And Onto Moo-Milk We Go…

You may have read posts in the past detailing Burrito Baby’s issues with milk and how her doctors came to the conclusion that she had a Cows Milk Protein Allergy (CMPA) because of digestive discomfort and behavioral issues. We’ve dutifully fed her on the vile, raw-potato smelling formula milk, made mostly of gluscose syrup, that she was prescribed and tackled the minefield that is dairy-free weaning, but there’s been a spanner in the works.

Here Comes the Summer!

There’s a definite hint of Spring in the air where we are in the South East; the sky has been blue more often than it’s been gray and we’ve not had any rain for at least we week, which means our thoughts are definitely fixed firmly on warmer weather.

Take Your Theory Test and Win an iPad!

Husband and I often talk about road theory when we’re in the car; I’ve been driving for 13 years and although he doesn’t have a car licence, he’s ridden bikes for many years which means his road sense is exemplary.
