baby, daddy, Logan

-Blogmas day 13- Logan’s first night in his own room 😥

You did read correctly, yes, last night I made the very brave decision to put Logan in his own room, I had been thinking about it for a while but never got round to it, or I hadn’t had the baby monitors but last Friday I bought these really cheap audio baby monitors which you plug into the wall (will do a review at some point) and so I had no excuse really, It was around 4pm before Logan’s last nap of the evening I had moved his cot from my bedroom into his room, and I had put logan in his own room for that nap and he settled rather quickly in my arms and didn’t wake up when I put him in his cot which he usually does do, and he had about a half an hour nap which was expected as that is one of the shorter naps of the day.

So he had his tea, bottle, bath and some playtime and rob (the OH) went and took logan upstairs into his room, and I was so anxious and nervous at this point, I was just thinking “tonight’s going to be a long night” as I didn’t think he’d sleep for long, but to my surprise he slept really well from 9pm he started fussing at 1am I only went in, put his dummy back in without eye contact, rubbed his back and he fell straight back to sleep until 3am for a bottle/cuddles but he didn’t settle straight away so I brought him into my room for a bit and when he fell asleep I slowly carried him back to his bedroom and off he went to sleep until 8am, so to be honest we had a pretty good night’s sleep, and I am so proud as I think he’s got another tooth coming in as well as he’s dribbling really bad again.

I am just hoping that tonight will be the same or better yet not waking for 3am feed, but we shall see because he still only has about 3 7oz bottles a day which I know doesn’t sound a lot but with BLW and baby porridge it does fill him up, if someone can tell me how many bottles he should be having at 7 months old then I’d love to know.

Here’s to another good sleep tonight and many more to come.

And if you’re thinking about putting your little ones in their own room, then just give it a try I say, you can always bring them back in your room if they are not ready, and if you have already made that transition; how did it go? Do you think there sleep has gotten better/worse, let me know.

-Blogmas Day 4- Hauck Shopper Shop N Drive Travel System Review

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I thought i would take this opportunity to write a review on my much loved Hauck pram which i am having to sell as I’ve just bought Logan a new pram for Christmas, only because i wanted a parent facing pram, and i miss being able to see Logan when out and about, other than that its a brilliant first time pram.

I just wanted to say that this pram has done a fab job at being a travel system, it is really easy to attach the car seat especially when Logan was a newborn, its really effortless to fold down and fit into the boot, its also a very nice, smooth pram to move around with front swivel / lockable wheels.

My favourite thing about the Hauck pram has to be the 2 cup holders on the handle bar, as its so useful for putting my drink or logans bottle/snacks/tissues, anything you want really, its definitely a great all rounder, now Logan is in the pushchair part  he loves being able sit upright and see the world passing by.

I also really like how easy the pram is to steer and assemble, especially for getting it in and out of the boot. Another great feature especially because we don’t drive, it has a huge shopping basket beneath the pram as evidenced the picture (Slideshow above ^) .

The best thing about this pram is that the manufacturer of the Hauck series is in Wrexham, where i live so it feels great to have supported a local business, i know the brand isn’t well known and not an expensive brand like Silver Cross or Cossatto but it is an awesome pram in my eyes and you won’t be dissapointed.

So if you’re looking for a travel system that is comfortable, easy to assemble and steer around then this is the pram for you, it comes in a variety of different colours and styles so just google Hauck and you won’t be dissapointed.

“It’s a good all rounder for the first time parent” – Robert Jones (Fiance and loving daddy to Logan)

“Such a great pram, so easy to fold down and get in the boot” – Julia Jones (My lovely mother, nanny to Logan)

baby, daddy, Logan

Lets discuss – The DAD!

The main reason I wanted to talk about the daddies, partners, other half’s, (whatever you call your man in your life) is because I feel like they don’t get enough credit, especially when you see people complaining how their partners are not very good dads or they don’t do enough for them etc.

I basically just wanted to let you know that not every man is like that, the reason I know this is because Rob (My hubby to be) is in fact one of the kindest, and most caring people I know, I am so grateful to have a man like him take care of both me and our son, he’s definitely a great dad to Logan.

I know I don’t often praise him, but I really should start to tell him how great he’s being more, especially if it’s true, I know it can be hard on the new dad because they’re learning too, in fact the dads need just as much encouragement because it’s not instinctive to them like it us, new mummies.

Having a baby certainly can put a strain on the relationship especially since the man is not “getting any” and has certain “needs”, but to be fair Rob has always respected me and has been very patient and understanding especially since I’ve not had as much of a libido since Logan was born, but it’s getting there, Slowly.

I also wanted to tell you knew mummies and daddies to be, not to worry about whose going to be doing night feeds and whose going to change the poopy nappies because you will fall into a routine and you’ll just automatically work something out, obviously if the dad has paternity leave that’s even better news as he can offer more help while you mums have a much needed rest, however unfortunately I didn’t have such privilege because Rob had just got a new job so wasn’t entitled to paternity leave, so it was hard going from the get go, but you know what nearly 7 months on and I’m not bothered, I’m still alive and Logan’s as happy and healthy as he can be.

Robert Jones (my loving fiance) this paragraph is especially for you, I just wanted to say how amazing you have been over the past 6 and a half months, I know it’s been a very tiring and challenging time for us both, but I wouldn’t change it for the world, and I wouldn’t want anyone else to be the daddy to my children, as soppy as this may be I want the world to know how much I appreciate you, and how much Logan adores you and I know we’ll have a very happy, loving household because, we love each other! And that’s the most important thing!
