My experience with breastfeeding

My experience with breastfeeding

[ 0 ] 28/02/2014 |

I breastfeed because I have milk. And since I have breast milk, I prefer spending my nights awake next to a hungry baby rather than next to a sick baby. There is tons of info explaining the benefits of breastfeeding. But why is it that we need to read such facts to be persuaded this […]

Be careful with commercial products that treat cradle cup!

Be careful with commercial products that treat cradle cup!

[ 0 ] 25/01/2014 |

Cradle cup might look horrible but it’s harmless and doesn’t bother the baby at all. It can last for a year, sometimes even more, and it’s absolutely common and in the range of normal. Parents, friends and relatives, even medical professionals (!), might be obsessed though, wanting it to go away now, fast. So far […]

I gave birth at 01:20, Saturday the 3rd of August. I was almost a week overdue but I realized something was happening since Tuesday night the 29th July. That’s when I started feeling period like cramps every night since I went into labour. On Thursday night, the cramp pains were getting stronger and more frequent, […]

This was Erik’s first Christmas and New Year’s holiday! And we spent it in Horten, Norway, daddy’s hometown. Usually the city is covered with snow during this time of the year, but we were greeted with a sunny day and a pleasant temperature which was above 0 (which is pretty warm according to the locals […]

Erik just got his first passport and we’re getting ready for our Christmas holiday up north, in cold Norway! Well, the perception of cold or warm is relative, since for my husband the current temperature in his hometown, which is just above 0, is considered “warm” whereas for me, coming from a Mediterranean, mild climate, […]

I can now get to grasp the kind of love that our parents feel for us. The kind of love that grows day by day as the parent and the baby bond. This love seems to be like a seed that gives roots, roots that encircle the heart and penetrate it deeper and deeper as […]

A heart-warming paragraph, short but full of wisdom, from grandpa Kostas to Erik for his Book of Wishes. Hi Erik, In this world that you came without being asked if you’d like to, a world that you’re gonna leave without wanting to, full of unjustice and malice, I wish that you only get to experience […]

Baby Book of Wishes

When Erik was born, we received as a gift from a good friend of mine, a personalized Book of Wishes. My friend bought a plain white notebook, and turned it into a piece of art using the decoupage method. She created this beautiful cover and also personalized the inside white pages. How do we use it? 1) When […]

Our little Erik seems to be very eager to communicate. He can now say all sorts of vowels and the international ( 🙂 ) word in the baby-world “agou”. When I have him on my lap and he’s in the mood for a ‘chat’, he will look at me in a very serious way, sometimes […]

My little man turned 180 degrees today for the first time

[ 0 ] 13/11/2013 |

Erik has mastered the skill of rolling from one side to the other, both ways, while on his back. Although this is an important milestone to his development, I wasn’t so overwhelmed to see it. But today morning he surprised me big time. It’s been a month since we started using the Fisher-Price Rainforest 1-2-3 […]
