new mum fitness


we all get that feeling after we've had a baby, we feel we need to get fit shake off that baby belly and get our bodies back again. It's not always easy to find the time or the energy when you've got a baby but there are lots of things you can do which include using your buggy to help you keep fit.

If you head over to the kiddicare blog here http://www.kiddicare.com/blog/2015/06/new-mum-fitness/
there is lots of advice and information on New Mum Fitness including walking and jogging with your pushchair, they can also advice on the types of pushchairs that are best used for these activities.

I myself have been wanting to get fitter for a while now, I've lost all my baby weight now bump is one but I don't feel as fit as before and had previously looked into some classes but just haven't had the time to go.

I do quite a bit of walking everyday and had never thought about incorporating this into a fitness regeime.  Jogging is great way of getting fit and you can take baby and pushchair along too ( it is not reccomended you start jogging until 6 months after birth).  I think it's a great idea and I'm going to be trying this out with the help of kiddicare and www.sportsshoes.com

It's really important that you wear the right running shoes and there is a really simple test called a west test which will show you the right type of running shoes you need.  I have done mine and  you can see my result below.




 Mine told me I need a Support running shoe. As you can see the test is really quick and easy. it shows you exactly how to do it here http://www.sportsshoes.com/support/running_shoes_advice

I would love to hear all your thoughts on new mums fitness and how you get on if try any out, I will be doing a follow up post to let you all know how I get on with my buggy jogging.

Speech Delay

So bump is now 4 and he is having problems with his speech I'm at the point now where I'm thinking did I do something wrong? will he ever talk? and I just don't know the answers which is frustrating me so I can only imagine how frustrating it is for him.

His speech started off fine the usual mama, dad, dog etc then it just seemed to stop and no more progress was made and I was too worried at first because my eldest daughter who's almost 20 now didn't really say all that much until she started nursery.

By the time it came to his 2 year review I was slightly concerned and spoke with the health visitor about it and was referred to speech therapy, we waited a while for that and they only saw him once where the speech therapist sat and played with him and gave me things to do at home with him.

We did attempt for him to start nursery last April but it didn't go too well and he didn't go anymore, he is quite a handful and they wouldn't let him stay the whole s…

potty training a 4 year old

So as I said in my previous post about speech delay bump is now 4 and still not potty trained, I started off potty training at 2 and its just been a struggle ever since, I feel like I've hit a brick wall and I just don't know what to do anymore.

he wont sit on the potty or the toilet, have tried everything to encourage him, books, dvds haven't tried a reward chart because he would have no interest in that.  Took his nappy away but he will just wet or pooh himself and not care.

He wears a nappy to nursery and he is due to start reception in September, what am I going to do send him to school in a nappy? I cant do that, I'm hoping and praying he's just going to decide to do it on his own but he is quite happy still wearing a nappy with no prompt to change him if he's done a pooh.

I'm at a loss and feel like a total failure, I've potty trained his sisters perfectly fine so why cant I do it?
