    How not to be the perfect parent

    When hubby and I decided to have kids we didn’t actually wondered if we will be good at it or not. Ok that’s a lie. Hubby always said that I will make a great mother. But I always disagree. Nobody can be good always. Everybody makes mistakes in life and we make lots with our kids.Our grandparents made mistakes with our parents. And our parents (although they might try to deny it) made mistakes with us.So for sure we are prone to make mistakes with our kids even though they will be different mistakes and not the ones that our parents made with us.But do we need to be perfect…

  • How to baby proof your home

    My Baby Anastasia is now 6 months old! I just can’t believe it! I know I keep saying here quite a lot but time it’s passing way too fast! In the last 3-4 weeks Anastasia passed quite a few milestones. She started solids, she now sits up on her bum properly (well for about 5-10 min at the time so I still need to make sure I put pillows around her), rolling from front to back and from back to front and even crawling. Well it’s not a perfect crawling but she’s getting around more or less which makes me worry about the environment she lives in. In our apartment…

  • Baby A is eating food!

    So long the days when my baby was happy with only having boobie milk! Since about 2-3 weeks ago Anastasia started showing the signs that she is ready for solids. Or better said that the milk is just not enough anymore.Now I know it is not the first time I’m doing it…the weaning I mean. With Kara I bought lots of books before and after I started weaning. So as you can imagine I read lots and lots but this time around especially because these days I prefer the online world it is easier or me to check for information about anything in general online. All the parenting specialist have…

    My breastfeeding journey and my tips

    It really feels like a journey. You know I actually thought that breastfeeding will come a lot easier the second time around but it certainly was not the case. It was actually harder this time. At least this is the way it felt. With my first daughter, I got sore and bleeding but then I realised that the position was not good so when I change the way I was holding her everything was ok and I managed to breastfeed her up to 9 months. With this last pregnancy it was a bit different…. It started well but my baby didn’t seem to be able to open her mouth properly.…

  • Keep Safe Whilst Driving With The Kids

    It is not only distractions from your mobile or sat which can cause road accidents, but those from passengers too. Children rarely enjoy long car journeys and cramped conditions can easily result in bickering, removal of seat belts and other actions you’ll feel compelled, as a parent, to attend to. However, taking your eyes off the road even momentarily could result in loss of control and a serious accident. Keeping kids entertained and happy whilst on a long car journey is key in preventing accidents. However, there are other things to bear in mind in order to stay safe on the road. Preparation Children will have little concept of what…

    Yesterday evening I was invited by Huffington Post to take part in a live interview via Google + hangouts with DR. Adam Urato and two other mums that suffered of depression during pregnancy and took antidepressants – Becky Harks and Rhiana Maidenbergand.

So what is this new study is actually saying about the SSRI antidepressants and pregnancy? Apparently their is a connection between taking the antidepressants and pregnancy complications and birth defects. So what do we…

  • My top 5 pregnancy apps

    When I was pregnant with my boogie I was using a Blackberry. A couple of years ago however I bought my first iPhone. So when I found out I was pregnant again one of the first things I’ve done(and hubby) was to download some apps to help us keep a track of what it’s happening with the baby and mummy. With my first pregnancy i read a lot of books and I had a written diary. Plus I was checking Babycentre UK daily for updates. So as you can imagine what was the first app I downloaded on my phone isn’t it? The order the apps are enumerated is aleatoric.…
