So, I’ve been MIA pretty much all of this year and here’s the reason why 💙 I was busy growing a tiny human and ate my body weight in crap during lockdown. Baby Mylo is now 6 weeks old and I feel ready to get back on the diet and lose this weight. I gained almost 3 stone during pregnancy and so far have managed to lose 2st 3lb. Here’s to ending 2020 on a healthy note 💪🏼 #slimmingworld #slimmimgworlduk #swuk #newmum #losingbabyweight #healthylifestyle #nomorejunkfood #slimmingworldfamily #slimmingworldjourney
Who new having a baby would change how you’ve always seen the world!! My new purpose in life is to live a life of happiness, to fill everyday with passion and purpose, to love my people and see as many places around the world as I can... As I’ve just started my own journey as a mum and now I have the opportunity to find myself a new career and to help support our families goals, I will be jumping back in YouTube and sharing our journey! It has taken a lot of back and forth but it’s something that scares me so for that reason alone I’ll do it!! Also I’ve always had a passion for capturing memories in different forms so what better way to document our family as it grows and change!! 🤍 I will also be documenting this on our family page @lifewiththehenrys #babygirl #siennamadison #girlmum #youtubechannel #familyvlog #newproject #newbie #nervousbutexcited #newventures #babygirl #newmum #australianmum #traveltheworld #familyvlogs #australianfamily #youtube

Days in the Sun ☀️ Fun Times I was asked a week ago, what I do for fun..... this one caught me by surprise because my first thought and response was I love doing activities that makes Skyla happy! Then I thought, wait a second that’s what Skyla likes to do 🤷🏼♀️ Have I lost myself in motherhood or have I simply changed and have new enjoyments in life. If I’m honest probably a little of both. I would love to hear your experience?
The most perfect white nursery! 😍 Sooooo pretty✨ #nurseryinspo pic: Pinterest

Podcast love• • • As a new mum on parental leave I have a newfound love of podcasts. I’ve always enjoyed reading but having two hands free to hold a novel is not always an option. Podcasts for me are a way to connect with the ‘outside’ world. I love walking with Esther in the carrier or stroller around our neighbourhood & listening to a good podcast. In the newborn days I think podcasts saved my sanity being out and about and giving my weary mum brain some food for thought. Here’s some of my favourites• • • Pregnancy/ Baby related 👶Australian Birth Stories- Sophie Walker @australianbirthstories A fantastic resource for expectant mothers to be. I loved listening to Sophie’s interviews with Australian mothers before giving birth to mentally prepare myself (not that you ever fully can! ) And still now after having given birth I love listening to the stories. Some episodes bring up a few happy tears and all the feels for me having gone through it all now. 👶Hello, Bump Mamamia Podcasts. Lots of fun in the lead up to birth. Significantly reduced my pre birth anxiety with the lighthearted & upbeat tone. 👶BabyTalk ABC radio @babytalkwithpenny Great topics covered for day to day life with a baby 👶Birth, Baby & Beyond with Midwife Cath. The first podcast I listened to when figuring out what I’d actually do once baby was born! 👶Year One- Mamamia Podcasts. So many relevant topics to what we go through as parents in the lead up to the first birthday 👶This Glorious Mess- Mamamia Podcasts. Always something interesting, useful, funny and very relatable & Non baby related podcasts 👂🏻Ideas At The House- Sydney Opera House. Important things discussed here 👂🏻No Filter- Mamamia podcasts. Listened to just about every single episode. Mia Freedman interviews the broadest spectrum of guests with inspiring stories & as the name suggests there’s a refreshing honesty between host & interviewee. 👂🏻I don’t know How She Does It- Mamamia podcasts. All about women doing cool things, in a nutshell 👂🏻How I Built This- with Guy Raz NPR. Interviews with entrepreneurs around the world What are some of your favourite podcasts? Let’s share!

