Mum Life — Pregnancy

Food For Thought

It’s crazy to think that the world we live in today would make any parent feel inadequate when it came to feeding their child, and by this I mean the age old saying of 'boob is best'. Fuck that, I say! Instead my mantra is 'fed is best'.  The reason that I felt compelled to write about this is because in my early months of being a mum I did something called mixed feeding, and the more I talk to new parents or parents-to-be about this, the more I realise that this isn’t something that is typically talked about until...

Weird Shit That Happens In Pregnancy

Child birth modern motherhood mom life motherhood mum life Pregnancy

Looking back on sex ed classes at school, they were obviously bloody useless because up until the time that I downloaded a period tracker app, I was of the assumption that you could get knocked up at any point during your cycle that you weren't bleeding. NEWS FLASH! Nup. Pregnancy is fucking weird, man. There is SO much you don't get taught about.

So I'm here to tell you about some of the weird shit that might...

The Mental Load

Let me just rattle off an example of a day in the life of a mum. Well, me. This is a day in the life of me and I'm a stay at home mum so I'm just going to throw it out there and say that this could probably cover a lot of other mums (the ones I've spoken to, at least). My day starts when my baby wakes up, which is usually at the same time my partner gets up for work (6:15am) because my two-year-old comes into our bed every night so his alarm usually wakes her too....
