Kids and sun protection I am absolutely paranoid about the sun and my kids. Whenever it comes to outside play or going to the beach, I am meticulous when it comes to sun protection. I think it all stems from my childhood, actually, more likely my teenage years. I played sports every weekend and also […]
As much as I'm not 100% keen on the term, yes, I guess you could call this a mummy blog because I am a mum and share my musings, experiences and thoughts on motherhood.
I'm definitely not about telling you how you should be raising your kids, I'm here to share my experiences, challenges and the occasional parenting tips in the hope that it is relatable and helpful because we all know how much pressure us mums put on ourselves!
I hope you enjoy scrolling through the numerous posts I have written over the years on motherhood, pregnancy, birth, toddler taming, childcare, postnatal depression, miscarriage, kids activities and more. And, I always love hearing from my readers too so feel free to drop a line.
Happy reading and thanks for dropping by.
Fly Babee Pram Cover Review Ever since reading that using a muslin wrap to cover my pram could be fatal, I’ve been second guessing myself doing it but haven’t really found a good alternative. Then there was the recent ‘brain fart’ moment I had where I was literally one push of a button away from booking a […]
In collaboration with Medela When I had Elliott back in 2011 I tried to be superwoman. I didn’t accept help from anyone because I felt it was a sign of weakness and showed some sort of inability to be a good mum (stupid, I know). The stress and exhaustion consumed me, but I still didn’t […]
Amidst all the positive body image movements everywhere, I don’t think there will ever be a point where I will 100% love and accept my post baby body. I try to accept and appreciate that I grew two tiny humans inside me, and what beautiful humans they are, but, I find myself aching to have […]
I don’t need to tell you how tough being a new mum is, particularly the newborn stage. Thank goodness this time around I’ve learnt to accept help and how important it is for my mental health to do so. With Master E, I was the complete opposite. I found it very hard to ask for […]
Apart from a few common complaints, my pregnancy was a time of great joy (when I wasn’t experiencing back pain or pelvic symphysis), excitement and anticipation. But when it came to sleep during pregnancy, I reckon Mr G was close to kicking me out of the bed and into another room. I’ve always been a […]
The idea of having a little “me” time is pretty mythical for us modern mums, isn’t it? But, I’m still hoping that time will come because I never underestimate the power of a well-earned break. It’s the perfect chance to de-stress, switch off and reset. My last break was in Sydney when I was 20 […]
This is part 1 of a two part series. This is a question that comes up a lot in my doula and hypnobirthing business. Women ask if I can work with their partner to ensure that he is the best that he can be. Partners (I’ll refer to them in this blog as “he or […]
When I had Elliott, I knew baby wearing was a big thing. I remember women being absolutely passionate about it but, to be honest, I didn’t quite get it and I didn’t get into it myself. I wish I did. There was a culmination of reasons as to why I didn’t get into babywearing. Firstly, […]
Back before having Mila, I remember searching for a baby gift box to send to my friend who was also expecting at the same time as me. I knew exactly what I had in mind and imagined what I wanted a baby gift box to look like. I wanted a gift that was stylish, something […]
