I’m not talking about a jokey little nibble on the ear, I’m talking about the very real urge to bite a chunk out of that delicious bottom. I was reading about this topic on another mummy blog a little while ago and felt an immediate sense of relief that it’s a real thing for people … Lire la suite Why we want to eat our babies
The ‘n’ word has become a bit of a house guest within our four walls. This is a progression from 8 month old Thalia whose only method of communication was shaking her head to my melodious chanting of ‘no nooo noooo’ – often sung completely out of context, I just thought that her little snake … Lire la suite The ‘n’ word
Since my original post on must-have newborn products I have been keeping a list of everything else I couldn’t have lived without, with the intention of giving new mummas some product advice for slighter older babies. This is not posted in real time, Thalia is 8 months old now… the blog has escaped me for … Lire la suite Must-haves for babies under 6 months

And to be honest, considering the 3 poo’s a day … Lire la suite The world of reusable nappies
Following a huge amount of advice regarding the use of a dummy (thank you mummas!!), we left it down to Thalia to decide. And as though she knew that the topic had been up for debate, she spent the following week viciously attacking her hands with her hoover mouth to get to sleep. I have … Lire la suite Joining team dummy…

When I say debating, what I mean is that François is happy to give Thalia a dummy whilst I am not, and therefore it has been discussed no further. Just the occasional sarcastic comment from Francois that ‘no, no, she doesn’t need a … Lire la suite To dummy or not to dummy
Today is Mother’s Day in France. And as such I’ve been thinking a lot about my mum, and how much I need and count on her. She’s my go to for all of my baby, relationship and life queries. After google of course. The best part is that she always knows what to say and … Lire la suite Mother’s Day
