JUST A MAM?

JUST A MAM?

 I was messaging someone recently and they described themselves as ‘just a mam’. It really struck a chord with me, because for the past six months I have been longing to be ‘just a mam’. Today is the Simply Small Co’s last week of trading as a bricks and mortar business, I’m going back to running my business from home and I’ve been reflecting a lot on this ‘just a mam’ badge.

BUMP CLUB BLOG: WHY GO ORGANIC WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR BABY?

Organic food, skincare and clothing were for many years, written off as a ‘fad’. I must admit, I was an 'organic sceptic' until I had my children.

HOW DO YOU ATTEND A WEDDING WITH A NEWBORN?

As we hear the news that Prince William will be on best man duties at Harry and Meghan's wedding and we wait with baited breath to hear what the newborn Prince will be named, I'm FAR more concerned with the question: "How the heck is the Duchess of Cambridge going to tackle going to the wedding of the year when she is only three weeks postpartum?”   As Catherine stood on the steps of the Lindo Wing looking radiant, cradling her gorgeous newborn wearing heels (!!!) and without so much as a limp or an eye bag in sight, it...
