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. You are then sat up half naked for the good part of an hour, or you fall asleep nursing and spend the rest of the night freezing with half your top up and half down.
Well ladies, I have discovered something which will revolutionise nighttime nursing for you.. the breastfeeding sleepshirt by Daisypops.
The sleepshirt has sleeves to keep your shoulders warm (one of the reasons I hate wearing vests to bed is I spend most of the night with my shoulders out of the duvet..), and a simple split across the front of the top so you can pop your baby on your chest and feed away without having to fumble around in the dark and without freezing to death.
It’s also great for loungewear when your in the house (especially in the postpartum early days)  but want to be in something comfy that is still practical to feed in. In fact I love mine so much I have been using it out of the house as it’s just so easy to feed in! It has been a godsend when leaving the house in this mini heatwave! 

The material is lovely and soft and it comes in 7 lovely colours and the lovely people at daisypops now ship to the UK! I was super impressed that my top arrived in less than a week. The shirt costs approx £27 and is worth every penny as even though it’s summer here in the U.K. the weather cannot make its mind up so some nights are freezing and some nights boiling hot and I hate being cold at night.

The pro’s for me are fuss free feeding, no more cold shoulders at night, and super discrete feeding if you wear it out the house. I’m not usually a fan of nursing clothes as they don’t usually look good, but this sleepshirt has been really well made with lovely quality cotton and I felt great wearing it and it’s going to come in handy so much during winter night feeds.

 
Check out the different colours available here and thank me later 🙂 


Lovely Rebecca at Daisypops sent me this sleepshirt to try out and review but all views are my own. 

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 😂. 

One item I did keep was this colourful shirt blouse, which was so easy to feed in. I wore a vest underneath for OUOD and fed discreetly. You could also just undo the buttons. It’s loose so perfect to hide my new mum tum! Also wearing some ‘mum fit’ trousers from zara. So I didn’t look like I was on my way to the office with two babies in tow, I opted for some causal pastel with rose gold detailed leather Converse shoes 😍. 

My postpartum survival must haves. 

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.. bless her. 

Second time round I was more prepared and it’s made a massive difference so I thought I’d share my postpartum survival must haves with you all.. 

  1. Nipple cream.. I used Lanisoh. It’s pricey at around £10 a tube but so worth it. The early days of breastfeeding are extremely hard, and I don’t think anyone prepares a first time mum for how painful it really will be. This little purple tube, takes some of that pain away.
  2. Maternity Pads.. first time round I certainly wasn’t prepared for the amount of bleeding and length of time this would continue. I think I only brought a couple of packets of pads. You will need more, a whole lot more, so stock up! Boots usually have a 3 for 2 on maternity products, and I found these ultra slim ones to be the best. While your doing an online shop, you might as well pick up number 3 & 4 too..
  3. Disposable bed mats.. great for when your waters break (not saying your psychic and will know when this will happen but if your in early labour you could prepare), and for using for the first few weeks post baby,  these are great for savouring your bedsheets. 
  4. Disposable briefs..you may think why?! But, you won’t have time for loads of laundry and you can keep spares on hand in the bathroom as you may get through a few a day and I just found using these easier and less faff in the first week or two while the bleeding was very heavy (nobody told me about how much I would bleed?!). Again, I got these from the boots maternity section. You can find them here
  5. Nursing tanks.. or nursing friendly pjs.. this will make nursing throughout the night so much easier. With my first I wore baggy shirts which was a faff and you end up annoying your newborn as your top waves around their face. A nursing tank or buttoned pjs make such a difference. 
  6. Spare pjs to hand! The amount of times I’ve been puked on, my milk has leaked and even poo’d on during the night is unreal. Keep some spare pjs out, especially if like me, your clothes are all kept in your spare room where your visitors are sleeping 😂. 
  7. Water! It’s crazy how thirsty you get when your up at night, especially if you are a nursing mum. I keep a big bottle of water and a glass on my bedside table so I don’t have to get up during the night. 
  8. A breast pump! This was particularly useful as a first time mum as I leaked and felt ‘full’ a lot in the early days. It hasn’t been as bad second time around, but I found a pump really helped to relieve the pain and fullness. I really do want to start pumping more his time and trying my little munchkin on a bottle so I can catch a break every so often.. it’s just finding the time to pump for this seems impossible.. sighs. 
  9. Nappy stations.. This has been vital with a toddler and a baby about. I used to do all nappy changes in the nursery with my older monkey but it’s not simply possible to leave what you are doing and head upstairs as I can’t leave my oldest downstairs alone for a second. So I’ve set up a ‘nappy station’ downstairs with both boys nappy essentials and lots of spare clothes, and two more upstairs in different rooms. This has helped a great deal when my newborn has needed a whole outfit change and I have two screaming babies to deal with. Everything is right there on hand! 
  10. Sleepyhead. When your a first time mum you can easily get carried away with paraphernalia aimed to give you the ‘perfect baby experience’. I’m not one to get carried away with this and we have barely brought anything new for baby number 2.. BUT I can’t recommend the Sleepyhead enough. It’s worked a treat with both my boys, and allowed me to put them down as soon as they are asleep. My newest monkey did still resist being put in it for the first four or five days but soon got used to it with some persistence. This would be my number one baby item if I could have only one thing in the world.. 

