People says #parenting gets easier. Are they lying? Life with #baby is always hard work or am I just doing it wrong?

So I achieved one awesome thing this week…you know apart from the always awesome managing to get dressed and not live in my PJs. I took Sidekick swimming…and she didn’t drown….yeay!!!

Who has yet to find there #tribe? Anyone else a lonely #mum?

Sung in a really off note whilst Sidekick looks at me, I can tell she’s worried, I would be to, I’m sure I’ve just scared a load of dogs.

Someone chose not to #vaccinate now we are suffering with #measles. Selfish #parenting

My baby girl has measles. She is covered in tiny spots. I spent three hours in A&E whilst they made sure it was just measles. Public Health England have had to be notified. She is waking throughout the night. At times she is waking every thirty minutes,…
Vaccinations…just do it!

Monkey or a Hawk, which are we? Why are we so against #attachmentparenting

We are primates yet we are pushed to raise our young like birds? Why is society anti attachment parenting and extended breastfeeding?
Bird vs primate, are we able to fly?

Well it has begun…. My return to work has begun. Slowly building up the hours. It sucks. I know many of us are in this position. Returning when all we want to do is stay home and be with our child. I’m trying to be brave.

Autumn in a mouthful. #Glutenfree #dairyfree #sugarfree cake. Yummy I promise.

An autumnal cake that makes the most of the natural sweetness of apples. Perfect for a birthday cake for baby led weaning.

Even doing #attachmentparenting you can still feel useless a lot!

I feel useless, my return to work is looming and I'm not looking forward to being a working mum.

Now that the weather is getting cooler why not try this spiced lentil and vegetable one pot.

The great thing about baby led weaning is having your little one eating what you are eating and this can include mildly spiced food. This red lentil and vegetable one pot is quick and easy to do and tasty!

Bedsharing isn't the evil thing you are made to believe it is #attachmentparenting #baby

Everyone has opinions on baby sleep. Just don't weigh in on our choice to bedshare and tell me how wrong we are for doing it. Attachment parenting is about nurturing your child and allowing them to learn to sleep in their own time.
