About Me


Welcome to my blog! My name is Tomi and I am so many things to different people and I recently became a mum. I work per-time with a Cloud computing firm in Lagos, contribute to a natural hair blog and work full time running a photography business with my husband.

The cuddle blog is a family lifestyle blog that was born out of the need to document and share my experience trying to get a hang of being a first time mum, Faith, parenting and working from home while remaining sane through it all.

I write about my experiences trying to bring beauty out of the chaos and my journey to learning to balance these responsibilities. I do this as a coping mechanism for myself and to connect with other mums with similar experiences because no matter how we look at it, we mums need all the support we can get.

I started going to this new hospital and because of my height it was recommended to do a pelvis examination. This is not done routinely but from a certain height they recommend this scan so they can know what they're working with. 
This was the timeline. I went in for my regular appointment on a Friday, I was asked to do the CT Pelvimetry scan the next Friday before I came for my appointment which I did. I gave…

Pregnancy Diary 4: 3rd Trimester || The Cuddle Blog

"Feb 9th, 2017 - 33 Weeks 
Wow, it's just amazing how it felt so far but right not, it's here. We have just 7 weeks to go and honestly, it's getting more difficult by the day as everywhere hurts. Lower abdomen, tight tummy, really everything... walking, bending... SIGH
I'm just trying to keep  a positive outlook and attitude towards everything. The last doctors appointment was indicating that you are not in the right position yet, so I have been bouncing on the birthing ball and rolling on it as I hear it help encourage babies to turn. I am trusting God that it will all workout. I will know by next week"

Out of body Mumsperience || The Cuddle Blog

"Mumsperience"?

Yes! I just coined the word.

It is every experience unique to Mums! 
I had an out of body experience. Oh No! I had an out of body Mumsperience. It was less then one month after I had Cuddles and he was on a 2 hours eat-sleep schedule. He woke up sometime in the middle of the night this fateful day and He started crying, I picked him up and just kept rocking him but he just won't stop crying. I was beginning to wonder what could be wrong with him when my husband woke up and asked me
