Postpartum Stories | KateDazeTwins

Wednesday, 20 June 2018


The other week I wrote a post about 'How to feel like yourself again postpartum' and some lovely companies and people got in touch with me to offer their help and advice. I absolutely love reading people's birth stories but there doesn't seem to be a lot about what happens next. So I plan on making a little feature about this.

Identical Twin Diaries - Eleven (and a half) Months Old

Friday, 15 June 2018

Next week, the girls turn one... it feels like only yesterday I found out I was pregnant! I had a little read over one of my early twin diary posts when they were only five weeks old and I couldn't believe how much things have changed. I look back now and I'm actually pretty proud of how chilled out I managed to stay through those first few early weeks.

HOW TO FEEL LIKE YOURSELF AGAIN POSTPARTUM

Thursday, 7 June 2018


It's been nearly a year since I had Edie and Mabel and I'm torn between saying the time has flown over and dragged by. The days have often felt so long (not forgetting quite a few nights) but when I look back to them been born, it feels like only yesterday.

Teething... where do I start? To be honest, at the point when Matchstick Monkey got in touch with me via my Instagram, I hadn't given the subject too much thought. Neither of the girls had shown any sign of anything appearing and I was sort of hoping they'd wake up one day with a full set of pearly whites. 

'I'm so glad I'm not you.'

Monday, 4 June 2018


The other day I was out and about doing a little window shopping. I was minding my own business waiting for the lift in Dunelm Mill and when it arrived a man and woman got out and saw me standing waiting with my Bugaboo Donkey pushchair. The hoods were completely down as the girls were having their afternoon nap, right on schedule and after a pleasant morning out and about. As the man walked past me, he laughed and said: "oooh double trouble, I'm glad I'm not you."

Do you know the one thing that has really amazed me about our Water Babies journey, is that Edie and Mabel are 11 months old now and weigh around 16lbs, but I can comfortably let go of them in a swimming pool and know that they'd cling on to the edge?!!

A Roadtrip With 11 Month Old Twins

Wednesday, 30 May 2018


If you're a regular reader then you'll know I work on our family business Scream Factory. If you aren't then to give you a little insight, it's the largest purpose built Halloween Haunt in the North East and even for me, knowing where all the scares are, is still absolutely terrifying. We were lucky enough to be nominated for two awards at the European Scare Awards held by ScareCon at Alton Towers last week and as much as I wanted to go along with the team, having 11 month old twins, I didn't think I was going to be able to.
