Review & Giveaway: Spot book and DVD

There are certain books that you’ll always remember from your childhood. A series I could never forget is the Spot books by Eric Hill. Not only were there books but there was also an animated television show. I jumped at the chance when the opportunity came about to review a Spot book and to host a giveaway for a book and a DVD! Erin, 7 and a half months old, is really getting into lift the flap books. This is partly why I was so excited to get to review Spot. I couldn’t wait to

Review: Asda Little Angels Bedtime Bath

On a mission to find something just as good but cheaper than Johnson’s Bed Time Bath I was shopping online at Asda recently and decided to give their Asda Little Angels Bedtime Bath a go. I figured it couldn’t be so bad that I wouldn’t use it anyway so I bought a couple of bottles. Asda Little Angels Bedtime Bath retails at £1 for a 500ml bottle. A Johnson’s 500ml bottle alternative costs about £3 so this one costs a third of the price! As this is an Asda product you can only get it

Review: Skip Hop Zoo Lunchie Fox

Normally I end up lugging around a pretty big changing bag for Erin. To start with I wanted to be that mum that was prepared for absolutely anything. The bag had multiple changes of clothes, whole packs of nappies and so many other things I really didn’t need for going to a baby yoga class 5 minutes away from home. I had been looking for a smaller alternative for quite some time now and the woman who runs my baby sensory class showed me what she uses for her daughter. The bag comes from Skip

Review: Chicco Polly Magic High Chair

Being so small Erin did not fit into a high chair very well. They all looked way too big for her and I was always worried that she wouldn’t be secure enough. After a lot of research I came across the Chicco Polly Magic Highchair which, unlike others, stated that it was suitable from birth instead of 6 months. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was the one for us and I had to have it. Price and availability Up until now I have been quite frugal when it comes to shopping

Cute Kitsch: A subscription box review

AD | Post contains gifted items and affiliate links (marked with *) Subscription boxes are so popular now compared to a couple of years ago. Hell, they’re more popular than only a year ago and that popularity keeps on growing. Something I had never seen before was a craft type subscription box and this was such a different idea compared to beauty boxes or ‘fan’ style boxes that I had seen before. I was so excited when Cute Kitsch offered to send me a sample of one of their boxes. Cute Kitsch is a very new box

Review: Summer Infant Slumber Buddy Frankie The Frog

I got into some pretty bad habits with Erin quite early on when it came to day time sleeping. I loved having her fall asleep on me and as she was premature, I didn’t want to put her upstairs on her own at such a young age. It wasn’t until she was nearly three months old that I figured that I needed to change her sleeping habits. As Erin had gotten so used to sleeping on me downstairs she did not go to sleep upstairs on her own very easily. If I put her down
