I am beyond proud of what we’ve achieved with CJ’s Mission so far, but I felt deep down something bigger still had to come. Real change HAS to be made. So I’ve made CJ’s Mission a bit more of an actual thing. CJ’s Mission is now a nonprofit organisation with a purpose of supporting, empowering, … Continue reading C’s Mission
Having a short gut baby means regular loose bowel movements are normal, sometimes restricting, often requiring extra considerations and planning. But for us gastroenteritis is a whole new level. Through diet and loperamide we'd managed to get Clara's stools somewhat under control.
