First steps with the Infantino 3-in-1 Walker

We’re very proud that Little Mister H is now officially walking! He started the week after he turned 13 months. Like his sister before him, he kept us waiting a while. There were several weeks where there was a lot of very tentative standing and wobbling… with the occasional lunge forward. But when our children get it, it seems like they really get it. Little Mister H is now storming around the house with ease, and causing all kinds of…

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that Little Miss H and Little Mr H are rainbow babies. This means that both our children were born following baby loss. And they are the bright and beautiful rainbows in the sky after the heartbreaking storms of miscarriage. After three miscarriages we’d almost given up hope of having a second child. And so the pregnancy with Little Mister H was always going to be our last. No matter how it…

We’ve been working with the fabulous brand We Made Me since Little Mister H was first born. We’ve previously reviewed their stretchy wrap, the Wuti Wrap. And we’ve also been sent the Pao Papoose Carrier and Soohu Sling to test. The Wuti Wrap was amazing and in the first few months after Little Mister H was born it was used during every dinner and bedtime. It was the only way that I managed to survive those croup filled evenings. However,…

But even after all this time, I feel guilt that I was not able to breastfeed. And I feel a tug in my heart every time I…
