Dairy Free Breastfeeding

At 6 weeks old, my son was diagnosed with a possible dairy intolerance. As I am breastfeeding him, that meant a dairy free diet for me. Not having dairy is a lot harder than I ever imagined it could be. I hadn’t realised that milk or milk products is in a lot more food than you’d expect it to be.

30 Day eBay Challenge

August has been a month of clearing out the house and lots of decluttering. I’ve thrown out lots of bits and bobs and taken a couple of bags to the charity shop. I’m still left with lots of clothes, mainly maternity and baby bits. I have decided to set myself a challenge for September and get them all listed (and hopefully sold) on eBay.

14 Days of Dinner Ideas

If you’re anything like me, by the time dinner time comes around, you really don’t feel like cooking! Running around after a toddler all day and taking care of a newborn baby, cooking a healthy meal is the last thing you feel like doing. I decided it’s time to get organised and start batch cooking. We can still eat healthy meals but I just need to reheat them from the freezer rather than cook from scratch every night. Cook once, eat lots of times!

How to Build an Emergency Fund

What is an emergency fund? Good question… essentially, an emergency fund is savings that will help cover you in case of a real emergency. This could be losing your job, sudden house repair or an unexpected car repair. Anything that you will need money upfront for. An emergency fund is ideal to fall back on without having to panic too much or put yourself in to debt.

Meal Ideas for a 1 year old

I started weaning my daughter at 5-6 months old. She would have weetabix for breakfast which she absolutely loved and still does now at 2 years old! At lunch times, I normally gave her finger foods, I wanted to give her more of a variation so I put together a few lunch ideas so she had a mixture of lunches rather than the same each day. Dinner times she usually had a jar of baby food, which was good whilst she was getting used to new textures but now she is eating really well I wanted to start giving her proper food for dinner too. I struggled to think of tasty ideas to start off with I but eventually came up with her own little menu and thought I would share to help any other parents out there trying to think of different meal ideas.
