How We’ve Been Making Positive Eco-friendly Changes

A little while ago I wrote about 5 changes I was planning on making to be more eco-friendly; do away with clingfilm, buy a compost bin, grow our own, switch to reusable nappies and reusable sanitary towels. At the time I had the idea but I must admit that what with being a parent of two now, being tired most of the time and being quite stuck in my ways, I felt a little hesitant and apprehensive. It’s daft how we all get so Continue reading “How We’ve Been Making Positive Eco-friendly Changes”

How Different Breastfeeding Positions Can Help with Feeding Your Baby

When it comes to breastfeeding, most of us automatically picture a woman cradling her baby across her body to feed.

Why Support in Breastfeeding is Essential in Improving our Rates

Breastfeeding, love it or hate it, do it or don’t, argue online or really don’t see the point in the debate, no matter what your stance is it always gets a rise doesn’t it?

Gummee Glove Review and Giveaway

Teething, it’s not the most fun of times, is it?

What’s in my Teething Essentials Kit?

You may have noticed by now that I have a big bugbear… it’s teething! From the moment my first son began until his last molar eventually erupted, I despaired. The pain, the crying, the endless symptoms, the sleepless nights, all for 20 little teeth which will fall out anyway! I’ve enjoyed having the break from it all these last couple of years but now the second one is suffering just as badly and I have found myself immersed back in the world of teething and remembering exactly why I wrote my book in the first place!

Well, luckily for us, Wicked Uncle asked my biggest kid (yep, the hubby) to review some of their products from their brand new range, Big Kidz.
