RLT’s First Christmas


So, RLT’s first Christmas has been and gone! As usual I got massively anxious about everything, such as having people dig at my parenting methods, RLT getting overwhelmed and out of his routine, the state of the house and the cat feeling left out. Turns out, it wasn’t all that bad (with exception of the

Note to self – me six months ago


Note to self – to me six months ago, knowing what I know now. I’ve decided to write a post to myself six months ago, to get down the things I’ve learned and to encapsulate what a journey the past six months have been! Hi Crabstix So your little boy is due about now, these

What to buy a six month old for Christmas


What do you buy a six month old for Christmas?  If someone asked them what you actually wanted for Christmas, it would probably be to FINALLY get that dummy in your own mouth, or your foot! Having a June baby is great as you can split the wants and needs in six monthly intervals! So

Kielder Review


We chose Kielder as the destination for a winter break and the first holiday for RLT at aged five and a half months. Kielder Waterside is a development within Kielder Water and Forest and within the Leaplish Forest Park, which is also where the Winter Wonderland is based. We opted to go for 4 nights

Capture


I started to think that if RLT looked through images of his childhood, that there would be very few of us together. Therefore, I have had to request that my OH capture some moments when we’re together. Looking after a baby on your own for most of the day means that you get a phone

How do you feel when you give birth?


I literally couldn’t describe how I felt after I gave birth. The adrenaline and tiredness was all too much. So when my sister-in-law asked me how I felt, I simply took a few photographs. At the time I couldn’t bear anyone to look at them, but now almost five months on, I think it is

Four month sleep regression


Four month sleep regression has hit us! After sleeping through 7.30-2am only waking for dummy to be put back in before going off again at 5.30am from around 10 weeks, we seem to have reverted back to needing 1 or 2 night feeds again. I’ve read so much on the subject, so understand that how

Halloween


RLT’s first Halloween saw his cousins come round to trick or treat. Tried to dress him up as Pubert Addams but he was a wriggly little worm –  I saw another mum had done this more successfully than I, and she used hair chalk – will try again next year when he is a little

Rolling…


Rolling! So at day 135 on this earth, RLT decided it was time to roll over. Fortunately, I managed to capture the first time on video! Quite a nice end to his daddy’s week at home. I was very pleased he did it while his dad was at home, the less moments we miss due

Nuna Rebl drama


So this week a german safety test put the Nuna Rebl through it’s paces at 40mph and the results were terrifying. The seat base just snapped! Uk safety tests are done at 30mph at which the Rebl is thought to be fine, which? Found out about the German safety test and indicated to readers that

World Smile Day


‘Send me a picture of Reuben smiling’ was the instruction I received on WhatsApp – I thought ‘awww his daddy must need cheering up at work’. How silly of me. Next thing I see popping up on my facebook feed is that particular image of RLT promoting World Smile Day and for readers of Hartlepool Mail
