Book Review: Dr Dawn’s Guide to Toddler Health

September 2, 2016

As Little M grows older, I thought I’d find it easier to know what I’m supposed to do with her. I mean, I’ve learned how to change her nappy, wash her and can generally tell when she’s tired or hungry. In actual fact, I find that I’m googling more than ever to find out what to expect next. Last week, I reviewed Dr Dawn’s Guide…

Exclusively Expressing: Three Months In

August 29, 2016

Little M turned three months old last week. I’m proud to say that I’m still exclusively expressing breast milk for her, and still haven’t had to feed her any formula. I know this might not seem like a big deal to some people, as I know that there are others out there who have expressed for eighteen months plus. I know that some people might…

Review & Giveaway: Dr Dawn’s Guide to Your Baby’s First Year

August 26, 2016

Not to mention the rather overwhelming, seemingly endless visits in those first weeks from midwives and the health visitor; and then you somehow have to get yourself and your baby out of the house…

The 12 Week Immunisations

August 22, 2016

Little M had her 12 week immunisations today. She’s actually just turned 13 weeks but I rescheduled last week’s appointment as we had to travel down to Somerset last week for a friend’s wedding. After the all-day screamathon we experienced after the first set of immunisations Little M had at eight weeks, there was no way I’d risk putting her in a car for a…

Five things I’ve learned about travelling with a baby

August 20, 2016

After writing all about our packing escapades on Monday, I thought I’d share what we learned from four days away with Little M. At the very least it might save one reader a bit of time/space in the car! 1) We shouldn’t have bothered taking the Snüzpod. Despite Little M sleeping through for several nights before we went away, we discovered after several sleepless hours…
