Firstly, apologies for the silence on the blog. I’ve been sharpening my tools – doing a few courses and will be writing some exams soon.
It’s also that time of the year where I can feel the burn. My body is tired and run-down which makes me more susceptible to all the germs floating around in the air. I’ve been ill with a cold or flu 4 times this year, which is an all time record. I just hope that as the warmer weather approaches, I won’t be a victim anymore.
I promise to share some more great content with you this month. In the meantime, I hope that you’ve been enjoying the giveaways! There is still a little time to enter the Huggies Hamper Giveaway as well as the Breastfeeding Awareness week Similac Mom Giveaway, so go ahead and enter.
From 1st to the 7th August 2017 marks World Breastfeeding Awareness Week. This week is highlighted to emphasize the value and importance of breastfeeding for mothers as well as baby.
If there’s one thing that I miss about having an infant in our home, it’s definitely that strong bond and special time with my babies that came along with breastfeeding. It wasn’t so easy to begin with – it was tiring and painful initially, but with the right technique and persevering through, it ended up being the most special times of my life.
Many Pregnant women have concerns on whether they will succeed in breastfeeding or if they will produce enough milk. For first-time Moms breastfeeding can be a harrowing experience, but it is a learned skill, help is at hand from your doctor, midwife, nurse or healthcare professionals.
Kurt and I had a date night this week (yes, miracles do happen). We went to see Chris Forrest’s side-splitting one-man show, Who’s Your Daddy at the Kalk Bay Theatre.
Chris may be one of South Africa’s most sought-after comedians but his greatest achievements is his family and his journey to fatherhood has brought to life in this hilariously honest show!
I could so relate to the show but I think that Kurt felt as if he and Chris were singing from the same hymn sheet. Chris sheds some light on his experiences of becoming a father. His number one golden rule is “Don’t argue with a pregnant woman!” – and that’s coming from experience! From pregnancy to birth, sleepless nights, dirty diapers and everything in between, Chris shares valuable tips about what really happens and how to deal with it.
This Winter holidays, Alyssa and Aidan got a huge surprise from Just Fun Kidz – an assortment of the cutest little Chubby Puppies and friends. If you’ve been following me on Instagram and been watching some of my stories, you would see the little puppies have been a hit and have been keeping the kids entertained throughout the holidays. In fact, they even joined us on a road trip this weekend.
