Are you in the throes of teething? I am, for the second time… sigh. He only has 2 at the moment but the top two are coming through at exactly the same time and they are driving both me and him mad!

Gummee Glove Review and Giveaway

Teething, it’s not the most fun of times, is it? It is definitely something that comes up time and time again on parenting advice pages, it is a sure-fire way of becoming more sleep deprived and it is a huge talking point when you meet up with your friends (parent friends, of course, although I am guilty of boring the non-parent ones on this topic too!)

I think that the one thing we all in common is that we Continue reading “Gummee Glove Review and Giveaway”

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!

Review: Teething Solutions with Amber Pumpkin

Teething has to be one of the worst parts of having a baby. It can begin from the moment they are born and last for three years, what other development stage lasts that long?! With the experience of having an early teether the first time around, I knew I would have my work cut out for me the second time around too. Four years have passed since Jake went through it all so I knew the teething remedy world would have moved on since then. So, I have been prepared. I have stocked up on the usual medicinal remedies and have been keeping my eye on the newest teether aids coming onto the market. And I was right, William is also an early teether, Continue reading “Review: Teething Solutions with Amber Pumpkin”

Teething: It’s Just as Bad The Second Time Around!

I may have previously mentioned my hate of teething in my blog posts… and in my book! I remember during Jake’s teething time, being immersed in this world of pain, sleepless nights, dribble, sickness and unhappiness (both of us) yet somehow, I blocked it out. It may have taken 2 years but I had finally left the teething stress behind. I guess it’s a bit like childbirth, isn’t it? They say women forget it quickly which is why they go on to have more children, otherwise, no one would! Well, I have hit that point with teething. It’s back, I had forgotten how bad it could be and it is all coming flooding back, urghhhhh… Continue reading “Teething: It’s Just as Bad The Second Time Around!”

DCby1 campaign, why getting your baby to a dentist is vital

DCby1 Campaign- Why Getting Your Baby to the Dentist is Vital

The DCby1 (dental check by one) Campaign was launched by the British Society of Paediatric Dentistry in September to encourage all babies to be taken to the dentist for their first dental check by the age of one. This is a campaign that I feel very strongly towards due to the research I uncovered whilst writing my book Your Teething Baby: from one parent to another. I was shocked to read from the NHS that one of the main causes for a child to be admitted to hospital is down to Continue reading “DCby1 Campaign- Why Getting Your Baby to the Dentist is Vital”
