Review: Dream Tubes for safer sleep

 A few weeks back we put Athena and Arlo into the same bedroom in bunk beds, with Arlo in the bottom bunk of course! We did have a bed rail set up originally, then Hippy Chick asked if we wanted to try out Dream Tubes to help the transition from cotbed to bunk beds. They’re so easy to use, you…

Broodiness, Bonding and Brand New Babies

A couple of weeks ago I had a the pleasure of having a proper natter about all things newborn with my friend Lyndsay. We met through blogging before I had my children and she’s just had a baby of her own, though she was pregnant when we got together. I don’t think there are any more babies on the horizon…

Totsbots Easyfit Star meets Joules! #JoulesXTotsBots

It’s not often that two of your favourite brands join up and collaborate, and even less likely when one of those brands is TotsBots, who make the nappies that grace my boy’s bottom daily! However it has happened, TotsBots have joined forces with Joules, that quintessentially british brand to create a new print for their EasyfitStar nappy range and it…

Baby Loves: Oxo Tot!

My children are definitely grazers rather than three square meals a day types so I tend to always have a selection of little snacks in my bag to keep them happy when we’re out and about. OxoTot recently sent me some bits to help keep Arlo happy with a snack to hand, and something for Athena too!
