Hello and welcome to the crazy journey that is parenthood..
Milk Drunk Diary was launched in early 2015 when I became a ‘Mom’ for the first time to my son ‘Boo’. My good friend and co-founder Aidan, coerced me into sharing my experiences, offering an ‘honest’ voice for other parents who have a baby, but no idea what to do with it!
What was meant to be a cathartic and creative release on maternity leave, somehow turned in to one of the leading parent blogs. We are constantly humbled to have amassed such a following of more than 28,000 followers here and on social media.
My ambition was to offer truisms as a first-time parent. Bored of reading the same old advice ‘sleep when the baby sleeps’ (entirely impossible), I wanted to know the important things; like what the hell is ‘tongue tie’, what’s the difference between romper suits and sleepsuits, and what essentials I need for travelling with a tot. And so here I am, electronic pen to iPad, sharing it all with you.
Why Milk Drunk? Well, as any parent knows, that satisfying look on your baby’s face after a hearty feed is priceless. That woozy ‘I don’t know my limit’ expression kinda reminds you of your husband when you first met him. It evokes a mixture of love and laughter. And that’s exactly what we hope to bring you too.
