Welcome to my blog!

Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Jasmin and I am a thirty-something first time Mum to my gorgeous daughter Layla Jade. When Layla was born in April 2010, I had no idea how much my life would change. While I had spent plenty of time with babies over the years, I had failed to fully appreciate just how much my life was to change when I became a mother. Becoming a mother has been like waking up on a new planet where everything looks the same but is oh so different. Nearly everthing I knew has been challenged and a whole new paradigm established.

I decided to start writing a blog when Layla turned six months as a way of helping new and expectant parents navigate the new world of parenting. I had read so many books and websites while I was pregnant and thought I was fully prepared. What I later found out was that all of my reading, while essential and recommended, bearly scratched the surface of what I needed to know. I often find myself thinking "why didn't I know that?" or "why didn't my friends/parents/teachers/doctors/nurses tell me about that?".

In my corporate career role, I help people to understand things, work through problems, provide research, negotiate and translate problems into solutions. I hope to use these skills in my blog by unveiling some of the hidden and secret information about parenting. I am by no way an 'expert' but I have found out some interesting information, resources, products and advice that I hope to share.

I try to post information every day or two so that there is something new for you to read when you come to visit.

I hope you enjoy my blog. Please leave me a comment so that I can continue to improve the information I provide. Why not follow my blog as a follower or through Networked Blogs on Facebook.
