Happy International Women’s Day! I wish women were celebrated every single day and didn’t need a specific day/excuse for this. This is a long overdue post that I didn’t have time to finish, much less edit, before the horrors of Russian invasion of Ukraine. If you have spare change and want to donate or help, […]

Now that the pet human is 16months old, cloth nappies have become second nature to us. I started when he was 6-7 weeks old and haven’t looked back since. We’ve had to evolve our strategy as he got older because his output has increased and we’ve had to add extra inserts and prefolds and he […]

I can’t believe a year has gone by and the baby is ONE! I finally understand the clich√© phrase of “the days are long and the years are short.” We survived as a family – everyone is alive, healthy and happy, inspite of the many bumps we’ve had to navigate along the way! My sister-in-law […]

I fell into Motherhood by chance and it has been the most intense and rewarding life experience ever. They say the hardest work is always the best work – unpaid on top of that. Having a child was never on the cards, not to mention the impact on the planet. I’ve tried my best in […]

It’s been a while since I updated, the baby rarely naps and is always curious, wants to chitchat and hangout. A serious case of FOMO. I guess life is fair because he’s very high maintenance in the day time demanding full engagement but he started sleeping 10-11 hours through the night at 9 weeks old. […]

With Covid, no travel, a new baby and all, it is difficult not to turn Chicken Scrawlings into a Mum blog, but I’m still trying and I have lots of backdated content I never got round to posting that will hopefully inspire more cooking, crafting, and eventually travelling when this madness is over. Revisiting the […]

We’re just about to hit the 12 weeks mark and time has flown by. I’m surviving and having a lot more fun than I ever imagined. I feel like I’m driving blind every day on the adventure road trip of a lifetime. Every day/hour, I am doing something for the first time and learning something […]

Baby G turns 7 weeks this weekend and I’ve been cloth diapering part time for the last 6 weeks since we got back from the hospital. It’s been alot of trial and error, to say the least, wee leaks and figuring out his pee/poo schedule. Some tips on troubleshooting leaks. I cloth diaper during the […]

For the entire time I was pregnant I likened it to my cancer journey – you get plenty of unsolicited advice and fear-mongering paranoia don’t do this, don’t eat that, eat this ton of supplements, eat all these vitamins, buy this, buy that. ūüôĄ It was the only thing I could relate to as well […]

What strange times we live in. Baby G is now a little over 4 weeks old. I’ve revisited this earlier draft and just publishing now. I was afraid to do so in advance, with the anxiety of jinxing myself given my medical history. I gave birth via an elective C section as Baby G was […]
