A Baby and Chronic Illness

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…

A Baby and My Mum Bod

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…

A Baby and Mum Shaming

I was talking to Joanacapelo about all the different times we had personally experienced shaming when out and about or even online! Sometimes I think the mum Facebook groups can be just about shaming other mums! Here are some examples of topics that I’ve seen causing controversy through my own experience!

A Baby and Having a Bath

I am currently on maternity leave with my 10 week old baby and I thought I would be chilling my days away, getting fit (I even got the spin bike out the garage HA) and making meals ready for my husband when he got home, but being a new mum is hard! Little man can…