So that’s my top ten things for making the early weeks just a little bit easier.. what are your just have things/ hacks for the first few weeks? Would love to know..

    My new diaper bag

    When I first started to think about my ‘must have’ items for baby number 2’s arrival, top of my list was a new nappy bag. I had long given up on my Pacapod, it was hard to adjust, didn’t fit as a rucksack and was too small. I knew I would need a bigger bag with more room to carry essentials for both babies so off I went on the hunt for a new mum bag! 

    With a toddler who was reluctant to walk and a newborn, I knew that it was essential that I had my hands free, and so I was set on getting a rucksack. The other factors I considered were  practicality of organising and fitting everything in (the pods concept in the pacapod just didn’t work for me), and style as I still want to look half decent sometimes! 

    I was pretty much set on getting a Tiba + Marl. They make stylish mum bags and you’d never guess they were for storing nappies at first (or second) glance. I originally opted for the quilted Elwood but didn’t love the fabric, so I switched it for the Elwood in black. It’s pricey at £130 but I justified the purchase by reminding myself that I had barely brought any new things for baby number two! 

    I’ve only been using it for 7 weeks but I love it already. It’s super lightweight even packed full with essentials for both babies, it has various compartments and pockets to make it easy to organise, a built in shoulder bag/purse for my essentials (keys, money, phone & lippy) and it looks G R E A T! 

    I don’t fumble around trying to find what I need in a mad panic, as I have everything organised in the different sections, this is so helpful when I have two little monkeys causing chaos. It’s big enough to carry extra everything’s so I don’t have to repack my bag every time we go out. So far I love it and love the way it looks and I’m so glad I decided to treat myself. As always, il leave you with some pics.. 


    Our first outing with a newborn & toddler 

    Having spent two weeks cooped up indoors since my little munchkin arrived, I’ve been feeling increasingly sorry for my biggest boy, who is getting more and more bored at home on the days he is not at nursery. Don’t get me wrong he still gets the majority of my attention, apart from when I’m feeding my newborn (which often takes over an hour). But the poor thing must be getting super bored and is fighting for mummy’s attention while he comes to terms with the fact the ‘baba’ is here to stay.

    So yesterday I decided I would take him to a new stay and play group round the corner, and wrap the baby up warm so we could take him with us (I’m breastfeeding on demand so he goes where I go). It sounded simple in my head; get the boys dressed and ready for 10am, and off we go… it’s a five minute walk, how hard could it be…? I’m actually laughing at myself because of how wrong I was. This is how our morning turned out…

    Both boys were up around 6.30am as usual. So I changed and dressed my biggest boy whilst my baby screamed in the background. Calmed the baby down while my biggest had breakfast and then spent the next couple of hours feeding and changing then feeding and changing my baby while my toddler occupied himself and battled for my attention!

