What to pack in your hospital bag

I’ve been putting it off for weeks but I’ve finally taken the plunge and started to order a few things for my hospital bag ready for the new baby’s arrival. I’m a little bit paranoid I’m going to go into labour early and that it will be a speedy one so I’m planning to be…

Farewell Maternity Leave

And just like that, a year has flown by! I’m officially back at work and trying my best to be a normal, functioning human being. The weirdest thing about it is how normal it feels already. Thank goodness for that!

It’s been a very daunting, worrying and stressful time running…

Our 9 Month Old Baby Routine

It’s been a while since I did a routine post, about 5 months in fact! Quite a bit has changed since my last post so I thought I’d pop a little 9 month old baby routine post up. I’m not sure if what I’m doing it ‘right’ but it…
