If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that we went to Camp Bestival in Dorset. You’ll know because I’ve been banging on endlessly about it and spamming non-stop with photos 🙊 Now, I’m quite aware that the photos I’ve posted make it look like we had THE most amazing experience… However, this is an example of one of those times when the reality is quite different to the carefully selected Instagram snapshots 🙈 It was all quite a bit trickier than it looked, mainly because we are complete novices! At camping full stop – never mind with toddlers in tow! I thought I’d share what we learned in case it’s useful for anyone. So here are my tips for taking toddlers to festivals!
When the twigs were smaller, I once had a lady say to me that the reason they got chicken pox was because I didn’t breastfeed them. Struggling to breastfeed my twins when they were first born had been a deeply painful and upsetting experience for me. So I’ll be honest, what she said really hurt.
I’ve seen this issue crop up a fair bit on social media recently so I thought I’d address it. Is moaning about motherhood helpful sometimes? Or is it just unnecessary negativity?
