  • Let's not talk about sexPosted on February 23, 2017 by Antenatal Online My parents did not mention either a bird or a bee to me. They decided to stay quiet on the issue of periods, puberty and the like, but this was the North in the 70's. I'm sure I wasn't alone in my ignorance.

Now I applaud the fact that TV is limited and I am impressed that they are expanding their horizons over their Cocopops while my two sit transfixed, slack jawed, by various kinds of crap... Read More
  • 8 things I know about breastfeedingPosted on June 21, 2016 by Antenatal Online Breastfeeding is an emotive subject and a difficult journey for many. For some of those who want to breastfeed but fall along the wayside, the stress and guilt can be immense. It is true that parenting can be stressful and guilt inducing full stop. Will my child ever realise he has a bed in his own room? Is it acceptable to feed him peanut butter sandwiches twice a day every day for 3 years? Read More
