10 Ways I’m #RockingMotherhood

I’ll be honest, being a mum, although it was the only thing I ever wanted in the world, has not been a majorly easy ride. Parenting is hard, so hard. And although, some things have come fairly easy to me, I’ve also struggled a bit. I don’t feel like I should be admitting that but I should be honest. I’m forever putting myself down and feeling bad about myself as a person, a parent and a family woman.  I’m so grateful for Naomi over at Me Becoming Mum for tagging me in the #RockingMotherhood tag, it’s been helping me to realise that actually, I’m doing great!  View Post

The End of our Journey

I shared previously, on my blog, about how our breastfeeding journey began. (You can view that HERE). But now I’m going to talk about how it ended.

As I’d said previously, I knew I wanted to breastfeed. It was the one thing I was most certain about before Bear arrived. It was important to me that I tried as hard as I could to face and defeat any difficulties we encountered before saying “I can’t do this anymore”. And hand on heart, I did just that. I tried so damn hard. Something nobody tells you about breastfeeding is how passionate you become about it before you begin. You become passionate about helping others who are struggling, seeking mutual support or just a friend you can talk to who understands (I’m not for one second discriminating anybody who doesn’t breastfeed or saying you need somebody else who breastfeeds as a friend). You also become passionate about fighting to do what you want, for whatever reasons you may have, for you and your baby. View Post

Haakaa Silicone Breast Pump Review*

I was recently contacted by Haakaa, who asked me if I’d like to try out their new breast pump and of course I jumped at the chance! I have been using a manual and an electric pump on and off, and with either struggling to find the time to express or having all the faffing of making sure each part is working and connected, the Haakaa pump was just the tool I needed.
