreamy!   Expectation: Lots of time to watch box sets Reality: I think I have managed one box set in the early days after giving birth, whilst breastfeeding *constantly*,…

Yes, i’m planning to return to work – FULL TIME…….


Halfway into my maternity leave I was approached by my boss about an opportunity that was coming up – someone was leaving to do a long term secondment, and they had thought of me as a potential candidate. I was made up that they’d thought of me, especially seeing as I was on maternity leave! The job would be a promotion,…
