It’s Okay If You Follow All The Advice And It Still Doesn’t Work

It’s Okay If You Follow All The Advice And It Still Doesn’t Work

Advice
Someone left a newspaper open on an article called “Low libido: tackling the loss of desire” the other day. It was the photo that caught my eye first, but then I saw the title and I was quick to move on. It’s not exactly the kind of thing you want to be caught reading in a public space. In case someone sees you like, and thinks you’re reading it for personal reasons. Hardly the stuff of conversation over coffee with colleagues.

But one crucial element missing from those books is that all important local information – what goes on in your maternity unit – and that’s where the importance of Irish pregnancy books come in. There’s not many Irish pregnancy books thou...

My Ultimate Tip For New Mums & Dads

Advice, Mums & Dads
This came to me in a flash yesterday because even three years later I have to remind myself to do it and it’s something every mum and dad needs to do as soon as the thought occurs to them and they have the time to act on it. This tip transcends all parenting styles and preferences. It applies to every single new mother at home with her newborn baby no matter how she feeds them, where they sleep, what kind of nappies they wear etc. It applies to dads too when they’re the primary caregiver and there’s no one to give them a five minute dig out. It even applies to parents with children who are long passed the baby stage and know that each time it happens they can’t believe they fell for it again. It’s actually the ultimate parenting tip. It’s not a “have a read of this and see if it sits...
