This week, we have the amazing Lyndsey from Me, Him, The Dog And A Baby sharing her #bottlefeedingstories I’m Lyndsey, a 30 year old first time mum! I blog over at Me, Him, The Dog and a Baby! Erin was born on New Year’s Day 2016 so she’s just over a year old now. I started breastfeeding… Read More #bottlefeedingstories with Me, Him, The Dog & A Baby
A little while ago I was tagged in White Camillas #rockingmotherhood Tag by Claire over at The Pramshed. It’s easy to be hard on ourselves as parents; the difficult moments stay in our heads far more tenaciously than the little lovely everyday things. So this fab tag is a reminder of all the amazing things… Read More 10 Reasons I’m #rockingmotherhood
Bring it on 2017! It’s Sunday, the very first Sunday of the year. Nearly 9pm and I’m sat in my almost finished kitchen with a jam donut in one hand (was reduced, doesn’t count…) and a Becks Blue (still not drinking, definitely not pregnant) in the other, contemplating the blog.

The main thinking behind this was I didn’t want the stress! Oh, how wrong could I be?! Yes, toddler parties seem… Read More On The Benefits of Toddler Birthday Parties
Today sees us heading off to the Health Visitor to have X’s 24 Month development check. We received the Ages and Stages Questionnaire through the post about a fortnight ago; it includes a number of questions regarding abilities and the option to choose Yes, Sometimes or No.
No longer a teen-monther… OK, I’ll admit, I feel a bit silly calling him 20 months now. He’s 1 and a half, really… but the difference between 1 and 2 is so enormous, I feel like I’m being unjust by saying he’s a 1 year old. Once he hits 2 there’s no argument, he’s a… Read More 20 Month Update
