Rùna Baby is based n Kildare an Irish family run business specialising in bibs. Ned is pretty much coming to the end of his bib journey now I just use them to save clothes from certain foods or activities. Unfortunately though bibs and muslins were the most needed items in the house from day one with Ned he was so windy and gripey it was endless! Yes windy and gripey are the technical terms 🙈😊
It’s as simple as falling out of bed all you have to do is guess whether I’m having a boy or a girl! You can guess twice to hench your bets if you like, it’s only a bit of fun. Nothing too serious. There are some great prizes to be won from some of my favourite brands including Elave Skincare, Nom Nom Kids, Zippy bibs and Busy B. These are all products I’ve used, enjoyed and recommend to other parents.

So really healthy! It’s weird this time you do everything on your own because someone needs to mind Ned where as last time we were like loves young dream going to every appointment hand in hand.

Mini Bella Boutique will turn a year old this June and what a year it has been. This lovely Irish owned online store is the brain child of the fabulous Niamh Byrne.

Why? Oh why,do we compare our babies? As a new mum,I’ve become so aware of the milestones and the box ticking that goes on with a new baby,especially in the first year. A lot of this is fuelled,and rightly so in the right context,by our health system. In the beginning it puts amazing pressure on you, weights, ounces, solids, hand eye coordination, clapping hands, smiling, sitting, farting…Lord you name it they’ve an “appropriate”age for it! This pressure wore off me in the later six months when Ned was well weaned, a big boy to say the least and content in my eyes. But I know many of my friends continued to feel the pressure for so many things and so many aspects of raising their little baby. Often,purely fuelled by comparison!
This recipe is exactly what it says on the tin, a good old fashioned pancake recipe. It’s not dairy free or gluten free or low fat or made with wholewheat or spelt or bananas! It’s just a simple pancake recipe like the ones we grew up with.
