Looking after yourself once falling pregnant is super important! Your body goes through some amazing changes but woah is it a rollercoaster…from beautiful, luscious hair to nausea (feeling sick from the smell of your own perfume)…it REALLY is HARD work.

How do you prepare/what do you buy?
If you are thinking YES! YES! and YES! Then have a read here, where I talk through exactly what I did with both my children. They were ready in 3 DAYS!

With the lovely warm spring and summer weather approaching, your mind wanders to ALL the fun things you could be doing outdoors! Especially after being stuck inside, trying to find ways to entertain your little one, for what seems like an eternity!
As a mommy to two little humans, my mind shifts towards protection from the sun. Have you tried asking a toddler to keep their sun hat on, whilst they are running around playing? (more…)
Yep this was something that caught me off guard.
You just about get a handle on introducing your little one to food (for more on how I did this, check this out) and then the 1 year health and development review arrives.
