Baby books – useful or useless?!

3 weeks before the little one arrived, a friend of mine gave me a pile of baby books she had lying around. I suddenly realised that this baby was nearly here and I hadn’t looked at a single book for advice! I read up on everything – so why not this?! I read a few […]

Christmas makes! 

Christmas is just around the corner and this year has been all change for us! No more evening trips to Selfridges or Liberty after work – oh no – maternity leave and a 4 month old means that 6pm is now the start of the bedtime routine. Oh how life has changed! The lead up […]

When teething strikes… 3 months! 

The drooling started around 10 weeks, but that was expected – lots of my friends babies had done the same thing. The start of the long process of teething!

My baby is no longer a newborn ?

My *positive* birth story! 

So, up until I gave birth to bubba (number 1), I was scared, very scared! It’s the unknown that makes it difficult, as you just haven’t experienced anything like it before and don’t know what to expect – it’s all new! Additionally, all you ever hear are the horror stories – days and days of […]

Newborn sleep – the truth! 

If you are anything like me, then you will have been very hung up on how much your baby sleeps at night, and expect it to get better week by week. But why? Why do we get so fixated on this? BABY BOOKS! So, I thought I’d get organised prior to the little man arriving […]

10 week old baby, when did that happen?! 

The past 10 weeks have been emotional, VERY emotional! I put that down to hormones, lack of sleep (I used to NEED 8 hours), a crying baby and no “me” time. Life was different to say the least…… I worked in London Town, did a 9-5 (and some weekends) job as a pharmacist at a […]
