Bibetta Children’s Placemat with Pocket

Erin is a bit of a messy eater. We don’t use a high chair anymore and we quite often end up with food all over the dining table. We’ve recently been trying out the Bibetta Children’s Placemat with Pocket. We have tried various other suction type mats before now, some of which stuck and some of which didn’t. The Bibetta placemat was a bit different so I was looking forward to seeing how Erin got on with this one. The Bibetta placemat features a black, non-slip backing which is designed to keep it in place. It also as a small

Home accessories from Red Candy

Only recently have we really started to make more personal touches around the house. We have lived here for 3 years now but haven’t really done an awful lot to the house, even though there is loads that needs doing. Since having Erin I have wanted more photos around the house. We were lucky enough to work with Red Candy recently who really helped us out with making our house a home. I was faced with the incredibly difficult task of picking a product from the website and it took me hours! I do mean hours as well. I kept

The Flavour-Led Weaning Cookbook + Giveaway

When we started weaning with Erin I wanted to make sure she had a really varied diet. I am such a fussy eater myself and I will try anything to make sure Erin isn’t like this. However, the cookbooks we used were a bit boring to be honest. Purees were plain fruit and veg and there was nothing too exciting to try. I was so exited when I discovered The Flavour-Led Weaning Cookbook by Zainab Jagot Ahmed. The Flavour-led Weaning Cookbook offers over 100 first-tastes recipes your baby will love. It will be your best-friend in the kitchen from day 1,

Keeping warm with The Hot Water Bottle Shop

I know it’s the middle of April but we live in the UK. Spring doesn’t necessarily mean warm weather and I HATE being cold, especially on an evening. A hot water bottle normally does the trick to warm me up quickly. My hot water bottle is getting quite old now. It was something John bought me a few years ago. Now that there are three of us in the house one hot water bottle just isn’t enough. We were lucky enough to be sent new hot water bottles from the Hot Water Bottle Shop. John has been given my old

Asda Little Angels Nappies

Months ago we used to use Asda Little Angels nappies all the time. I don’t know what happened but we had quite a few bags where the quality wasn’t great so we changed brands. When I was asked to try the new Little Angels nappies I figured it was worth a try. We received a pack of 78 nappies (Prices vary depending on pack size) to try and I made sure we used the whole packet before writing this review. After my experience with this brand before, I wanted to make sure there wasn’t going to be the odd one

My Name Tags Review

Erin and I are out and about at least 3 days a week normally. We go swimming and to local playgroups as well as soft play etc. Obviously we take a fair amount of ‘stuff’ with us including Erin’s cups/ bottle and her little fox changing bag. Things get put down, picked up and moved and I wanted to do something to make it easier to find Erin’s things again. My Name Tags offer personalised stickers and iron-ons for exactly this! There are a couple of different options of different products available. You can choose from colour or black and
