Calming Colic by Christian Bates: Book Review & Giveaway


Colic is the worst nightmare of all new parents.  At just three days old, our daughter began to suffer the tell-tale signs of colic.  Not even a week into her little life she would scream inconsolably, from early evening into the small hours of the morning.

Thankful Thursdays…#4


What a glorious week, it feels like summer has finally arrived and what a scorcher it’s been! This week we took Baby J swimming for the first time and she absolutely loved it.  Seeing as Baby J is now thirteen months old I suppose we left it a little late to take her swimming.  The reason for this is that I…
