Starting out with Cloth Nappies

The cute fluffy prints have taken over my Instgram feed for the past few months and they got me thinking.. Why didn’t I initially choose cloth nappies? Which is when I was swiftly reminded that I have binned every item of clothing that Aidan has pooped on. Even the tiniest little stinky spot and it was banished to the bin.…

To Mommies | Aidan

Ellen / November 14, 2014

Dear Mommies, I know that sometimes us babies can be very tough work. Sometimes, when we wake at 4am it’s just because we were lonely and just needed to see you, and maybe get a little cuddle too. We didn’t realise that you don’t get a daytime nap like us. Sorry. When we cry for no reason it’s because we…

Aidan’s free toys

Ellen / November 10, 2014

After just posting my October favourites (two weeks late) I realised that there is one thing that Aidan plays with more than any other toys he owns.

5 month update | Aidan

Ellen / October 30, 2014

Size-wise:  I haven’t had Aidan weighed this month but I would estimate about 10-11 kg (1.7 stone). He is now in 6-9 month clothes 🙁 Sleep: The beginning of the month we experienced a little bit of the dreaded ‘4 month sleep regression’ but we have moved past that stage and you sleep from 7:30/8pm until 8/9 in the morning. Also, you…
