He's back in Casts - Talipes


Back in July I blogged about 'H's physio appointment - Give my boy a break' and here we are just a couple of months later in the dreaded position I thought I wouldn't be able to handle.

Yep, he's back into casts. I've been quiet on here as life is just going at 110mph it seems.
Very little sleep & with the smalls back to school; throw in H's hospital appointments then E's eye hospital appointments then home life, baby & dog... I'm frazzled. On top of all that we have run out of coffee pods & only decaf left...It's 'I need coffee day'

Ok so H is back in casts, this is mainly because he's refusing to wear his ADM boots and his feet are relapsing. Yep I said it. >Que. the sad face< Massively rubbish timing with him starting primary school last week too but needs a must.

I want to say he's coping amazing,
I want to say he's happy,
I want to say he's used to it,
I want to say he's such a little soldier nothing fazes him anymore.
Truth is - the past few weeks have been a real test, a test of patience, a test of getting through the day with only 2 or 3 hours a sleep, a test of just how far this treatment can push H.
It's been awful, he will cry himself to sleep every night, he hates people seeing his casts, he hates the shoes he needs to wear over his casts.
The casts are over his knees meaning it's difficult to walk, impossible to run & for me just like having two babies.

We have weekly Physio appointments at the moment to see how the feet are each time.
Everything is just so super full on, H is 10 times more demanding, he struggles to dress himself & even get to the toilet.
I'm sure I am just babbling on now & my heads pounding.
I'm going to chill a bit before I've got to collect H at 12, he'll be able to do full days once his casts are off...

I'll keep you updated. 

Autumn Adventures with AmaWrap baby carrier

With the transition from Summer to Winter, we’ll start to feel a chill in the air, and what better way to keep your baby close and snug to you than using an AmaWrap baby carrier. Perfect for trips to see bonfires or visiting Christmas markets, babywearing is a fantastic alternative to pushing a buggy. It allows you to be as adventurous as you want to be whilst keeping your little one warm and close to you.

The AmaWrap Baby Carrier is easy to wear, soft – with no buckles or clips –, making it a perfectly simple accessory for your walk. AmaWraps retail at £39.99. For more information visit www.amawrap.com. 

Now more popular than ever, babywearing strolls are loved by the likes of Angelina Jolie, Ryan Reynolds and Nicole Kidman. The Autumn collection from AmaWrap has a beautiful range of colours to suit every autumnal wardrobe including Wine Maroon, Navy Blue, Oyster Grey, Mocha Cream and lots more gorgeous options.

All AmaWraps are 50cm x 5m lengths of fabric, manufactured to the highest standards from 100% soft cotton. They are suitable for use from birth to 15kgs and ensure ergonomic positioning of baby for the best hip position, whilst being comfortable for parents to wear all day. Each wrap is compact, and one size fits all – so no tricky harness or buckle adjusting required. It’s easy to tie and pop baby in and out. And for those who want it, the AmaWrap can be used for discrete breastfeeding whilst out and about.

In addition, the AmaWrap fabric is made exclusively for the product ensuring it has exactly the right amount of stretch both ways to be comfortable whilst giving optimum support to baby. Many wrapscontain elastane to provide the stretch, AmaWrap does not; the 100% cotton fabric is knitted in such a way to get the same effect, but naturally. Also, the dyes used are baby friendly, which means that all chewing and sucking on the sling by baby (and it will happen!) is absolutely safe.

Created by Founder Shabs Kwofie in 2012, AmaWrap is a home-grown UK-based company. Inspired by her African roots, Shabs purchased fabric from her local market after the challenging birth of her first baby so she could keep her close. Seeing how this changed her motherhood journey inspired her to create a product which allowed other parents to easily baby-wear.

Being such a believer in babywearing means Shabs has created AmaWrap to be more than just about the product; the mission is simple – to allow mums to be close to their babies. Her website and social media sites are designed to support new parents in their early baby journey. This means that AmaWrap offers advice and online help with all things baby-wearing and beyond, including C-section advice, breast-feeding support and baby wearing tips. In addition, you can find step-by-step guides and video tutorials on using the wrap - Shabs even offers personal Skype appointments for those needing any further product support!

So go on – keep your baby snug and warm this winter with AmaWrap. AmaWraps can be purchased at selected UK retailers and online at www.amawrap.com.
