Making the Kitchen Child-Friendly

More accidents happen in kitchens than any other room in the home, and many of them involve small children. Take a look around your kitchen and find ways of making this less likely to happen in your home. This does not mean you have to compromise on style or the use of your kitchen, it just means some careful planning and common sense is needed. Continue reading “Making the Kitchen Child-Friendly”

Little Drop in The Ocean Eco-Clothing: A Review

How to Help Your Child Cope with Having a Sibling in NICU

I was recently contacted by a Mother asking me if I had written a post on how to help your child cope with having their sibling in NICU. I hadn’t even thought about this as a blog topic but also couldn’t believe I had overlooked it! Through the emotions, the tiredness, the back and forth to the hospital, I had constantly thought about our baby and writing about his journey yet the other superstar hasn’t had a mention, and he definitely deserves one.  Continue reading “How to Help Your Child Cope with Having a Sibling in NICU”

Taking our first steps with Dotty Fish, a review

Review: Taking Our First Steps With Dotty Fish

As an ex-shoe shop manager, I have a thing about shoes. For starters, I love them! I have always owned far too many (much to the husband’s dismay) and I have always been drawn to great quality over cheap, throwaway items and gorgeous designs will get me every time. So, when my first child, Jake, began to walk it was inevitable that I would want well-fitting shoes, which would protect his feet, allow for growth and last. I am an advocate of good foot health and ensuring that your child’s feet are well-looked after from day one which is why he has never been put in anything that may jeopardise this.

My Name Tags Review and Giveaway!

School is fast approaching (sob) and we have been very busy these last few weeks with school rhyme time sessions, parents evenings, planning our route and preparing Jake for leaving his preschool friends and making new ones. I think he’s fine… it’s Mummy who’s not! One of my biggest mental hurdles I need to overcome is the idea of doing a school run 5 days a week, we can just about manage 3 at the moment and with William trying to get moving it could be a bit of a juggle come September! However, I need to get my organisational head on Continue reading “My Name Tags Review and Giveaway!”

All in One Cloth Nappies- everything you need

You would have read in my last post that we are making the move over to cloth nappies. This is for quite a few reasons but the most important being the fact that they are eco-friendly and they will be saving us money in the long-run… up to £500 a year did you know?! We are starting with the all in one cloth nappies but I know there are other versions available and there is a lot for me to still find out but for now, I am going with what seems to be the easiest option.
