A day in the life of a Quinny Moodd

This is a montage of me, the Man, Baby Girl and the Boy on a day out putting the new Quinny Moodd to the test. I will be publishing a full review of the buggy after thoroughly road testing it but for now here is a preview of a day in the life of a Quinny Moodd along with some shots which show how easy it is to construct (left hand side) and collapse (right hand side).

My Baby Girl is….

13 weeks today.

Utterly gorgeous.

Loving raspberries on her neck.

Not quite able to giggle yet but I can see she is trying.

More and more aware of the world and interested in everything.

Being a cheeky madam whilst feeding and keeps pulling off to grin at me just to show me who’s boss.

Driving me crazy by waking up anytime between 5.30am and 7.30am – there is a big difference!

Very happy, chatty and smiley if she has a good nap, which thankfully now she usually does.

Soft, warm and very very strokeable.

Loud when she cries.

Impatient and will not listen to reason.

Getting bigger everyday,

Losing her hair at the back where she rubs it in her sleep.

Growing out of 0-3 month babygros.

Able to melt my heart when I wake her up and she gives me this amazing smile which seems to be saying “wow, its you again and that makes me happy”.

 

 

My breastfeeding wardrobe

As a follow up to My Maternity Wardrobe posts last year I thought I would do one on breastfeeding.

I am pleased and lucky that breastfeeding is going really well with Baby Girl as it did with the Boy, I love feeding her and seeing her calm face and fluttering eyelashes while her soft palm rests against my chest. It feels so special knowing that I am literally keeping her alive and growing. I have never minded feeding in public as a screaming baby has always trumped my desire for privacy however I’m not an exhibitionist so I have tried to get some tops which will give me easy access for feeding along with a bit of modesty.

Birthing Shirt review

When I was pregnant I was given a birthing shirt from The Birthing Shirt Company to review during my pregnancy, labour, birth and breastfeeding. Now Baby Girl is 6 weeks old I think I have road tested it enough and thanks to her being in bed she is giving me time to share my experience! Continue reading

Baby Girl – one month on

Baby Girl was one month old last week but already I can’t remember life without her. I thought I remembered everything there was about having a newborn baby having only done it 3 years ago with the Boy but I find myself asking questions over and over and feel like I am learning all over again. We are not sure if we are going to have any more children but just in case I thought it would be a good idea to record this first month so I can remind myself of it one day and look back at these special early days.

Things I forgot about having a newborn baby

  • Drinking a hot cup of tea is a rare luxury.
  • Going out without a bump or a baby is very ordinary, no one smiles at you.
  • Breastfeeding in winter is not always pleasant. Continue reading
