Mim Loves Blogs – Mum in a Nutshell
Welcome back to my blog and I hope you’re all having a lovely week! I’m 35 weeks pregnant now and my waddling has made me slow down physically quite a bit but that has meant more time resting and reading so I’ve had a lot of inspiration for this week’s Mim Loves Blogs recommendation.
I don’t know whether it’s nesting but I’ve been trying to get myself organised too – after having my last baby 3 weeks early, I want to try and be as prepared as possible for this one so I have finally written my hospital bag essentials – now I just need to get them all together and pack them of course…!
Miss M has just turned 2 and I’ve been looking back at baby pics of her and thinking about how she was as a newborn. Which, of course, was adorable! Despite the inevitable sleepless nights, I’m really looking forward to having a tiny baby in the house again.
I breastfed Miss M for 7 months (and a day!) and it was a wonderful experience although also extremely challenging in the initial few months while I learned how to do it and struggled with a very low supply. I will write about this at some point. After the struggling part was over, I can honestly say it was one of the most wonderful experiences I ever got to go through and I loved breastfeeding. I really hope to be able to again with this new baby.
So this week a particular post really had me hooked at it was by the lovely Ali over at MuminaNutshell.com.
Ali’s post was so genuine and made me feel completely normal for being worried about how breastfeeding will go even though I’ve already done it once before. I found that so reassuring. She talks about how she feels now she has made the decision to stop breastfeeding soon and I remember feeling the exact same emotions.
One major pro I have found from blogging has been reading about how other parents deal with going through the same scenarios as me, picking up tips, empathising and understanding other’s choices. I loved Ali’s post and found it so reassuring so I definitely recommend you check it out.
Go and follow Ali now – her blog is so varied and I think you’ll love it too!
