Gentle Methods: Baby Sleeping Through The Night!

As with my post on cloth diapering, this post is written due to popular demand. I’ve sent basically the same long message to many friends and acquaintances after they’ve followed my [and Harvey’s] journey from waking up countless time at night (yes! countless! some nights I lost count after 14) to sleeping 12-13 hours at night.

First Father’s Day! … and it was a posh one!

I wouldn’t have thought that 2015 would be our first year for Father’s Day! So much has changed just in the past year! But I love everything about our life! I love that I have a husband who is a fantastic father. He is so patient with both me and Harvey. He is strong for us both when we aren’t, and he’s been so supportive … Continue reading First Father’s Day! … and it was a posh one!

I have felt like I couldn’t simply be excited or even have an … Continue reading ‘Oh, just wait until…’ … Can’t we just celebrate together

Favourite Cloth Diapers! [updated]

Now that sweet Harvey is seven months old, we’ve finally achieved “stash happy” status! We’ve added, subtracted and tweaker our cloth diaper stash to our essentials! We have two categories when it comes to cloth diapers and a sub-category… We have day and night diapers and at home and out diapers…. We use totally separate day and night diapers because the day ones wouldn’t be … Continue reading Favourite Cloth Diapers! [updated]

Harvey’s (and mummy’s) 6 month update!

It seems like just yesterday our life was totally different and it was only us two (Tom + Andrea)… It’ so true when people say “your whole life is going to change when your baby is born”. Everything changes! OVERNIGHT!  Some changes are very fun and easily adaptable while others have been a bit hard to adjust to. But of course, it goes without saying that everything … Continue reading Harvey’s (and mummy’s) 6 month update!
