Just Fed

Just Fed

I have a nearly 3 year old who I breastfed until she was 16 months and a 9 month old who I am still breastfeeding. With Eve, my first, it was literally the hardest thing I have ever done…. and this includes the time my 7 year old niece asked me to explain what a calorie is. Eve had tongue tie and wouldn’t latch properly and I was trying to shove my big fat engorged booby nipple into her teeny tiny newborn mouth and it just wasn’t going well. I… View Post

Maman Loves…. The Willow Tree

Maman Loves…. The Willow Tree

Considering how regularly I find myself traipsing through Cheltenham I’ve left it far too long to visit one of it’s newest additions, the gorgeous little boutique craft shop that is The Willow Tree. In the Brewery end of town and almost opposite one of my favourite restaurants, Bar and Wok, it’s a real hidden gem that everyone needs to know about.

The idea of taking the children to Glasto actually fills… View Post

Let’s Do This

Ahhhhhhh……. it’s so nice to write a proper post! It’s been such a long time and the site is so busy with lots of new and exciting events and more and more mums wanting to get involved that I find myself having less and less time to just sit down and spill the contents of my head onto this virtual notepad. It’s been a funny old month. The summer comes around and the focus of life seems to change. The winter lends itself so nicely to getting stuck in to… View Post

CheltenhamMaman HQ Interviews Sarah-Jane Worboys of Bodega Womenswear

I’d seen lots of snaps of the Mamans de Cheltenham on Instagram wearing bits from Bodega Womenswear on Suffolk Parade and always knew they looked gorgeous. But to be honest with a less than perfect figure (though I’m learning body confidence) and quite literally no idea what to wear to flatter it I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel a bit intimidated about going in. I also wrongly assumed that the prices were all top end and that the staff would be intimidating- so the invitation to go… View Post
