Breastfeeding in pregnancyย 

Disclaimer.. this is ANOTHER post about breastfeeding, so if you have no interest in the topic feel free to skim past this one!  Yes you read it right, breastfeeding and pregnancy can go hand in hand. Before being a mum, I wouldn’t have had a clue about whether it was possible to breastfeed when pregnant….

10 Tried and tested ways to get your newborn to sleep

I think almost every new mum has a few moments of madness where they just CANNOT get their baby to sleep despite trying everything in the world. And when they finally do sleep you run to the loo, put the kettle on, put some laundry on, then sit down to drink your cup of tea…..

My secret to 2 under 2

So last week, my oldest monkey turned 2. I won’t talk about how I feel about it all in this post, as that’s an essay in itself! But, I officially no longer have 2 little monkeys under 2. My biggest little boy turning 2 has made me reflect on the last few months. I’ve talked…

Product review..The breastfeeding sleepshirt..

Any breastfeeding mum will have come across this struggle at some point in their nursing life. You wake up to do the night feed and your pjs annoy your baba by flapping in their face and they get further annoyed by you taking so long fumbling around in the dark to lift your pjs up….

Outfit of the week

So this weekend we have faced a new dilemma.. what to wear during a heatwave that is breastfeeding friendly and minimises two sweaty bodies making each other even more sweaty ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.  I will save you all from witnessing what I’ve been wearing this past weekend, so here is an outfit from earlier on in the…

Outfit of the week

So this week we had yet another wedding meaning another ‘formal’ feeding friendly outfit to find. As I didn’t have time to get to the shops, I had massss of online deliveries arrive all week, and finally caught a moment when both babies were napping to try it ALL on and settled for this lovely…

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 weekย 

So this week we attended a wedding and I had the dilemma of what to wear that I could also easily breastfeed in (and hide my mum tum in ๐Ÿ˜‚).  I found this lovely wrap dress from River Island.. as it was wrapped at the front it was easy to feed in without having to take…

Outfit of the week

I’m loving Zara at the minute, resulting in lots of late night online shopping binges during night feeds but not knowing what will or won’t suite my new postpartum shape means I’ve made multiple trips into town already to return most of it ๐Ÿ˜‚.  One item I did keep was this colourful shirt blouse, which was so…

Outfit of the week..

Are any other new mums struggling with their new post pregnancy shape?? I certainly am! Also uber bored of all my old clothes and my old ‘breastfeeding friendly’ pieces. This, coupled with the fact I barely have time to shower and get dressed and look sooo drained from the lack of sleep, is making me…

My postpartum survival must haves.ย 

So you have your hospital bag all packed and ready, the baby bag is ready, and your nursery all set up. But as a first time mum you can easily overlook preparing what you will need post baby, I know I did first time round resulting in my sister making daily trips to the supermarket…..

Our breastfeeding journey..ย 

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…
