5 Golden Rules for Working Mums | Raising Evelyn

No matter where you are online, be it Facebook, a blog you follow or a forum for mothers and fathers the world over, you will always see debates happening. Boob or bottle. Disposable nappy or cloth. Pushchairs or babywearing. You could be the best possible parent, and someone, somewhere, will find a way to pick at your decision that you have made for your child. The one big debate that goes on everywhere is this one: Should you go back to work or stay at home? It’s a big question and any  ...

We Started Weaning Vol. 2 | Raising Evelyn

I wanted to write a follow up / Volume 2 of Evelyn’s weaning stories. 3/4 months ago we were weaning Evelyn and getting ourselves into a right old pickle! Evelyn is 9 months, I can’t say we are now ‘plain sailing’ but we are doing a lot better. We have totally done away with any form of bowl…spoon…folk…spork…. it just wasn’t happening. I decided it was time for her to try doing it all herself. She is the most independent baby and knows  ...

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.

Motherhood | The first chapters of life

Motherhood. No one can prepare you for it. No matter how many websites you read or how much advice you are given you can only be told about experience. Each baby is unique and only the minority are text book babies. I remember being told that having a ‘good baby’ is sleeping through the night at 6 weeks. After ample research it turns out babies shouldn’t sleep through the night and if they do you are most likely over feeding them. Babies should wake every 2-5 hours  ...

Sleepyhead Pods | Are They Worth The Hype

I want to start off by saying something outright…. I hate Moses baskets! They are big, bulky, ugly …. there is not one thing about them I like! However don’t judge me just yet! I wanted to find an alternative to lugging a Moses basket about the house that didn’t include having a swing crib by the bed and Moses basket downstairs. I wanted portable… I wanted something easy… I wanted something almost necessary! I have a Moses basket for night-time sleeping.  ...
