Why My Child Does W Sitting

Why My Child Does W Sitting

W-sitting is when your child sits on the floor with knees together and feet on either side of their hips. It is called that because if you look at them from above, it looks like they are making a W with their body. If you see your child temporarily sitting in this position, or use they it as a transition stage to move in and out of other sitting positions…

Cold Feet in the Morning

I mean, it’s been a well lived and full 4 years, I have done my darnedest to be present and live each moment to the fullest with her.

Baby Food and Baby Led Weaning with Your Slow Cooker

As ya’ll probably know if you’ve been around here awhile, I did a couple of baby food making things, but then I quickly chucked that idea and did baby led weaning. I just don’t have the patience to spoon-feed a baby. When I was a nanny, it was the most annoying part of my day. The clean up was a drag, too. Baby Led Weaning is the lazy way to…
