With a baby brother who is rapidly growing out of his bassinet we were getting quite desperate for miss Hattie to complete her cot-to-bed transition. I admit it has been a slow process with quite a few hiccups along the way but eventually we got there! She has now totally settled into the new sleeping quarters and is enjoying the freedom it comes with, hopping [read more]

It may surprise you but even after six kids and with more than 53 months of breastfeeding under my belt I am still learning new things. As someone who always has an oversupply of milk I have seen lots of precious breastmilk drip away, soaking piles of towels every day. Of course I realised this was a real waste, but I was also hesitant to [read more]

When I walked (or should I say waddled?) into the delivery room at almost 41 weeks pregnant I loudly informed Hip Daddy that, compared to my five previous pre-term babies, this one was surely going to kill me.

With just single digits to go until our baby is due to arrive I have been feeling rather up and down. On the one hand I am savouring these [read more]

Snuggle up in style with Pappe

As I am once again unpacking all my newborn things for the arrival of baby no.6 it is clear that our hand-me-downs hold many special moments and wonderful memories for our family. Touching the tiny clothes I remember quiet hospital cuddles, the ride home, sneaky snoozes, first walks outside and loads of precious photos and I feel incredibly grateful for the gift of our babies.

I totally get it, after five babies my friends and family really don’t know what to get us anymore for baby no.6. Baby’s wardrobe is already filled with gorgeous clothes and we are fully kitted out with pram, carrier, car seat and other baby gear, all that is left is for baby to grow bigger and stronger before its arrival in September. However one thing [read more]

While Hip Daddy was exploring sunny Japan last week dressed in a short-sleeve t-shirt I tried my hand at (thankfully short-term!) solo-parenting at home where it was definitely far from warm and pleasant. I have discovered I have absolutely zero talent for lighting wood fires and am so relieved hubby is home again to keep us cosy and warm. The older kids are happy to [read more]
