It’s definitely a hot one out there! And doesn’t sun seems to make everything look and feel better. So what better time for an overhaul?
My own ‘revamp’ took the form of wearing a smidgen of face powder and actually putting on some mascara this morning. Oooh, and I wore a necklace too. (Something I’ve been unable to do since BF was born due to those little grabbing baby/toddler hands.)
But I’m sure you’ll agree that the Contented Calf website’s (www.contentedcalf.com) revamp is somewhat more stunning!! Thanks to Hannah Minney and Jon Harvey and all their hard work, I think the new site is wonderful. As well as the gorgeous new design, make sure you check out the recipe section, where you can get a sneak peak of five recipes from The Contented Calf Cookbook to tempt your taste buds. And this brings me to the cookbook itself. I’m very proud to introduce you to The Contented Calf Cookbook: Nourishing Recipes For Breastfeeding Mums. Inspired by a friend’s quest to improve her milk supply, discovery of lactogenic foods and my own experience of cooking and freezing meals ahead of the birth of my daughter, Jassy Davis and I have created this unique recipe book using lactogenic ingredients.
I am very excited and proud about the launch of the new website and hope to share all our news, updates and offers with you as we develop our product range. Over the coming weeks and months we’ll be sure to keep you updated on what’s in the pipeline! So stay tuned. But for now look around the site, enjoy our blog, become a fan on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.
There’s been a lot going on at Contented Calf Central! Read on to find out what we’ve been up to:

I expect you’re all on tenterhooks wondering how our weekend away went? Did we get any sleep? Had our Tent Trials done the trick?
So where did we leave it? Day Ten (Sunday night into Monday morning) – all was going well.

I was not looking forward to Thursday (Day Six). The Babe has a tendency to breath-hold after massive screaming session or a big shock. Although we’re pretty confident it’s behavioural, though unintential rather than deliberate, the doctor (and of course ourselves) wanted to check to see if it was epilepsy-related. Initial tests came back clear. But just to be on the safe side, we were booked in for a sleep-deprived EEG. Instructions were to get the Babe up at 5:00am, but not let her sleep at all until her 10:45 appointment, despite a 45 minute car ride. A challenge!?? I think so!!!
How did we get on? And how did that affect the trials? Find out more:
I’m internally screaming “I’m about to jinx it! I’m about to jinx it! I’m about to jinx it!” as I type, but I’m typing regardless…
Day Five and I think we’ve cracked sleeping in ‘The Tent’.
