How Does Your Baby Self Settle?

At two years old, P2 is still waking in the night demanding milk on average twice a night. We’ve begun the “weaning” as such by reducing her intake during the day. She’s now limited to a cup in the mornings, not a bottle, and one 9oz bottle at night. I’m confident that she’s getting enough calcium as she’s having plenty …

Previous months we have shipped P3 to my MiL for some child free time to have a meal …

Parragon Book Buddies – Growl With The Animals Review

When I arrived for my first ever BritMums Live in 2014 I was completely overwhelmed by it all. Then when I saw the Parragon stall with ginormous cupcakes (I was pregnant with P3 at the time) I started to feel much more comfortable. I’ve always been a lover of books and with technology taking over our lives I still want my …

I’m a Babymoov Blog Ambassador 2015

Just a quick post as I want to introduce to you a wonderful company, Babymoov. A few months ago I’ll ashamedly hold my hands up and say I’d never heard of them. I have absolutely no idea how I haven’t because they’ve been around for 18 years! But now I am a blog ambassador for 2015. The company was set …

Outfits of a Petite Mum

I suppose it was so typical of me to fall in love with a 6ft man being only 4ft 7 and a bit (The bit being important). When I first met him my fashion sense was pretty boring and I wore some hideous brown “ugg” type boots. I’m quite surprised that Hubby fell in love with me but thankfully he …

5 Tips for Making the Most of Your Money

I have never been good with money. In fact I’ve been quite disastrous. I was in debt when I met my Hubby. I had car finance, missed phone bills and a credit card. Over the past three years of being with Hubby I’ve learnt a lot about money. Just by watching him I’ve learnt so much, listening to his many …

Cosatto Story Cotbed Owlet Review

 I was literally jumping off the walls when I was given the opportunity to review the Cosatto Story Cotbed Owlet. At first I was a little worried about the colour as I am very much a person who loves to have my daughters in pink or having pink belongings when we can. When the cot arrived I instantly changed my …

Turtle Mats Country Living Duck Review

We have one of those doors that opens straight into our living room. It is certainly not an ideal situation when you have three children in the household crawling around near the door, near the germs from our shoes and visitors shoes that come. We did have a tiny door mat which was doing part of its job but it …
