T I M E F L Y I N G B Y / / it really is, so fast. I can't believe you were 7 months yesterday little man. Every day you amaze me with what you've learnt. This past month has been such a massive time of development for you I can barely keep up. But don't stop for me, I'll just work harder to keep up with you!! . . #growingsofast #7months #7monthsold #sevenmonths #sevenmonthsold #learning #firsttimemum #firsttimemumma #firsttimemummy #firsttimemama #firsttimemom #firsttimemommy #motherhood #parenthood #instabubba #mommyblogger #instamummy #mummyblogger #mummybloggerau #brisbanemums #aussiemums #lovefinleyrocco

𝕄𝕪 𝕕𝕚𝕗𝕗𝕚𝕔𝕦𝕝𝕥 𝕓𝕒𝕓𝕪 🍼 So my gorgeous smiley well behaved babe has not always been this way, up till 3 ish months she had such horrendous colic & reflux I used to cry atleast a few times a week and call my mum to help me and text Mike with a photo of a screaming Maisie and sad face saying ‘SOS’ there’s no doubt about it - she was a difficult baby. Colic was awful and Maisie would cry from about 5.30pm till 9pm EVERY NIGHT. Just as Mike would walk in the door from work it would start I think he thought it was him. We tried everything and even went to see a cranial osteopath which did give us some relief for a little bit of time. For when I have my next baby I will try and not worry so much and relax I’m sure me being so anxious about her upset actually made her worse. It’s so hard to relax when your baby is hysterical for the 3rd hour in a row. My advice to anyone who baby is suffering with colic and reflux is - be patient. It will pass. I know it will be so hard but soon your baby will be over it and you’ll have a happy baby. Someone told me weeks 6-10 are the hardest 🤦🏼‍♀️ #postedbyamie #amieandleah #labouringforlove #firsttimemom #firsttimemum #firsttimemummy #babygirl #babyboy #colicbaby #colic #refluxbaby #reflux #gavisconbaby #gaviscon #wingingit #mumlife #momlife #mum #helpfultips #maisietovey #leahandamie #mumlife #witchinghour #thewitchinghour #whereisthewine

Our Vitamin Sea baby. When he wasn’t stealing my sunnies, Nyjah was totally fixated on the waves. Even though it was super windy, and I’ve caught his lurgy, a day at the ocean was definitely what we all needed to feel free. It’s the ultimate cure for anything in the moment, so right now my hot lemon and pineapple juice will have to do.

I’m fully obsessed with my SS19 range 😍 This mint is perfect to wear during the warmer months! I’ve outgrown my website, so I’m currently creating (from scratch, it’s harder than it looks🤯) brand new shiny website! My current website is still up & running but with a different address, so you can still treat yourself to one of the new items 😉 (Link in bio) 💜💜💜

This week's episode of my #podcast "The Biggest Fan of Your Life" features my dear friend Lacey Tomlinson! . Lacey is one of the people who inspired this podcast. In this episode, Lacey lightheartedly and vulnerably shares about the anticipation and fears she's experienced on the eve of being a first-time parent, which has been quite a ride. Originally, she was told she'd be having a baby girl. Then, 8 1/2 months into her pregnancy, she was told she'd be having a baby boy! . Lacey shares some wonderful reflective exercises like the list of 100 Things That Make Her Happy and Writing Letters to her past, present, and future self. She also discusses her values of kindness and trying new things, her life goal of being Leslie Knope, and the wonderful story of The Steve Cats, as well as excellent advice on How to be Strategically Lazy and How to Look Like You Have Your Life Together. You're gonna love her stories, her humor, and her heart. . . Download and Listen! Subscribe and Rate 5-stars on Itunes/Podcast App or Podbean. Link in Bio.

Little legs 😍 ⠀⠀ We’ve been living in this house for a few months, all the while preparing to do a massive renovation project.. and we’re so nearly there! In the next couple of weeks we’ll be moving out for a while to avoid the worst of the work. I’m simultaneously excited and excited! I’m so ready to start but dreading having a building site for a home.

