Who I am
I am Kirsty, the creator, editor and main writer of Navigating Baby. I am the proud mummy to two little boys and twin girls. It is now 11 years since I became 'mummy'. Sometimes I have navigated my way through the world of mummyhood easily and other things I have found really hard.
Either way I have built up years of knowledge and skill about parenting boys and girls, raising twins and managing family life as well as parenting a child with autism and speech and language difficulties.
There have been so many times when I have needed to look for advice on the internet and have often found it impossible to find information written by someone actually in my situation. Sometimes I just wanted to hear that someone else had not been able to get their baby to stop crying, potty train, sleep through the night or eat their dinner and I have found that in the competitive world of parenting it is not always possible to find that someone and so I started my own parenting website to share my expertise.
Having a baby and raising children is a wonderful, but often challenging journey for which there is no sat nav and no manual. I wanted to create a space to store all of the useful facts I have found out and to share these along with any hints and tips I may have. This is what you will find on Navigating Baby.
The site is mostly written by me so is heavily focused on mumlife and what it is like to be a woman in her late 40s with four kids. Expect lots of mentions of peri menopause, ageing and all the efforts I go to to hold back the passage of time!
I hope to make you smile, be helpful and give ideas that make your life navigating baby just that bit easier. After all we have already made tonnes of mistakes so now you don't have to!
