To start with, babies only need a small amount of solid food. To begin with, I introduced Thomas to a new flavour, every other day. He took to food really well and was soon ready to move onto two meals a day. I then gradually began introducing a variety of different food groups and combinations of flavours.
Lets face it, you need to take a lot when travelling with a baby! It can be quite a daunting experience. To make the packing process easier, I decided to write a list and break it down into sections such as feeding, sleeping, clothing etc. Writing a list this way, made the packing process much easier and we didn’t forget anything!
I you would like to find out what we took with us and why, keep on reading. You can also see a copy of my list at the end of the blog.
‘Tans fade, but memories last a lifetime’
As a new Mum, you don’t often have time for self care. Before little man was born, I used to love doing my nails and having a good pamper session. Now I find whenever I have any time to myself… which is very rare…I fill it with chores or taking the opportunity to sleep!
We’re about to go on our first holiday with Thomas and I decided to use this opportunity, as an excuse, to have some well needed me time. I mean after all, getting holiday ready is part of the excitement!
“Fed is best”
I had no intention of breast feeding while pregnant. I’m not really sure why, it just wasn’t for me. I have heard many times the quote above, ‘fed is best’, yet I still found the need to justify my decision not to breast feed my baby. So many people asked, how will you be feeding baby? Surly if my baby is fed it shouldn’t matter.
