Welcome to Ariel’s World Blog

This blog is about my journey though life as a working mum of a beautiful daughter who happens to have Down Syndrome. Raylene x

I recently was sent a sample pack of Baby Love nappy pants to try. I haven't tried an nappy pant before as Ariel hasn't been big enough. She is entering into toddlerhood so it was good timing.   Baby Love nappy pants are for boys and girls 9-14kg....

Estimated reading time 9 and a half minutes. One of the first thoughts to cross my mind after Ariel was diagnosed with Down Syndrome was "I am probably going to get post natal depression now".  Thankfully, I didn't. This is not to say I haven't had...

Estimated reading time 2 and a half minutes. Ariel has had a great start to the year. She is commando crawling and is starting to 4 point crawl a bit. BIG for us as we didn't think she would crawl before her first birthday. I learnt a lot about myself and others...

Estimated reading time 6 minutes. I thought for my first blog of the year I would do an A-Z of me so you can get to know me a little better. A is for Anxiety. I have suffered from mild anxiety for most of my life. Prior to...

Estimated reading time 1.5 minutes 2014 was the year of a defining moment, the birth of my daughter Ariel, who is the pivotal person that changed my life. What some people might think is their worst nightmare has proven to be my dream come true. I see...

Estimated reading time 7.5 minutes. Firstly, I would like to say that I am breastfeeding Ariel. I was determined to breastfeed and suffered for the cause. I am so glad I persevered. Breastfeeding is excellent for many reasons. I will try and breastfeed for 2 years to...

Estimated reading time including watching a video. 4 minutes Time is flying and things are always changing and we are all growing -  Ariel, like all babies do, and Joe and I as people. I never expected to be attending weekly mothers group meetings with my child who has...
