Two weeks ago crisis hit. We’re a man down and I’ve been going it solo parenting Piglet. JHogg is here in spirit, but he’s been about as useful as a chocolate tea pot. He had an emergency trip to a&e for a suspected dislocated shoulder, a follow up for an X-ray (which resulted in one

I love a dessert and during the hot slightly warmer summer months berries are my first choice. Whether shop bought or straight from my Grandparents allotment, with icing sugar on waffles or on their own with lashings of cream, I want them!

Sleep Regression

In the last week Piglet has started to find it pretty tough to fall asleep. He’s gone from the most easy going little chap to a squirming, crying, tired little boy! Once he’s asleep and in his cot he’s pretty good at staying asleep, it’s just the falling asleep that is tough. We haven’t changed

We’re here. Piglet is 4 months old. We’ve officially survived the newborn stage and lived to tell the tale! I have 2 older sisters with 5 children between them, plus a sister in law with 2 children. When I was pregnant I asked around on what we should have ready and all 3 gave us

I want to head this post up by saying I’m not pro breast and I’m not pro bottle – I’m pro feeding. As long as your child is happy and healthy and getting fed it doesn’t matter how the milk gets into them. That said – I really wanted to breast feed. I know it

A few times a day Piglet and I go through the tummy time battle. He has hated tummy time from day one. Everyone has said “he’ll get used to it and soon he’ll love it” but here we are, 4 months on, still having a scream every time. I’m sure I’m not alone in my concerns

Its hard to believe that Alexander has been with us for 4 months now. I have already forgotten how small he seemed, he is so strong and sturdy now. He grows and changes every day and I love being at home to share it all with him. Size He is weighing in at 11lb 3oz
