Emma Reed

Blogger and Author of 'Your Teething Baby, from one parent to another'

I am a full time Mum to my two year old son. I decided to write my book 'Your Teething Baby, from one parent to another' due to my son's experience through this development. I found that clear information about what was available, what may work, what true symptoms there are and how to cope with each one was difficult to come across. I wanted to create a one stop book to provide all the information a parent may need during a very painful process. I self published my book with Amazonin February 2016. It is available as a paperback copy for £10.99 and as a kindle edition for £6.50.
I blog about our life, experiences, DIY, parenting, my opinions and I do the occasional review.

Children And Dogs

Molly was 12 when Jake was born and I can honestly tell you that she sulked. She refused to sit in the living room with us- believe me we tried and tried to reassure her with cuddles, treats, keeping her toys out and not letting the baby paraphernalia take over too much of the home too quickly.

The Guilty Parent

No one tells you that one of the many feelings you will get from becoming a parent is the over whelming guilt through almost everything that goes on in your week. It may sound odd, and to those without children it will sound insane, but I personally feel guilt more than any other emotion on some days

Time To Ditch The Dummy?

Oh I've had the comments, even from strangers, about having 'that thing' in his mouth and I've had to defend it many a time, each time with me thinking 'why should I have to?!' Why do others think it is ok to judge the way we do things and our parenting choices?

My Open Apology To Parents

To all the people who became parents before me I give you this open apology, for I now know exactly what you have been through, why you are so tired and why being a stay at home parent is in fact the hardest job around.
