• 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…

Adam Urato and two other mums that suffered of depression during pregnancy and took antidepressants – Becky Harks and Rhiana Maidenbergand.

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.…

  • The “no discipline” technique aftermath

    At the beginning of July I was telling you about the “non discipline parenting” as told by Naomi Aldort. Back then my daughter was going through lots of tantrums! One every day was lucky. We usually had a couple every day first one definitely to happen because she had to go to nursery. Back then we had all these rules that we were following religiously like the “time out” and the “reward chart” and so on. As we were desperate we said that we will try everything. So I start watching more of Naomi’s you tube videos and we tried to apply as much of the SALVE as possible. You can…

  • The no discipline technique

    Hope you all had a nice weekend! Today I would like to you about “parenting”. Do you follow a particular method of parenting? You know like the “Baby whisperer” method or “Gina Ford” method or Supernanny’s method. I think when my daughter was a baby I was mostly following the Baby Whisperer methods. Her approach fitted with me. It seemed more human I guess. As she become a toddler Supernanny’s methods appeal more to me and my hubby. So we start implementing the “time out” method and the “reward” method. Sometimes she is ok with it but most of the time she hates being put in time out. I guess…
