Sleepy Lotion And The Spectrum

Hello There!

As you know there’s been so much hype about the sleepy body lotion from Lush, so I thought I’d give it a go myself.

Why did I buy Sleepy lotion ?

It is my understanding that sleep problems are very common with those on the spectrum. Generally speaking my Little Nut is a good sleeper ,  when he finally falls asleep it’s usually for about 10-12 hours, so  what sleep issues do we have?

  •  I’ve mentioned previously about my Little Nut waking up with me on days I have work here, no matter how quiet I am he wakes up and doesn’t go back to sleep till I leave the house .
  • The biggest problem is the process of actually getting him into bed and off to sleep in the first place. It takes forever ! He climbs in and out of bed several times, he has like a sudden of rush of energy and becomes restless , spins around in circles, has to tug on my hair and a lot of pressure hugging is required.

Return To Work Part 2

I was inspired to write this post after receiving the signature tote from Hijabi Mama Treats. It shows an image of a Muslim woman holding a briefcase in one hand and a baby in the other. I stand by the message being portrayed by the designer.

“Mothers are strong , can raise children and work. We can do anything “.

On that note , its been over 2 years since I returned to work after a year long mat leave. You can read about my transition back to work here.

So 2 years later, how am I finding it…? Continue reading “Return To Work Part 2”

“I somehow managed to keep my business running and raise a beautiful boy all by myself.”

You know how all mothers say ‘Becoming a mother changed me for the better’, etc., right? I used to laugh at such people – all the clichés were a little too much for my taste. But then I had a baby myself and I started using the expressions I used to laugh at. Becoming a mother does change you for the better. Not only that, it changes the people around you, it changes the way you see the world, and, most of all, it makes you a stronger person.

Seeking Mothers Who Can Relate

I broke down in tears this morning and turned to my brother and friend.

I said –

They both told me –

” Connect with new mums , mums that can relate to you ‘
