Memory Bear

You only need to glance through my blog to know that I'm absolutely a borderline hoarder. I keep everything that belongs to or was made by Elijah. Keeping his newborn baby clothes just folded up in a box seemed like such a shame, but all the memory blankets started at £65+ which is just waaaay… Continue reading Memory Bear

Post Baby Sins

Before I had a baby, I was one of those non-parents who definitely did not know best. One of those 'oh I'd never let my future kid scream like that in public' and 'isn't that kid too old for a dummy' because let's face it, a few mates with kids and I had a motherhood degree. Right? WRONG. So… Continue reading Post Baby Sins

Making Memories With Cheerz

Okay, I'm not actually making memories with Cheerz, but they're doing a grand job on helping me store the memories that have already been made!

I'm using them on Elijah in the day time, I haven't quite mastered night time cloth as he's a real heavy wetter and we haven't found any to work at night. I'm obsessed with bambino miosolos… Continue reading Cloth Nappies So Far

Why I’m Glad Elijah Woke Me At 4am

Last night, Elijah and I went up to bed at our usual 10pm (ish) time. He fed to sleep, as normal. He then awakened at 1am, 2.30am and once again at 4am. Sometimes he wakes just for me to give him a quick rub of the belly, others to pop his dummy back in. Most of… Continue reading Why I’m Glad Elijah Woke Me At 4am
