On being Same-Sex Parents: Your questions answered

Today’s post is a little different – It’s Brighton Pride this weekend and whilst everyone is planning their vibrant outfits and stocking up on rainbow flags, feather boas, glitter and booze, I’m at home with a sleeping baby, reflecting on our first Pride weekend as a same-sex family and what that means to us. This is certainly different to my usual Pride plans, thats for sure! So, I thought this might be a good time to share a window into our lives and our dynamic as a same-sex family. I recently posted on Twitter inviting my followers to ask any questions…

Water Babies Chapter 1: A review

Yesterday we finished our Water babies Chapter 1 baby swimming lessons with our amazing underwater photoshoot, so whilst it’s all fresh in my mind I thought I’d sit down this morning with a coffee in hand and write all about our experience as first timers at Water babies swimming lessons. There is so much information and that I want to share, so this might be a long one, but if you are interested in baby swimming lessons (or just love cute pictures of Violet in the water), stick with me as hopefully this will be an ‘everything you need to know’…

Can you even call yourself a blogger if you haven’t watched 20 speed cleaning videos on Youtube or bought a bottle of the Method Anti-bac spray? Probably not. I’m also laughing at myself as I used to sucked in by blogger trends to buy the latest eyeshadow palette or overpriced scented candle, now I’m hooked on the latest cleaning product trend – how life changes. Anyway, this post was off to a slightly rambly…

Getting out and about with a new baby: My Ergobaby 360 review

As a new Mum I found getting out and about with a newborn baby incredibly difficult. I never thought that would happen as where I live in Brighton, I see new parents parading along the seafront every day with the tiniest of babies – sleeping peacefully in their prams whilst their parents stroll along enjoying an ice cream in the sun. For us, Violet wouldn’t settle in her  pram for weeks – I felt totally stuck and stayed in the house a lot. At about 5 weeks and about to lose my marbles, I decided I’d try babywearing as I…
