Parents who fail at parenting

Parenting isn’t easy. Emily is 15m and walking everywhere and as amazing as it is that she is taking those big old steps and she’s exploring the world, you need eyes everywhere- at the back of your head just doesn’t cut it anymore. Tiny humans are crazy. In a world where everything is shared constantly…

Feed your child how you want, boob or bottle, mother knows best.
