Meet our Guest Contributors
With two young boys there are a number of areas relating to being a mum that I am able to share based on my own personal experience, but I want the ‘Dotty Journal’ to be much more than just my life experiences and journey through motherhood.
A Little Bit Dotty is about helping mums with gifts that will stimulate, soothe, relax and calm, just to name a few but in order to navigate the journey we also need information, resources, support and to know it’s not just us going through that particular ‘PHASE’.
So, from time to time I will be inviting guest contributors to share their professional insight on a number of topics such as baby massage, sleep regression, toddler tantrums, fussy eaters, how to take time out for yourself etc.
If you would like to be a guest contributor or you know someone else that might be interested, please do get in touch via email email@example.com.
Say hello to our contributors below:
