    Baby Clothes Haul H&M Kids – June 2018

    I bit the bullet, jumped on the bandwagon and a bunch of other metaphors and made a Youtube video! I did a baby clothes haul because Theo is a little whopper and has outgrown all his stuff and I really love the H&M kids collection at the minute. I tend to shy away from traditional, cutesy, pale blue baby clothes and prefer monochromes and geometric prints and H&M is really good for that. I can’t believe how quickly he is growing, he’s already in 6-9 month vests and sleepsuits and he’s only a few days shy of 3 months! I don’t think I’ll be able to carry him around in…

    My Breastfeeding Capsule Wardrobe

    Something I hadn’t even considered before having the baby was that postpartum I wouldn’t be the same size as I was pre-pregnancy and that I’d need easy, frequent access to my boobs! Breastfeeding is pretty intense anyway without one handedly struggling with your clothes to allow a small human access to your nipple without making you both super uncomfortable and getting completely soaked! In the last few weeks I’ve had a pretty constant stream of parcels coming (and often going back) as I’ve tried to get the hang of what to wear for convenience whilst also not feeling like a frumpy mess and I think I’ve finally cracked it so…
