Weaning. I did a whole post about it here. In that post, I talked about my favourite pouches. As a parent, I only want the best for my son. At that point, it was ensuring that he was getting the nutrients and the right food for his health. That is still hugely important to me, … Continue reading Nom Nom Kids!
I know, I've said it before, but it is still an issue.. If it is green, Luke will close his eyes and throw it on the floor. Seriously - he hates anything that resembles anything healthy! I have become a bit of an expert in getting creative and hiding vegetables in everything! These muffins are … Continue reading Hidden Vegetable Lunch Muffins!
When I was pregnant, I over researched everything, and I am so glad I did! My hospital bag was prepped to perfection! I did however have to get my parents and in laws to grab more clothes for Luke and Greg because of the length of time we were in hospital. Other than that, we … Continue reading Hospital Bag Essentials
I HATE wasting food. Greg and I always do our best to be healthy and eat a good portion of fruit and veg each day, but however healthy we eat, there is always veg that ends up in the bin. At the end of the week, anything left over, I now cook up and purée … Continue reading Hidden Vegetable Spaghetti Bolognese!
Meal times. Aren't they supposed to be fun?! Well, with at least 3 meals per day (I say at least 3 because Luke is always hungry!), I am always on the look out for a way to make meal times fun. With a fussy one year old, feeding Luke is still a learning curve. Luke … Continue reading For Aisha*
Last Valentines day, was a good one for me. I was a new mum, I had this new found love for my husband after he cared for us exclusively for the first few weeks of Luke's life. I went back through the years, and dug up my last post about Valentines Day (you can find … Continue reading Valentines! MAM Soother Giveaway!!*
In April 2017, we travelled to Cyprus to visit family and have a little holiday. When I was pregnant, my husband and I decided we wouldn't take Luke abroad for the first year of his life because it would be too difficult and stressful. When my cousin contacted me to say she was having her … Continue reading Travelling to Cyprus.. With a Baby!
Here is another brilliant recipe that I have come up with for Luke. Baby breakfast bars can be extortionate! These were really easy and cheap to do, and last 3 days in a sealed tub. Ingredients 1 cup of Oats 2 Carrots 1 Banana 1 Apple 1 Box of Raisins 1 Carton/200ml of fruit juice … Continue reading Baby Breakfast Bars
Baby apps. Finding one that you get on with is really important. When I was pregnant, there were so many! But none that really did anything for me. When Luke was born, a lot of those apps became redundant and I went on the search for one that would meet my needs. Then I found … Continue reading MAM Baby Diary
As it has been over a year, I think it is finally time to post my birth story! Birth... Different for everyone! For me, it was definitely not what I imagined at all - but I did get an amazing baby at the end of it, so I can live with it! When my midwife … Continue reading Birth Story..! Essay Ahead..
