5 ways to love your post baby body just as it is

As you might have noticed from other posts, I really hate the idea that mums need to lose the baby weight in order to feel good about themselves (you can read my thoughts here). Why is it that we see our post baby body as such a bad thing? We’ve had babies. Grown them, housed them, birthed them and nourished them. Let’s cut ourselves a little slack! That said, just because I don’t think there should be any pressure on mums to lose the baby weight or be a ‘slim’ mum, doesn’t mean I’m not aware that we all...

It’s time to get rid of the pressure to lose the baby weight

I’m on a bit of a mission at the moment. For various reasons I’ve decided that the pressure to lose the baby weight is ridiculous, outdated and unfair on new mums. We have enough to worry about after a baby. Important worries include are they feeding enough? Are they healthy? Are they happy? Am I doing OK? Do I feel like I’m coping or do I need support? Am I losing weight is NOT classed as important I’m afraid. Nor should it be. However, I am not stupid and know first hand that this is an issue for a...

Why I refuse to lose the baby weight so I can just enjoy being me

I’ve lost count of how many articles I read before baby was born about how to lose the baby weight. I was adamant that the minute he came out I’d be back on to the healthy eating (after developing a serious coke habit – cans obviously – and eating my body weight in chocolate most days). As soon as the SPD went I’d get back to doing yoga, maybe even take up jogging with my eldest. I’d be fit and healthy. And get my pre-baby body back instantly… You probably already know where I’m going with this one. Needless...

The surprising problem with baby led weaning

As baby 3 turns 5 months old I am starting to think about weaning. He’s a big baby, taking a lot of milk and has started waking in the night again. He’s also taken a chip from my plate and generally stares intently at me whenever I eat or drink. I think he’s going to wean a little early. Now my first two were weaned at 5 1/2 months. They were both bottle fed so there were no clashes with the exclusive breast feeding till 6 months advice and were more than ready for food. They started on purees...

It’s OK to want to escape your life as a mum sometimes

I had one thing I wanted to do this weekend. One thing. I wanted to go shopping. On my own. For a whole day. I planned to drive to a shopping centre where I could relax, get coffee, take a leisurely stroll round the shops. Without screaming kids or having to stop to fed, clean or soothe a baby. Heavenly!!!! So when I looked out the window yesterday my heart sank. Snow. Lots and lots of snow. I wasn’t going anywhere. And all of a sudden my one single afternoon of freedom in months went out the window. Now...
