That Mummy Tummy

I have, at times, mentioned my mummy tummy on this blog, when talking about my weight loss journey, general dieting and how I feel about myself physically. I don’t think though that I have ever spoken about this new feature of mine negatively. Purely that it’s there, it’s something I have, a fact of my post-baby body.

Having Two Babies is Hard

It’s only now, that Little Man is a year old, that I can find the words to talk about how hard it has been having two children.

Teaching Little Man to Self Settle

I have written before about how our breastfeeding journey is coming to an end – Little Man is one very soon and we’ll be winding down breastfeeding shortly after his Birthday. Up until recently Little Man had always fed to sleep but I have realised recently that I have had to start rocking him to sleep rather than feeding – The same thing we have done for nap times since Little…
