H-Bear // National Baby Swimming Week with Water Babies

H-Bear started swimming lessons with Water Babies at the end of September. It’s been something that I’ve been eager for him to begin for months now, but just haven’t had the time to sit down and find out where our local lessons are. Then the lovely folk at Water Babies got in touch and asked us whether we’d be interested in trying out a semester of lessons at one of the two pools local to us. We opted for the lessons at Winifred Holtby School in Hull, as they run on  ...

H-Bear // 16 months

Only two months to go until this munchkin is a year and a half! Wow! This month has seen H-Bear’s language skills developing. He still doesn’t have many words, but his intonations are building and he garbles away in full sentences… in his own language! He’s currently suffering from his first proper cold and therefore hasn’t slept particularly well for the past few nights. It’s a shame really, as I feel like we’d cracked the sleeping issue with  ...

H-Bear // 15 months

Another month has passed – this time not as quickly as the last two, as we have returned to Yorkshire, and ours days aren’t quite as full as they are in Sussex… That’s not to say we’re not having fun – it’s just a different pace up here!

H-Bear // 14 months

Another month has passed extremely quickly, and we are once again staying in Sussex for another few weeks. H-Bear has had quite the month! We’ve started the Milk Ladder, sadly with a failed first attempt, but he’s enjoyed being able to eat biscuits out of regular packaging for brief moments. I’d forgotten how difficult this stage can be… The protests when returning to the pushchair or sling because they want to walk everywhere, despite the fact that their little legs  ...

H-Bear // The Milk Ladder, Attempt #1

We’ve been debating starting H-Bear on the Milk Ladder since he turned one in June. He has a Cow’s Milk Protein Allergy (CMPA) as well as having a soya allergy, so for a family of utter cheese heads this is a whole new world for us! He was first diagnosed by the sleep consultants we were working with during the Bubbaroo sleep campaign when he was a newborn. Initially I felt quite angered by their suspected diagnosis (this Mama loves her cheese), and vehemently denied that I  ...