This is my son, Leonidas, at just 14 days old. . I don't share photos of his face on social media because of facial recognition technology, and I want him to have the choice to feature online or remain anonymous. . So, why am I sharing this with you today? . I got told that I couldn't have babies, or at least that it would be near impossible. So, when I found out that I was pregnant, I was in total shock. . It wasn't until I was about 5 months pregnant that I finally metabolised the fact that I was going to be a mum. . GULP! . I have always wanted to be a mum, so my surprise pregnancy was the best gift I could have ever hoped for. And, Leon is the gift that keeps on giving. . He makes me a better person. He has taught me patience, perseverence, the importance of playtime, and loads more... But above all, he has taught me about unconditional love. . You see, we always look to the older, wiser mentors in our peer groups for inspiration... But I guess what I'm saying is that we can learn some of life's most important lessons from those who are so young they can't even speak to share their wisdom. . Keep an eye on those entering your industry - listen to their ideas, watch their enthusiasm, share in their learning experiences and learn from them yourself!
Today is World Heart Day! Whilst the aim of this global campaign is to raise awareness of Cardiovascular Disease as the world's number one killer, and to encourage people to take charge of their heart health, we at Mini First Aid want to take this opportunity to remind people of the importance of learning CPR. CPR is a life saving medical procedure which is given to someone who is in cardiac arrest. It helps to pump blood around the person's body when their heart can’t. To carry out CPR a person presses up and down on the casualty’s chest (chest compressions ) and gives them a series of rescue breaths to help save their life. By performing these compressions and rescue breaths, the person takes over the role of their heart and lungs, pumping blood and oxygen around their body. Every second counts – any delay can quickly reduce a person’s chance of survival. Would you know how to confidently deliver CPR in an emergency situation? It could be the difference between life and death. Why not book a place on a Mini First Aid Class today and learn these life-saving essential skills?

〰️ SLEEP 〰️ As a mum of 3, I am well versed in repeated night time wakings. 2 out of the 3 have not been great sleepers, and so for me, it’s been over 7 years of chronic sleep deprivation. 💤 A January 2019 study published by Oxford University Press (on behalf of the Sleep Research Society ) found that for both mums and dads, sleep still hadn’t returned to pre-pregnancy levels six years after having their first child 😮 . Chronic sleep deprivation can wreak havoc with our health, and lets face it, during this global pandemic we could all do with a little extra nurturing if we’re coming up against a barrier to receiving good nourishing sleep - one of our basic functional needs. From my own experience, continuous learning and the facilitation of many conscious rest opportunities, I have witnessed how incredibly supportive deep rest practices such as Yoga Nidra is for anyone who has sleep issues. For parents who experience night after night of broken sleep, this simple practice offers pure golden ✨ time to restore and reboot the system. Just 20 minutes alone can be SO beneficial and support all those areas that sleep deprivation affect.... - concentration - memory - learning - exhaustion - mental well-being and mood as well as boosting the immune system. 💥 My top tips to support sleep with Yoga Nidra are: 😴 Use Yoga Nidra as a bridge to sleep - listen to a practice upon going to bed to signal to the body & mind that it’s time to prepare for sleep. 😴 choose a practice that specifically supports sleep as these usually include elements within that are useful for preparing for and reducing anxiety about sleep. 😴 parents - use Yoga Nidra as a supportive sleep aid in the middle of the night to help you drift back to sleep after night time wakings. Whilst the state of Yoga Nidra is powerful, just a word to say it does not replace sleep....but for parents it can be the lifeline needed to get through the day. My live online Rest to Reset sessions are the ideal antidote for any tired parents. The first one is this Thursday evening. You can listen in your PJs in bed. No judgement - just deep healing restorative rest. Booking link in bio ✨ ✨ ✨

꧁ 𝗕𝗲𝘀𝘁 𝗻𝗲𝘄 𝗯𝗮𝗯𝘆 𝗴𝗶𝗳𝘁 𝗶𝗱𝗲𝗮𝘀 ꧂ Recently I asked about the best gifts you received as a new mum. Apart from food delivery, cleaning service, spa voucher, or actual help with errands, there were a few ideas that repeatedly popped up. So here’s the list of gifts that are always appreciated by mums: • thermal mug and the bigger the better, because coffee is the reason we survive. Later it will be replaced by wine but during the first months we need ☕️ • personalized keepsake items like a teddy or doll, or blanket, or spoon, or shoes 🤩 Preferably with baby’s name printed there. • muslin blankets or clothes, because they might get lost or dirty (I won’t say how 😅 ), and they can be used in so many different ways in emergencies, so every baby and mum needs many of them. • rubber teethers, in particular giraffe Sofie or similar. • something totally unpractical that we normally don’t want to spend money on, but what will look cute. For example, milestone cards/blanket, adorable Halloween, Christmas, or other occasion outfits, props for newborn photos, matching clothes for siblings or the whole family. What do you think about these ideas? Are they ranked in the right order? Photo credit: @harvey_lyla_and_me

