I fell in love with baby wearing when Little Miss H was six months old and I bought my first wrap. I soon became obsessed but I was sad that I hadn’t known about the benefits of baby wearing earlier.
As my pregnancy with Little Mister H progressed I became more and more excited by the idea of wearing a newborn. I couldn’t wait to have our little bundle of squishiness all wrapped up next to me.
Then a few months before Little Mister H was born I was contacted by the baby wearing experts We Made Me. I was thrilled that they wanted to work with me to promote the amazing benefits of carrying your child in a sling, wrap or carrier. And I was looking forward to trying their fabulous products; the Wuti Wrap, the Pao Carrier and the Soohu Sling.read more

Little Mister H was 10 weeks old yesterday. And 10 days ago, he turned two months old.
The newborn baby days are behind us. Little Mister H is now a very active and alert baby. He loves to smile and happily gurgles away whilst lying on his playmat. He makes the cutest noises and it sounds like he is trying to talk to us.
We have definitely settled into life as a family of 4. And it feels like Little Mister H was always meant to be a part of our lives.
I love watching Little Mister H develop and change. But my baby boy is growing up and this makes me sad and happy all at the same time.
But thanks to this blog I will remember those first newborn cuddles. The first meeting between brother and sister. The first night at home sleeping in a bednest next to Mummy and Daddy. The first smile. The first “coo”!
And there are so many more firsts still to come. I hope that you will allow me to share them with you in these monthly updates.read more
When I was pregnant with Little Miss H I refused to buy an expensive maternity or nursing bra. I foolishly decided that it wasn’t worth investing in a good quality bra as I would only be wearing it for a few months. How stupid! Most of that pregnancy was spent wearing bras that were ill-fitting, looked terrible and weren’t supportive of my huge and tender breasts.
When I became pregnant with Little Mister H I decided that it was important to invest in some quality maternity bras. But I didn’t have a clue what to buy.
I was thrilled when Bravado contacted me and asked if I wanted to review the Bravado Body Silk Seamless Yoga Nursing Bra.
This bra was an essential part of my hospital bag. Breasts go through a great deal of change after you have had a baby and it is really important that you wear a bra that will support and protect them.read more
Today marks the end of the first ever Pre & Post Natal Depression Awareness Week #PNDAW16 run by PANDAS (the UK’s leading pre and post natal depression charity). In light of this, I wanted to share my story of perinatal mental health.
My experience of perinatal mental illnesses may be slightly unusual as I have suffered from depression for almost 17 year; most of my adult life.
At times, my mental health has been terrible. At other times it has been under control.
During those 17 years I have had many relapses and depressive episodes. My depression is classed as long-term and it is highly likely that I will have to take antidepressants for the rest of my life.
As a result of this, becoming a mother was never going to be easy. And there was a high risk that I would suffer from a perinatal mental health problem at some point.read more
