My long long long wait to pop out a baby, not really knowing if they really were contractions, and sciatica in labour👎🏻
Labour does not happen like it does on television, well not in my experience. My waters didn't suddenly break and a few our later, pop, baby. I first started to feel what I could only imagine were contractions on Monda...

10 Best Glass Baby Bottles – Non Plastic Bottles

After being neglected for many decades in favor of Plastic bottles, glass bottles are making a strong comeback.

Due to increase in concerns of health risks posed by plastic bottles, many parents are choosing glass baby bottles over plastic baby bottles.

In the recent years, plastic bottles became the default choice for feeding babies. But revelations regarding the ill effects of a substance called BPA (Bisphenol A) shook up the entire industry.​

In various studies conducted, BPA was found to have an effect on the brain, behavior and prostate gland of fetuses.

Alarmed by the studies, FDA has banned the use of BPA in baby bottles and infant formula packaging. FDA though has said that, “BPA is safe at the current levels occurring in foods”.​

My due date has been and gone. It's very normal for a baby to arrive later than expected, but sometimes it feels as though yours is the only one ever to be late! 
Warning: This is a ranting post about being overdue and people's need to ask totally unnecessary questions or make dumb comments. I was due last Wednesday, I'm now only 3 days (4 days by the time this is published) over due...

Here I talk about the issues wit having a tiny car. But loving that car so much that upgrading to a family car is not really an option (yet).

I drive a Fiat 500. My beautiful blue Fiat. I've had it for about 4 years and we've been through a lot! Within only a couple of months of getting the car, we had the most horrendous storm which brought with it hail the size o...

I'm often asked if my "nursery" is ... "Ready". Living in a small home means we don't quite have a nursery as such. Here I talk about how we've made our home work for us, and how we've saved space. It may be small, but it's full of character and love and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Do you have any space saving tips to share? Particularly where bringing a new one into your home is concerned?

We've decided to go for cloth nappies! It was all very confusing at first but I'm sure we'll figure it out.

What are your experiences of real nappies? And tips and advice? 
We decided a long time ago, probably before we'd even thought about having a child, that having "real" or reusable nappies was the way to go. We've always been good at recycling and composting (although not so much since we r...

Keep moving.

That seems to be what the third trimester is all about. Suddenly you go from being pregnant, to being pregnant-pregnant, seriously pregnant, a soon to be mother.

I chose to take my maternity leave 4 weeks before by due date, with the added bonus of Easter which actually made it 6 weeks before d day. ..

The battle we had breast feeding, and the war I had with the guilt of giving up.
Get comfortable, this is a long one! (scroll straight to the bottom if you just want reassurance if breastfeeding isn't working, or if you'd like to learn more about tongue tie) My experience I had always intended to ex...

Hospital bags and horror stories. What have you packed or wish you'd packed in your bag?

and family that I was pregnant was definitely one of, if not the greatest thing about being pregnant. Everyone was so full of love and it made you feel like you were definitely doing the right thing. Making people cry tears of joy (for a change!) will always stay with me and make me feel warm and fuzzy on the inside.

However... get to the third trimester and a lot of people suddenly change from "congratulations/ I bet ....
