Father’s Day

Last Sunday was Father’s Day. There are three people in my life now who I think about on Father’s Day so I thought I would ‘write to’ each of them on here to get my feelings on paper. Dear Bio Dad, You were in my life very briefly when I was born and have only been back in my life since I was 17. The last 10 years have been…

Healthy Fruit Scones Recipe

After the popularity of my Cheese Scones post, I thought I would also share my Healthy Fruit Scones Recipe for a bit of variety, a sweet option and something else to add to the baby led weaning menu but also something that the whole family can enjoy.

Cheese Scones Recipe | BLW Update!

We have now been Baby Led Weaning for 3 months. LP has still only fed herself, we have never spoon fed her.

When all you want is a duvet day…

Our two nights of sleeping through were swiftly followed by teething hell. Teething hell then turned rapidly into poorly baby. LP has had a runny nose, cough, watery eyes, temperature and general ‘unwellness’ for a few days and I have spent my time giving her cuddles and dosing her up with Calpol! The sickness meant that LP went off her food so I have been breastfeeding every 3-4 hours throughout…
