Online Baby Sleep & Routine Course

Heidi Skudder Baby Sleep, Parenting

If you follow me on social media, then you may have seen that on March 1st I launched a super duper new product and I took a very exciting step in my business by producing the Online Baby Sleep & Routine Course. I wanted to take the time to write about this process and record why I have set it …

Becoming a Mummy – Second Time Over!

Heidi Skudder Parenting, Pregnancy

For those of you who already have a second or even third baby, you will appreciate that this blog is being squeezed in amongst a never-ending to-do list, whilst having a toddler demanding every minute of your attention! Much like the second baby that is growing in my tummy, the attention still focuses much on the 1st child – rather than …

Fall Back; How to Prepare your Little Person for the Winter Clock Change

Heidi Skudder Baby Sleep

Winter is fast approaching (although it is still up to 18 degrees in the day this week which seems a little mad for this time of year!), and this means not only Halloween, Fireworks and Christmas, but also the clock change! Uhoh! Something that many of my lovely clients worry about, particularly when they have spent so long getting their …

Saving the Environment – One nappy at a time!

Heidi Skudder Parenting

Review of the Kit and Kin nappy brand I started 2018 a lot more mindful of our family impact on the environment, having had a baby very recently. Not only that, but Veganuary was kicking off, and social media was awash with pictures of sea life dying from plastic consumption from a recent Blue Planet episode. It is hard not …

Patiently Pumping – Our Pumping Journey!

Heidi Skudder Breastfeeding, Parenting

I was very keen on pumping alongside breastfeeding from the very word go as I wanted my husband to be involved with bedtimes, therefore pumping enough during the day time to give him a bottle in the evenings. When Rupert was born, I soon realised that pumping would be a much bigger part of my day for a long while …

Our Breastfeeding Journey

Heidi Skudder Breastfeeding, Parenting

And so this is where it ends… I don’t think the end of a breastfeeding journey is ever easy for any mother. Whether it is at day five because your baby just wont latch, week 12 because you are not producing enough milk, or month 9 when you return to work. There is that very strong, natural sadness about coming …

To Dreamfeed or not to Dreamfeed?

Heidi Skudder Baby Sleep, Breastfeeding, Parenting

To “dreamfeed”- a word that is alien to most until they enter the world of parenting when it then becomes either a life saving sleep tip, or a matter of much confusion. The phrase dreamfeed means basically to pick up your baby from a sleep state, and to offer them a feed (be it breast of bottle) therefore tanking them …

The Fourth Trimester – Highs and Lows

Heidi Skudder Parenting, Pregnancy

Fourteen weeks old and counting. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t wish that time would stand still, and I could cuddle my newborn baby boy forever. We no longer fit into that “take it easy, you have a newborn” category and life is mostly back to normal… I’m both excited but with a tinge of sadness …
