26 months in & 15 weeks prego: pregnancy, potty training and telling sibling of new baby
Hello! Thank you for tuning in this week.
Today there are four parts to the podcast, starting with pregnancy (if this is a trigger for you skip to 16 minutes in). Pregnancy chat is followed by your array of questions, followed by potty training and telling a sibling of a new baby.
On the podcast this week I am sharing your advice and experience with both potty training and telling a sibling of a new baby. What is better than other mums advice who have been in the exact place you are now? I explain why I have done this on the podcast, but it is so incredibly helpful and I really appreciate all of you who wrote in to share your experiences with all of us.
Back next week!
Please do head over to mumtalkpodcast on instagram to be a part of the conversation and share your wonderful advice with us all on the podcast next week. I will be putting question boxes up in the next few days.
Lots of love

Lockdown and festive ideas!
On this weeks podcast I answer your questions which have me chatting a little too much about Christmas, but with lockdown starting tomorrow I do believe a little festive spirit is needed!
Fun festive things to do through lockdown and into December
and briefly touching on what we have changed with A's sleep (do listen to last 2 weeks podcasts for Sleep) and relationships with toddlers in lockdown.
Within this episode I share my thoughts on the fabulous Out n About Nipper Single. As you'll hear I think it is fantastic, if you'd like to take a closer look here is the website link http://outnabout.com/product/nipper-single (This product was gifted in return for an honest review).
Have a lovely rest of your week and I so appreciate you listening. If you're not yet subscribed please do, and I always appreciate a review if you have a moment.
Sleep Special with Hattie Frank, Certified baby and toddler sleep consultant
I feel like this weeks podcast is the podcast you have all been waiting for! Even if we have perfectly sleeping children (I can only dream) with the clocks going back this week I bet not so many of us enjoyed our 'extra hour in bed'!
Today I am joined by Hattie Frank, certified baby and toddler sleep consultant, founder of Not Another Peep. Hattie kindly reached out when Amandine wasn’t sleeping well and after speaking with her and gaining so much insight, getting her on the podcast was an absolute must and luckily for us all Hattie agreed!
Hattie starts by outlining the perfect sleep setting for your little one and things to check if they are waking. We then move into your questions, split into under the age of 1 and over the age of 1 to help with clarity.
We so hope this podcast helps many of you, I can honestly say that even making the smallest of changes with Amandine we have noticed a huge difference! Amandine has gone from recently waking and needing to be settled up to 5 times a night to waking once and self settling....and as you can believe I am over the moon!
You can reach Hattie at notanotherpeep.com or on instagram at notanotherpeep.
Please if you love this episode and the podcast do rate and write a review, it helps so much and especially helps other mums to find our community! Also if you are not yet subscribed, subscribe and the next episode will land right on your phone.
Have a lovely rest of your week

Pregnancy Loss with Natalie Lowe
TRIGGER warning: within this podcast we talk about miscarriage.
On the last day of Baby Loss Awareness week I would like to share this chat I had the honour of having with Natalie Lowe. Please ensure you have read the show notes before listening to this podcast.
Natalie Lowe, whom some of you may recognise from Strictly come dancing, now mum to a beautiful baby boy Jack, bravely shares with us her devastating miscarriages.
It was such a pleasure speaking to Natalie. She gives us an insight into a dancers career, her life on Strictly Come Dancing, magically meeting her husband, planning a marriage in 3 months and finding out she was pregnant with her first baby just before.
On return from her wedding she was told of her miscarriage, devastating news that started a downward spiral in her life. 5 months later on her honeymoon she found out she was pregnant once again and history repeated itself. Natalie shares with us how she got through this incredibly painful time, how and where she reached out for help and support.
I hope Natalie and I’s conversation today can be of some support or comfort to anyone who has been through or is going through a miscarriage.
Natalie is an ambassador for Miscarriage Association. If you need to reach out you can access support here: https://www.miscarriageassociation.org.uk
Sending you all love

Excellent, informative and down to earth
Love this podcast. Emma is such a comfort and font of knowledge, and her voice is very calming too! I love the personal updates about her motherhood journey as well as the guest interviews, and Emma’s confidence in how she brings up her daughter is so reassuring. Thanks Emma for such a brilliant podcast, I hope it never ends ☺️.
I started listening to Emma’s podcast from the very beginning when my daughter was a few months old and I found it so comforting, informative and uplifting. Emma is so warm & engaging it feels like you are catching up with an old friend. There is so much to learn from Emma herself and the guest speakers. I find myself nodding in agreement and relating to so much of what Emma says. I can’t recommend this podcast highly enough especially during these strange times we are living through when people are feeling more isolated than ever.
Thank you Emma for sharing your experiences and helping so many of us mums. :)
If I could give it 10 stars I would!
I have listened from the very beginning, when I first found out I was pregnant and have loved it ever since. It has helped me with every aspect from pregnancy, preparing for baby, birth to everything after. I felt so prepared by the time my little one arrived I felt organised, knowledgable and calm which I strongly feel led to my amazing birth! Listening to Emmas podcast is like chatting with your friend and I love hearing all about adventures and life with little Amandine. I rave about it to anyone I know expecting. Can’t rate it enough.
