It was actually more stressful for me to think about taking him to Timpson’s or one of the other many places that take passport photos for babies. What if he was crying?

    With breastfeeding I’ve found a lot of my time as a new Mum has been taken up confined to the sofa or bed and whilst I have binged ALOT of TV sometimes nothing beats a good book!
