The September Issue

There’s something about September, maybe it’s the end of the Summer holidays and the start of a new term, or the changing of the seasons but it feels like a good time of year to start something new. I read that although January is still the time that most people look for new jobs, September…

Baby wearing in the heat

I’m a massive advocate for baby wearing, in fact I’d encourage all parents to consider it before buying a pushchair, if you have only one child or a reasonable gap between them, baby wearing can make your life so much easier, especially if you live in a city like London and use public transport! (Not…

Stress, anxiety and motherhood

I’ve been MIA for a few weeks due to some health issues but hopefully I’m back now and will be able to commit to blogging as often as I want rather than when my health permits. I really want to share with you all what’s been happening and some of my epiphanies over the last…

Our BIG news…

No, we’re not pregnant again! Can you imagine, 3 under three would kill me! We’ve been really busy over the past few months looking at properties and Allhumdulillah at the end of last month we completed on our first family home🙏🏾 Before we got married we had a discussion about our post-marriage living arrangements. I…

6 months postpartum

Getting to the 6 month mark post-baby feels like such an achievement. Idris is doing really well Allhumdulillah, we’ve started to wean and he’s generally a really fun and happy baby to be around. That’s all about the baby, the rest of this post will be all about me. Heads-up, I’m going to over-share, so…

Mastitis, terrible twos and teething

Some sayings, like “have your cake and eat it” make no sense! Of course I’m going to have my cake and EAT it, what else would I do with it? However, whoever said “misfortune comes in threes” pretty much hit the nail on the head. This past couple of weeks have been a shite storm…

Kylie Jenner and the myth of postpartum weightloss

I have nothing against Kylie Jenner, like almost everyone else on the planet I like to keep up with the Kardashians. However I do have very strong feels about people, women, perpetuating the myth that it’s easy to get back to your pre-baby body without investing money, time and having an army of helpers, including…

21 months v 4 months v 34 years!

These past couple of months have really had me questioning my life choices. The first baby was unplanned but the second was not! I knew I wanted to have babies close in age so they could be friends and play together. I didn’t realise, or was deliberately obtuse, as to how much my life would…

Fussy eaters …

I hope I’m a mums mum. I don’t believe in passing judgement, I won’t offer you my opinion, even when asked I’m reluctant because I don’t know the ins-and-outs of anyone’s life, and I don’t doubt it’s very complicated. Id rather not say something out of ignorance and make another mum feel bad. I’m not…
