My Baby Birth Story | His and Hers Perspective

I have been debating whether to write about my birth story, whether to share all the details or whether to keep it just for us. I think if it had gone any differently then perhaps this post wouldn’t have happened. I wanted to write my perspective on what I think happened when I wasn’t too drugged up to help other first time mum’s understand what it can be like. Every birth is unique and everyone experiences things differently. I also wanted Phil to write his version of  ...

The Postpartum in between weight | Why nothing in my wardrobe fits

This is the part I knew I would hate. Waking up in the morning and trying to find something in the wardrobe that fits. Every morning I still try to squeeze into my size 8 jeans in the hope that over night somehow I have lost a stone (lol)! I have already lost 3 stone since giving birth and I have a little less than one left to lose and Evelyn is not even 5 months yet. I think I am doing quite well but that last stone is a killer to shift. I see now why they call it stones! Can we just stop  ...

First Buggy for a First Time Mum | The iCandy Peach

When having a baby I think Buggies are so hard to choose, you’ve got to get the right combo for your situation. Whether it be all-terrain, small, light weight, jogger, vintage … there are so many to choose from. Not only is it a mine field but it also almost becomes a social status. Unfortunately. I hate that people think that the more expensive buggie they buy the better it makes them look- so over it! There is like the buggy hierarchy it’s ridiculous. Still we chose ours  ...

Supporting Evelyn | Baby Pillows

There is a lot of stigma attached to using unnecessary baby products. Mums have an opinion about them all, it is quite ridiculous really. Evelyn has begun getting a round bald patch at the back of her head, don’t worry this is quite common and can eventually lead to a bit of a flat head. That is where a ergonomic baby pillow comes in very handy. This is the Lovenest Baby Pillow from Babymoov. Babymoov is a company actually born by three men! I know! It is not just us women that know  ...

Soothing Skin with Childs Farm |Booths New Skincare Range

Everyone is slowly beginning to hear of Childs Farm. They hit the deck last year with their ‘miracle’ baby moisturiser which claimed to be great for sensitive eczema prone skin. Booths have a new skincare range out and have decided to include Childs Farm in it (YAY). I am no expert on eczema. My step son has suffered with it pretty much all his life, we have him every other weekend so it is notes who primarily has to deal with it but we’ve had to do our fair share. The  ...

Losing the baby weight | My Weight loss Journey

I really didn’t know whether I was going to do this post or not, I mean it’s just another one of those weight loss blog pieces that everyone will either criticise or moan at right. Well tbh I don’t care. By writing this blog piece I am being open and honest and hopefully I’ll end up helping someone or inspiring someone but most of all I’ll be more likely to achieve my own goals. So with Evelyn I put on so much weight. 4 and a half stone to be exact. Most of it  ...

The Izmi Wrap

From the very start of my pregnancy I was on the hunt for a wrap or carrier to hold my baby in when she arrived. A lot of people have an opinion against them but as long as you are careful I think they are a great idea. One that particularly stood out is The Izmi Wrap. A lot of carriers etc you cannot use for newborns so firstly that was key in our hunt. Next it had to be soft. If the carrier or wrap was going to hold my baby to me she would have to be snuggled in and comfy. And of  ...

Breastfeeding with Mama Designs MamaScarf

It comes that dreaded time in so many new mums lives when we have to take our precious little bundle out and we have to feed in public. Im not talking bottle feeding im talking full on boob out malarkey. I am that person. I am the one that all the older generations frown at when I whip out my bulbous boob and a screaming new born. Since 2010 it has been the law that no one is allowed to ask you to stop feeding in a public place. It is actually a criminal offence… still it doesn’t stop  ...
