Potty Training A Toddler During Lockdown

Back in February, when everyone was still going about their lives freely, I was tentatively worrying about potty training. Going into parenting I always said it was the bit I was least looking forward to - how do you teach someone to wee or poo into a hole?! It was always something that worried me… Continue reading Potty Training A Toddler During Lockdown

The real reason mums post hundreds of baby photos

Before I had a baby myself, it used to annoy the life out of me that people, especially first time mums, would share pictures of their child on social media every blooming day.

7 Things I’ve Learned in my First Month as a Parent

1. You can sing pretty much anything to a baby And you will. Starting off quite sensibly with nursery rhymes, I quickly realised I'd forgotten many of those a long time ago. This resorted in singing some of my favourite songs, then singing a basic running commentary of life.
