Rocking in Style with the Fisher Price Infant to Toddler Rocker

One thing that we haven't really had for Little L since she was a baby was some form of vibrating or rocking seat, some thing that we had for Squidgy but never really got around to using with Little L as we gave her big sister's one to a friend who needed one. When I was offered the chance to try out Fisher Price's new infant to toddler rocker, I jumped at it. Even though she may not be a baby anymore, I knew that she would still get plenty of use out of it!

The Perfect Christening Outfit from Roco Clothing

When it came to Christening Little L, we had to make sure that everything was perfect, just as it was for her big sister 3 years ago. If you read my post about her Christening you will already know that we had a near perfect day, and one way this was made possible was with the amazing Christening gown from Roco Clothing.

No Junk Weaning with HiPP Organic

No Junk Weaning with HiPP Organic

One of the most important things when you start weaning your baby is knowing that the food that you're providing them with is both nutritional and junk free. Obviously it helps if it tastes good too. The easiest way to do that is to make your own food from fresh, which is exactly what I did with Squidgy. This time around it is not as easy to find the time to cook and prepare fresh food every day, so although I am doing some meals this way, I wanted to have a back up plan. That's where pouches and jars of baby food came in.

Growing up with the Sleepyhead Grand

If you read my "Newborn Baby Must Haves" post you will know that we bought and fell in love with the Sleepyhead Deluxe. As Little L has grown in age and height, she has slowly but surely outgrown the Deluxe, something that I was very sad to see as it has made a massive difference to how well she sleeps at night. Then I realised that there was another one, a larger one, the Sleepyhead Grand. Now that she has the next size up, all is well again!

Baking with my Toddler

Baking with my Toddler

I have always loved to bake, and Squidgy is forever asking to "help" in the kitchen, despite the fact that for a long time she has been too small to do anything except make a mess. Now that she is a little older, I decided that she was more capable of actually being a help rather than hindrance, and so when we had the opportunity to try out the cookie kit from What2Buy4Kids, it was a no brainer that we would get our bake on.

Easing Back Strain with the Hippychick

Easing Back Strain with the Hippychick

When we went on our cruise we knew that we would be spending a lot of time walking around both the ship itself and the ports that we were visiting. Although we took a stroller for Squidgy and our Doona for Little L, there was plenty of times when we didn't use one or both of them, and ultimately this resulted in us needing to carry our children on our hips. Having the Hippychick made this so much easier, and here is why we love it.

Babymule; The Changing Bag to Change Your Travelling Life

Babymule; The Changing Bag to Change Your Travelling Life

When we knew that we would be travelling abroad with our little family, my husband and I began racking our brains to think of everything that we would need to ensure a safe and relaxing holiday for all of us. I am a list person, so I began creating lists to cover every possible thing that we would need. This included a changing bag that would be easy to use and carry.

Nursing in Style with Elizabeth Brown Maternity

When my friend and I took a trip to London with my two girls in tow, to attend the Baby Show at the ExCel arena a short while ago, little did I know, I would end up falling in love with some new brands I had never come across before, including the awesome Elizabeth Brown Maternity who offer a range of maternity and nursing clothing from teeny sizes to plus sizes.

Longer, Brighter Days and Sleepless Nights

Longer, Brighter Days and Sleepless Nights

You may remember that I reviewed the Gro Clock that Squidgy got for Christmas a short while ago, and told of how well it had worked for us when it came to keeping her in her own room at night, rather than appearing at my bedside at some silly hour in the morning. I'm not going to lie, it all was going really well until the clocks changed. Then things took a bit of a back step, as the nights got shorter and the days longer, and so we have had to add to our Gro collection with our new Gro Anywhere Blinds.

Swaddling in Spring with ErgoPouch Australia

Swaddling in Spring with ErgoPouch Australia

Swaddling Little L has been one of the only ways that we have been able to get her to settle at night, especially since she began cutting teeth. She can get in a complete state and just wants to be held, and swaddling has been a great comfort to her. I was worried about how we were going to continue to offer this comfort as the weather began to warm up, that is until we were offered the ergoCocoon Swaddle Sleepbag.

When Head Lice Strike

When Head Lice Strike

Here's the thing. I'm pretty sure all of us, at some point in our lives, have caught those dreaded little bugs we call, "head lice". They are annoying, itchy and as hard to get rid of as they are easy to catch. With my daughter now in pre school and heading towards the age of starting, "proper" school, it suddenly dawned on me that at some point we're likely to get that letter. I wasn't expecting it to come soon though.

You may remember my review of the awesome Original Theraline that I used (and continue to use!) during my pregnancy. I recently started using another of Theraline's awesome range, their nursing pillow (also known as the 'Plushy Moon'.) It has become one of our number one baby items and goes with us everywhere we go, and today's post is all about why.

Husbabye Baby from Whisbear the Humming Bear

Whisbear the Humming Bear is officially one of the best products that we have in our home for Little L, and I cannot tell you how much I have fallen in love with this amazing grey bear. Little did I know when he arrived in our home, that he would become such an important member of our family, as a comforter for not just my baby but other members of my family too.

Busting the Milk and Grime in our Bottles

Busting the Milk and Grime in our Bottles

When we had our first daughter, I breastfed. However I also expressed to allow my husband to feed her and give me a chance to have a rest every once in a while. Over time, the bottles became cloudy and began to smell, no matter how much I tried to clean and sterilise them. Getting them back out for the second time they still wouldn't come up clean, that is until now.
