AN INTRODUCTION TO BABY LED WEANING

Baby-Led Weaning (BLW) is the process of weaning where you skip past the purée stage of traditional weaning and offer your baby smaller portions of your own food from the age of six months. BLW is focused on your baby experiencing real tastes and textures at the very beginning of their weaning journey.

POTTY TRAINING GUIDE

Whenever your little one is ready… …which may be soon, however don’t worry if they haven’t shown any interest in it just yet. Using a potty is a huge new skill to learn and it’s best to tackle it slowly and patiently (which will be hard sometimes!). Every little one is different, so don’t compare with other mums and children, it will all happen when it’s supposed too, we promise… Interestingly, most children can control bowels before bladders, so you may notice that; Around 1 year old, the night-time poos...

THE 10 ESSENTIAL NEWBORN BABY PRODUCTS THIS MUM RECOMMENDS

When we found out we were pregnant, we were half excited and half shocked.  I told a few of our closest family members but wanted to wait until our 12 week scan before we officially announced it to everyone else.  When we did announce it, the response we had was amazing but I definitely didn’t expect to be offered up so much advice so early on and to be told you need this and that and this and that! Oh and ‘I have this you can have’, ‘did you want... Read More

MY BABY HAD REFLUX AND IT NEARLY BROKE ME

The NHS states that “Reflux Is when a baby brings up milk, or is sick, during or shortly after feeding. It’s very common and usually gets better on its own”.

HOW DO YOU COPE AFTER LOSING YOUR BABY?

This is a question I have been asked many times since I gave birth to Leo this year following the death of his sister who was tragically stillborn at full term last year.

I honestly can’t give you an answer. I wish I could. I wish I could send you a big manual on how to keep going,... Read More

HEAR WHAT THE REAL TALKING NEW DADS HAVE TO SAY…

We often hear what it’s like to have a baby from a mum’s point of view, but not so much from the dad’s. We think it’s about time dads got more airtime! Dads play such a massive role in parenting nowadays – their role has arguably changed more than mums in the last decade or so. And we think it’s important to hear it from their point of view. Yeah, mums do A LOT but so do dads. We invited the dads to have their say, without their partners being... Read More

HEAR WHAT THE REAL TALKING NEW MUMS HAVE TO SAY…

Everyone will tell you having a baby is life changing… It’s the best of times and the hardest of times all rolled together into one big roller-coaster ride.  When you are pregnant so many people will tell you what you should and shouldn’t do and how it was for them years ago. Yet when you have your baby you will wonder why nobody told you so many things that would have prepared you better. We decided it would be good to hear it from new mums living the experience right...
