Being a Parent ‘changes you’

The amount of times before a baby people said that having a baby would make you see things differently or that your priorities would change! I would think, maybe for you but not me! I will be exactly the same, there’s nothing in my life that would need to change, well I was wrong! Here…

Pets and Babies

Giving up my cat and dog was never an option! Our pregnancy was planned and if I thought I would have had to give up my pets I would have waited to get pregnant! When we had our baby our dog did stay away for a week. I had no sleep and was too tired…

Mum Bod and Me Part 2.

The wedding where I am bridesmaid is… 21 days away! Oh my goodness since the last blog I have… gained weight and probably lost double that in hair! Oh dear oh dear! I tried on my dress and it is beautiful but I definitely need to do something to feel more confident for the day…

Open University and a Newborn

I will explain my story and hopefully answer some questions you might have about studying yourself! (Revising with my boy!) In 2008 I started a degree course in Children’s Nursing, due to 1000 reasons… Looking back now my undiagnosed chronic illness probably played a large part… I ended up with a Diploma in Children’s Nursing…

Show Off Mums – Let’s choose to be honest instead!

Now with show off mums you can find them anywhere! In my own experience they are usually on Instagram or Facebook rather than in person! I often find they try to cloak the show off-ism into a question on the Facebook groups I am in, some recent favourites… Baby has only just learnt to roll,…

My Mum Bod and Me

People who say breastfeeding helps you lose weight lie! I am so hungry from feeding little man that I never stop eating! And even if I wasn’t feeding him and getting hungry from it, I am so tired I am eating to stay awake through the nights! I thought as soon as I hit 6…

Breastfeeding my little Beast

As previously stated the first few days on hospital we’re stressful! Everyone had so many different opinions on how was best to feed that I was overwhelmed and ended up trying to please the specialists rather than doing what was comfortable which let to quite alot of pain and a unhappy baby! Once I was…

My Life as a Mum in the first few days…

  So, where to start, my husband and I had a baby boy this February and although it has only been two months our lives have changed completely! I gave birth to my baby boy after the weirdest labour ever… to elaborate… turns out when they say that if you can talk through contractions ‘they…

National Breastfeeding Week

It’s one of those things, you are so proud you are able to feed your baby by yourself and I can’t describe the hormones when you are feeding them (As long as they aren’t twisting while still holding your nipple in their mouth or trying to fit their fist and your nipple in at the…

A Week of Sleep

What you can see above is my feeding chart from the Baby Tracker App. At night time it’s basically my sleep schedule, becuase when I’m not feeding in the night I’m sleeping! The back story to how I got my week of sleep… I got told that babies like a schedule and to be read…