    I then made the mistake of putting my toddler’s shoes and coat on first. He was then determined to go outside and would not leave the front porch. Only I needed to get through the porch and to the car to get the base of the pushchair and set the bassinet up for the first time. So we had a little meltdown at the door for ten minutes or so, while the baby was screaming in the background! The people at Ocado decided this was the perfect time to deliver our online shopping, so I then had to bring all the shopping in and put it away without my toddler running off through the front door into the street..whilst the baby was still crying.

    So once the shopping was dealt with, I finally set up the pushchair and got the baby’s coat on. He had, thankfully, now fallen asleep despite all the commotion. So we were ready to go, finally. Although, when my biggest boy saw the baby go into the pushchair and realised he wouldn’t be going in it he had another major meltdown! Luckily, the lovely people at Bugaboo had sent us a toddler board along with the Bee 5 we are road testing, so some quick thinking and five minutes later we had the toddler board all set up and we were actually finally ready to go! One whole hour later!

    The bassinet was so lightweight and easy to push, and the toddler board was a hit although he did switch between sitting on it and walking which is still a new concept for him. My biggest boy loved the stay and play, I can’t believe we have never been before when it is literally on our doorstep! My littlest boy slept the entire time we were there, so the ordeal to get out was definitely worth it.

    I’m sure as I get more used to having two boys we will find things like this get easier.  But having not slept more than a couple of hours the night before, the morning was just a disaster and the whole day then felt the same. Today is a new day. The toddler is off having fun at nursery, and my littlest boy has just fallen asleep… time to put the kettle on 😄.

    Our first impressions of the Bugaboo Bee 5

    I’m a big fan of my current travel system, the Bugaboo Cameleon 3 (read my review here) and was therefore delighted that me, my monkey (and bump) have been lucky enough to road test the new Bugaboo Bee 5. And this is what we think so far…

    It’s super light weight.. and I mean super, super light weight. I thought the Cameleon 3 was as light as it got. Friends often comment on how light and easy it is to manoeuvre, but the Bee 5 is on another level. Being a petite 5ft 2, shorty, it’s perfect for me! Being so small and lightweight makes it great to push around the shops and small spaces. You almost forget there’s a baby inside!

    Easy to fold & unfold.. this is a big plus from me and where I have found the biggest difference to my current travel system. It’s just so easy to click and fold/ unfold, you can do it with one hand. I’ll be honest it took me a few practise attempts to get the hang of it, but once I did, it’s just so easy. I found attaching the seat sightly trickier, but again after a few practise runs I’ve got the hang of it, and again for a small person like me, it couldn’t be easier.

    Compact..this is intended to be a compact system, and Bugaboo have definitely delivered. I love how compact it is. Me and my husband share a car, and we are forever taking the travel system in and out of the car and storing it in the house for a few days when he is working away. I find our current travel system takes up a lot of hallway space (we have no other place to store it), but the Bee 5 folds away into a tiny shell. The added bonus is it fits in my sister’s boot ( a VW polo), which means she can finally take my monkey out on more substantial outings.

    Sturdy underseat basket.. I often go for long walks, end up buying way too much on the way and struggle to get it all in the basket. I’ve found the underseat basket on the Bee 5 to be a lot more sturdy than my current system, and fits a lot more in! This is great as it means I can shop away!

    The leather strap.. this speaks for itself, it looks great, as does the Bee 5 in general!

    I’m loving using the Bee 5 so far, and it certainly gets a lot of attention when out and about. I’m looking forward to testing out the bassinet with my new baby as it looks so snug and cosy.  I’m also looking forward to seeing how my monkey gets on with the toddler board.. which could either be a winner and mean no double buggy for me, or an epic fail as my monkey is very firm on his likes and dislikes right now! I’ll keep you posted 🙂

    I’ll leave you with some snaps of our adventures so far..



    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. I stayed in hospital for 24 hours and used barely any of it and the one thing I wanted I hadn’t packed.. my phone charger lol! 

    As I have a habit of overpacking, this time I went through my old list and made a new list of what I feel are the essentials.. the hospital is five minutes from home so if we end up staying longer etc then I’m not worried.

