I’m a new mum to a beautiful baby girl. I feel the way most new mums feel about their pride and joy. She amazes me every second and I’m completely besotted with her. But what most don’t tell you about, is how challenging it is as well. The purpose of this blog isn’t to complain, rant or rave. But it’s to create a place to share little gems I’ve learned or stumbled upon in finding my feet as a new parent. One thing I wished for in the first three months, was to find what products, methods and routines other parents were using. I didn’t have any time to do the research I wanted to. No point reinventing the wheel, I would have happily copied and pasted!
They say it takes a village to raise a child, and I’m finding that so true. Generations ago, one income was enough to sustain a household there were Nanas and Aunties around to help new mums figure out what to do. It’s a lot different today so we need to create our own support networks. So please join me and share your experiences too. *I’m not an expert, these are just my opinions and all that…
