Flying with a baby in the wave of a pandemic

Over the past decade I have travelled very frequently, taking some 30 flights per year at my peak. Flying has always felt like the norm to me. Like getting a bus. Then I had a baby, and things slowed down a bit. However, we did manage to take our first flight with her in March 2020. Then there was a pandemic and no one was flying for a while. As I started my...

The first flight with our baby

Just like with our first experience of travelling with our newborn, our first experience of air travel with our baby gave us mixed feelings. Excitement at the fact that she would be going on her first flight, but nerves at how it would go. Normally I love air travel and airports (even those early morning flights). I love getting there and sitting in departures...

Make Your Next Holiday Productive With These Fun Ideas

Going on holiday is seen as an indulgence in our modern, consumer culture. It is something that people do to escape the stresses and strains of their work and, quite frankly, put their feet up.    But while lounging around beside the pool can be a great experience, some of us have this gnawing feeling that we’re wasting time.

Messy eating: Our weaning journey

As with many stages of parenthood, I dived into the weaning stage with a mix of anxiety and excitement. I remember saying months ago that I couldn’t wait for our little one to try ‘real food’ mainly as I had hoped she would need less milk feeds, and therefore reduce the amount I would need to express milk for her. Starting to wean Initially we had...

Self isolation with a baby

Self-isolation with a baby. What a title for a blog post, and one which I had never thought I would be writing.  4 weeks ago, I was in Mallorca and excited to be writing things such as “flying with a baby” and “Mallorca, Spain: our first family holiday”.  Hopefully, I will write those posts one day. Somehow it doesn’t feel that appropriate to be writing about travel...

Adding An International Twist To British Food Favourites

Image Credit Pixabay.com License CC0 When you travel the world and taste all of the amazing food that it has on offer, returning to UK cuisine can be a bit anticlimactic. Britain is not really known for its food on the world stage, in fact, it is quite often the butt of many an international joke.  Of course, there are plenty of things that are great about British...

My baby essentials

Before having a baby, my daily essential items would more or less consist of my phone, purse, keys and a bottle of water. If travelling I’d also have my camera and passport. When preparing to have a baby, we looked at a number of lists of so called baby essentials (google it, and you’ll get one hundred and one different lists). We also talked to friends...
