5 Things I Absolutely LOVE About Breastfeeding a Toddler

Breastfeeding a toddler is a little bit different to breastfeeding a baby. Don’t get me wrong, you don’t have to deal with the early day struggles of establishing a latch, or having to cluster feed on a daily basis. But that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have its own downfalls. So I’m stealing the blog away from my husband once again, and I’m giving you 5 things I absolutely LOVE about breastfeeding a toddler.

My Husband Had Postnatal Depression – But His Battle Affected Me Too

My husband cried the day we found out I was pregnant. For almost our entire relationship being a father was something he wanted to be. But when our little girl was finally born, things weren’t right. I never put much thought into the idea of him suffering with postnatal depression, but all of a sudden, that’s exactly what he was going through. I know he’s talked about his struggles a lot on this blog. But the unspoken side of mental health is often the affects it has on the people around the sufferer. So this is my story of having…

Couch to 5K Week 3: Another Weight Loss Despite Missing a Run

Every week I’m more surprised that I’m still sticking to this Couch to 5K. Unfortunately, this week hasn’t been so great though. I will hold my hands up, I’ve only managed two runs but I have managed to keep to my diet – well, aside from the few Lindor chocolates we bought last weekend – Oops! Although I still managed a weight loss, so maybe Lindor isn’t actually that bad? Or maybe I’m being hopeful. Either way, here’s my Couch to 5K week 3! First Time Missing a Run For this week I’ve mainly struggled with time. I’m a little limited to when I can…
