Our Bodies Know How To Test Us!

*Collaborative Post

Sometimes our bodies are kind to us, sometimes they just know how to test us. For example ladies, all of those times where you have a date on the weekend, or you have the perfect girls night out planned, and boom!! Your skin breaks out in spots like never before. As minor as this may be, it definitely does leave us cursing our bodies. But as we say, that’s just a minor event compared to the trouble our bodies really can put us through from time to time. Which is why we think that it’s important you know how your body can test you, and how you can withstand such tests. Now is the time of year where you definitely don’t want your body to test you as well. As much as possible, you should try and ensure that you’re in full health all of the time! Here are some of the tops ways we think our bodies test us, and how you can deal with it asap so that you don’t feel like your life is over! Continue reading “Our Bodies Know How To Test Us!”

Giveaway!! Raising Colic Awareness with Infacol and The White Company

*Collaborative Post
Infant Colic, well what can I say? After months of our baby struggling with pain, not being able to sleep and with us trying every trick in the book it is safe to say that I have blocked as much as I can from my memory already. I think one of the most frustrating parts of Colic is the fact that there isn’t one simple answer to curing it. The doctors look at you and say ‘yeah it’s Colic’ like it is the most ordinary thing in the world and make you feel as though you are wasting their time but the thing is, Colic isn’t just one symptom it is many categorised under one name.

7 Reasons Why Colic Sucks!

My second child has colic, something that we never really had to deal with the first time and I can honestly say that it sucks! I never fully understood the ‘my baby doesn’t sleep’ thing.

It’s suddenly like being a first-time Mum all over again, new things to learn and new conditions to pull my hair out over!  Continue reading “7 Reasons Why Colic Sucks!”
