So it’s National Breastfeeding Awareness Week again, and all over Twitter and Facebook and various other media there are cries of “What’s the point?!”, “Why do we need more awareness?!”, “Things like this just make us mums who can’t breastfeed feel guilty again!” blah blah etc etc. Well, the point is this: UK breastfeeding rates are dropping… Continue reading
When Babyhuddle asked if any of their Elite Bloggers were interested in hosting a carnival, I jumped at the chance to showcase some excellent bloggers, and the topic of breastfeeding was one I was naturally drawn to. I have had a great response from the other Babyhuddle bloggers, so I suggest you snuggle down on the sofa… Continue reading
It’s Sunday, which means its PAPS.
On Friday 14th December, twenty six people were murdered in Sandy Hook school in Connecticut. Twenty of those were 6 and 7 year old children. The horror of this story has broken my heart and I have been sobbing for the parents and families of those poor children who never returned home from school that day.
And then I read… Continue reading
I imagine this title may invite a few spammers…..
Anyway. There has, of recent times, been a lot of talk in the parent blogging world of blogging being less about content and passion for writing, and more about popularity contests, rankings, and proficiency in all forms of social media.

At first it went fine, but then she got fussy and refused to eat much of what we offered her. Baby led weaning was suggested, and… Continue reading
Again, it’s not Monday. Again, I’m late joining in. I just can never seem to get organised on time. Sorry Fran.
Last December, The Boyfriend and I had our first night out together after The Baby was born. It was a rather daunting experience leaving our then not-quite-five-month-old with my parents, knowing she wouldn’t sleep and would more than likely scream all night. She was totally breast-fed and feeding… Continue reading
So they’re at it again, those parent-blogger types. And again, it’s all for Save The Children and their No Child Born To Die campaign. Do you remember the blog-hop back in May supporting the campaign to increase the funding for vaccines in the developing world? This time there is a call for increased funding for health workers. Without… Continue reading
The more astute (and less sleep-deprived) among you will realise it isn’t Monday. But I really wanted to join in with this meme last week, but never got round to it, and I didn’t want another whole week to go by with me not managing to link up. So, yes it is Thursday, but at least I’m doing it, OK??
O Mammy has devised a rather splendid… Continue reading
I’m joining in with the seven word linky at Doing It All For Aleyna again. My seven words to describe this week:
