Mummykind’s November Top 5

Wow – November is over already! Where has the year gone? It’s very nearly, dare I say it?, CHRISTMAS! I’m not sure whether we will continue our round up posts next year – what do you all think?

Top 5 Blog Posts

This post from Maria is number 1 this month!

I guess we know what everyone’s kids have been suffering with since the wintery weather came along!

This one from Sarah is still up there in the top 5! I guess it’s still Summer somewhere…

With the release of Frozen 2 we may need to plan a Frozen themed party to suit those winter birthdays!

We’d love to know if anyone has tried this during their pregnancy as recommended by Maria – get in touch!

This post is up at number 3 this month.

We must have had a few readers looking for gift ideas this month! I’m sure that many of these gift ideas for your paper anniversary could also be appropriate as Christmas gifts for your other half!

This one from Sarah is up at number 4 this month.

Last but not least, at number 5 we have Sarah’s birth story making a comeback!

Keep an eye out for Maria’s new birth story post all about baby no.2!

Top 5 Things we did

  1. Sarah took Kiera to see Little Mix at the O2 Arena in London! Coincidentally, Amy also went to see them the day before. Everyone had an amazing time and came away feeling so empowered. #GRLPWR anyone?

Top 5 Blog Posts

Sarah‘s post with tips on planning a Moana themed party is still top of this month’s roundup!

Up in second place is Maria‘s newest post all about how she is harvesting her colostrum at 35 weeks‘ pregnant, ready for baby number 2!

Our third best-performing post this month is Maria’s timeless tips on how to get your toddler through a cold – probably due to the high pollen count causing so much hayfever at the moment!

Next in fourth place is Amy‘s honest post about her fertility journey, a sequel to her post on having an ovary removed at 21 years old.

Last but not least, our fifth top post this month is a new one from Sarah about why she chose a common baby name for Olivia!
