My Experience Using Newborn Cloth Nappies

Having done the cloth nappy journey since 4 weeks old with my firstborn, I decided to start once we arrived home from hospital with bub number 2. I chose my newborn nappy system several months in advance, along with being gifted a few extra things prior to bub’s arrival. If I had of known that my bub would be born 4.2kg I may have done things a little differently as I was only expecting a 50th centile baby!  Continue reading…

Next Birth After Caesarean – Navigating the System and Defending One’s Birth Rights

After the birth of my daughter, I wrote about when birth does not go according to expectations, with her delivery resulting in a caesarean section.

A Little Girl Dreams

What did you dream of growing up? Has your life unfolded in the way you anticipated it would 10, 20, 30 years ago? I recall myself in tears at the age of 16, crying to my own mother that I did not want to grow up, fearing all that life held (or didn’t hold) for me in the future as an adult. At the time I probably wanted to keep the life of little responsibility, commitment and relative freedom that I had, as it made me feel secure from disappointment.

Dads – The Unsung Heroes

There is a plethora of books, magazines, articles, blogs, websites advising and celebrating mothers, but the fathers don’t quite get the same amount of attention and glorification that is women get. Perhaps it is because trend still favours stay at home mums as the primary caregiver or more women seek out parenting advice and inspiration from other mothers.
