And day one of the #pokkelokkieflatschallenge2019 has come to an end for us.  I am so proud of myself for making one whole day in flats!

"I am so emotional guys. Watching your baby grow up losing one baby thing and grasping a more grown up thing is hard. But, we always had breastfeeding. It has been the one constant thing while Dhyāna flourishes and grows up. But here I am, tears in my eyes, stumbling on my words because I don't want to say it out loud. My baby girl is self weaning. And whilst she isn't phased, which is exactly how I wanted it to be, my heart is breaking."  My baby is self weaning, and my heart is breaking!

I can't stand seeing mommy bloggers showing only the good and 'picture perfect' moments on their socials! Don't get me wrong, those pictures are beautiful and necessary (I suppose) and I am also guilty of this. But when I became a mama I wanted real and raw motherhood, which I battled to find, so that's my purpose behind my blog.  I want to be real, raw and honest about our journey. Yes we have magical days but we also have days of hell. It's normal and nothing to be ashamed of!

Mom when everyone wakes up VS Mom when it's bed time! Anyone else?

Believe it or not, your baby also needs time and comfort to adjust to the way his or her life is now. Never forget that they had everything they needed in your warm womb, which one day just suddenly disappeared. It’s frightening for them, don’t you agree? So the best thing to do is try to ‘mimic’ the womb in the outside world. So how do you do this?  Skin to skin is your answer!  Read my blog to find out more!

“What the hell do you feed your child?”  “At her age all I fed my child was scrambled eggs!”   I get these types questions so often, especially when people find out that Dhyāna is a vegetarian that does not eat eggs. (This makes us lacto vegetarians, if you want to be specific) So anyways, I thought I’d write a blog post about what Dhyāna typically eats in a day.   Happy reading!

In part 1, I wrote about the tips, tricks and bad advice that people have given to me, and I briefly mentioned some of mine too. In this post I wanted to share what worked for us during the first 12 months of Dhyāna’s life on planet earth.  I cover: The Hospital Bag, the car seat, sleeping, co-sleeping, routines, toys and more!   #yashodablogs #motherhoodoflove #mommyblogger #wifemomboss

These are a few of my favorite things 😍💗  Curious about cloth nappies? Read my blog post all about them! Modern Cloth Diapers or nappies as we call them in South Africa are an upgraded version of toweling diapers/nappies that were used in the 'good old days' aka when I was a baby.
