Have you seen the Tree of Life breastfeeding photo doing the rounds? Aren’t they just divine? I haven’t shared any brelfies, or any breastfeeding photo’s online before, it’s not really my thing but my gawd these are just simply amazing. I’ve seen so many people asking again and again how to do it so I had to whizz up a quick post and share with you how to do it yourself, it’s so simple and the results are just beautiful. I just love how these edits highlight the love and beauty of mother and baby in such an artistic way. I’m going to frame mine. (more…)

The Perfect Induction by The Post Modern Mammy

Something I’ve noticed on my birth story series is the lack of positive birth experiences. I’ve had three really positive experiences myself and one pretty traumatic and my unplanned homebirth is one of my most popular posts so I get it, we all like a bit of drama, it makes an interesting and exciting read. On my last pregnancy, I opted out of having an induction because I only ever heard horror stories and I was terrified, to be honest. This week The Post Modern Mammy is sharing her birth story, her induction story, the perfect induction. (more…)

Gift Guide For Baby Christmas 2016

gift guide for baby Christmas 2016

Just like last year, my gift guides have some practicality to them. Newbies and young babies don’t actually play with toys so there is no point spending hundreds on toys for ‘ah they’ll grow into them’ because really they don’t, by the time they ‘grow’ into them a birthday has passed or a Christening and the junk piles up.

I have received some of the products featured for review but I have purchased everything in the main gift thread for the new babog or prior to receiving a review copy. (more…)

With a growing and expanding business, and friendship as it seems these two women are so inspirational. And I’m a huge fan, I’ve easily got over 40 babyboo.ie bandana bibs now but don’t tell Joe, though! Here’s how we got on… (more…)