    What’s inside my bag? 

    For labour:

    • Hair bobbles 
    • Bikini top and a baggy tshirt (hoping for a water birth)
    • Water spray.. I got the Avenue Eau thermale spray from boots 
    • Lip balm.. gas and air makes your lips dry! 
    • Snacks (will sort this on the day)
    • Hospital notes 
    • Tens machine
    • Camera
    • Phone charger 

    For my hospital stay:

    • A cotton dressing gown.. it gets so hot on the wards so I didn’t want a full blown robe
    • Slippers.. the hospital bathroom facilities are yucky! 
    • A nightie.. I’ve packed one with buttons for easy feeding
    • PJ’s.. again I’ve packed buttoned down pjs. And grabbed a £12 bargain from Boux Avenue. I like warm pjs, but if you don’t and the wards are warm, they have nightie versions too 🙂 
    • An outfit to go home in.. leggings and a baggy top! 
    • Socks
    • Towel 
    • Toiletries.. miniatures of things I use daily for my face/hair 
    • Toothbrush
    • Deodorant 
    • Hands, face and body wipes
    • Knickers.. including disposable maternity briefs 
    • Disposable breast pads 
    • Lanisoh 
    • Nursing bra’s 

    I’m rather pleased with how it’s all fit nicely into a small weekend bag. I don’t feel as though I’ve overpacked this time:) 

    What’s inside my babies bag?

    The most exciting part about my babies bag is the bag itself. I treated myself to a new changing bag and went for the Tiba + Marl Elwood in quilted black. So excited to use this! It’s so nice that I’m almost thinking it’s too nice to take to the hospital and may repack! Here’s what’s inside:

    • 4 sleepsuits.. I’ve gone for some newborn, and some early/tiny baby as Sami was teeny tiny
    • 4 vests 
    • Nappies x 10
    • Cotton pads (I use cotton wool and water for nappy changes)
    • Water wipes 
    • Handful of nappy sacks
    • Travel size sudocrem
    • 2 disposable change mats 
    • Socks 
    • Hats x 2
    • Scratch mitts x 2
    • Going home outfit 
    • Snow suit 
    • Blanket 

    In addition these are my must have’s for labour.. 

    1. A tens machine.. they are literally amazing. My last labour was back to back and I used it alllll day and night until I left for hospital 
    2. A ball to bounce on. I had a bright green davina one and bounced through my contractions
    3. Water spray
    4. Lip balm
    5. Snacks

    Last time I used the tens machine and bouncy ball to get me to 9cm dilated at home, hoping they’ll be as useful this time. 

      All of that fits so nicely in my lovely new mum bag.. it’s all starting to feel so real now and a huge weight has been lifted now that I know my bags are ready. I keep telling my husband that the baby is coming soon, but he’s not convinced. For now it’s a waiting game..

      My labour ‘must haves’
      My cute new Boux Avenue pj’s
      My new mum bag 😍😍😍

      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, and my little monkey who despite being ill too is still in good spirits and full of energy. I’m lucky enough to have my family around to help, as there was one week I literally couldn’t get out of bed, and typically that was the week I had annual leave from work.. talk about timing. 

      So anyway, we made it to 35 weeks! I’m starting to feel like the baby could make an appearance at any time, so am frantically trying to get my house in order while I can. In other words, nesting has well and truly kicked in! 

      Those of you who have read my blog for a while will know we moved into our home the day I went into labour with Sami, therefore I never got to unpack and organise our things properly. I was very lucky to have my sister unpack everything for me, but with Sami never spending more than a few hours apart from me until he was 14 months old in September (exclusively breastfed and a bottle refuser), I never had the time to organise the house. When he finally gained independence and started nursery, I went back to work three days a week, and did not want to spend my days off doing chores..

      I have spent the last week frantically getting all these jobs done. My kitchen cupboards are now super organised, my (many wardrobes) are organised and decluttered, Sami’s wardrobes have been reorganised to make space for the babies clothes and I’ve tackled the walk in wardrobe. I’m feeling a lot less stressed about the house situation but still really need to start preparing for this little baby that will be with us imminently! I still have to pack a hospital bag, and need to get some clothes ready and washed! 

