Love Keep Create Baby Clothes Keepsake Review

I was given the fantastic opportunity of having P2s treasured clothes turned into a keepsake bear thanks to Love Keep Create. I’ve been so excited to share this with you. You needed four items of clothing, less if bigger than an average babygrow. I sent off five items. Here are the pictures of P2 wearing them: Her Nannie bought this …

Medela Electric Swing Breast Pump Review

I’ve been experiencing a really bad time when it comes to expressing with P2. I was convinced it was my fault, that I wasn’t producing enough milk or that my body just didn’t like to express. I now realise that it wasn’t my actual ability to express that was the issue, it was the ability of the pump I was …

Saaf Skincare Eraser Body Oil Review

We’ve been trying out Saaf Skincare Eraser Body Oil for the past month. When I say we I mean my Mum. She’s been suffering from some dark itchy areas on her shins so when the bottle arrived I thought it would be a great product for her to test drive. The product comes in a lovely clear squirt bottle. I …

Schwartz 2in1 Recipe Range Sachet Review for Britmums

Recently I’ve been looking at new ways to change the way my family eats. For ease, I tend to just throw something in the oven, I don’t do very much home cooking – the type where you make everything from scratch. I was sent two sachets to try from the Schwartz 2in1 Recipe Range. Here’s what I thought of them: Garlic & Thyme …

Sudocrem Care and Protect Review

There’s no doubt about it, Thomas Smith is a genius. For those of you who don’t know who Thomas Smith is, he’s the creator of Sudocrem. Since having P1 Sudocrem has been my go to cream for nappy rash. I’ve also found the cream outstanding for spots and my bright red nose that I get during a cold. I jumped …

So there’s a positive line on the pregnancy test. You’re having a baby! Now it’s time to start getting excited and buying lots of bits for your new arrival.

Walkers Hoops & Crosses Review

I unexpectedly received a parcel in the post yesterday morning. Inside contained a monkey holding a packet of crisps. I’ve been chosen, along with many other parent bloggers, to review Walkers Hoops and Crosses crisps. Both the girls absolutely love the monkey. Not surprising really, it’s beautiful. As for the crisps; well we were sent the Roast Beef flavour. Which …

Cherish and Cherubs Personalised Letter Train Review

I can’t wait to own our first family home. To have somewhere I can put my own stamp on, redecorating and choosing furniture. It’s exciting! I definitely want to focus on decorating the girls room first. Making it all girlie, and I don’t mean only pinks! I’d love to put up those personalised pictures with their names and have pretty …

Fisher-Price Woodsy Friends Comfy Time Bouncer Review

I jumped at the chance of reviewing a Fisher-Price bouncer! With P1 I always found it such a struggle to find a bouncer that suited her needs – she was fussy! A basic, cheap bouncer didn’t settle her. A swinging one with music didn’t settle her. One that went from side to side, music and vibrations also, didn’t settle her. …

Cracked And Sore

Three days of breastfeeding my nipples became very cracked and sore. Every time P2 latched I’d wince in pain and suffer the whole feed just wondering how long I could cope with this before I was forced to give up. On day four, we visited my MiL and she suggested a nipple cream and that although expensive, Lansinoh was a great product. …

Sock Ons Review

I’ve lost count of the amount of socks I’ve lost during P1s life. So many times I’ve looked at her to find one foot absolutely freezing and the other nice and snug, that missing sock never to be found again. There’s definitely a sock monster lurking. One day when out shopping my mum found a new little invention called Sock Ons. At first …

Storing Made Simple – Review 8

Lansinoh is a brand made for breastfeeding mums. Currently I’ve used three of their products. But I’m going to talk about their Storage Bags for expressed milk. Whilst P1 was in Special Care I expressed milk. Our fridge and freezer was packed full of bottles of my milk – so was the hospitals! We had little room for anything else. …
