What Breastfeeding Has Taught Me.

 
What breastfeeding has taught me


If you have read my blog for a while or follow me on social media, you will know that I exclusively breastfeed Teddy and have done since he was born four months ago. I have always been really open and honest about breastfeeding, sharing my Breastfeeding Journey and although it is possibly one of the hardest things I have ever had to do (a close second to building his fucking cot bed) I wouldn't change it for the world. I thought I would share all the things that breastfeeding has taught me, aside from needing nipples made of steel...

ErgoPouch Swaddle Sleeping Bag Review

When we found out we were having Teddy, I think we bought pretty much everything we possibly could and we felt fully prepared for all situations. Silly me. I have definitely learned my lesson & know what is a gimmick, what we never used and what we would 100% repurchase. One thing we didn't get round to buying was a sleeping bag. I'd heard a lot about them & knew they were safer than blankets but I didn't like the idea of putting a tiny baby in a huge sleeping bag that they could get lost in, I also couldn't do a swaddle to save my fucking life. Luckily for me, Teddy hated being swaddled so I never had to learn properly. However a couple of weeks ago, the temperature definitely dropped, especially at night time and I suddenly went into panic mode about Teddy getting too cold and decided it was definitely time to get a sleeping bag. We then discovered the ErgoPouch Swaddle Sleeping Bag.

Teddy's Four Month Update.

   
Baby's Four Month Update

How in the hell is my child four months old?! I feel like the months are going by quicker & quicker, it doesn't feel like two minutes since I was writing his three month update!
I can't believe how much Teddy has changed this month, his personality just grows & grows. He is reaching so many milestones, interacting with his toys, being able to focus and grab them with ease (they go straight in his mouth..) and sometimes he'll do the sweetest little giggle. Usually when his Daddy is tickling him or blowing on his belly. It just fills me with so much love seeing them together.
It's been over a year this month, since we found out we were expecting Teddy and I can't believe it. He has been in our lives for one whole year.

Autumn Goals.

  
Autumn goals I want to achieve including personal and blogging.


As much as I love Summer & the warmer months, there is something about Autumn that makes me feel really content. September, to me, marks the beginning of Autumn I love nothing more than lighting my autumnal scented candles, turning on all the fairy lights and getting cosy on the sofa. None of that pumpkin spices latte shite, I aint about that life. Eugh. It also means we are one season away from CHRISTMAS! Now that, I can get onboard with! I'm also super excited for our local firework display that takes place in Autumn, I can't wait to take Teddy. Chances are he won't give a shit, but i'll feel satisfied and like i've fulfilled some sort of mummy mission.

I thought I would give you a run down of all the Autumn goals I am hoping to get done on both a personal & blogging level. I'm going to try and do one of these for every season..

10 Things Not To Say To A First Time Mama.

  
Ten things not to say to a first time mum

One thing I have learnt as a first time mum is that people think they can suddenly ask you/give you an opinion on everything. They start rhyming off all their unwanted advice and telling you things that you really couldn't care less about. When I was pregnant I got the usual, 'oh you're massive', 'ohh when I was pregnant..' & my favourite 'how are you going to feed baby?' With my milk making titties clearly wasn't the answer they expected...If they want to ask the inappropriate questions, an inappropriate answer is what they'll get back. Since having Teddy, the comments and questions have only got worse! I thought i'd share 10 things NOT to say to a first time mum. Or any mum for that matter!

Side Note: I do like to overshare. Quite a lot...

 ENJOY!
