Help! 12 Weeks and Teething | When NUBY gets it right

‘Teething normally begins at around 6 months of age’.  Google, you liar. Twelve weeks old and teething has hit us like a tonne of bricks. Our first two months of newborn life were filled with puke and discomfort, to put it bluntly. Harrison’s inability to bring up wind, and desire to feed 24/7 meant that pretty much all of his milk in the first few weeks ended up projectiled over himself, myself, or our couch. As we neared three months…

I’m a Judgmental Parent | Baby Wearing Mothers Are Pack Ponies

Loose Women publicized their debate on the ‘Pack Pony Baby Wearing Mothers’, and it’s forced me to come to terms with the reality of parenting.

It costs £2 to feed and educate a child in Zambia every single day, a mere £2 to allow them to have future prospects, and keep them healthy; well, as healthy as can be achieved through nutrition alone.

H is 3 Months Old

Harrison is 3 months old. I have a three month old baby. I honestly cannot get my head around this. I can hand on heart say that my pregnancy (which was essentially just over 3 months long) felt like the longest stretch of time in the world.
