No Excuses – Working Out With A Baby

New Year’s Resolutions – First Time Mum

First, I must apologize for my absence. I’m still adjusting to life as a new mum these days and most of my time is now spent breastfeeding, napping, and changing nappies. The small free time I have, I’m cleaning and/or running small errands which I’m guessing is pretty much the norm for new mums. My […]

Cosleeping With Our Newborn

When we started this journey, I had every intention of having my baby sleep in her own crib (the Snuzpod) next to our bed, but unfortunately she’s spending little time in her crib and more time cosleeping next to us. I was always so worried about co-sleeping due to both SIDS and the chance of […]
