How one overwhelmed mum became my greatest teacher
Yes I was excited – there would be two sets of twins! – but I also knew I needed to keep my nerves in check. After all, the parents in the room were facing the overwhelming yet beautiful experience of welcoming a new baby into their lives. As I remembered my own experience of becoming a mum, I felt that my nerves seemed almost trivial in comparison.

Because my past life (as in before children) was lived as a free wandering chef, and a drop out naturopath student for a short time (such a divide between the two professions), I have a huge belief that food is so important in your life. Both for the soul and body. Food as medicine - for your body as you fill it with the nutrients you need to grow, heal, have energy, and the right headspace.

Yes it easy to label this as male ignorance, but certainly he is not alone assuming all mum’s have endless time to be organised. Until they become parents.

What is colic really and 7 things real Mama's have found that helped their babies!
Colic is a condition that approximately 1 in 5 babies suffer with. Colic is basically described as a baby that cries for more than 3 hours a day, 3 days a week, 3 weeks in a row, whilst otherwise appearing healthy and unhurt. There seems to be no explanation why your otherwise happy bub suddenly begins to cry non stop, usually as the evening or night progresses.
Apart from hours of crying, your baby also might be very gassy, she may have a very tight, bloated tummy, a little like a drum, he might…