      We haven’t brought a single thing for this baby as we’re hoping to use most of the things we already have. However, I do need to get a few things, so that’s next on the to do list once my hospital bag is packed. Whenever I get a little stressed at the situation, I just think back to last time and the fact my husband was assembling our bed, the crib and all other essentials as I was in Labour, whilst our carpets where being laid and our possessions were being unloaded from the removal van. It can’t possibly be any worse this time! We have a crib, we have Nappies and clothes, and breast milk on tap! That’s all the essentials covered! 

      So anyway I’ve turned this into an essay already, here’s my 35 week bump update…

      Total weight gain: 1 stone 1 pound! Hardly put anything on this pregnancy but I was a stone heavier to begin with

      How big is the baby: No idea, but bump is measuring as 32 weeks, so we may have a baby that is even tinier than Sami was

      Sleep: Still not had a full nights sleep since Sami was born. Baby number two wakes me with kicks, or I can’t get comfy, or I need the loo. On top of this I have been experiencing extreme itchiness, which is worse at night. Lucky me..(itchiness in pregnancy can be a sign of Obstetric Cholestatis so make sure you get it checked out if you experience this). I can’t wait to ditch the pregnancy pillow and sleep on my front again 🙂 

      Belly button: Still in, just about. Last time it stayed well and truly in the whole pregnancy

      Stretch marks: Luckily I’ve not noticed any to date, hoping to be stretch mark free like last time 

      Maternity clothes: Still wearing my normal clothes coupled with maternity leggings or tights, so have done well not to need a new wardrobe again

      Favourite moment this week: Watching my little monkey take his first few steps, hoping to see him walk sometime soon 

      Cravings: None, I’m still not convinced these even exist

      Labour signs: None.. thankfully it’s too early and too much to do, baby is head down for now and I have major braxton hicks

      Most looking forward to: The start of maternity leave, only two weeks (that’s 6 working days for me) to go… 

      oh and we have picked a name :):) 


      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 my reasons for breastfeeding, the facts speak for themselves..( read up on the benefits here).. plus it felt like the most natural thing to do. But, I now know, I was lucky with my breastfeeding journey, very lucky..

      My baby latched on straight away after birth (skin to skin deffo helped). Yes the first 4-6 weeks were HARD. It was painful, I had sore, cracked and bleeding nipples. Me and my baby struggled to find the right latch, and I felt uncomfortable even feeding at home with so many people around. We had just moved house and only had one living room set up, if I wanted privacy (which I did), I had to leave the room. Which wasn’t easy initially with my stitches. In the end I gave in and fed in front of everyone, making me more anxious and uncomfortable in the early days. 

      But, we had no real issues. Cracked nipples and soreness is completely normal, and because I was adamant I didn’t let this stop me. But I can easily see how this would be hard for some people to deal with. Especially with lack of knowledge and the wrong advice. And as a new mum, the advice keeps flowing, and you start to question whether the baby is getting enough milk, are they hungry, are they jaundice, is your milk sufficient? Like I said I was lucky, we had no major feeding issues so my only challenge was dealing with the pain and getting the hang of it which took around 6 weeks. Had I not been so determined and desperate to make it work, and had not done my research, I could have easily given up. And if I had given up, there would have been nothing wrong with that, a happy baby and mum is more important than anything. 

      And this is where my views have changed. Prior to being a mother, and even as a new mum, I couldn’t understand why a women wouldn’t breastfeed or atleast attempt to. I was so naïve. I’ve since witnessed my cousin and best friend become mums and have totally different experiences to me. Both wanting to breastfeed, but both being separated from their babies after birth, and consequently having to face even more difficulties in their breastfeeding journeys than normal. I’ve also witnessed lack of support from health professionals in the first few days, at the detriment of establishing breastfeeding altogether. I now know, that for some people, no matter how adamant they are, the circumstances take the choice away from them. Again, I was lucky, and am thankful for how things turned out for me. 

