Cloth nappies: an honest run down of the first week

If you’re anything like me the thought of cloth nappies is a tad overwhelming and it can be tough knowing where to start. I looked into them a few times over the years but just felt like it confused me more. So as a complete novice myself […]

self improvement: 5 things i’m working on

self improvement: 5 things i’m working on

I feel like my role as a parent has changed now I have 2, of course having another baby does that but I think more because I now have a daughter. I’ve always tried to better myself and been conscious of how I come across […]

the limit: knowing when to stop

the limit: knowing when to stop

For the first time I can remember, I hit my limit. I don’t mean after a crappy day or the kids being a challenge but actually feeling like if my brain processed anything else I was going to shut down. It was a weird feeling. […]

breastfeeding (round 2)

breastfeeding (round 2)

I’ve been pretty fortunate with breastfeeding in terms of physically managing to do it, many times I’ve seen questions in Facebook groups about latches or blog posts mentioning tongue tie and been thankful I haven’t come across those issues. With that being said, even if […]

the dreaded potty training

the dreaded potty training

Potty training… this was probably my most dreaded step with Abel, I was SO nervous and had no idea where to start. Looking back I don’t really know how we done it, we kinda just let him do it which I think was the best […]
