Popper or Velcro Cloth Nappies?

The popularity of cloth nappies is clearly growing and for me, this is a great sign! I love seeing more parents showing off their latest prints, their babies fluff bums and yelling at the top of their voices about helping the planet. It is such a step in the right direction. Of course, with this new interest comes plenty of questions and those questions are always good. Never ever think that a cloth nappy question is stupid because if you are asking it, you have a reason for that and if one person can answer it quickly and easily for you, that may help to keep you on the cloth nappy path and prevent you from reverting back to disposables. I’ve answered a lot of the usual questions in this blog post here (washing, myths, costs etc) but this post is going to cover whether you should you go for popper or velcro cloth nappies.

Bringing The Disney Magic Home With shopDisney

*Gifted Products from shopDisney feature in this blog post. As always, all opinions are my own.

This year we were so, so lucky to be able to have the opportunity to not only take a holiday in Florida but to also visit Disney World for the very first time. It was a lifelong dream of mine and that Disney Magic did not let me down. I absolutely loved it and could have easily chosen every Disney plush toy to bring home with me but unfortunately, that wasn’t possible, so you can imagine my pure excitement when shopDisney got in touch to ask if we (and when I say we I mean the kids but I secretly knew they meant me too!) wanted to review some of their fantastic merchandise.

Using Cloth Nappies on Holiday

When it comes to using cloth nappies, I use them full-time so when I go on holiday I don’t see why that would change. For me, this is my routine. William wears cloth nappies, not disposables and so far, each of my holidays or trips has allowed for that to continue. Here’s how I use cloth nappies whilst on holiday… Continue reading “Using Cloth Nappies on Holiday”

supporting Alder Hey children's charity- Daniel's story

Supporting Alder Hey Children’s Charity – Daniel’s Story

*Collaborative Post

As you will know, raising money and awareness for charity is very close to my heart. Having taken part in many a sponsored run for both Cancer Research and Bliss I know from personal experience how much that money will be valued by the charities and the people involved and/or affected. There are so many amazing causes out there and each and every one of us will have a particular charity that we support but as parents, I am sure that we are all drawn towards those which involve children.

Review | Finding Local Childcare With Childcare.co.uk

*AD

It’s come to that time in our lives where we need to start thinking about the possibility of childcare for William. He is almost 2 now and come next year we will be looking into pre-schools but just recently I have been wondering if he needs a nursery setting sooner? He is a very active little boy and with my workload increasing, I am constantly trying to juggle a lot and seem to be working every evening now due to my days being filled with activities with him. Finding childcare seems like a sensible option but I wasn’t too sure where to start… But then Childcare.co.uk got in touch to tell me about their website.

What It’s Like Giving Up Breastfeeding At 2 Years

This is a post I didn’t ever think I would be able to sit and write. 2 years? I almost made it to 2 years of breastfeeding! I cannot believe this journey turned out to be this long and I also cannot believe where 2 years has gone! After that difficult pregnancy, his premature start and all that pumping (urgh) I didn’t know how long I would breastfeed for and at the very start, I didn’t know if it would happen at all. Anyway, we got there and if you wanted to read about that I have a blog on prematurity and breastfeeding which covers what happened. 

But here I am, two weeks on from giving up on this stage in his life Continue reading “What It’s Like Giving Up Breastfeeding At 2 Years”

Review | Colour Chameleon Game From Jumbo

*Gifted Product, Amazon affiliate links

I recently attended a blogging conference where I was fortunate enough to speak to lots of different brands and see some of their new products that are coming or have just come to market. One brand which I have previously worked with, Jumbo Games, was there and as I am a big fan of getting my children into playing games and away from the electronics, I am always eager to see what they have come up with. They did not disappoint! As soon as I mentioned that my blog had taken more of an eco angle, the PR was right on it and he presented me with this beautiful collection of games in cardboard boxes. I may have got a little excited at just the boxes! You see, the boxes are made from 100% recycled materials… Continue reading “Review | Colour Chameleon Game From Jumbo”
