The People Behind Mummy to Dex

My name is Nicola and I am the blogger behind Mummy to Dex. I am Mummy to my two year old Dexter James and I am expecting our second child in December 2018. I live in West Lancashire with my husband in our forever home which we recently purchased as first time buyers. I have been blogging since the end of September 2016 and also work full time in retail and sales management. I am still finding my own way of continuing to blog, commuting, working and raising my toddler in a gentle environment.

The purpose of Mummy to Dex is to share my experiences as a new mum following the principles of baby-led parenting. We introduced Dexter to food using baby-led weaning and I have loved sharing my recipes with my readers. I write about lots of other stuff too, from reviews of our favourite baby/toddler purchases, to my opinions on current affairs and monthly updates on how Dex is progressing and what we have been up to. 

I hope you enjoy reading what I’ve written. I love to read your comments so please leave me one or you can email me if you prefer at

    One question – ur LO is eight months old and he eats peanut butter? I thought Babis under 1 or 2 are not supposed to eat nuts?

    Hi Kelly,

    Thanks for reading and I’m glad you enjoy the blog.

    Whole nuts should be avoided as they are a choking hazard (similar to grapes and popcorn) however as an allergen risk, peanut butter is now recommended to be given to babies.

    Check out this link from the NIH (I presume you are in the US?)

    This link from the NHS (UK) explains again how whole nuts should be avoided but ground peanuts etc are fine from 6m+

    This is the most recent piece of research o could find on the subject

    Thanks again for reading and I hope the above articles help.
