Baby vs Blogging

Hi, my lovelies!

I bet you've all forgotten about me by now. I mean, let's face it, I've kind of fallen off the face of the planet when it comes to blogging regularly.
I've noticed my views plummeting and it's really made me upset that I haven't been able to put more effort into what I love. But since becoming a Mummy, it's sooooo much harder than I thought it would be.

Scout is brilliant. He's fourteen weeks old today and I hope to get our three month postpartum update done this week. (I've said that for the past two weeks.) Thankfully as he's getting bigger, I'm finding more time in the day to do little, and I mean little, bits around the house. I no longer have to hold or nurse him for what seems like every hour of the day; and the washing up is finally done when it should be.
That being said, I do not have time to write during the day. Unfortunately, he's not yet napping in his cot, and this means that I can't to my desk to do so. He also has some kind of super power in which he wakes up the second I can pick up my laptop.

I'm currently trying really hard to find a blog/baby balance, but I'm finding it extremely hard. Liam works during the week and we don't live near any family or friends who could watch Scout for a while. My free time is either ridiculously early in the morning, before Scout wakes up. I'm talking five am, a time I cannot seem to get myself out of bed at, or in the evening after he's gone down.
Now, here's my issue.
Because I have both the blog and my two youtube channels, I have to decided what I can get done and when. For the past few weeks youtube has kind of taken that time. I find filming a video and editing takes far less time than taking photos, cropping and sorting through them, and writing a blog post.

I'm thinking I may drop one of my three weekly videos down to two at some point in the near future, but I'm really hoping I can sort out some kind of schedule so I don't have to do that.
I really do hope that I can get back to the WFF blog on a more regular basis. I have so many ideas for posts, and I just want to share them with you.

If you're ready this and are yourself a blogging/youtubing parent who has very little time, please do let me know what your magic secret is. I miss it so much and if I'm honest, I'm getting a little jealous seeing so many peoples blogs grow, yet mine is just festering in it's old posts.

  1. Apart from breast feeding, I was similar to you, no one to watch baby/free time.. but I can say, there IS a light at the end of the tunnel!
    J has always napped in his basket or cot, sometimes on me, but that's only when I want snuggles.lol My only advice is to make changes and set a routine and plan now.. as I know so many mums what have struggle with certain aspects due to not. Routine for bed time, routine for bath nights. They easily pick up on stuff. If J has a bad night and I bring him down stairs, I don't put any lights on, I keep it dark and I don't play with him or really entertain him.. I make him know it's quiet/bed time.
    But, each to their own. J was in a cot from 3-4 months I think, as outgrew basket and was wiggling too much during the night. J was also bottle fed, so was easier to time feeds etc.. Ask for help when your Mr's home. Yes, they go to work, but Scout if your full time job and it's a lot more draining. At least he gets time away and out of the house.. you don't. I'd also say to get out and about and join your local centre and meet other mummies. Don't become a recluse.
    Just do what you can with what time you have. A little here a little there, no one expects you to be super mum! But once he's in his own cot/bed for naps etc, you've got better chance of having time for at least a brew to yourself.lol
