Sharing the Blog Love – Showcase 9


Welcome to the 9th week of #SharingtheBlogLove and our weekly blogger showcase! It’s so lovely to see so many people coming back week after week, and I love that we are building a little circle of linkers who are lovely and generous with their commenting. It’s so great to see that the people who comment lots within the linky really see that love coming back to them judging by the number of #SharingtheBlogLove hashtags I’m seeing on our linked posts.

I love that each week we get a mix of regular linkers and some new ones too, so hopefully we really are introducing you to some great new blogs to read, which was the whole idea of this linky! On that note, on with our featured posts for this week!


Topsy Turvy Tribe

For some reason, tongue tie appears to be one of those mysterious things that your baby is checked for at birth, but that can be so easily missed. I remember midwives, consultants and health visitors all checking Max, and many of them asking for second opinions while they debated. It’s one of those things that everyone seems to be aware of, but apart from a few specialists, no-one seems fully confident in diagnosing. But it can cause huge problems for breastfeeding, and, in most cases, can be resolved quickly with a simple procedure. Andrea’s post, Birthing, Breastfeeding and Tongue Ties, talks about her experiences with tongue tie and is a fascinating read. I’m full of admiration for Andrea and how she trusted her instinct that something was wrong and pushed to see a specialist. As someone who struggled with breastfeeding initially, I am also in awe of how she pushed through the pain of breastfeeding not one, but two tongue tied babies.


A Cup Full of Glitter

A Cup Full of Glitter has been on my reading list for a long time now. Carly’s posts are always beautiful and her Back to School selection from Dot Com Gift Shop is no exception! A new school year is nearly upon us and I’m sure lots of you will be stocking up on new school things for your kids. I loved this little range of cute and stylish snackboxes for the kids, water bottles, fabulous stationery, and the most adorable little deer flask! I’m sure any kids (or teachers!) who bring these in will be the coolest kids in school!


Simply Marina

I think as a nation, the British can be slightly reserved about singing the praises of our homeland, despite being deeply patriotic. I love reading Marina’s post, My Expat Life in the UK. Marina shares her thoughts on returning to the UK after visiting her family in her homeland of Bulagria; on what that special quality is that makes a place your home. I loved how she described the conflicting feelings;  “the oscillation between two countries, between nostalgia and the inexplicable joy of being part of another society.”


The Frenchie Mummy

I feel like I’ve been reading The Frenchie Mummy for years now, but it’s really only a few months! And that’s a sure sign that Cécile’s writing is superb. It’s fast become one of my favourite blogs to catch up with when I’m in need of a smile putting on my face. I loved Help! I am Dying! A tale of a traumatic discovery that I’m sure we can all relate to – why don’t you head on over and see if you can offer any wise advice on how to deal with this terrible event…


Did you catch any of these last week? If not, please head over and show them some love!

    The tongue tie one is so helpful for people. Ours didn’t get picked up until N was 2.5 years old. It’s really something that should be automatically checked and sorted out straight after birth. #sharingthebloglove

    The tongue tie post has some great information in it. My oldest had tongue tie and it was pretty traumatic in relation to breastfeeding and being a first time mum!
