Mummy Matters

Real mums telling it how it is...

Bubba name: 

Betsy

How old is your little one? 

9 months  

How has motherhood changed you?

Everything is different now and I find it hard to remember what it was like before!  It’s about putting my daughter’s needs first and I have to be very organised at home as there is always so much to do!

What items are in your handbag (baby related)? 

I keep a couple of Betsy’s toys in my handbag – a little book and a teething toy for her to play with when we’re out and about.  I’ve also got lots of tissues in there as her nose is often running!

What things could you not live without?

My husband, my family and my friends are wonderful and help me so much – I couldn’t do it without them.  Having a good support network is so important and it’s also really good for Betsy to spend time with lots of other people.

Any good advice you received (or could give)? 

My friend from work wrote me a lovely card just before I had Betsy.  She gave me some little words of wisdom about being a new mum and every now and again I read the card to remind myself of what she said and it really helps.

Do you use any good books or websites that you’d like to share to help you? 

‘Baby to Toddler Month by Month’ by Simone Cave and Dr Caroline Fertleman (there is a week by week version as well for 0 – 6 months).  I find it so helpful and a really good place to refer to for tips and advice.  www.babycentre.co.uk is a very good website to find answers to lots of different random questions. 

Describe your life now in one word:

Busy!
