New ! Child Health Channel

Regular readers of the blog will know that I am an online journalist for Blasting News UK. I tend to specialise in many parenting topics and trends so I am very excited to announce I have been given my own Child Health channel to host on the site!

Your one stop place to catch up with all things trending and relevant in the world of parenting.

‘Parenting or child rearing is the process of promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood.’

We live in an age of all things digital including the media which has revolutionised the parenting world. Information, advice and support is now available and the click of a button. Breaking news is viral within minutes. Subjects and topics, we would have only shared with a medical professional are now shared with the world, breastfeeding, post-natal depression, post partem bodies and miscarriage are all taboo subjects that have now been normalised via social media. The internet and all its various channels have been lifelines for many parents.

If we as parents have a problem, the first port of call is almost always the internet. Generally, you can be certain that someone somewhere has had the same problem, posted it and had many replies via the popular parenting forums we have come to rely on. The internet has simply transformed how we parent today, from over sharing, to seeking advice and support from others it is a crutch that many parents now depend on.

Debates, discussion and controversial parenting trends which we would not have previously been aware of are now popping up in our newsfeeds daily. It can be a bit of a minefield to filter through the sheer amount of parenting blogs, posts, tweets, and news articles so we have made it as easy as it can be, after all one thing parents need more of? Time.

So, look no further than to this channel dedicated to all things childcare and parenting.
We will highlight the good, bad and ugly side of parenting. This is an honest approach to the parenting topics and trends that everyone is talking about, and some you will most certainly soon be talking about!

Open to all, and non-judgemental we will cover all things from Peppa Pig to post-natal depression, glitter bans to toddler safety, celeb parents in the spot light to infant feeding and everything relevant in the world of parenting trends.

We will have a no holes barred approach to the controversial issues that are taking over the internet and will bring you the most popular tweets and content from the world of social media. We will continuously update you on a regular basis so you will not miss a thing!
Sit back, grab the lukewarm coffee you have been nursing all morning and enjoy while the kids are having a nap!

Dear Elijah, on your fourth heart day

Elijah the heart hero never letting anything stop him. Today  is your 4th heart day. It's 4 years since we took you down to Great Ormond Street for open heart surgery. It seems to have crept up on us again. Another whole year has passed but it hasn't changed how I feel about that day. Some have said that oh, by now surely you should have gotten over it after all it's been 4 years. The answer is I don't think I ever will. I have been thinking a lot about that day, where I signed the consent forms for them to take you and operate on you. To either save or take your life. That day was the worst of my life, the unknown certainty of whether you would come back up again. I held you as they put you to sleep. They gave me your dummy as they took you from me and laid you on the operating table as if you weighed nothing. I couldn't even kiss you goodbye in case it was the last time. That's why I won't ever get over it and those who have been in the

The time Fajita night resulted in having a baby in a bath.

The newest Cockerill Do you all remember my ever so optimistic natural birth plan? You can read it here. However, spoiler alert, it didn’t happen. What did happen was something no one was expecting. Wednesday the 5 th July… a mundane sort of day spent cleaning the house and doing the weekly shop. With Greg going back to work the next day I was determined to make sure everything was ready for when this baby arrived! I was three days off my due date and still hadn’t had one single sign this baby was imminently coming. I had been receiving messages from quite a few people asking if baby was here yet. I was getting fed up as everything I had tried to induce labour failed miserably and every morning for the last two weeks I woke up disappointed I wasn’t in labour! I gave up, walking didn’t help, pineapple made me sick and I was beginning to tire of the raspberry leaf tea. This baby was staying put. In the evening I put Elijah bed, and we began to settle down for the eveni

The one with Elijah's heart surgery.

We were back. April 22-28 2015, a year ago this weekend. In just two short weeks since we last went down to London. We had to go down the day before and check in and have another blood test. As all of the forms had been signed last time, we were out again within an hour or so. Back to the same family accommodation, in a different room and with a lot less luggage. Something felt different this time, although I didn't want to believe it was going ahead in the event it was cancelled again, deep down I knew it would be. The morning of the surgery I knew how I would feel as we had been through this all before. I didn't want to go out for a meal so we ate in the hotel room watching ch5 rubbish after Elijah went down in the travel cot. Its odd that through the whole pre admission, cancelled op and the actual operation I can remember what shit we watched on TV and what we ate for tea that night. One of those weird things that just sticks in your head. Sort of like when you rememb
