Bumps & Babies Round-up: Newborn advice

I’ll let you in on a secret; I wrote this round-up early as I knew that I’d have a newborn to be dealing with once the publish date rolled around! In fact, shortly after submitting March’s round-up, I discovered that my C-section date needed to be brought forward by two weeks! So, I thought I’d […]

Bumps & Babies Round-up: Positive C-section stories

Since my last round-up I’ve had a scan at 32 weeks and my baby was breech. The decision was made to book me in for an elective caesarean ‘just in case’ the baby doesn’t turn. I had a C-section with my first baby (I seem to make breech babies!) and I’ve written a post all […]

Bumps & Babies Round-up: Announcements

It feels like the whole world is making baby news announcements at the moment! So, I thought I’d share some of the lovely announcements that I’ve come across recently, for my first ever BritMums Roundup! Thankfully, I’m expecting my own baby, due next month (eek!), otherwise I’d be feeling mega broody right about now. I […]

Bumps & Babies Round-up: Introducing a new baby, milestones & a rainbow baby

I’ve loved 2017 so far and wholeheartedly jumped on the positivity/ New Resolutions bandwagon. The chance to shake off all the bad habits developed last year and start afresh. Maternity leave ended for me a few weeks ago so it was a double new beginning. During my nine months off or “holiday” as my husband jokes […]

Baby, look at you now!

There are few things more heartwarming than photos of cute kids – especially at Christmas! It is the time of year when there are all the ‘looking back at the year that was’ programmes on TV so I thought it would make a fun blog post to show you what the BritMums team looked like… […]

Bumps & Babies: Ending on a high note

Hello… and festive greetings! How quickly has 2015 whizzed by? I started the year with high hopes of finding my perfect job after leaving the bright lights of London for a chilled-out, suburban Solihull. Somehow I’m finishing the year five-and-a-half months pregnant. I say “somehow”, we all know how that happened! But it’s funny how […]

Bumps and Babies Round-Up: Love After Baby

How easy is it to keep the spark alive in your relationship once a baby arrives? I will, quite coyly, admit my husband and I have been sleeping in separate bedrooms since the birth of our daughter last year. Our arrangement wasn’t supposed to last for ten months. The idea started so my husband could get […]

Bumps and Babies Round-up: Summer’s coming

Summer is almost upon us. Which is excruciatingly exciting but also fills me with a faint niggle of fear. I am talking about travelling on a plane with a baby. I’ve spoken to a few new mum friends who are also a tad terrified of this new, unfamiliar travelling-with-a-baby-abroad scenario. It seems we’re not alone. […]

Bumps and Babies Round-up: Food, glorious food

What a difference a month can make… Following my previous Weaning Woes post where my 7-month-old wouldn’t eat any green food – I can quietly rejoice as we’ve turned a corner. My daughter now happily munches away on pretty much everything, even greens. It took us a good three weeks of trying certain foods over […]

Bumps and Babies Round-up: Weaning Woes

It’s been a month of ups and down. I started the month by writing a letter to my 6 month old to celebrate her half birthday. That was a nice moment, which hopefully she’ll enjoy reading in years to come. However, on a downside, this month I’ve learnt weaning isn’t as much fun as the happy […]
