I have always been a worrier from an early age, which then led to anxiety about various things and situations. My anxiety seems to have escalated since I've had the little ones and sometimes it's consuming. Some days I have that knotting feeling in my stomach and I'll be worried all day - but about what? I really couldn't tell you, as I have no clue myself.
I'm not a young mum myself as I had our first, Archie, when I was 31. My mum was a young mum - she had me at 19 - and also my nan had my mum at 18. As a mum you make so many sacrifices and put things on hold until your little ones grow up.
I speak to these ladies everyday in some shape or form. We share our highs and lows without judgement. They are my go to ladies with just about everything. There is always one of us there day or night to help celebrate or a shoulder to cry on or talk things over.
I'm totally shocked and appalled at the proposals the CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) has made to ban writing certain prescriptions for dairy free formula in some areas in the UK. If this had been brought in to place when Archie and Frankie were babies I know that we would not have been able to afford £608 a month in formula for Frankie's Neocate milk.
Both the ankle biters have milk allergies. Archie is lactose intolerant and had mostly outgrown this at 15 months old. The only thing he can't have now is an actual glass of milk but can eat all foods containing milk and lactose, which is amazing.
