Sharing the Blog Love – Showcase 36


A big welcome to our weekly #SharingtheBlogLove Blogger Showcase!

If you’re new to #SharingtheBlogLove, these are mine and Laura’s favourite posts from last week’s linky. As part of the linky we’d like you to choose one post from each showcase post to head over and leave a comment to show them some extra blog love. It’s always lovely to take a look at our featured posts this week and see how many extra comments they’ve had from you guys!


Topsy Turvy Tribe

Before Max was born, my husband and I loved to get outdoors and go for a walk. And even when we had Max, we continued this for quite a while, until he started walking and suddenly refused to go in his carrier anymore. He’s now just approaching 3, and we’re just getting to the stage where we can go for a walk and take him along – obviously bearing in mind his little legs. I found this list of Tips for Walking and Hiking with Children really helpful – a lot of it’s common sense, but there were lots of things on there that I’d not considered. And I find Andrea and her family so inspiring – if they can get out there with two children in tow, I feel I can definitely give it a go!


Mummy Miller

The words ‘solo parenting’ strike fear into my heart. Hats off to all the single parents out there, I am in total awe of you! I had half a week recently where I had to do it alone as my husband was on a business trip and it was just a case of getting through it – but get through it I did! I loved Louise’s post, Tips for Solo Parenting, which gives you just a few hints for making it through without losing your mind!


Carolina Twin Mom

I have to admit that reading Mary’s post on What to do when your child makes Rude Comments, I was almost glad that Max’s speech is a bit on the slow side to develop! I dread that moment that I know is inevitable, when he’ll make a comment about someone that’s so blunt I just want the ground to swallow me up. I’ve never been great at thinking on my feet, so these tips on how best to handle it are useful food for thought before it happens.


Talking Mums

Have you heard of the charity Kicks Count? I’ve been using their app this pregnancy to track patterns of movement and I love it. I’ve been surprised by how much misinformation there is out there about your baby’s movement in pregnancy, and also about the lack of forthcoming information from medical professionals. I’ve been given very little information about movement from midwives or consultants and so Kicks Count has been a great source of information for me. I thought this post, Shouting out the Message About Fetal Movements,  from Talking Mums, was so well expressed and really hits home how important it is to monitor movement and to be aware of any changes.


Did you catch any of these last time? If not, please head over and give them a read and a comment!

    The rude comment post was hysterical. We get a lot of questions, although thankfully now, they aren’t as loud and obvious.

    This is a great selection – the message about the importance of keeping an eye on your baby’s movements is such a key one. There is so much misinformation out there. Glad you’re finding the app useful. Thanks for hosting #sharingthebloglove

    I just read the post about fetal movements and found it very eye opening. I never really tracked my Peachy’s movements all that much when I was pregnant but now I see how important it is to do so. Luckily everything worked out for us. Others are not so lucky. #SharingtheBlogLove