Croup is a condition that affects babies' and young children's airways. It's usually mild, but call NHS 111 or see a GP if you're worried. These are the symptoms of croup: a barking cough that sounds like a seal (you can search online to hear examples ) a hoarse voice difficulty breathing a rasping sound when breathing in Your child will usually have cold-like symptoms to begin with. Croup symptoms usually come on after a few days and are often worse at night. Croup usually gets better on its own within 48 hours. Until it does: stay calm sit your child upright comfort them if they're distressed (crying can make the symptoms worse ) give them plenty of fluids Call 111 or see a GP if: you're worried your child is getting worse they're no better after 48 hours #daisyfirstaid #croup #childhoodillness #essex #brentwood #billericay #chelmsford #witham #maldon #baby #newmum #newdad #covid_19

Sitting here dreaming of the day Eliana takes a bottle while I go out for even Just an hour for wine and lunch 😍💁🏻♀️ All at the same time am so grateful to be able to exclusively breastfeed😌 When Eliana was born we had to work REEEEAAAL hard to latch her , I cried and cried and prayed for when I could just be able to give her what she needed. We had to give her expressed milk + booby untill she reached a certain weight to make sure she was getting enough and I couldn’t wait to say “I exclusively breastfeed” I felt like I wasn’t doing my job properly untill I could do that. It’s so unfortunate the things we as mothers feel judged or guilty for when we are only ever trying our best for our children. Anyway, What I’m trying to say is there’s no right way to do these things , and the “right” way for you may change as your baby grows and as life does it’s thing ... Love to all the mummas out there , you are doing an amazing job 😌🥰🤎 #motherhood #parenting #motherhoodjourney #healthylifestyle #healthandwellness #lifestyle #newmum #mumlife #womenempowerment #womensupportingwomen #mumsinbusiness
First night in his own room ✅ This one has been a nightmare sleeping at night the last couple of weeks, so I decided to move him into his own room last night. He slept so much better! 🙌🏼 Weird, it’s the same cot, the same sleepyhead the only thing different is the room? But I’m not complaining, I feel like a new woman today! 💁🏻♀️👌🏼❤️
Absolutely NOT sandals weather today, I don’t know what I was thinking... is baby brain a good enough excuse? 🤦🏻♀️❄️ Now to warm up in front of the fire and reflect on another lovely weekend 🍁
Hopefully all these Lockie aeroplanes have helped to build up some strength in my chaturanga arms because it’s been a hot minute since we’ve flowed together 😝 I can’t wait to gift YOU some time and space away from the noise. And, let’s face it... you’ll be doing the same for ME 👶🏼🙊 Let’s close the door, dim the lights, turn up the music and turn down the world. I may be a little rusty but we’ll hold space for each other and ‘air squishy cuddle’ in a pandemic-appropriate way. The world may have changed since I saw you last but my love for the community has only grown stronger. See you on the mat this week + next for a couple of covers at my favourite hideaway.

Mornings are for Teddy Bears Picnic ❤️❤️ . It’s seems to be an everyday thing at the moment, before she has her breakfast. . Question, meal times for you have the tv on. ? . Normally I don’t have the tv on when she eats, but someone suggested for me to try she might actually eat without realising. Last night I put Moana on and she actually ate !!!!! 🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️
Copper Beach holds such a special place in my heart, and I’ve been lucky enough to visit since I was a little girl.

And this time, I brought my tiny human with me 😍😭👌💕 #thelakes . . . . . . . . . . . . . #lakedistrict #lake #nature #travel #igtravel #travelgram #travelphotography #instatravel #mum #mummy #mama #newmum #newbaby #baby #mumlife #motherhood #parenthood
