I knew you had to watch your child near enough constantly, especially during the early months BUT I didn't actually know what I was looking out for?! Every little thing she did differently I was questioning for nothing, until one day I got it right!
I am sure that 90% of new mums or even second/third time mums will feel anxious or worried about leaving the house on their own with their little bundle of joy! It has always been a part of me and something I had learnt to deal with but 'mum anxiety' was a complete different experience for me and I had to learn how to cope with it all over again...
Weaning is a minefield. How do you start, when do you start? I read numerous blogs and forums before deciding to do what I felt was best for Harper and I am happy with the way we have done it as she seems to love her fruit and veg nowadays!
Reflux in babies is incredibly hard to experience. They're so little and can't tell you how they're feeling or what is wrong. It's a guessing game and stressful for all involved. I'm just glad the Doctors took us seriously and helped us!
A Daddy's first fathers day is something really special, they deserve to be celebrated! I really tried to make David's as nice as I could considering Harper was only a month old!
Being a first time parent is hard enough, let alone being sent back to hospital two days after being discharged. Jaundice is rubbish but it could have been 100 x worse and we are just so happy that it was a fairly easy fix!
The first three months of being Mummy to Harper summed up in one blog post, from the first weeks to her sleeping & feeding pattern. Loving every day but wishing time would slow down!!
It’s so hard to make sure you have thought about everything & have bought / packed everything you will need for such a young baby when travelling abroad. So Iv put together a quick list of my ‘essential’ items whilst on holiday in Spain. We had the most amazing time & had everything Harper needed so didn’t need to panic!
There is so much stigma around baby’s immunisations / jabs & I was dreading it. Here I write about what it was actually like for us and my feelings throughout the process. I surprised myself & Harper.. well she’s definitely our little soldier!!
Moving into a bigger house was a god send, Harper got her very own nursery & I got to have the best time decorating it! We have done our best to make it warm and cosy for her & cannot wait for her to start using it!
