Talking About Sleep With Arla Big Milk #BigSteps

I am beginning to think I should be editing the caption of my blog to “A Blog From The Heart Of A Sleep Deprived Mum” because quite frankly, that’s all I seem to be blogging about lately. Sleep is a sore subject for me and that’s due to the lack of it. When I read back on when P1 was …

Why Do Babies Cry?

Babies: For newborns, crying is their main way of communicating. Toddlers: Toddlers cry because they’re hungry, tired, uncomfortable or need affection – just like babies. Preschoolers and school-age children: Children tend to cry less as they get older. Once they can talk, it’s much easier for them to tell you why they’re upset and what they need. Why do we …

“The reality is I’ve been in my onesie all day sitting on the sofa”

Although I’m posting this today, Tuesday, I’m actually writing it yesterday. Confusing but I wanted to publish this yesterday but the video which is hopefully now below took literally all day to load to my computer. Blooming technology. As I’m writing this there’s a faint sound of snoring, I can hear Hubby downstairs watching YouTube videos and I’m sinking into …

“I am beginning to ask myself why she doesn’t sleep yet”

With a certain somebody headed quite quickly towards her third birthday I am beginning to ask myself why she doesn’t sleep yet. I have a nearly 11 month old who sleeps in the cot peacefully until morning, only really stirring when we go to bed or when her older sister shouts for me in the night. I wonder if P3 …

Moving From Cot To Big Bed

When we moved P2 out of her cot and into a “big bed” we went about it completely the wrong way. When we found out about P3s impending arrival I panicked. We needed the cot that P2 inhabited for the new baby and we needed to do that before the new baby arrived so being the hormonal pregnant person I …

Mattress Next Day Essentials V40 1 Topper Review

I never had a topper until I met my Hubby and he refused to get rid of his horrid, old, discoloured one for so long. Thankfully my MiL came along and saved the day by buying us a brand new, luxury bed topper so we sleep in pure heaven. Sleep is something all parents moan and groan, some have the luxury …

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 …

Toddler Night Terrors

If you are a regular reader you’ll know that P2 has never been very good with sleep. Right from the very beginning up until recently she has woke on average 3 times a night but since turning two things certainly looked on the up. She had been sleeping through more often than not, if she did wake it would be …

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 …

Bedtime – Winter vs Spring

It’s 9:30pm and I’m tucked up in bed. I’m exhausted and have had enough. For nearly four weeks, the clever ones will realise this was the clocks going forward, my evenings have been sucked away into the oblivion. Rewind a week before the clocks and I had finally gained a child free moment of the day to blog, to watch …

Green Sheep Baby Twist Natural Latex Cot Bed Mattress Review

Nearly a year ago P2 abandoned her cotbed and made the transition to a mattress on the floor. That sounds so awful and she’s still there but it has prevented her falling out of the bed which is great. Since then the cot has been a dumping ground, in fact it was stacked higher than me of bin bags with …
