Giving Birth and Visitors – What I’ve Learnt

Giving birth isn’t easy, I definitely underestimated the physical pain! Not trying to scare any pregnant ladies out there, but there’s no point sugar coating it. It is equally as exciting though, as it’s 9 long months of waiting to see your beautiful baby. I remember feeling so happy that I was soon to meet my baby. That’s what kept…

Being mum

I can’t quite believe my little Molly moo is now 15 weeks old. That time has gone unbelievably fast – too fast! I used to laugh when I heard mum’s say ‘they grow so quickly, you have to make the most of every minute’. However, I truly relate to that now. Each day goes past and it’s hard to notice…

Family friendly break in Torquay

My partner, Chris, and I decided it was time we had a little holiday with Molly (who is now 10 weeks old). As she is still very young we didn’t want to go far, but we wanted to go somewhere different. I had a browse online and thought that Torquay would be a perfect place for us to go. As…

Perfect gift for a foodie!

As you all know I love my food! I especially love discovering deliciously healthy snacks. It’s not always easy to find things which are as equally tasty as they are healthy. I’m constantly snacking at the moment too which isn’t great for the jelly belly! Breastfeeding seems to make me insanely hungry – I’m hungrier now than I was when…

Why does our society have a problem with breastfeeding?

As a new mum, with no experience, it’s easy to assume breastfeeding is going to be a breeze. I used to think, how hard can it really be, the baby just latches on and suckles away!? Well I soon learnt that I was very wrong. The first evening with my baby, Molly, I couldn’t understand why she wouldn’t just latch…
