Separation Anxiety – Why Is Our Toddler Suddenly a Koala Bearby

As the dad to a breastfed baby I’m pretty used to being the least favourite parent. I’ll admit that at times it’s bothered me and I haven’t liked the fact our daughter VERY CLEARLY prefers my wife. But it is what it is. Then all of a sudden we’ve entered the wonderful world of bastard separation anxiety! Now I’m the walking physical form of Satan and our toddler is a koala bear. Or koala bearby. See what I did there? Like a baby, but a koala? I’m totally making koala bearby a thing by the end of this post. Separation…

Celebrating 18 Months of Breastfeeding with Breastmilk Jewellery from Eternally Cherished

When my wife was approaching the 18 month mark of her breastfeeding journey I didn’t have a clue how we could celebrate it. For the one year mark, I made a milking boob cake. But I could hardly repeat that. So I finally decided to look into something that she’s wanted for quite a while, and that’s breastmilk jewellery. Fortunately, I had the help of Eternally Cherished to create a breastmilk bead to celebrate the milestone.

Breastfeeding Stations: Show of Support or Telling Mothers to Feed in Private?

My wife and I recently attended Abergavenny Food Festival. Whilst there we saw something that I no doubt many others have seen plenty of times before: a breastfeeding station. My first thought when I saw it was “oh look, that’s awesome” but when I really started to think about it, I started to question what message it was really sending. Are Breastfeeding stations a helpful show of support or an indirect way of telling mothers to breastfeed in private? That’s the question that came to my mind when I saw this. Are these breastfeeding stations merely a very subtle, even…

Breastfeeding in Public: Learning to Feed with Confidence

As I started my breastfeeding journey I was worried about two things: not physically being able to do it, and breastfeeding in public. Fortunately the first worry didn’t turn it to much. I had moments where it was a real struggle – like every mum probably does – but I never questioned whether I could physically do it once I started. Breastfeeding in public, on the other hand, was still something that worried me. Breastfeeding in Public: the Early Days The early days are pretty rough; it’s a bit like living in a fog.
