Sunday Review: Sudocrem Care & Protect

When I was offered the chance to review Sudocrem Care & Protect cream, I was intrigued. I’ve only used normal Sudocrem before and found it brilliant. It’s been around for over 80 years. In fact, my mum used it on my brother and I when we were babies and swore by it. I’d been using it for spots for years before I used it on Autumn’s nappy rash. Recently, she’s been teething and this seems to have made the nappy rash situation worse! Continue reading “Sunday Review: Sudocrem Care & Protect”

Are young parents bad parents?

When I found out I was pregnant last January I’d just turned 24 years old. I was the same age in September when I gave birth to Autumn. I thought that was probably quite average, I didn’t think it was that young to become a mum for the first time. However, when I started going to baby groups I usually found that I was the youngest there. In one of the groups, a first time mum was only a few months younger than my mum!

When I found out I was pregnant – Mummy Confessions

Mummy Confessions was surprised but also not surprised to find out she was pregnant. But how was she going to tell her husband?

Hi and welcome to my When I found out I was pregnant guest series! It was originally supposed to be a 12 week series, but not everyone responded. To be honest, I’m worried about having too much of a good thing and overdoing it anyway. As such, this will be the final week of the guest series and as has been requested, I will reveal my story next Saturday.

This week I’m excited to introduce Mummy Confessions from Down Under, who wondered how she was going to tell her husband!

Baby girls' clothes I'm crushing on – March/April 2017

Here are the baby girls’ clothes I love in the shops this month.

I thought after writing Baby girls’ clothes I’m crushing on – February 2017, it’d probably be a little while before I’d be doing one of these posts again. However, so many shops have brought out lovely new clothes over the last month and I couldn’t resist doing another round-up of what I’ve seen!

You can find all these clothes and more baby clothes I love on my Baby Style board on pinterest (please give me a follow while you’re there!)

My first Mother's Day

I had a lovely first Mother’s Day, with lovely company and beautiful gifts.

Yesterday I experienced my first Mother’s Day as a mum. I think this is a big milestone for any new mum and the day takes on a whole new meaning! I think once you become a mum, as long as you had a good relationship with your mum you appreciate her a lot more. As a mother, I also appreciate my body a lot more – it’s amazing what it does throughout pregnancy and labour. Continue reading “My first Mother's Day”

A letter to my daughter at 6 months old

A letter to my baby girl at 6 months old, expressing my love for her and discussing the milestones and firsts of the past month.

Dear Autumn,

I’m sure each month goes faster than the last. How are we at half a year already, my little cutie? I can’t believe it’s been 6 months since I got to meet you and first held you in my arms.

Our Sleep Routine – World Sleep Day

Written for World Sleep Day on 17th March 2017, this post is about our sleep routine with our baby.

I love sleep, don’t you? Unfortunately, it’s something that most new parents are lacking in – unless you’re one of the lucky few! As it’s World Sleep Day today, I thought I’d discuss our sleep routine with Autumn with you.

Once we got back from the hospital after her operation, we started a sleep routine (she was 6 weeks old then). From what I’ve heard, it doesn’t sound like sleep routines work with all babies and each person/couple has to tailor it to their needs. However, this is what we do: Continue reading “Our Sleep Routine – World Sleep Day”
