5 Stages Of Eating….or you know The Hunger Games!

  •  Breastfeed Eating; This is the first change to meal times. It’s unlikely before now you’ve tucked into a toasted sandwich with a baby attached to your nipple before. It’s a whole new dining experience! Al Fresco some might say! You quickly get over crumbs falling on your precious little bundle of perfection.
  • Nap Time Eating; Eating breakfast for lunch and lunch for elevenses. It’s all a bit of a jumble but your eating because you can, Eating because it’s quite, Eating because your hands are free!

Enjoy Dee xx

I take a pretty realistic and practical approach to parenting. Although it is is now a total taboo to even say, I believe sometimes you just need a little convenience food in your life. I know, Stop the presses…..Bad mother alert 😄!

Let’s have another?
