Encouraging Better Toddler Eating with Clever Grip Cutlery

 

As you will know from some of my Facebook posts, dinner time can be a real struggle in our household. Breakfast can go down a treat and can even last all morning, lunch is usually a healthy selection of finger foods which includes meat, cheese, fruit and so on but dinner time? That is a whole other ball game! Hot meals are not Jake’s favourite and trying new foods is a battle I have started to despise at 5pm. I’m not sure why this has occured but he has always been a very choky child and has always had issues with different textures so I think it has become a natural progression over the last couple of years.

How Much Coffee is Too Much Coffee?

If you are a coffee lover then you will know all about the wondrous powers of coffee and it is probably the one thing that you need to kick-start your day. However, you might find that you have started to love your coffee fix a little bit too much. Having too much coffee can result in sleep problems or even raised blood pressure. So it is important that you drink your coffee in moderation and try to mix it up a bit with other drinks throughout the day. Continue reading “How Much Coffee is Too Much Coffee?”

maternity wear

Maternity Wear: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

I have such a love-hate relationship with maternity wear. Don’t you find that there is such a gap in the market? We start to gain water and weight from before 12 weeks yet all the maternity wear is aimed at the size you are from around 7 months. Nothing fits from your normal wardrobe and you end up traipsing the shops for the very limited range of maternity clothes available to you. ‘Oh you can buy it online’ you hear time and time again but I don’t always want to buy online, I want to go into a shop, look at the sizes and try them on! And why are the styles mostly floaty, high necked, v-necked and with unflattering cut sleeves? Pregnant women are still the same people and even though their bodies change their tastes and fashion sense don’t; we want to feel like us as much as we can!

pregnancy and mum guilt

How Pregnancy Brings on a Whole New Wave of Mum Guilt

As if we need to feel more Mum guilt eh… Who’d have thought that pregnancy could bring on a whole new wave of it?! Well, it can and it has for me.

The first trimester wasn’t too bad. I was being physically sick and everyone could see the toll it was taking on me. I was off so many foods, I couldn’t keep much down and I could barely stay awake. Jake had twigged that I was pregnant before we even told him and he took on a good Continue reading “How Pregnancy Brings on a Whole New Wave of Mum Guilt”

Joie Commuter Travel Cot Review

With the imminent arrival of baby number two, we have been looking into the essential items that we need to purchase or replace. We do have a second-hand travel cot from Jake’s baby days but it has always been a tricky one to set up so I was eager to see what else was now available on the market. 

Kiddies Kingdom is your one-stop online shop for all things baby and child. I had a look through their wide range of Travel Cots for sale and was immediately drawn to Continue reading “Joie Commuter Travel Cot Review”

The Baby Show

The Baby Show Experience

On Sunday I was invited along to The Baby Show at London Olympia. When I was pregnant with Jake we didn’t do any of the big baby things; we didn’t go to NCT, we didn’t go to baby shows or expectant parent evenings and my general attitude was to take things as they came and learn on the job. This is fine to an extent but when it comes to gadgets, new products, items that will make your life easier, I had no clue which is why I was so excited to be able to attend a massive show like this one.

8 reasons to book an in-inclusive holiday

8 Reasons To Book An All-Inclusive Holiday

Prior to becoming a parent, myself and my other half would happily book a last minute holiday, booking all of our arrangements separately and working out where to eat and what to do once we arrived. This lead to us having a mixture of amazing holidays and also some disastrous ones… being scammed in Tunisia Continue reading “8 Reasons To Book An All-Inclusive Holiday”
