Hi,

I'm Kirsty

and I am the main writer, editor and designer of Navigating Baby. I am also the mother of four children; two boys and twin girls

When I started Navigating Baby there weren't many other sites where you could find out what parenting was really like and there certainly weren't many (if any) that said it is ok to feel like 'you' has been stolen. Becoming a mummy is something I wanted for such a long time that it came as a shock to me that it wasn't always the perfect experience I had created in my head. I felt lonely sometimes as a new mum and I definitely felt like 'Kirsty' got lost in the midst of becoming mummy.


So I started Navigating Baby to rediscover me and to pass on the benefit of my experience as a mother and my understanding of what that means for you as an individual to other mummies just like me.


Motherhood and navigating baby is an amazing ride that I feel very lucky to be on, but it is hard and so this site is all about making it easier for you.


Navigating Baby will answer your burning questions about motherhood, I will tell you which baby, toddler and kid things and toys you need and which you should leave firmly in the store and I will always be honest with you about the tricky bits of being mummy; sharing the solutions that I have discovered whilst I have been Navigating Baby.

Navigating Motherhood

We are all about empowering other women and sharing the truth about motherhood.


Sure it is amazing and raising a child (or four) is an extraordinary experience, but it can be hard and we are all learning as we go so here at Navigating Baby we want you to know we struggle sometimes too.

Navigating Feeding a Family

Planning family meals and coming up with new ideas constantly is a mission!!


One that is not made any easier if you have a fussy eater, like I do, so in this section I am sharing all the recipes I use that work with even the fussiest of eaters in my household.


My favourite feeding a family recipes always involve hiding vegetables as it is just so satisfying when you know that your littles have eaten well.
