My Little Piccolo Review

We are well past our early weaning days. In fact I went down the babyled weaning route with both P2 and P3. However, when Piccolo got in touch and asked me to sample their new range of pouches I couldn’t say no. Not only did the website and packaging appeal to me when I took a little look but I …

SMA® Nutrition “Come & Wean With Us™” & Competition

When I wrote my first post for the SMA Nutrition Come & Wean With Us campaign a few weeks ago, P3 was quite happily plodding along in her weaning journey with little struggles if I’m honest. Since then our weaning journey has changed quite significantly. P3 is learning to feed herself completely, when I say completely I really do mean it. Everything …

“We’ve slipped back into a horrible routine”

I had hoped to be writing a post about how well P2 was doing with giving up milk. We decided about two weeks ago that we needed to cut it out completely to start with. Like an addiction. It’s how we helped her to lose her dummies that she was so addicted to last year and that “cold turkey” approached …

Our Weaning Journey – Vegetables with Cow & Gate Friends

In my experience both Spoon-Led and Baby-Led weaning are equally effective and it’s purely up to the parent to decide which method suits them best. I’ve done both methods and am currently doing a mix of both with P3. You are advised to introduce flavours and ingredients one at a time to make sure that your baby isn’t allergic to …

Celebrating My Super Duper Big Sisters with Ella’s Kitchen

Being a sibling holds so many possibilities and responsibilities especially when you’re the big sister. You’re the one who will help your younger sibling to share, to play, to talk and develop.

We were given the really tough task of eating cakes. I know, terrible! Not just any cakes though, none other than Mr Kipling’s exceeding good ones.

The first week of the Easter …

But we had a good reason, we were off on a Big Adventure to see Tommee Tippee at The Baby Show. We’d been invited to a Princess & Pirate Party so the girls …

MAM Starter Set & Soother Pod Review

For P1 & P2 we used Tommee Tippee. Whether it was bottles, cups, spoons, soothers or even the steriliser – it was always Tommee Tippee. So when we recently decided to bottle feed P3 there was no question as to what we’d be using… or was there?! P3 point blank refused the Tommee Tippee bottles. Reluctantly, I dusted off the …