We’re looking forward to the beach tomorrow!🌍🌞 • • • • • • • • #firsttimemummy #lifestyleblog #mummyblogger #houserenovation #impregnant #werehavingababy #29weekspregnant #imengaged #engagement #imgettingmarried #heputaringonit #goodthingscomeinthrees #home #makinahouseahome #adventure #decorating #mummytobe #mrsguppytobe #australia #adventure #travelling #travellingdownunder

AD{gifted} We were very kindly sent this beautiful feeding set by @babybjorn last week to test out ahead of the new colour launch TODAY! As you can see it's been a big hit with Reuben! It's so practically designed to help a toddler succeed at feeding themselves. The clover shaped plate stays put on the table and the walled edges allow your child to scoop up their food easily! The cup is easy to hold and hard to knock over (Reuben just pours it 🙈) and the spoon and fork are a perfect size and easy to grip. The set comes beautifully packaged and would make a lovely gift! We also love these bibs! They catch all the mess, adjust easily and are easy to clean 🙌 the brand new colours are powder yellow, powder blue, powder pink and powder green and can be purchased from the baby bjorn website. They definitely have our seal of approval 😊 #weaning #weaningbaby #babyledweaning #toddlerfeeding #toddlerlife #raisingtoddlers #toddlermum #mumsofboys #boymum #mummybloggeruk #mblogger #ukparentbloggers #familyblogger #ukmums #mumtribe #mumandreu #dailymotherhood #honestparenting #realmama #respectfulparenting #productreview #unitedinmotherhood #thehappynow #firsttimemummy #fiercelittleones #letthembekids #fulltimemum #sahmlife

It's Monday. Appreciate the beauty, as my son says, of the "tall tall trees." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But if you don't like where you are- while massive in their strength, gorgeous in their glory, rooted deep- you are not a tree in that you were meant to MOVE ❤️. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #moveandact #ollinandwell

C L I N G Y T O D D L E R- well Monday is certainly living up to expectations today. With Rich still not well and me needing to go have some blood tests done, I decided it would be ok to leave Dexter at my sisters for half an hour. We go there nearly every day and she has two children so I was confident he would be ok. And he was until my sisters friend turned up and he started uncontrollably crying. There was nothing my sister could do to stop him and by the time I got there he was proper sobbing, the kind where they can’t breathe through the tears. I love the fact he needs me so much but at times it can be really draining and even when I’m in the house with Rich, Dexter hangs off my leg till I pick him up. Before I had a baby I used to think it must be something a mother does that makes a child so needy but from an early age I tried to leave him as and when I could, especially when I needed to be away shooting 12 hour weddings. It seems as he’s gotten older it’s got worse to the point where I actually hate leaving him and the thought of child care just isn’t worth it to me, not that we can afford it right now anyway. I’m just hoping by the time he’s 3 we will be able to take advantage of the free child care and he won’t be so clingy! Has anyone else experienced this and do they grow out of it?

I'm so glad I harvested my colostrum, it turns out Harriet doesn't like feeding at all. I've been trying to breastfeed since she was born but she's been too sleepy and hasn't been interested in food. Therefore we've been able to use the colestrum we froze to finger feed. I'm still trying to express more to store but we have had to cup feed her some formula just to get something in her as she'd only managed 20ml in 24 hours which was worrying. Apparently cup feeding doesn't interfere with breastfeeding so I'll be able to continue to try. Fingers crossed she gets an appetite soon. Also I've got to say how fantastic and supportive everyone at Chesterfield Hospital have been. They've been really encouraging with loads of advice and absolutely no pressure of breastfeeding whatsoever. Thank you! 😊 #colostrum #colestrumharvesting #harvesting #feeding #breastfeeding #formulafeeding #food #whateverisbest #trying #fingerfeeding #cupfeeding #aptimal #midwife #firsttimemummy #newmum #newbaby #baby #motherhood #mumlife #mummyblogger #mummy #daughter #babygirl #girl #tea #love #chesterfirld #derbyshire

Mama wants a rocking chair! The first item for the baby is really the first item for mama. We have a one bedroom flat and although there will be no nursery, a rocking chair was something I really wanted. After checking the options and price vs look vs impatience, we bought the ikea wicker “GRÖNADA”. It’s my new favourite spot by the window and a perfect place to daydream!

