Saturday Share #127

Looking for my favourite book reviews and most relatable blog posts of the week? You've come to the right place.

Sammy's review has convinced me otherwise and I might… Continue reading Saturday Share #127

Feed With Confidence with Lansinoh [giveaway]

A couple of weeks ago I was approached by a PR about a post on breastfeeding with confidence and I was completely upfront: I didn't/couldn't breastfeed and so didn't  feel comfortable writing about something I hadn't experienced. But the campaign isn't necessarily about breastfeeding. The campaign is called 'feed' with confidence and they were happy… Continue reading Feed With Confidence with Lansinoh [giveaway]

Enough with the mum guilt already!

Jenson is nearly 19 months old and I've already lost count of how many times I've felt the dreaded #mumguilt. And you know what I just realised? Most of the time it's been brought on by other people's opinions rather than how I feel about my own parenting skills. And this needs to stop. I… Continue reading Enough with the mum guilt already!

Bump Watch: Week 28 – planning to breastfeed

Today I entered the third trimester - it really doesn't feel like that long ago that it seemed ages away. Another mum at pregnancy yoga (a week behind me) was saying that when we started and met the 'bigger' mums they seemed so big and now we're at that stage. I've got one more week… Continue reading Bump Watch: Week 28 – planning to breastfeed

Item of the day: Boobie blanket from Teeny Tanners

Earlier in my pregnancy I blogged about infinity scarves which keep you covered up while breastfeeding in public but I've just come across something even better - the Boobie Blanket from Teeny Tanners. I'm in love with the Movie Star blanket which is only £15.99 - perfect for every outfit for me and him!

Item of the day: Infinity scarf from The Little Black Scarf at Etsy

I plan on breastfeeding for the first four to six months but I have to admit that I feel a bit anxious about breastfeeding in public. I know it's the most natural thing in the world but I'm not the most public of people and will likely just want to hide in the corner.
