I can’t say enough how much I’ve loved babywearing second time around. I started off with a stretchy wrap and have now amassed more carriers than I know what to do with, which I use for different situations. I loved reading Kimberley’s review of the Joy and Joe Stretchy Wrap and her experience of babywearing. It’s lovely to see the photos of the closeness that you get from babywearing, and all those squishy newborn photos make me realise that my little newborn is definitely not a newborn anymore! Sob!
I think flexible working is something that is so important for everyone, and especially once you become a parent. Suddenly your life has conflicting priorities, and it’s natural that you want to achieve some level of balance between them all. But it can be really intimidating to make that request – knowing what to say, how to phrase it, and how best to present it to get the outcome you want. I thought Helen’s post, 4 Tips for Flexible Working, was such a useful post, and whether you’re coming up to the end of a maternity / paternity leave, or you simply would like to request more flexibility from your employer, this is a great read.
Are you planning to take your children to Disneyland? Disney is right up there on my list, we’re just waiting until the children are a better age to appreciate the magic of it all. I thought this was a really eye opening post from Michelle: Things To Know Before You Book Your Disneyland Paris Holiday. As well as advice on timings and hotels, there was so much there that I’d not considered before – I had no idea that quite large sections of the park could potentially be closed, so it’s well worth a read if you’re considering a visit.
