Back on the boob 😂🙌
If you read my post the other day about Tio’s nursing strike, you’ll be happy to know that it was only temporary (about 36 hours) and he’s back to nursing well again.
Breastfeeding isn’t always easy (and for some not possible at all) but it’s something I want to continue for the next few months at least.
Apart from nursing strikes, one thing that can make breastfeeding hard is sore, cracked nipples. The pain when a baby latches onto to those is pretty much agony 😫 Luckily though we now have a stock of @nursicareaustralia therapeutic breast pads. These pads attach over your nipples and get to work straight away, healing them quickly so you can go back to enjoying those special nursing moments pain free.
If you’re breastfeeding or planning to I suggest you grab yourself some! You can use discount code DREAMS20 for a 20% discount too!

Oh those tiny, curled up toes 😍
This morning the older kids got their baby health record books out to compare their growth to Tio and each other (which was quite interesting). Tio so far is proving to be a bit longer than the other two were but not quite as chubby lol so will be interesting to see if that continues. Mason definitely wins for head circumference though. He was off the charts 😂 Oh and we used the formula that you double their height at two to determine that Mason will be 6 feet tall exactly and Zy will be 5’9. If these are true they will both be towering above me 😂

Don’t worry mate, it’s almost the weekend 😀
.
Unfortunately I don’t think it’s going to be warm enough for swimming or going under the sprinkler, which is all he seems to want to do these days. Bring on Summer buddy!

PS. How handsome does he look in his collared shirt by @two_peacocks 🙌 It has the coolest ant print on it! Perfect for dressing up or down!

Spring 🌸
My favourite season if it wasn’t for the hay fever! 🤧I’ve had to change what tablets I usually take due to breastfeeding too.
If anyone is looking for me I’ll be the one with the puffy, watery eyes and red, runny nose 🥴
In better news....FRIDAY!! 🙌

‘Her hair was messy.
Her eyes wild.
And her soul Free.’

Week one style challenge continues at @three_for_girls and it’s all about BOHO! Bohemian 70s style and glamour 😍
We have used the Alexandra maxi skirt to achieve this poncho look. (Swipe for more pics). The two side splits have become arm holes and an added belt to hold it together. I think it’s pretty cool? Such versatile pieces 😀 And barefoot because that’s generally what Zylee is anyway! Shoes and underwear are a nuisance apparently 🤣
This is a long time vacant block in our street. I asked her to stand just at the front of the yard but as you can see when swiping, she is hard to contain when curiosity sets in. I think she was hoping for something exciting inside that shed lol .

NURSING STRIKE!
Don’t worry the local hospital is still running smoothly, I’m talking about a strike of a different kind.... Don’t let this sweet face fool you, Tio has been a really little PITA this last 24 hours. For some unknown reason he has been very unsettled and many feeds he has been refusing the breast. He won’t even attempt to suckle, he just screams until I offer a bottle. Has anyone experienced this before?? Send help! (Mostly for my boobs who are really feeling it lol). .
Meanwhile the @harleyreiddesigns pre release opens TONIGHT!! So many gorgeous tee and onesie designs to choose from. We love our personalised name one! Discount code ZYLEE10 😀
And how gorgeous is this swaddle by @akissandacuddle 😍 Perfect unisex print which would make a great baby shower or newborn gift! Use code TIO10 for your discount x

Rainbow Baby...
It’s not a term I often use to describe Tio. After all, I already have two gorgeous, healthy kids and I’ve never suffered the horror of losing a child as such.... I won’t ever suggest that my story is as bad as those who have held a lifeless child in their arms.
I have however has my share of loss. The heartbreak of having the joy of conception taken away from you weeks or months later. Of losing that new little life that was growing inside you.
Today being Pregnancy and Infant Loss awareness day, I have decided to share my story. You do not need to read on but if you want to then feel free...
My first ever pregnancy resulted in an early miscarriage. I was only 6 weeks along when I started spotting and then cramping and by that night, the joy I’d felt just the day before had turned to heartbreak.
I was sad but determined to move on and try again and luckily I fell pregnant with Mason straight away.
When we decided to have a second child I didn’t even really consider miscarriage. I figured that had been a once off and I knew I could have a baby as I’d had Mason. Again we fell pregnant straight away and were overjoyed. I had all the signs of a healthy pregnancy. I was tired and sick and my tummy was growing I’m sure! At around 10-11 weeks the doctor did a scan and I knew from his demeanour that something was wrong. He couldn’t find a heartbeat and the foetal sack was too small for my gestation. He suggested that maybe my dates were wrong and I was only 5-6 weeks along which would explain it but I knew that wasn’t the case. Still, there began a week of multiple blood tests to measure hormone levels to see if the pregnancy was ‘viable.’ ..... it wasn’t. The levels, despite being super high (explaining why I was still nauseous) were dropping. The baby (I will call it a baby) had stopped growing a few weeks prior. A ‘missed miscarriage’ which meant my body hadn’t yet recognised it and expelled it so I had to have a procedure to remove it. I felt broken. Despite a previous miscarriage I hadn’t been prepared for this one and it had hurt so much worse than the first one. (Continues in comments)

Boy (noun), a noise with dirt on it. .
You’ve all heard that one before right. And chuckled knowingly to yourself quite likely 😂
Well I’m here today to change all that!! Ok I can’t do much about the noise part, in fact this product may induce shrieks of joy and growls of prehistoric animals BUT it will change the ‘dirt’ part at least 🙌
The @melvoryskincare jelly soaps are made with gentle, natural ingredients and contain a fun character inside (Mason has one of the Dino ones here). At his age, it’s hard to get him in the shower because he has more important things to do (like play minecraft on the iPad) but he was all for an outdoor shower (aka nudie run under the sprinkler) with his cool new soap! Hopefully you may actually be able to get yours to wash in a more civil manner but hey, this was fun and while the sun is shining warmly we may as well right!
Head to @melvoryskincare website to see the other fun jelly soaps available. They make an awesome Christmas gift and you can use code DREAMS10 for a discount 😀🦖🙌
