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.

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”

SpeedBump Maternity Activewear Review

Staying fit and healthy during this pregnancy was something I had decided upon even before I fell with this little guy. I wouldn’t say that my first pregnancy was unhealthy but I wasn’t partaking in any exercise classes and I really did use being pregnant as an excuse to take things easy. This all changed after he was born and I have been actively going to workout classes since Jake was about a year old so my fitness and strength have both increased in the last 3 years. This has meant that since finding out I was expecting with baby number 2 I haven’t had to alter my usual workouts of using kettlebells, Barbells, Bulgarian bags, TRX and other activities within my HIIT classes because my body is used to the level I have been working at. However, as my shape began to Continue reading “SpeedBump Maternity Activewear Review”

dinosaur world

Review: Dinosaur World at The Anvil

Jake is a huge dinosaur fan, so when Anvil Arts invited us along to review the new show Dinosaur World we jumped at the chance. The show is suitable from the age of three and runs for 50 minutes with no interval, which works out well. With this being our third theatre show of the year we have started to learn how long Jake can hold his attention for and anything over an hour has him wriggling in his seat. However, this show is completely different from your usual one. The lights remain up through most of it and photos are permitted throughout which is a nice change.

The show is performed by Miranda who tells her story of how she came to live on an island inhabited by dinosaurs. She grew up around them and learnt all she could Continue reading “Review: Dinosaur World at The Anvil”

Review: Beeutiful Skincare

I was fortunate enough to meet Carly from Beeutiful at a networking event for local businesses. After giving an informative talk on all that she has achieved in the last 5 years we had the opportunity to view and purchase the products she makes from home. All products have been individually created by Carly and have honey as their main ingredient. This honey comes directly from her own hives and she ensures that nothing goes to waste and, more importantly, Continue reading “Review: Beeutiful Skincare”

Review: Life’s Little Bugs

As soon as I heard of the concept of the Life’s Little Bugs books I just knew they were right up our street and was over the moon when Tina, the author, asked me to review a set. She has brought together education with fun rhyming stories to teach children the importance of looking after themselves, one another and the environment. There are 7 books in the series and each has been entirely Continue reading “Review: Life’s Little Bugs”
