Anxious Mum and Clingy Son

Snappy is a good couple of months into the clingy phase. I’m not sure how much more I can take of it. Because I’m the wrong mummy. Changes There are few different reasons why Snappy is feeling so clingy. It’s normal at this age for babies to be clingy apparently, …

Nine Months Old

Snappy is nine months old on Sunday. We’ve officially had him for as long as bethend had to carry him. She is definitely still feeling the effects of that but it doesn’t seem to have put her off having another one. Or me. As long as we have it at …
