There's a reason hit TV shows like Sex & The City, Friends and Seinfeld are so popular - they're all centered around the importance of friendship and how intrical they are to our livelihood. After Kel opened up about her own friendship breakdown earlier in the season, we were inundated with other Sh*tters sharing their own stories of friendship heartache. So in todays ep, we're unpacking this subject a little further and workshopping ways we can potentially avoid these 'breakups'. Then later in the ep, we have Sh*tter Anna joining us. Having no kids of her own yet, Anna offers up a unique perspective on how friendships can change when you're the 'single childless one' in a sea of people breeding & getting hitched. She also provides some exceptional advice on how to make sure those around you are feeling valued & heard.

Introducing Mrs Searles! In this ep we unpack Kee's big day, from the wedding car going up in flames to Kel's terrible advice to ditch the marquee, and everything in between. There's also a very special cameo from the groom himself, who describes his favourite moment of the day.

Milestones can cause pure panic for parents, especially first-timers. Designed as a guide to track whether a child's development is on track, the truth of it is they leave us feeling smug if the kid is miles ahead and like we’re failing if they’re nowhere near. In this ep, we breakdown the milestones that freaked us out the most & how we dealt with the pressure of 'the timeline'. Then later in the ep, we have a lovely Sh*tter, Beth joining us for a chat. Beth is a mother of 3 young boys (with another on the way!) who have each developed in very different ways, and on very different timelines. Beth discusses the approach she took for each kid and how she avoided the comparison game.

When it comes to feeding our babies there is so much information out there - when to wean off milk, when to introduce solids, what foods to stay away from... it can all be a bit much. So today we're discussing our approach to feeding our little ones, when we knew it was time to introduce new foods & how we stayed calm through the whole process. Then later in the ep, we chat to Sh*tter Gemma who's one of those people that when she does something, she'll do it perfectly. Gem unpacks the different approaches she took with her two young girls & why she changed things up the 2nd time round.

When we asked our Sh*tters what they wanted us to talk about on the pod, 'resentment' was one of the most highly requested topics. As it turns out, MANY of us can’t stand the person we had a child with and around 1 in 5 couples call it quits within the first 12 months of becoming parents. So today we're putting it all on the table - we chat through key moments that leave us feeling resentful and how we (try to) tackle resentment in a healthy way. Then later on, we chat to Sh*tter, Lauren who left her partner not long after bringing their baby boy home. Lauren talks us through what happened and when she knew it was time to leave.

Parenthood comes with a whole bunch of 'firsts' - first giggle, first night away from your baby, your first Christmas together. Most of them are beautiful, some of them are challenging and a few of them don't quite turn out the way you’d imagined. In this episode Kel and Kee break down some of the big 'first' moments with their bubs, how they got through them and what they’d do differently next time.

Friendships can move and change so much in that first year of motherhood, and sometimes the friends you had pre-baby quickly fall to the wayside. Today we're chatting about the importance of having a good crew around you, how to prioritise your friendships while juggling newborns and how to know if a mothers group is right for you. Then later in the ep, Kel opens up about a recent friendship heartbreak she experienced and the toll it took on her both physically and emotionally.

In this episode, hosts Kel & Kee unpack the important roles of the wider family, specifically for new parents. Kee opens up about her experience being estranged from her parents & having to navigate motherhood without a mother figure to look up to. Then later in the ep, we chat with Shitter from NZ, Elle Chrisp who opens up about the frustrations that come when parents live nearby, but are nowhere near as involved as you’d imagined.

Content Warning: This episode discusses themes that may be upsetting. We discuss postpartum depression and psychosis, suicidal ideation, overdose, severe mental health issues and disassociation. Listener discretion is advised. The postpartum period can be one of the most isolating and lonely times of someone's life. You've just grown and birthed an entire human, your hormones are all over the shop, and you're keeping your little one alive while sleep deprived and trying to remember the person you once were. It's often not a great recipe, yet we're still sold the idea of bliss being wrapped up in a 'newborn bubble'. In this episode of eat, sleep, sh*t, repeat, Kel and Kee discuss their own experiences with postpartum mental health and chat with someone whose experience led her to a psychiatric facility only weeks post-birth. This is an honest and raw conversation; let it remind you that you're never alone. If you or someone you know is in crisis and needs help now, call triple zero (000). You can also call Lifeline on 13 11 14 — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Newsflash, babies need to be fed. And the only thing you feed them for the first 4-6 months of their lives is milk. But it’s not as straightforward as society might have you believe. If you’re under the opinion that #breastisbest, you can leave now, because this podcast isn’t for you. We strongly believe that the only important thing is that your baby is actually getting fed, so whether that’s through breastfeeding, formula, mixed feeding or exclusively pumping, you’ve come to the right place. Your hosts Kel and Kee share their own experiences feeding their babies, then we hear from mum of 3, Sara, who had 3 wildly different feeding experiences.

Were you once a sexually ravenous beast but postpartum, the idea of intimacy makes you want to go through labour again? Or did your body change so much you feel disconnected from it? Maybe you’re hornier than ever but things aren’t working the way they used to? In today’s episode, Kel and Kee discuss sex with a vulnerable and open manner you won’t hear anywhere else.
