Spring is most definitely in the air. The trees are blossoming, the lawn has had its first mow of the year and the clocks spring forward on Sunday. We associate spring with new life; a short drive out of any town and you’ll soon come across fields full of lambs.
There’s something quite magical about bringing a new life into the world in the spring or summer, for a start the house isn’t cold when you have to get up at 3am to do night feeds! Little bodies don’t need to be wrestled into fiddly coats to leave the house, a baby gro and a soft blanket is all that’s required.
On warm summer evenings you can take your baby on gentle walks, even popping into a beer garden for a quick drink with your partner. Then there are picnics with new mummy friends, simply finding a shaded tree to sit against to feed your baby whilst watching the world go by.
Yes, there is the wonderful feeling of new life arriving all around us, now that’s enough to put a spring in our step.
