I dont know what is it about these videos of men attached to labour pain simulators and watching them scream and pant in pain that is SO funny. It is probably because, as these two lads say in the video, they think women exaggerate when we talk about our birth stories and after suffering simulated labour pains, they realize we are definitely not exaggerating.
Awww this is so cute. It is amazing how little babies can dive and swim confidently.
I was just yesterday at the swimming pool with my 5 year old and I could see how he is a bit afraid of the water. He still doesn’t know how to swim. He has not done any swimming classes yet, but he loves the water. He swims with arm bands and looking at these babies swimming fearlessly, I wished I had brought him to one of those baby swimming classes when he was little.
Does your baby/toddler know how to swim?
There are several baby swimming classes happening around the country. Check our website for information.
There is a little bit of controversy following the reported amount that Kate Middleton has spent on a new baby stroller for her soon to be firstborn.

Star Wars is coming to Hamleys Dundrum this May bank holiday weekend!
You know those. The ones that are spacious and informal, so if your baby or toddler has a tantrum or if you need to breastfeed you wont find someone staring at you or giving you a disaproving look. In these places you find groups of mums that get together to enjoy a cup of coffee and a chat.
Im trying to think about something scary or creepy my son has said, but I cant think of anything.
Instead, I can tell you a story I hear at least once a year where my daughter in law, when she was three or four, told her mum, close to her face and very serious: ” Do you remember when I was the mother and you were the daughter?” This always sends shivers down everyone’s spine.
Energy drinks have been on the news during the last year or so, being blamed as one of the causes of the obesity problem in this country. The problem is not only energy drinks, but whole eating habits of families.
I have never had an energy drink and neither my son. Why? Because we dont need them. We are not high performing athletes who need to recharge vitamins, minerals and what-not. Energy drinks are full of sugar. A sugar that we are not going to burn for energy, because the most exercise we do is to walk from/to shool and play on the backgarden, for example.
This mother’s take on parenting advice is hilarious and I can completely identify with it. There is so much advice out there and a lot of it is contradictory. At the end of the day, mothers should just follow their instinct and get advice from close family/friends, but even then, end up doing what feels best for you and your family. Everyone is different, every baby is unique.
I went on amazon and bought all the top books on baby sleep and development. I read through them all, as well as several blogs and sleep websites. I gathered lots of advice.
