Another big adventure

Teddy has only just turned 12 weeks on Thursday and this is my first shopping trip with him. I tell you, shopping with a newborn saves you money. Walking round Primark and Teddy wakes up screaming, clearly doesn't like this seasons clothes. You soon realise you do not need that extra clutch bag and vest top. But he was a massive hit with all the ladies in Primark, only when he strop crying mind you. So I've learnt that you get the stretchy jeans you went in for and make a swift exit.

However shopping with the sister makes it easier as she is always ready for a bear hug. It is so nice when i look into the buggy to see my little Teddy dressed in his gruffalo onesie and know he is worth more then all the clutch bags in the world.

Talking of onesies this Gruffalo one, I found in Debenhams has been a god send this winter, plus he looks absolutely adorable, I have found one similar in the Debenhams sale or this fun Gruffalo suit from Mothercare  perfect for any little monster.

So what have I learnt from my first shopping trip with my 12 week old, shop quickly and take someone along with you for cuddling the little one!

A new mum on a journey

Tiny Teds is a place for me to share my journey as a mummy to a gorgeous boy Teddy, being a new mum the last 12 weeks has already been a massive roller coaster of emotions and nappies. My hopes for the blog is to share and discuss my opinions of being a mummy, adapting to this new and exciting lifestyle whilst having the opportunity to communicate with other mums and hear their experiences. 

A little background on my experience so far, Teddy has suffered and is still suffering from colic and silent reflux, which has been tiring and emotional with everyone stating that 'it will get better', which is lovely to hear but also frustrating when you want to enjoy every moment with your newborn but 3am in the morning and you are still trying to make your little bundle of joy who has now turned into a red faced bundle comfortable, but due to the colic and reflux Teddy seems to find the cot like a prison cell. 

I'm a teacher who is use to timetables and deadlines and I have soon realised the only structure I work to now is to make Teddy happy and comfortable. Tiny Teds I will share my journey with my Teddy Bear who can be as cuddly as bear but also a grizzly bear