      As I said before, breastfeeding is hard. It’s the hardest thing I have ever done..I can easily see why so many people do not stick it out. Your baby relies on you 100%, which means everything you do, everything you wear, down to everywhere you go, is centred around feeding your baby. And, if like me, you have a bottle refuser (my monkey had no interest in expressed milk), you literally feel like you never get a break from being ‘mummy’. And the night wake ups and lack of sleep can really catch up on you. When your a breastfeeding mummy, you can’t just have a night off, or even a few hours off. Your always there, on call incase your baby needs you, 24 hours a day. 

      As well as being a bottle refuser, what made breastfeeding harder for me, was the fact that he was not interested in food until he was 13 months old. Which meant he was exclusively fed by me until then. Finally at 13 months he started to eat a meal a day, then within days this turned into three meals! I nearly cried the first time he ate a meal as I literally thought the day would never come and it meant so much to me. 

      And it couldn’t have come at a better time as I was 4 months pregnant, and was getting kicked in the tummy and breastfeeding was becoming uncomfortable. Being pregnant, my milk supply had dwindled drastically and the soreness and pain from breastfeeding in the early days came flooding back. But I persevered for two more months. I had always hoped to feed until a minimum of 2 years, as recommended by the World Health Organisation, but the realities of feeding when pregnant, the pain, the tiredness, and my monkeys frustration from getting very little milk from me, which in turn added to the soreness, had become too much. 

      So at 15 months we called it a day, it took three days for my monkey to stop asking and I offered lots of snacks and lots of cuddles. I felt so sad and so bad for my monkey for refusing him of the one thing he wanted. But if he hadn’t have taken to it so well, I probably would have continued. I really think the fact I was pregnant and my supply had reduced so much, made the whole thing so much easier, for us both. He’s never asked again and the last two months have resulted in a toddler who eats so much, is less clingy and sleeps all night (an added bonus). 

      I am so proud of our breastfeeding journey, and proud of us both for making it to 15 months, especially since recent research suggests that only 0.5% of people are still breastfeeding at 12 months in the U.K. (BBC article, 2016). A statistic that shocks me, but also fills me with pride. I’m proud that I could feed my baby, and give him the best start I could, and I’m also grateful as I know, it’s not so simple for everyone, and mothers do the best they can in the choices they make. I’m not going to lie, it’s been nice to have a break from feeding this last two months, but I am looking forward to hopefully doing it again..only 9 weeks to go 😍

      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 I thought it was a fluke, but it’s been almost two months and my monkey has ‘slept’ ever since. 

      And boy is it nice! So much so, that you forget all the sleepless nights, the every two hour wake ups, the 5am starts, the evenings where your forever putting your baby back to sleep and overall the relentlessness and sleep deprivation! Okay, well maybe I haven’t forgotten it totally, but somehow you forget just how hard it really was.

      So now that my baby sleeps, I have a new problem.. I CANT sleep! Typical. Well I fall asleep just fine, but I wake multiple times at night, for a glass of water, to use the loo, because the baby is kicking, or because I can’t get comfy (despite the pregnancy pillow that is taking over my bed). And atleast once a night, usually around 3-4am I cannot go back to sleep for 1, sometimes 2 hours. Not even my trusty rain and thunder sleep music works, which has been a godsend these last 17 months. If your having issues going back to sleep after the relentless night feeds, try it! It used to work wonders for me! 

      So anyway, I lie awake for AGES, thinking and overthinking, replaying my day, or thinking about alllllll the things I need to do, and the most annoying one, thinking about work and my ever growing todo list. Apart from pregnancy, I blame work for my inability to sleep. Thank god I only have two short months left of work, before another little monkey arrives and I actually have no sleep for the forseeeable future again 😂😂. 

      Last night I woke at 4am and did not sleep again until gone 5.30am, only to be woken at 6.30am! And typically, my little monkey didn’t wake until 8am so we were late for nursery. Luckily it’s my morning off and I am not budging from the sofa until it’s time to collect him again. 

      Happy Tuesday everyone! 

      Maybe I need an adult version of one of these..
