Outfit of the week

In the search for some new breastfeeding friendly clothes, I stumbled upon the website Shein. Stylish, on trend clothes and very reasonably priced.  I’m still waiting for the haul of things to arrive (the two downsides I’ve found so far is, your items come sporadically and take a very long time to arrive). But so far…

Outfit of the week 

As the weather has been so unpredictable and cold lately I’ve had to dig out clothes from my autumn/winter wardrobe. Summer hurry up please.  This black jumpsuit from Asos (from the Asos White collection) is perfect for this weather and really really easy to feed in as it has a zip down front. I wore a tshirt…

Welcoming baby number 2.. my birth story 

With my first baby, we were in the midst of renovating and moving house so I was in no rush for my monkey to make an appearance. Well this time being heavily pregnant with a toddler (who had just learnt to walk), and being more ‘prepared’ (if that’s even possible), meant that I was counting…

39 week bumpdate..

Okay, so by now I really really thought baby would have made an appearance! Don’t listen to people who tell you second babies come earlier, it’s nonsense!  I’m so eager to meet my baby and have them here with us now.. I’m anxious about the labour and want it out of the way, plus it’s…

What’s in my hospital bag? 

So this week I finally did the one thing I’ve been avoiding.. I packed my hospital bag! Or rather, my hospital bags, as just like last time I have a bag for me and a bag for the baby… Last time I did loads of research and spent loads of time deciding what to pack….

My post baby ‘coming home’ wish list.. 

Last time I gave birth we were so focused on getting the house and everything ready for the babies arrival,  I didn’t think much about after the labour and coming home!  So, this time I have put together a short wish list of things I’d like to come home to.. My husband is more than…

That’s one small step for man.. one giant leap for our household..

Something I’ve not really written about (and it’s not been intentional I’ve just been too busy to update and write about everything I’ve wanted to in the last few months) is my little monkeys slow progress when it comes to walking.  I’m so fed up of hearing the words.. “is he walking yet”.. people ask…

The end is near.. 35 week bumpdate

I’ve been pretty quiet updating my blog as we’ve spent the last few weeks sick with coughs, colds and generally feeling ill. We get better for a day or so, before catching another bug. The worse part is, your limited in medication when your pregnant. So yes, I’ve been feeling very sorry for myself lately,…

Our breastfeeding journey.. 

Breastfeeding was something I felt really strongly about. I was adamant it was what I was going to do and if you asked me a year ago I had strong views on why anyone would do anything differently. It’s so easy to have views on parenting choices when your not a parent!  Anyway, back to…

I think I have insomnia.. 

Every parent waits for the day that their baby finally ‘sleeps’. Of course all babies sleep, what I mean by this is you put them down at bedtime and don’t hear a peep out of them until morning.. bliss! Well I did my time and waited a whole 15 months for this day. At first…

Pregnancy and Sugary drinks! 

So I’m sat in the hospital waiting room having just had my blood test and a sugary drink. I now have to sit and wait for a minimum of TWO hours with a room full of pregnant women (eyeing up each other’s bumps), Jeremy Kyle and a rowdy child 😂.. oh and I can’t eat…

When your toddler learns the dreaded ‘M’ word..

My monkey has a new favourite word.. When he first said it I thought it was so cute and clever. He was eating his morning weetabix and had finished his last spoon and asked for ‘more’. What a clever boy I thought..  Fast forward a month and ‘more’ his deffo his fave word. He wants…
