This Sunday I am reviewing the ‘Elizabeth’ teething necklace from Bo&Bel.
This Sunday I’m reviewing a hexagonal teething necklace from Bo&Bel. Autumn has been teething since around the time she turned 3 months old in December and at almost 6 months, she has now reached that age where everything within reach goes in her mouth! I’ve been crushing on Bo&Bel‘s teething jewellery for quite some time, so when the opportunity to arose to review a necklace I gladly accepted the opportunity!

When do you first start feeling like a mom/mother/mum? This post discusses when I first felt like I was a mum. Was it when I took my positive pregnancy test? Was it when I saw my baby on the sonographer’s screen or was it once she was actually born?
It was late January 2016 that I took my positive pregnancy test, so I’ve been thinking a lot about this time last year. I was thinking about when I started being a mum and when I started feeling like a mum. Without getting into a pro-life vs. pro-choice debate, I’d like to share my story and discuss with you when you first started being a mum. Continue reading “When do you start feeling like a mother?”
This Sunday I am reviewing the award-winning eco-friendly Bambo Nature nappies (diapers).
A few weeks ago on Twitter, the Conscious Parent Company were asking for parent bloggers who would like to try and review the award-winning Bambo Nature Nappies. I’m not a huge fan of using disposable nappies, but struggle to fit reusable cloth nappies into my daily life (as lovely as they are). As these nappies are eco-friendly disposable nappies, they’re somewhere between the two, so I jumped at the chance! Continue reading “Sunday Review: Bambo Nature Nappies”
I haven’t written a poem for about a decade, possibly longer. However, I have some pretty strong views on women insulting people for bottle feeding their babies and I thought I’d try to express it through poetry. Even just a mention of breastfeeding or seeing someone breastfeeding hurts someone like me. Please don’t get me wrong, I’m not asking people to not mention breastfeeding around me, or to not breastfeed around me or others. I’m fully supportive of breastfeeding, I just think there needs to be some more sensitivity to women who formula feed their babies.
I absolutely loved breastfeeding, I’ve mentioned it in a previous post about My Breastfeeding Journey. I tried my hardest with all the odds against me to keep going as long as I could and felt like I had the experience stolen from me by a cruel turn of events. I felt very down after I had to stop as I felt a massive sense of disappointment and failure.

My husband and I’s first date night after our baby was born turned out to be a disaster. Dave didn’t like Fifty Shades Darker and Autumn had separation anxiety.
During my pregnancy we didn’t really go out and have dates to make the most of our time as a couple before Autumn arrived. This was because I just felt bad in one way or another throughout the whole pregnancy! Autumn is now almost 5 months old and we felt as though it might be time we went on our first post-baby date night. Knowing that my mum was going to be off work due to half term, we asked my parents if they would be able to look after her one evening for us.
