The funny thing about the ‘newborn fog’ is that you have no idea you are in it until you’ve come out of it. Everyone warns you how the first few weeks will leave you feeling confused and tired, but there really is nothing to fully prepare you. The interesting thing is, for me, it wasn’t […]Read More The newborn fog
Never would I think that I would actually miss you. From time to time I find myself reaching down and giving you a rub. Only to be greeted with the fat pocket that remains of what you once were. I miss the movement I used to feel when you were “Bean”, wriggling around doing somersaults […]Read More Dear Bump…
So i’ve just read an article on the daily mail (I know, why did I bother reading such trash?) and I am LIVID. I find it quite hilarious at the fact that this article seems to think that the only need to be a breast feeding mother is if ‘you are living in sub-Saharan Africa with […]Read More THAT Daily Mail article.
Facebook is dangerous. There I said it. Since embarking on parenthood I’ve been joining lots of different ‘support’ groups, to speak to other mums and to take my worries away if I ever have any. But in all honesty? The majority of these groups just fill me with more worry, and I’m pretty sure it’s […]Read More #MumLife: The mum world of social media
I have so much I need to get down on (virtual) paper. But no idea where to start. What do I even want to say? Do I even want/need to write it? I’m in a funk and I don’t know how to snap out of it. All I’ll say is. There is a lot more […]Read More Where do I even start?
So far Aria has been exclusively breastfed, with a nightly bottle of expressed breast milk. Breastfeeding is the most wonderful yet demanding and worrying way to feed a child, imo anyway! When Aria was born I was told she was born on the 50th centile, yet with every weigh in she was getting lower and […]Read More #TheBoobDiaries: Mama’s Magic Milk
So I wanted to start another blog post series and this one is going to be all about…Breastfeeding! Dear Aria…. My love for you is infinite. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you. You bring me so much joy, love and laughter. Everyone who meets you falls in love with you too. Those […]Read More #TheBoobDiaries: Dear Aria
So, when people talk about mum guilt they are normally talking about the guilt they feel surrounding their children. But I’m not going to talk about that type of ‘Mum Guilt’. The type of mum guilt I have been feeling is in fact, for other mums! Since Aria has been born, in all honesty? I […]Read More #Mum Life: Mum Guilt (But not the type you’re thinking of)
So I am now 9 weeks post partum, and the body blues are real! I am fed up of having the new wobbly tummy, these chunky thighs, and quite frankly, I am sick and tired of having to wear frumpy clothes! I have never really had any real major concerns with my body, yes there […]Read More Body Blues…
So Aria is 6 weeks old now, and let me tell you. I have learnt quite a bit in the last few weeks! The biggest thing I have learnt though, is that I have literally no idea what I am doing! Okay, that’s a bit of an over exaggeration. I know the basics. Make sure […]Read More #MumLife: I have no idea what I’m doing!
