So you have considered your travel system, maybe even paid your deposit (exciting!), and decided what date you will collect your baby's buggy...
Teething is a challenging stage for your baby to endure, for some families it may last longer than others and can bring sleepless nights and tiring days. Teething can start as early as 3 months old, earlier for some babies, and in a few rare cases some babies are born with a tooth.
Tooth buds form under the gums as your baby develops in the womb, and when the gums start to bulge you know those sleepless nights could be on the horizon. Babies teeth can cut through one at a time or in groups, and generally the order they cut are the bottom middle two teeth come through first, followed by the upper middle teeth, and then the incisors, canines (cuspids) and molars. It’s so important to remember that this tough time will not last forever, teething can be torturous but it is just a phase and does end!
With around 6 weeks to go to your due date it’s a good time to start packing your hospital bags. You will need a small bag for the labour ward as well as your main hospital bag with everything you need for yourself, your newborn and your partner to make sure you are all as comfortable as possible.
My style has changed massively since Anabelle Ivy’s arrival, now it’s all about comfort and practicality. I never thought I would hear myself say those words, but it’s true. Trainers have now become my wardrobe staple – if you knew me pre baby you would have laughed if I said that!! As a mammy, and especially if you have a toddler, you need to feel comfortable as you are running around non-stop. Yet at the same time, being a stay at home mum you can loose your sense of self so easily, it’s hard, so I think it’s important to feel good and stylish in what you were are wearing. For me anyway, it makes a big difference.
I'm on my second breastfeeding journey, both fairly similar, but this one is going on a little longer than the last. Josh decided himself one day after me being away when he was 8.5 months that he was done with the boob. Max is a big boob man so seeing how that will play out.
