The Kiwi Burrow (NZ BnBers!)


Hello fellow Kiwis!

There seems to be a few of us out there, so I thought that I would dig out a cosy little nest for us all to huddle up in on this chilly night!

Wannabe Kiwis welcome too!

Hello all, and welcome! I've just woken up to a very chilly, rainy morning... Fortunately I am burrowed down under the duvet while OH is up with LO (and I can hear him doing the dishes, bless him). What's everyone up to today?

Morning we had an average day, oh was off since he worked Sat. Its his day off so he lazes about, i went to a bf baby group in the morning, went supermarket shopping and have done washing in the afternoon. Chloe is in bed and I am contemplating running a bath!

Ah, you have a seven-month appointment, I just had my nine-month one yesterday. If they haven't given you a bathmat, ask for one, they're great!!

What's your baby's sleep pattern? If it helps, my baby has been a shocking sleeper since four months but is coming right and doing longer stretches/dropping night feeds all of his own accord without any changes from me.

Haha yep I have called the hv here a plunket nurse before and people look at me like I have gone mad! speaking of which...I'm trying to think of ways to pass on my kiwi heritage to Chloe since it looks like we won't ever move back to NZ. Oh is Irish and will not budge. At the moment she is small so we read hairy mclairy books, and I sing her songs that I remember from school, and I use words like gumboots and puku, but I don't feel like its enough. Any ideas for me??

Ah, didn't read your post until after the visit or I defintley would have requested said bathmat! His sleeping is awful, in the night he is up every two hours like clockwork...am too exhausted to continue like this. She has referred me to Mothercraft which is a place in Hamilton where you stay there with baby monday till friday and they help you. A last resort but feel happy to have some kind of plan in place..
