A day in the life of Reuben

Chicco Next 2 Me

Our little baby Roo is now 4 and a half months old, and I'd be lying if I said I've got this whole parenting thing down, but we're definitely getting the hang of it now. On a good day I can get up and out the house before 10am, and on a not so good day I realise it's 4pm and I've not cleaned my teeth or eaten. Some days I don't even brush my hair, and some days Reuben naps for long enough that I manage flicky eyeliner AND cleaning the entire flat. This boy gets more likes on instagram than I do (Can I really blame you though? No, no I cannot) so I thought I'd share an insight into his average daily routine.

HEY YOU GUUUUYS. It's been too long since my last blog post, as usual. Despite Reuben being in more of a routine and sleeping through the night, it means he's sleeping less during the day and we've been out and about so much I've literally had zero chance (or head space) to sit down and write a post. I've got lots of fun content to post over the next couple of months but you'll need to bare with me - even one blog post a week is proving tricky at the moment. So today I'm just popping in with a wee life update/favourites post to give you a round up of what I've been loving lately. I'm gonna try to do this once a month for sure. The things I'm Watching, Listening, Eating, Reading, and Loving. So, here goes!

Why I chose to encapsulate my placenta

Placenta Encapsulation

I'm not gonna lie, the first time I heard the words 'Placenta Encapsulation' it made me think of digging a hole in the garden, popping your placenta into one of those time capsules and burying it with a nice letter for some sort of good luck spell (or for your ancestors to discover hundreds of years later, yum) Well guys, I can confirm that's not the case! Placental Encapsulation is the practice of ingesting the placenta after it has been steamed, dehydrated, ground, and placed into pills. And you can guess by the title of this post that's exactly what I have done with my own, so I'm gonna share some reasons why.
