5 things all new dads would love their partners to know

Being a new parent is tough. On both sides. But most of the support, information and just general consideration goes towards helping mums. New dads, well, they’re kind of just left to figure it out themselves. If you’re a new mum then it’s completely understandable that you’ve been pretty caught up in finding your own way. On learning how to adapt with a new baby at home. With settling into maternity leave and getting to grips with working out how to feed/wash/care for your new baby. You’ll have had midwives, health visitors and hopefully friends or family supporting you....

The truth about hair loss after pregnancy

I’m not going to lie, this one is not a happy feel good post. No. It’s a warning. A ‘just to make you aware’ post. One of those posts that you’ll think ‘wow that’s dramatic and a massive overstatement that will never apply to me…’ You lose hair after pregnancy. There. I said it. I was told this but I didn’t really believe it. And then, it happened to me.

Without feeling guilty. I’m a mum of three. I have two school age kids and one baby. I’m married too so try to find time to have a relationship somewhere in all...

I’ll admit it, some mornings when I watch my husband go off to work I’m a little jealous. He might not see it this way but it’s a break for him. He gets to go off to a magical place where no one wants him to wipe their behind, get snot off their face, give them a million snacks, break up countless fights or to never have a moments peace. I may be exaggerating a little but that’s how it feels some times. It’s not easy being a stay at home mum. You have constant demands on your time....

5 ways to make the early days more enjoyable

If you’re expecting or just had a baby then you’re probably well aware that people will delight in telling you how hard it will be. You won’t get any sleep. You’ll be sore, bruised and battered from the birth. There will be a small infant permanently attached to you. Forget about eating, washing, cleaning, shopping or anything else you might want to do. You won’t have any time to do anything. For the rest of your life… Ok that’s getting a bit dramatic but you get the idea. Now I’ve had three kids and yes, unfortunately, I can confirm...
