Nursing in Style with Elizabeth Brown Maternity

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.

Instagram has become a big part of this,  and I love it as a place to share as well as find some awesome businesses just like Gigi Loves Blake.

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.

The Pillow You Need for You and Your Baby

The Pillow You Need for You and Your Baby

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.

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.

Educational Play Using Technology

Educational Play Using Technology

There are some people who hate technology and feel that we should not let our children use it. Luckily, my toddler prefers to run around outside; but I love that when we are indoors, I can let her use the iPad. Just because I'm letting her use technology however, doesn't mean it has to be all play. I really believe in the power of play to be educational. Having apps like the Shifu Fusion app complete with AR cards and the upcoming Orboot, are ways to secretly teach while being fun.

Keeping Routines the Same with Two Children

Keeping Routines the Same with Two Children

One of the biggest worries for me when I was preparing for having two small children around the house, was keeping bedtime routines the same. I knew that getting them into pyjamas, reading a bedtime story, having bedtime prayers and singing before they sleep were all things that I'd have no problem continuing once I had two children. However, I had no idea how I was going to safely bath two little humans on my own.
