[Trying to] Save the planet, one nappy at a time! [AD]

Waste, Waste Everywhere… Last month we (finally) moved house after a rather stressful few months. We moved into a new build and quickly realised we hadn’t ordered our wheelie bins… not an ideal situation for a family of four. There’s nothing like packing your dirty bin bags into a car ...

Scout @ 6 Months

6 months of you Where has the time gone? It seems like just yesterday that we welcomed our little 7lb bundle into the world and completed our little family. It’s not always been easy… at times, it’s been the hardest thing in the world… But Scout has made it an ...

I Couldn’t Live Without…

I Couldn’t Live Without…

“Oh but you need *insert insanely priced ridiculous item here*…” Before we became parents for the first time, we were told about lots of things we “needed”. We were first time parents, we didn’t really know anyone else with babies so I just took people’s word for it and probably ...

Let’s Talk Placenta

This Hippy Sh*t Before I had Oscar I was clueless about the placenta… as I was with EVERYTHING surrounding birth… and babies… and parenthood (and the list goes on). But no one talks about the placenta, do they? And I suppose it’s not that important is it? It’s only the ...
