Last year went passed like a fast train without stops. We had a lot going on but no plans, goals or outcomes. I didn’t do half the things I wanted to do as I felt like I lost myself.
Everyone talks about preparing for the baby, preparing the house and preparing the family for the baby. A mother is told how to prepare her body for labour but no one plans and prepares the body for breastfeeding.
The first week well where do I start. We had a very tiring week, had to take day by day hour by hour. the perseverance of breastfeeding was taking its toll and she wasn’t losing weight but we were not seeing a significant gain either.
I was given complementary tickets to visit the ‘Baby to Toddler event’, which was set up by the same people behind the well known ‘Baby Show’ which is held every year in and around the major cities like London, Manchester and Birmingham.
