Green Pomelo – Minky Baby Pink Cloth Nappy Review

So there’s a positive line on the pregnancy test. You’re having a baby! Now it’s time to start getting excited and buying lots of bits for your new arrival. I bet the majority of you naturally thought about all the nappies you’d have to stock up on. The first ever disposable nappy was invented in 1948. A baby will use …

Walkers Hoops & Crosses Review

I unexpectedly received a parcel in the post yesterday morning. Inside contained a monkey holding a packet of crisps. I’ve been chosen, along with many other parent bloggers, to review Walkers Hoops and Crosses crisps. Both the girls absolutely love the monkey. Not surprising really, it’s beautiful. As for the crisps; well we were sent the Roast Beef flavour. Which …

Cherish and Cherubs Personalised Letter Train Review

I can’t wait to own our first family home. To have somewhere I can put my own stamp on, redecorating and choosing furniture. It’s exciting! I definitely want to focus on decorating the girls room first. Making it all girlie, and I don’t mean only pinks! I’d love to put up those personalised pictures with their names and have pretty …

Baby Rug – Bug In A Rug Review

I was sent a special baby blanket from Baby Rug this week. I was uber excited to get using it. The weather has been really wonderful so this week we have been quite busy, giving me ample time to test the product out I was a bit concerned that the fleece type material would be too hot for P2 to wear …

Fisher-Price Woodsy Friends Comfy Time Bouncer Review

I jumped at the chance of reviewing a Fisher-Price bouncer! With P1 I always found it such a struggle to find a bouncer that suited her needs – she was fussy! A basic, cheap bouncer didn’t settle her. A swinging one with music didn’t settle her. One that went from side to side, music and vibrations also, didn’t settle her. …

Cracked And Sore

Three days of breastfeeding my nipples became very cracked and sore. Every time P2 latched I’d wince in pain and suffer the whole feed just wondering how long I could cope with this before I was forced to give up. On day four, we visited my MiL and she suggested a nipple cream and that although expensive, Lansinoh was a great product. …

Sock Ons Review

I’ve lost count of the amount of socks I’ve lost during P1s life. So many times I’ve looked at her to find one foot absolutely freezing and the other nice and snug, that missing sock never to be found again. There’s definitely a sock monster lurking. One day when out shopping my mum found a new little invention called Sock Ons. At first …

Storing Made Simple – Review 8

Lansinoh is a brand made for breastfeeding mums. Currently I’ve used three of their products. But I’m going to talk about their Storage Bags for expressed milk. Whilst P1 was in Special Care I expressed milk. Our fridge and freezer was packed full of bottles of my milk – so was the hospitals! We had little room for anything else. …

Baby Wearing – Review 7

I’ve grown to learn that P2 is a baby who just loves mummy snuggles. This isn’t such a bad thing as an overall… But it’s becoming difficult with the life we have. Unfortunately I don’t have the time to just sit around anymore and cuddle. That upsets me. But P1 needs her mummy too and there’s housework that needs to …

Downsizing – Review 6

This post is for the ladies amongst my readers. Men you may be interested I suppose. Sanitary pads … In my opinion the most annoying thing ever. Ok not as annoying as the brick-like maternity pads you pretty much HAVE to wear as there isn’t anything else up to the job. In normal circumstances I will always choose tampons over …

Toby Toby Toby – Review 4

We took some time out last night. Couple time. I’m so lucky to have wonderful parents who don’t need much notice to babysit – it probably makes it a lot easier because we live together at the moment. Anyway, we took a trip to my favourite restaurant ever! Toby Carvery. My favourite food is a roast so with me being …

Non-Contact Thermometer – Review 3

When I was pregnant with P1 I always went to The Baby Show – I went to both the London ones and absolutely loved it. This pregnancy I dragged my OH and P1 to London to spend some monies. It definitely didn’t fail once again although my OH looked pretty fed up with being bombarded with information on babies by …

Shrinkles – Review 2

My mum bought P1 something I’ve never heard of: Shrinkles for £8.49 yesterday. P1 spotted the bag within seconds of my mum walking through the door. Beady eyes.   It’s basically special plastic paper that shrinks in the oven. P1 loves colouring so she was very excited to get started. You colour, you cut out, you put on foil, put …

I’m Casually Munching Coins – Review 1

My body always seems to have a problem with iron. For as long as I can remember I’ve been anaemic. Add pregnancy to the mix and I have a problem. At first they gave me iron tablets to take. Anyone who takes iron tablets know that they don’t tend to play nice with your bowels. Gross! So they suggested taking …
