My thoughts on Co-Sleeping

My thoughts on Co-Sleeping

When I first became pregnant with the twins, I was adamant from the get go that the girls would be sleeping in their cots, in our room, but never with us in the bed. I read a lot about sleep training and what experiences other moms were going through with their kids who also by the way said that there is no way their kids were going to sleep in the bed with them either.

Dealing with my fussy baby

Dealing with my fussy baby

When I had the girls I found that daily life was quite easy because they were calm and chilled out kids to begin with. Tazkia was a little fussy but always the same time during the day and always for a short period of time. I just thought it was colic but I didn’t know enough about it and before I realised it the “colic” was over. So when Yameen was born, I thought that

My maternity leave is over

My maternity leave is over

In about 4 days’ time my maternity leave will be completely over and then I return to work. Going back to the land of the working class and I’m absolutely dreading it. It’s like I have this unexplained urge to give up my job and stay home with my kids. Every time I look at my baby I just want to hold him knowing that this not going to last, I’m going to be on

YAY! The Holidays are over

YAY! The Holidays are over

Yo today is the last day of holiday and you guys won’t believe (or maybe you can) how long, exhausting and tiring this month long holiday was.

The run-down of the Holiday: – Somehow my kids are just a

Baby Development: Yameen is 3 months old

Baby Development: Yameen is 3 months old

I’m a bit late in doing this because Yameen’s is almost 4 month old again but I figured it would be awesome to check on his development later on, when he is older and I have forgotten everything that’s happened in his first year of his life. It’s been an awesome three months so far, and it also feels like 2017 went far too quickly, when I looked again he was born and now three

My Maternity UIF Submission with Mom’s Link to UIF agency

My Maternity UIF Submission with Mom's Link to UIF agency

I’ve had to claim maternity UIF benefits twice in my life and I’ve got to say it’s the most irritating process to have to go through. Any mom who’s had to claim will tell you the same. The first time I claimed I did it myself. Now this is the first thing you doing wrong. It’s a mission to get all the documentation especially if you haven’t worked at a company for longer four years.

My Breastfeeding Story

My Breastfeeding Story

I’ve never had a lot of experience in breastfeeding my kids, I feel like I was robbed of the decision to give the girls breastmilk, I will say though that I understand why the doctors decided to dry up my milk. I do feel though that formula feeding really isn’t a big deal. The girls were hardly ever sick and they picked up quite a bit of weight. After all a fed baby is a
