As the picture suggests, I have a dilemma. It’s not a big one, but it’s there.
Now, I have been quiet for quite some time, though on my twitter and Facebook I have not been (so you might want to run and give me a like and a follow! )
Currently this blog is on wordpress.com, BUT I have recently bought a domain and with that comes the option of switching to WordPress.org! Continue reading →
Earlier I posted on the blog’s Facebook pagea video that shows us a deep look into the world of car seat’s, testing and real life experiences. It talks about testing, and especially the sort that you read about in magazines, the “Best Buys”, the “Parents recommend” and so forth. These seats are, all most always, forward facing.

Have a look at this video, the car seat is not compatible (but correctly installed in the car! ) with the car it’s installed in, a Rover 75, and this is what happens:
To me, this is scary to watch!
Have you ever come across this? Would you buy the car seat if after seeing this?
Like most breastfeeding mothers I choose to breastfeed wherever I am, no matter where that might be.
Usually I have no problems sitting down in public, or standing around or walking about if I’m wrapping. Your as likely to see me in the display section of A.S.D.A “whipping out the boob” so to speak (only I’ve actually never come across this as pretty much all ‘breast feeding tops’ are made to help you with the “oh so needed decency”…) as you are finding me in the car ‘topping him up’ before our journey home.
And sometimes… just… sometimes… I feel brave and wonder off into the unknown… Continue reading →
