Philips Avent’s New Natural Range – Review

Philips Avent’s New Natural Range – Review

As mentioned in our previous post "It's an Avent Event" We were lucky to get a first glance at their new Philips Avent Natural Range. We were really surprised to discover that it had been 25 years since they had redesigned their bottles. We were both familiar with the Avent range due to C having a younger sibling she used to help feed with the classic range and myself having a niece who used Avent bottles. The new Natural range claims to help bottle feeding more natural and suitable for parents who are…Read more

Why We Blog

Why We Blog

I'd love to be able to say that when we discovered we were pregnant, I turned to C and said, "Let's blog our experiences and change the way the world views same sex parents" But that really isn't how it happened. That's not only Why We blog. I've had several blogs before. They were always half ass attempts for me to keep track of things I was up to. My most recent success was my Things Before I'm 30 Blog. I say success, my idea of success was updating it once a month…Read more
Practical Parenting & Me

Practical Parenting & Me

At the beginning of my pregnancy I discovered the joy of pregnancy magazines & I have been hooked ever since. At first they weren't really any help to me as they only concentrated on women who were 12weeks+ & I think this is an area that needs to change. Women need more support in those first 3 months, what with the morning sickness, the worry & all the countless symptoms that crop up, I think it would help greatly to read articles from other women who are going through the same thing. However,…Read more

Heartbeats and Hospitals

One thing I've learned about our lil monkey is how much of an attention seeker it is. As mentioned in our previous post Bed rest & Boobs, we've had a few scares during this pregnancy. For the last couple of weeks everything seemed to be going swimmingly. Monkey was proving to be very active and was contorting Clara's stomach into all manner of shapes. We often have tummy time at night, where I play the lil monkey one of my favourite tunes and it bounces away perfecting all the latest moves kids are…Read more

Mood Swings in Pregnancy

As I near the end of my Pregnancy, it's fair to say I've experienced my fair share of mood swing roller-coasters. For me the mood swings came into force in the second trimester. I could wake up feeling incredibly elated and go to bed not wanting to speak to anyone. At times I found the extremes of the mood swings to be very frustrating as I could see no obvious triggers. It took me a while to realise they just occurred as and when they pleased. I'm sure Kirsty rapidly realised this as…Read more
Does it come with a manual?

Does it come with a manual?

Since AI day or as I like to call it "All in" day, our book shelves have slowly started to rival the parenting section in our local library. To begin with we started with light hearted books that didn't scare you too much. They talked about every symptom as though it was similar to being in a sitcom. We expected to have lots of lovely anecdotes to talk about after the 1st trimester. I hate to break it to those of you still in the lovely floaty stages of the 1st trimester. These…Read more

Master Builder

Master Builder

These past few weeks have involved me holding a screw driver and hammer for large amounts of time.When I previously thought the nesting bug had bitten I was wrong. The nesting bug had just entered the room and was making that annoying sound mosquitoes make at 3am when ever you give up searching for it and turn the light back off. I can safely say it's well and truly sunk it's teeth in and even managed to take a little bit of my sanity. I absolutely love my role of Master Builder in…Read more
It’s Been Emotional

It’s Been Emotional

Before you get pregnant you hear hundreds of stories about how women's hormones are all over the place & how some have just burst into tears right in the middle if the supermarket because they don't have the right brand of baked beans.I've always found these stories quite comical & brushed it off as an over exaggeration, boy oh boy how wrong I was to do that! Over the last 31 weeks I have been trying to hold in my emotions as best as I could, I'm sure my wife has felt the…Read more
