Reflux + CMPA // Why it’s absolutely normal to grieve

H-Bear turns two in just over two weeks time, and I have to admit that I’m only just starting to mentally process the first year of his life. I feel like I lost the Baby Days with him. That I was cheated out of them. That Silent Reflux stole them from me. I put up walls and blocked out memories to try and cope. To try and grasp some light in the wilderness. To try and convince myself that it wasn’t all bad. But, when all your baby does is scream 24/7. When you’re suffering  ...

Recipe // Dairy and Soya Free Rock Cakes

I love rock cakes. They are probably my ultimate nostalgic food; they remind me so much of my childhood. We used to roller skate along to the cafe near the Peace Statue in Hove at the weekend, no matter what time of year, and stop off for a hot chocolate and rock cake.

They both suffer from CMPA like H-Bear, so I always relish the challenge to create something new and yummy for our play dates that everyone can eat. This week I decided to make gingerbread flowers because I thought it would be a lovely afternoon activity for Busby and I to do while H-Bear napped… Well, she was more than happy to eat the dough and decorate, but the rest was left up to me –  ...

Recipe // Dairy and Soya Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

H-Bear and I got our bake on last Friday for a play date in the afternoon. I foolishly thought I’d made enough Dairy and Soya Free Iced Biscuits for the play date AND the weekend… but as it transpired, they were the equivalent of toddler/preschooler crack, and I ended up calling Nick to ask him to bring another round of biscuits over (and some prosecco for the mums!), so we were left almost biscuit-less at home. Not to fear, as I’d been itching to adapt another recipe for  ...
