Does your baby suddenly turn in to the Antichrist? Does it happen in the afternoon/evenings? With no warning? Are you left scrambling on mumsnet.com for any sort of tips to soothe your little monster and wishing that babies came with a volume control button?

Don't they look so happy and comfortable......

Sorry about the terrible pun in the title. But after James Smith called out an Australian ‘’influencer’’ on her waist trainer use postnatally I just had to write a post on this trend too.

Let’s talk about sex, baby! (Sings Salt n Pepper to myself every time I hear those 5 words).

Why am I talking about sex in Christmas week? Well, it is the week midwives actually hate. Because everyone goes out, gets merry, has a really good time and 9 months later we ar...

I know, I know..... It isn't the nicest thing to think about, I guess it is still pretty  taboo for some. 

I have read so many posts and articles that don't even use the word VAGINA. So if it makes you cringe then I am sorry, but you should get used to it. You have...

“I can’t do this"

"I want to go home"

“I don’t want to do this anymore”
