I am that girl who didn’t breastfeed because she didn’t want ‘scabby nipples’.
I am that girl who didn’t breastfeed because it wasn’t ‘normal’.
I am that girl who didn’t breastfeed because apparently, baby would be ‘too attached’ and I’d never have a life. (more…)

It’s that time of year again. The New Year resolutions will be flowing and if you are anything like me they’ll be broken by the end of week one. I’m serious! This year I’m doing something a little different. Together as a family, we will pay it forward. I want to teach my kids about being charitable, to give freely without expecting anything in return, I want to teach my kids to be the change they want to see in the world. This year we will be donating our time, money, clothes and even hair… Fancy joining in? Here’s a list of 25 ways you can pay it forward this year, the possibilities are endless! (more…)

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 god 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…)
If you haven’t figured it out already Christmas is my favourite time of the year. I just love watching their little faces on Christmas morning. This Christmas will be even better now that the Toddler gets’s it and the Wobbler is old enough to rip open hers, it’s all very exciting. Here’s my Christmas guide 2016, gifts for big kids, both girls and boys, and some of what will be found under our tree this year. (more…)

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…)
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. Here’s a list of gifts for a baby up to about 12 months. 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…)
