I started potty training my nearly 3 year old about 4 months ago really but my daughter was absolutely petrified of the potty. She would hold her wee in all day long to avoid sitting on it. We tried the toilet instead, still the same. We covered her potty in stickers. The same. I bribed … Continue reading Potty Training
Our latest addition to our family is now 1 month old today. Another little girl to finish the family. I definitely hadn't imagined just how tough it was going to be... I was preparing for sleepless nights and endless crying. Instead I've been blessed with another brilliant sleeper and content baby. Part of that I … Continue reading When 1 becomes 2

I even spoke to one who said she felt as though … Continue reading Reasons my child is crying (and why we shouldn’t judge)
