The one downside to nursing Arthur is that it’s quite difficult to keep Betsy entertained at the same time. Mindful that there is only so much Charlie and Lola and Peppa Pig that we can watch, I put together a little bag of activities that Betsy and I can do together while I was feeding. A fun bag while using fun bags so to speak.

In theory, these things are only too be used while I’m nursing to keep their specialness (we’ll see how long that lasts), so we have a notebook for drawing, a colouring in book, crayons, a Peppa Pig magazine and book, a pair of scissors (child safe ones, obviously, Betsy’s been mad keen on these, cutting up random pieces of paper, a copy of The Snail and the Whale and a pack of balloons. If these things don’t keep Betsy happy and entertained I don’t know what will!*

*Actually I do, the Duplo games on my phone. Brilliant entertainment.