This is my little bambino’s bed, we have the Chicco Next2Me crib, which again can be pretty pricey but we purchased second hand from @ebay_uk. Everything is removable and washable; it’s so handy having it next to the bed opened up, as I had a c-section it was a priceless buy! RJ is so tall aswell that he would of outgrown a Moses basket in a month. The Sleepyhead Deluxe fits perfectly inside and we have little lights around it so instead of putting lamps on during the night when he wakes we put the fairy lights on so it’s a dull light that doesn’t wake him more than needed. (We will remove the lights when he knows his hands can grab 😂) he has a blanket if needed, his #ollietheowl by his side and a teddy 💙 #mummyblogger #mummydiaries #mummy #sleepyheaddeluxe #instamum #instapic #baby #babies @chicco_international #chicconext2me #sleep #babysleep #firsttimemummy #simple #cheap #affordable #secondhand #babyboy #mummyandbaby #son #babyblog #instablog #motherhoodunplugged #happy #bedtime

• M O N D A Y B L U E S • • • • Last night was a verrrrry long night. Our poorly bubba has her 3rd tooth breaking the skin and we can see another 2 coming towards the gum. She’s had a raging temperature all night, all bunged up, dribbling like crazy, and lots of tears. Laying on mummy’s chest is the only place she wanted to be(which means I’ve had 0 sleep🙈😩) We have tried Calpol,Nurofen, cool teethers, dentinox & anbesol... can anyone else recommend anything that helps please?! #baby #babygirl #teethingbaby #teethingproblems #anbesolliquid #mummy #daddy #firsttimeparents #firsttimemummy #mummyproblems #cuddles

My little babba slept 10.30-6 last night 🤗 we then co-slept untill 9.45! My husband got up for work so RJ came into bed with me, I breastfed him on and off during the morning, when he would wake and search for me himself 💙 now he’s full of beans after a good night sleep and I feel like a new women! Morning cuddles are my favorite time, co-sleeping I was totally against before having a baby, but now it’s my favourite time; just the two of us, cuddled and drifting in and out of sleep. Read up all the safety guidelines for co-sleep and don’t be afraid of it, it’s a lovely time to be with your baby 😘🤗 (and to be honest, I’ll take anything to get more sleep) #mummyblogger #mummydiaries #mummy #instamum #instamummy #mummyunplugged #reallife #babyblog #mumlife #instababy #instapic #firsttimemummy #choices #cosleep #sleep #playtime #babyplay #parenthood

Good ol'Monday! Whatever your day one is about today, you got this 👊 I'm starting my mission to focus on my physical health today by doing the @thebodycoach #sss90dayplan I woke up this morning and didn't have any of the stuff to make a breakfast from the plan, my baby boy was being needy, it was miserable and grey outside.. wow so many brilliant excuses that I could have used to derail me. But not today Satan! We shaped up and shipped out to get everything we needed to start the day right. I've started many a fitness mission only to fall off the wagon after a day or two, sometimes after only a few hours. I used to do exactly the same when I was drinking... I won't drink tonight or I'll only have one or two would often end in a triple dismount off the wagon. All I learnt was that it made me feel totally rubbish. So whatever your day one is today, as my dad always says, make it count ✨ . . #monday #mondaymotivation #fitness #fitnessmotivation #sobriety #alcoholfree #alcoholfreelife #teetotaler #joewicks #fitnessjourney #firsttimemummy #babyweightloss #postpartumweightloss

The early weeks and months of motherhood is different for everyone. But while differences can be vast, they are also sometimes weirdly similar. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You might have had a difficult pregnancy or a lonely and traumatic first year of parenthood. But what many stories show is also how resilient new mums can be, and how critical organisations like @PANDAnational and @gidgetfoundation are in helping expecting and new parents to recover from perinatal anxiety and depression.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💗⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I got an email not long ago with a story that really resonated. This beautiful mother, let's call her "Michelle", returned home with her daughter a few days after the birth, she found the house she and her partner had just moved into had not been unpacked at all in the four weeks she had been in hospital. On top of that, Belinda’s family lived on the other side of the country. Belinda felt isolated and unsupported, which led into a spiral downwards into postnatal anxiety and depression.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💗⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I wasn’t sleeping very well,” says Michelle. “I had this two hour feeding schedule to help my daughter put on weight. I had to go and get her weighed every few days. And even when she was sleeping and I had a chance to sleep, I just lay there with my mind churning.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💗⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And that's just the beginning. The story goes up and down from there. And it isn't the only one. But the positive message from it is that after sharing her story with people around her and the people at @PANDAnational helped her so much and she is more connected to herself and her daughter than ever.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💗⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To be honest, sharing my own story and building @outandaboutbaby has had almost had a transformative effect on the way I parent as well. We are creating a resource to inspire, encourage and share that we are all in it together and at various stages, we all go through the same thing. We want to share a message of hope & redemption, not guilt. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💗⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As @Hillaryclinton once said, we are "Stronger Together."

Back home with my baby. Sometimes you just need to have a break and catch up with that other guy you made a baby with...we had the best time and yet we talked about Cohen 90% of the time.
