Details

The Baby Bubble, hosted by twins Jessie and Clare Stephens (who had their first babies just 6 months apart), dives into the absurdity and hilarity of the first few months of newborn life. From the first post-birth poo, to the myth of schedules, and the absolute mayhem that comes with trying to leave the house.

If you’re looking for advice you’ve come to the wrong place, but if you want someone to crawl down into the chaos with you, we’re already here and the water is great!

The Six Month Check Up No Mum Asked For

It’s time for the six month check up, which is apparently a thing we weren’t aware of.

So, how are we fairing in the baby bubble thus far? Well, we’re still being kept awake at night by the concerning shape of our babies heads, but at least we’re raising tiny geniuses. 

But maybe that’s just our parenting toxic traits coming out to play…

I Tried To Leave The House And Now Everyone's Crying

I Tried To Leave The House And Now Everyone's Crying

Leaving the house pre-baby: get ready, grab phone and keys, leave. 

Now: it's been four hours and two changes later, we're all crying and I've forgotten a spare onsie.

From forgetting what to pack, a negativity toward umbrellas and a magic bag these are all the ways we've survived, not thrived, leaving the house. (If only for a walk around the block which is a huge accomplishment TBH).

Sorry But… Were You Always This Incompetent?

Sorry But… Were You Always This Incompetent?

He doesn't feel any guilt about outsourcing. I feel guilt about everything.

We thought we had a pretty good grasp on who we were entering parenthood with... that was, until they had to execute the parenting part.

And look, bless their cotton socks for trying, but we have some notes…

"Sleep And Routines And HAHAHAHAHA"
MAY 15, 2024
"Sleep And Routines And HAHAHAHAHA"

There are two questions every new parent dreads... Are you in a routine yet? How’s the baby sleeping?

Bedtimes, routines and the idea of sleeping through the night all feel like wild west concepts while you’re in the baby bubble.

And we might just have to holster our weapons for this unwinnable battle.

Find Your Village & Get The F**k Out Of My House

Find Your Village & Get The F**k Out Of My House

The village is there for the vibes.

Nothing says “here if you need” like rocking up unannounced, disrupting the routine, dirtying some dishes and then ducking out when the baby starts crying.'

They say it takes a village… but what they forget to tell you is that the village can kind of be annoying.

Look, we’re not being ungrateful. Mostly, we’re just really bored & tired.
