Sigi is almost 6 months old (how has that happened?!), Which means I'm also nearly six months postpartum so I thought I would do a bit of an update about how I'm doing. Physically, my C-section scar has healed very nicely. I do get the occasional twinges, especially if I've had to walk a long … Continue reading My (Almost) 6 Months Post C-Section Update.
There's pros and cons to everything you do as a parent and cloth nappies are no exception. With this in mind I decided to do my list of pros and cons for using reusable nappies.

This is the first in a series of posts I'm planning to do all about our journey with cloth nappies and reusable wipes, how we've been managing with them so far. When we had Frey I didn't even think to look at reusable nappies or wipes. The overwhelming feeling of being a first time mum … Continue reading Sustainable Living: Cloth Nappies, An Overview of Our Journey So Far.
That is the most infuriating question of all at the moment. So, lately, there have been problems with napping in our house. Frey has just turned 2 and hes at that phase where sometimes he just doesn't want to nap, and honestly, it's exhausting. He used to go down for a nap between 12-1 and … Continue reading To Nap or Not To Nap?
Today, October 10th 2019 is World Mental Health Day. I've spoken on here multiple times before about my mental health and my struggles, with my post natal anxiety after Frey was born, but what I haven't really talked about all the other things that cause me anxiety, make me feel worthless, or a bit of … Continue reading Me and My Mental Health.
I know I always say it, but how do I have a three month old? Seriously where has the time gone? Feels like yesterday she was a few days old and now she's in 3-6 month clothing and can hold her head up fine all on her own. So she's a big girl, there's no … Continue reading Sigi 3 Month Update

Every parent has that one place where they take their kids when their at the end of their ropes. When your kids are climbing the walls and that you've watched The Lorax for the 500th time. When you've got to get out of house before you scream and you need to take them somewhere that … Continue reading Surviving The Summer: The Ice Cream Farmers
I couldn't baby wear with Frey, mostly due to my mental state at the time. You see we got a baby sling and I had visions of looking like some glorious earth mother when I wore it. The reality was every time I tried to use it I spent the whole time in a complete … Continue reading Baby Wearing The Second Time Round: Infantino Flip Advanced 4-in-1 Carrier
I can't believe that it's been a month since I gave birth to my beautiful baby daughter but here we are. Even though she's only a month old, I can already see parts of her personality starting to peek through. She's very inquisitive and much calmer than her big brother was at this age.
