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. From birth, Harvey would wake up on average every … Continue reading Gentle Methods: Baby Sleeping Through The Night!
I’ve been asked so many questions about cloth diapering since we’ve began this journey with Harvey. I’ve done numerous videos about it on my youtube channel, but thought it may be more straightforward to write a blog post on the generalities of cloth diapering. This will give you an overview on how to get started. I will give you a brief list of the essentials … Continue reading CLOTH NAPPIES 101
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!
We recently just went on our first proper holiday as a family of three. In fairness, this isn’t the first time we’ve went abroad, but it feels like our first proper holiday. We flew from England to America when Harvey was three months old for Christmas. It was a nice holiday seeing family. This past holiday was a sunny, summery holiday with no agenda but just enjoying … Continue reading Traveling Abroad with a Baby
Today is Monday. I have never really liked Mondays. But I especially don’t like today. We just had a fabulous 10 day holiday. While 10 days may not sound like a long time, the past ten days has truly felt like forever. The best part about it was that we got to spend ten days as a solid family of three… not interrupted by daddy leaving … Continue reading Why Can’t We All Work From Home?!
One thing I’ve noticed since getting pregnant is the amount of “warnings” people give to you surrounding birth, babies, children, etc. I don’t understand why people automatically “prepare” you for the hardest stages of parenthood and hardly ever talk about the simple and unexplainable pleasure and love that will overflow your heart. 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
So… let’s talk about baby naps… They’re the best thing and the worst thing in the world! Some days you count down the minutes until their naps while other days you wish they didn’t need them so you could make plans without having to always factor them in! But I feel so completely alone in my struggle! Let me give you a little background story… … Continue reading The Nap Time Struggle…
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]
To every mum struggling to find stylish and affordable baby clothes that are “cut for cloth” (clothes that fit cloth nappies/diapers), look no further than FinnandJules! Apart from H&M baby clothes which I can’t rave about enough, it’s been very hard to find much that isn’t six months too big for him in every area except the bum area. And H&M’s baby range is quite limited … Continue reading FinnandJules harem baby trousers REVIEW
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!
