Babies vrs The Common Cold.

When they are so little, there is so very little we can do to alleviate the symptoms of illness for them. We have calpol and baby ibuprofen, but that really only helps pain and fevers, when your little one is so choked with the cold they can barely breathe let alone feed or sleep, what do you do to make them more comfortable? The only things I can think of that have been of limited effectiveness is bath/shower room or Snufflebabe rubbed on the inside of the vest/t-shirt/gro…

Does anyone have any suggestions for a 6 month old?


Still fighting…

Yip, you guessed it, I’m still sick, worst thing is how it’s now affecting Lizzie. She doesn’t sleep well and feeding is a struggle, it’s all a bit poop! It’s been a crazy wet, wild and mixed weekend, but we did have some sun on and off today, which was pleasant and prompted me to get out and do that Photoshoot of Lizzie I’ve been dying to do! It was lovely. We took some props, popped on a lovely, warm, girly outfit and headed off to the local, quiet, park where we’d be pretty much undisturbed🙂

Cold Virus of Evil

It started with a tickle, then it metastasised and now it’s a demon cold from hell. One that has now taken my poor daughter too😦 We are a sorry state of a family right now. James started coughing…it’s all down hill from there. I’m feeling very sorry for myself, mostly because I feel so poorly all my activities and fun stuff I had lined up have been discarded into a snotty and dusty heap. I’m in the middle of making wind chimes for Lizzie’s room, I have a couple of my own art canvas projects to start and finish for LIzzie’s room now the glue gun has arrived and a bunch of crafts for halloween to be getting on with and updating you all with but can I find the energy? No😦 I’m considering intravenous caffeine…PURE CAFFEINE.

Exploring a ball pit.


This cold is really starting to take hold now and Lizzie is going through a period of extreme sleep regression. She wakes up between 12-2am and wide awake and wanting to play, takes a good hour to get her back to sleep. James and I are beat and I’m struggling with this virus – not cool. Anyhoo, it’s been quiet and slow here as I really have no energy to do much of anything short of getting through the day, but I still try to keep Lizzie entertained as much as I can. The other day we did Jelly, then there was goopy yoghurt and rice and today we stayed away from mess and I bust out the Little Tikes Sand Pit we won and filled it with her ball pool balls and made a ball pit!
