10 Post-Pregnancy Surprises You Don’t Expect

You’ve read the books. You’ve gone to the antenatal classes. You’ve politely listened to unsolicited advice from strangers at the bus stop. You’re prepared, right?

You have an idea what to expect during pregnancy and labour, and are pretty sure you will know how to change and bathe the baby. But what about you? After the birth you don’t just go back to being the pre-pregnancy you overnight. Aside from the fact that you have a teeny tiny human relying on you to fulfil their every need, your body – and mind – goes through some pretty weird things.

Don’t Fear the Mess: Pampers, Painting and Poo face!

Welcome to our first ever video blog! Clara, Izzy and I took part in the Pampers ‘Don’t fear the mess’/#PampersPooface campaign and put Pampers Sensitive Baby Wipes to the test.

Then, Clara got messy with paint and we found how well the wipes got her clean again.

13 Months Old

First steps
This month we have had first steps! On Father’s Day Clara took two steps on her own, and since then she has taken a few steps here and there.

How to Make a Memory Jar

A memory jar is a cute way to store and display some keepsakes and mementos from baby’s first year.

  1. Find a large jar and lid. For her birthday, Clara was given a pair of pyjamas in a jar – when we went to use the pyjamas the jar was too cute to just throw away, and that’s what gave me the idea of reusing it as a memory jar! You could either buy a jar, or recycle one. Just make sure that if it has had food in you give it a really good wash and sterilize it before putting your precious keepsakes inside. Warm, soapy water will easily remove sticky labels.P1100948
