Making Bath Time Fun

AD | Gifted items Erin has had a bit of a strange relationship with bath time in her 10 months. When she was newborn she absolutely hated baths. She would scream so loud that next door heard her. Then, she started to realise baths could be fun and that she could splash about. Now it’s all changed again! In an attempt to make bath time more fun for Erin we turned to NubyUK for some help. The first bath toys we tried were the Nuby Squirters Bath Time Toys. These are suitable from 3 months and cost £7.99

Babease: Food for babies, not baby food!

When it comes to food for Erin, I’m always trying new things with her. While I do cook quite a lot at home, I also use a mix of jars and pouches that we buy in. One of the newest brands on the market is Babease. Babease are different from other brands because they pride themselves on their brand message: Food for babies, not baby food! This is what drew me to them in the first place. When you think of baby food, you think of orange mush. That’s definitely not what Babease do. Spaghetti Bolognaise or Cheesy Pasta

Night time nappy rash – Bepanthen Bedtime Challenge

We’ve been really lucky in that Erin has never really suffered from nappy rash. I have no idea how or why. We’ve never really had to use creams too much or too often on her apart from a couple of minor flare ups. However, from being about 7 months old, Erin stopped sleeping through. She’d been doing this straight from being 8 weeks old. One of the reasons why Erin stopped sleeping through the night was due to her wet nappy. About half way through the night Erin’s nappy was as full as it could possibly

HiPP Organic Free From Bath Range

Last week we got the exciting news about becoming a HiPP Organic Ambassador! I was so excited to receive the email and to find out about an exciting, mystery package that would be heading our way. HiPP Organic have very recently, only 2 days ago in fact, released a brand new free from baby care range! Erin and I were lucky enough to trial some of the new items before they hit the shops. As you can see from the pictures, Erin was VERY interested in the packaging and the envelope! HiPP’s new free from range is

Wishlist: Frugi A/W ’16

One of the first things Erin’s Auntie Natalie (my sister) bought her was some Frugi tights. She knew I would love them, and I did! I have been a bit obsessed ever since! Here’s my wishlist for the Autumn/ Winter ’16 range.  Little Bea Dress – £26 Reversable mushroom bib – £5 Lily Cord Dress – £30 Froogli Soft Toy – £25 This wishlist is a little bit different for me. I do generally only ever pick clothes for these kinds of things but I fell in love with the Crocodile Froogli. Erin loves to

The end of summer

Wow, I can’t believe it’s 5th September already. It is the end of summer and it would seem, the beginning of autumn. It feels like it was only 2 minutes ago that I was writing about the start of the summer holidays. It was 7 weeks ago that most of Erin’s classes stopped. 7 weeks ago the boredom kicked in! I don’t think I really noticed just how much of an impact the classes Erin attends had on her. You may have read my posts about Erin not sleeping. It was only recently that I

Erin’s unexpected first word!

Yesterday the very unexpected happened. Erin said her first word. Actually, that’s a bit of a lie. Technically she said her first word on Sunday but I wasn’t sure so I didn’t count it. For the past week or so I have really been trying to encourage Erin to copy what I say to her and I’ve been saying Mama, Dada and Pup A LOT! She has been super chatty lately so I thought it might be time for her to learn how to say a word. Yesterday was Bank Holiday Monday and that meant John

Playing with an 8 month old

Erin is turning 8 months old in a couple of days. She has changed so much in the past couple of weeks. One thing I have noticed more than anything is what she is and isn’t interested in any more. I’ve also realised that playing with an 8 month old is hard! Erin has loads of toys. She always has done. We’re very lucky that there is a children’s charity shop around the corner from where we live. We manage to pick up new toys for only 30p-50p a time so Erin has been a
