Tongue tie campaign update

Well the first thing to say is that the petition has over 90,000 signatures! That is more people than Wembley Stadium can hold, which is amazing, and proves how much of an issue this is. If you haven’t already, I’d urge you to look at the petition here and sign if you agree with it….

17 things you need to do to nail a wedding with a baby 

Weddings. With a tiny baby. What could be worse?! Well, yes – we’ve all seen and heard the horror stories. But it doesn’t have to be that way with some preparation and life hacks! 1. He’ll chunder, spit up, probably leak all over, and generally ruin his first outfit. Decide if you want your baby…

Does your baby have super sensitive skin? Avoid all the additives…!

Never have I ever cared about what goes into the soaps, body-washes or shaving lotions that I’ve bought and used for myself. And, until now, I’ve never had to drink to that. But suddenly, because it’s the little guy, and, like most millennial parentals, I consult google for all life and baby solutions, what goes…

22 things they don’t tell you before having a baby

There are various things you’ll already know about having a baby. Then there are the things you’ll pick up at your NCT classes or via google. And finally, your friends and parents will undoubtably throw advice and experience into the general direction of the soon-to-be-mother. But what about us Dads? Well, here a few things…

Why won’t he stop crying!?

Because he’s a bugger. Or, more accurately, because he’s either hungry, gassy, uncomfortable or over-tired.  At a month old it’s still really hard to understand which it is. And each one has its own technique: a boob in the face, lots of bouncing, simply adjusting his position, cuddling etc etc.  If by luck or design…

Daytime TV and Dion Dublin: My wife’s new life 

The role of the stay at home parent can be a very lonely one. But luckily there are daily TV show presenters to replace work friends.  And during my paternity leave I watched them, too, and my overriding observation is this: when and why did Dion Dublin become a presenter of Homes Under the Hammer?!…

Am I boiling my baby!? Bath time is an emotional rollercoaster

Baby Feline has had a fair few baths so far (still super spotty though…). And if you consult google there is a lot of chat about getting the temperature right. Which is obvious, right?  But what is the right temperature? And how do you know? Is hot for me hot for him? Aaaaaaand this is…

Does your baby shart, too? Infacol will help

Seriously. It’s almost impressive (it is totally impressive) how loud this little chap is. Want to hold my baby? He will trump on you so graphically, and so forcefully that you may drop him (please don’t). Even the midwife who was doing his heal prick test, and who must have seen thousands of bubs, jumped…

He’s four weeks old and has teenage acne…

Poor little chap. He’s a spotty little bugger. But apparently it’s his baby hormones running around, rather than the fact I’m dragging him through mud every day or that he’s super early developer… I’ve googled it and most babies pimple out a bit in the first few months. So long as you airbrush your instagram…
