Do I Want to be A Hipster Dad?

David Coppi - 25th Aug 16

As a new dad, I desperately want to be cool in my daughter’s eyes. Sure, she’s only nine months old but there will come a time when she’ll work out what sort of dad I am. At the moment I’m the skinny jeans, faded...

Am I Invisible?

Shaun Hurr - 28th Jun 16

It’s getting near to dinner time and my youngest child has just fallen over, the tears are flowing and in he comes.  I reach out my arms to hug him but all I can hear is “mummy, mummy!”  My heart sinks, this happens every...

Baby Talk: Is GooGoo GaGa a big fat NO NO?

Giles (AKA YOU THE DADDY) - 8th Aug 16

If you’re an avid reader of my blog, it’s highly likely that you’ll know the following two things about me. Firstly that I’m the proud uncle to twelve adorable nephews and nieces. And second, that I’m a complete stickler when it comes to punctuation and grammar....

BLW or NIMK

Ben Wiffen - 3rd Aug 16

Baby Led Weaning is so hip right now it’d be a sin to do anything else. It’s champions are one step away from being the new ‘Breast Milk Nazis’, shovelling the dogma down your throat like the purées it’s proponents are so against. So...

A letter to my pre-child self

Simon Hooper - 22nd Jul 16

Hey, how’s it going? So you’re having a baby. Congratulations! I know what you’re thinking (after all I’m you!) – You’ve got a load of questions buzzing around in that head of yours and you can’t quite deal with them and that’s totally understandable....
Co-Sleeping

You’re exceptional but not the exception

Bradley Gerrard - 22nd Jul 16

It’s common to think everyone else around you with children is dealing with it all so much better. Why is it you imagine they must be coping with those multiple wake-ups with ease and grace compared to your bitchy altercations with one another at...

Why Is Fatherhood Seen as a Part-Time Job?

Hadley Coull - 4th Jul 16

Last year, I took seven months off work to raise my daughter. Apparently, I’m one of the 2% of Dads who take such extended paternity leave here in the UK, and the first within my organisation to do so. I had a marvellous time....

Baby on a Plane

Ben Wiffen - 25th Jun 16

As a younger man, I vowed never to take any future children on a plane. My wife and I lived in Amsterdam for three years before coming back to start a family and we flew often for weekend getaways or to see family in...

A new world: A letter to my daughter

Bradley Gerrard - 24th Jun 16

I’ve woken up this morning to a country I don’t recognise, my love. One which has voted to leave the European Union in the belief it can be better outside. To say I’m disappointed is an understatement but an even more overwhelming emotion is...

The 1st Haircut

Jack Lemon - 21st Jun 16

By all accounts my son has a fairly impressive head of hair. When wet it can reach as far as the middle of his back. But things were getting out of hand. I’m all for the ‘surfer’ dude look but the boy has to...

Is it A Boy or a Girl?

BonjourMini - 28th Jun 16

We decided that we would go with the surprise option on whether we would find out the gender of Mini or not. So here I pose the question, will it be a ‘Girl Mini’ or a ‘Boy Mini’ and the responses we get to...

Father’s day: What I really want…..

Simon Hooper - 18th Jun 16

Once again Father’s day is rapidly approaching and mums and children are scrambling to pull together ideas on what to get the man in their lives. This can be a difficult proposition. I can’t speak for all men but I know that I’m not...

The Delights of Being a Daddy

The Dad - 19th Jun 16

It’s sometimes easy to forget how great it is to be a parent, especially when your beautiful child has screamed and cried for the last 6 hours and you’ve not slept properly in weeks. So I thought I’d get these down to remind me...

All-too-absent Father

Steve Gray - 18th Jun 16

  19 is a great age to make a career choice!  You’re young, fearless and full of ambition!  But what happens later on, when you’re life and circumstances have changed?  When you’re no longer just looking-out for number 1?  How do we cope when we have...
