My breastfeeding experience with Master E was far from perfect and only lasted two months, but I knew in the back of my mind I would have a second chance with my next child. When I was pregnant with Miss M, I couldn’t wait to try breastfeeding again. I felt confident, I was better informed, […]
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.
Skin on skin contact with both my babies has been one of my most favourite experiences, the connectedness I have felt is out of this world. But what I didn’t realise was the sheer power it has on a baby. Lois Wattis, Midwife, Nurse and Author says, “The skin of a newborn baby is extremely delicate […]
I’ve moved only once with a toddler and I think that’s a move I don’t want to do again in a while. Not only is there the challenge of having to pack and unpack with a toddler beside you wanting to do anything but and the whole change in environment and routine. I thought I’d […]
When we named both of our children, we considered many things. We considered pronunciations, uniqueness, meanings, whether they were names that could potentially be shortened or turned into nicknames. We’ve always liked names that you don’t come across often but that aren’t completely uncommon. The meaning of a name isn’t overly important but is a definite […]
It was when I took Miss M for her 2-month needles that I learnt about the term ‘poo diva’ from a lovely doctor. “So how’s everything going with Miss M?” the doctor asked. “Everything is going really well, except, she only poos every 5 days,” I replied. “Oh, so she’s a little poo diva is […]
In collaboration with Kids Business Communications and Nude Food Movers I hate to think how much plastic wrap and packaging we’ve consumed in our lifetime as a family, particularly when it comes to packed lunches and food in general. Actually, there are stats to indicate how much we’re likely to have used. The stats Australia […]
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 […]
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 […]
