I think the time is coming that I have always dreaded. I think the time has come for Erin to stop napping! I have always stuck by the saying ‘sleep when they do’ and I don’t care that Erin is 2 years old now! Being a parent is bloody exhausting and if you can grab 10 minutes, half an hour or 3 hours, do it when you can! So, how do you cope when your toddler stops napping? Erin has always slept a lot from the day she was born. I’m adamant that this is something that came from being
As I had a pretty rough time after Erin’s birth we had to make the choice to bottle feed her quite early on. It wasn’t something I had wanted to do initially but you do what you have to do and it was really the best choice for Erin in the end. Erin has always loved her bottles and up until recently, would still have a full bottle of milk before naps and bedtime. However, with her turning two recently I decided it was time to say goodbye to bottles. To be completely honest this was only going to be
Our holiday to Center Parcs back in October was our first ever visit there so we were a bit unsure about what we wanted to do and what we wanted to book for Erin to do. There is so much choice for children but a lot of the activities were for ages 3 and up so for babies and under 3’s there isn’t quite as much. We chose not to book too much for Erin because we didn’t know how she would cope with being on holiday but right at the top of our list was Baby Owls. Erin loves
We’re now at the end of November and it’s pretty cold outside now! Erin and I get stuck indoors a lot of the time due to not being able to drive; we don’t want to get soaked before we even get somewhere! However, spending a few days in a row indoors with a nearly 2 year old means constantly having to think of fun and different things to do so they don’t get bored. Addo Play have some great winter boredom busters for toddlers we’ve been trying some of them out lately. Erin will soon be starting nursery and we’re
For months and months Erin was crazy about one only television show and we would watch next to nothing else with her. Just recently though, Erin has developed a love for In The Night Garden (ITNG) and it is now part of her bedtime routine. With the clocks changing recently, we were sent the Twinkling Lullaby Iggplepiggle and it couldn’t have come at a better time! When you get any kind of toy that includes a battery pack you don’t expect them to feel quite as soft and cuddle as they should. That’s not the case at all with Twinkling Lullaby Iggplepiggle.
Erin is a massive Paw Patrol fan so when we got asked to review a range of drinks from Appy Kids Co, I couldn’t resist. If you haven’t heard of Appy Kids Co before, they’re on a mission to offer both healthy and affordable drinks for children and they’re using well-known characters to help do that. Not only did we receive 2 boxes of the Paw Patrol 200ml Pouch Orange Juice Drink and 2 boxes of the Paw Patrol 200ml Pouch Apple Juice Drink but also the Dora and Friends Mixed Berries Juice Drink and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Multifruit Drink. Drinks with
This is the first year that Erin has been walking (more like bulldozing) her way around and over the summer, I felt like there was loads of things for us to do. It was always nice to get out of the house while the weather was nice but it got me thinking about what we could do in autumn, when the weather starts to get wet and miserable. Here are 10 free and cheap things to do with toddlers in autumn Kick up leaves in the park Last autumn Erin was only just starting to move about so she didn’t really
A little while ago now we received a fantastic The Very Hungry Caterpillar themed bundle and I couldn’t wait to get stuck in to it. The bundle contained a whole range of products but what I noticed the most was that it was full of things for toddlers to do. I really struggle sometimes to think of things to do with Erin and these products will be great for thinking of some fun activities while the weather is terrible! Lunchtime is always a bit of a struggle with Erin. You can never really tell whether she’s in the mood for eating
