Tooth decay is one of the most common chronic infectious disease of childhood and I wished I had started taking care of them earlier. Madeleine got her first tooth at 7 months of age. I didn’t really pay much attention to cleaning it properly as I thought to myself “it’s only 1 tooth, how bad can it be?” Now that she’s almost 13 months with 7 teeth, I am cleaning them regularly twice a day. I started routinely doing this when she was about 11 months of age. Continue reading “How To Prevent Tooth Decay In Your Baby”
What does it feel like to be a working mum? Before I became a mum, work took up a large part of my life. I love my job and I love going to work. I was ambitious and very career driven. I knew exactly where I wanted to be within 5 years. I landed my dream job at a hospital that I’ve always wanted to work for. I was proud that I was doing well.
Since changing Madeleine over to cow’s milk and back to formula (she wasn’t tolerating it very well) her sleeping has been all over the place.

I follow a few mothers on social media: Aaryn Williams, Emily Norris, The Modern Mumma and Sophie Cachia to name some. It always amazes me how much mom-shaming these women cop from other mothers. The comments that they post are absolutely disgusting to say the least. I don’t know why people feel the need to do it. Why can’t we just be happy for other people? If it bothers them so much, just don’t watch or read the blog! The people behind the nasty criticism are totally unaware of what this type of scrutiny and condescension does to the other person on the receiving end. Most importantly, how are we going to teach our kids about bullying if we do not lead by example? Continue reading “Mom-Shaming”
