The Results – JOHNSON’S 3 Steps To Better Sleep

Two weeks ago we embarked on a journey that was hopefully going to change our lives for the better. JOHNSON‘s had asked us to take 3 steps at bedtime; bath, massage and quiet time using their Bedtime bath products. We were asked to do this routine every night to improve P3s sleep. I was very anxious when starting this new …

JOHNSON’S 3 Steps To Better Sleep

If you are a long term reader of my blog you will know that sleep is not my best friend. I had 19 months of broken sleep with P2 before we introduced P3 to the mix and it now equals to 3 years of broken sleep. So my experience of sleep certainly hasn’t been a good one and when JOHNSON’S …

“I had made the definite decision not to cosleep with P3”

Cosleeping with P2 was not a conscious decision that we’d made. It just happened and we managed to get more sleep despite having a leg in our ribs or our eyes getting poked out. We coslept for around a year on and off. Although it worked for us, I had made the definite decision not to cosleep with P3 under …

“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 …

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 …

The Gro Company Bunny & Brolly GroBag Review

We are not strangers to The Gro Company. In fact both my girls have used them at some point for something. P1 & P2 both have the GroAnywhere Blind attached to their window to stop the bright evenings from disrupting bedtime too much. With P2 & P3 born in different seasons that means that at 7 months with P2 she …

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 …

Co-Sleeping With My Third Baby

As a parent, we want what is best for our children. Of course we do. How we parent is largely influenced by our own upbringings and more nowadays by the internet. We have the input of every medically-trained professional under the sun telling us what is right and what is wrong. Ultimately, as a parent we know our children more …

A Fear Of Darkness

Our day started slow. After having a night of P2 waking every hour I’d decided to laze in bed for a few hours whilst the girls played and watched a film. I knew I needed to get a doctors appointment for P1 and myself – P1 has had a few lumpy scabs appear on her scalp and I was pretty …

Nabby Baby Monitor Review

As a parent, safety is very high on the list of priorities. Whether it’s preventing cuts and grazes, making sure they look before they cross the road and making sure they are safe in every environment. My biggest fear is when I’m not around and I have zero control over their safety. Night times to be precise. I wasn’t as …

Kiddicare Sleep Dairy Project – Part 2

During February I was asked to write a sleep diary for Kiddicare. Along with other mums/dads they wanted to study various baby’s sleep patterns. I really enjoyed seeing just how much sleep I got and how much P2 did too! At the time, P2 was having her pretty awful stage of sleep and it’s still not much better from then. …

Kiddicare Sleep Diary Project – Part 1

We were asked to participate in Kiddicare‘s Sleep project on mums and babies up to the age of 18months. We were asked to document the amount of sleep P2 and I had over 31 days. We started our diary on 1st February so it’s now been 19 days. I’m surprised that I’ve remembered to write in each day actually but …

Infasense Justafit Mulberry Sleep Suit Review

Crawling and toddling can spark a huge range of new and exciting things for a child. They can now reach those toys that are out of arms reach, climb mountains aka stairs and press the buttons on the Sky+ box. They also encounter the word “no” at this stage, experience many accidents caused by over independence and those terrible sleep …
