PARENTING ADVICE YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO

When you are pregnant, suddenly everyone feels entitled to offer their ‘advice’. Most of the time it is well-intentioned but it can be a bit intimidating as first time parents. I remember being told to ‘Sleep when the baby sleeps!’ and that turned out to be impossible to do safely as Freddie would only nap in the sling/on me until we did some nap training at seven months old.

In my experience, a lot of the advice is completely useless! However there are a few things that I was told, that I agree with and I think you should listen to.

MY MOTHERHOOD | THE FIRST YEAR |  0-6 MONTHS

PART ONE

One of the biggest comforts to me during this crazy motherhood journey so far has been reading about the experiences of other Mama’s with babies of a similar age or just ahead. Today’s post is a collab with three other lovely Mama’s with babies of all different ages. Whether these posts reassure, entertain, encourage or amuse, I hope they help you to feel a little less alone.

Emilia has just turned 4 months old, and I am loving this age. We had a tricky period over the last two months because she had a posterior tongue tie which wasn’t diagnosed for a while. View Full Post

PART TWO

One of the biggest comforts to me during this crazy motherhood journey so far has been reading about the experiences of other Mama’s with babies of a similar age or just ahead. Knowing that the way my baby was behaving was ‘normal’ reassured me and reading about all of the things he was about to learn helped me to look forward to the stages ahead. That is where the idea for this post came from. Today’s post is a collab with three other lovely Mama’s with babies of all different ages. Whether these posts reassure, entertain, encourage or amuse, I hope they help you to feel a little less alone.

The age Freddie is now has been my absolute favourite so far. He is so responsive and engaging and there has been such an explosion in what he can do and what he understands. Now that he has a predictable routine, going out to different places is a lot less stressful. Freddie is so inquisitive and I feel like I am seeing the world through his eyes, as cheesy as that sounds!
