I feel like at 8 months postpartum I can’t really describe myself as being deep in the postpartum bubble but sleep has not been a friend of my little one. I feel pretty good and my secret is co-sleeping. I’m not advocating for one way or another but for our family with 4 little ones this feels like the only way I can get decent rest. 4th time round I feel so much more at ease compared to with my eldest where I felt I had to follow all the “rules”. Studies have shown that most of us do end up co-sleeping so it’s important to know what is the safe way to do it rather than avoiding it but ending up in more unsafe positions.

This month I have been cooking the Nepalese Rice pudding for a dear friend who has just had a baby and cooking a little extra for myself. It's a nifty little base to have in the fridge. It is easy to reheat when in a rush in the morning and you can add a variety of toppings to it. In this cold weather I've really enjoyed eating it with poached apples and cinnamon. The ghee is nice and lubricating for the tummy, and easily digestible for a new mama. It is gluten free and kids can enjoy it too with toppings of their choice.
