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 mummytodex@gmail.com

    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 https://www.nih.gov/news-events/news-releases/nih-sponsored-expert-panel-issues-clinical-guidelines-prevent-peanut-allergy (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+ http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/pregnancy-and-baby/pages/foods-to-avoid-baby.aspx

    This is the most recent piece of research o could find on the subject http://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/article-abstract/2553447

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