Baby’s 1st Birthday Wishlist

Oh wow! A whole year has come around so blimmin’ fast. Even in the newborn days, and thinking that one day, my little bear is going to have his 1st birthday, imagining what we’re going to do to celebrate, I never actually imagined how emotionally overwhelming it would all feel. To think that I have an almost 1 year old child is crazy, yet wonderful. Thinking of all of the things we have done, achieved, and goals we’ve reached in a whole year makes me feel so so proud of us. Our little family, my whole world. View Post

Looking After Baby Skin in Winter with WaterWipes*

As the weather has been getting colder and more harsh on skin (British weather eh?) whether it be my own or my baby’s, I had to take action fast on protecting it and keeping it well cared for. I had asked a couple of friends for recommendations and my fellow blogger friend Emily recommended me for the opportunity to try out WaterWipes.

Bear has been getting a lot of nappy rash lately and I’ve been working so hard to try and tackle it with different creams, changing nappy regularly and making sure he has baths and washes regularly. After a while, nothing was helping it anymore. When I was sent the WaterWipes, I got straight to trying them out. View Post

Beautiful Personalised Prints with Dee Dee & Boo*

Like most people I know, I’m a sucker for anything personalised. Whether that be personalised pictures, books or clothes, I’m all over it. There is just something about personalised items that make them that bit more special. I have ordered a couple of personalised books and a poster for Logan’s first birthday & have been looking to get a lovely dressing gown with his name on. He already has a gorgeous towel from My First Years that he received as a gift from birth, a taggie blanket from The Cuddle Company that was, again, a gift from birth, and to add to the list, we have a pram charm that we bought from our local market that has his name on a ribbon, 2 colours chosen by myself and a little dummy. This has now had to be removed as he can reach it and he likes it dangling (little monkey). View Post

The Dreaded T Word

Teething. Oh, the joys. Most parents have experienced it, some may be beginning to experience it and some just will not know what’s hit them (I don’t mean to put you off, I am sorry).

Logan is now 6 months and almost 4 weeks old (29 weeks to be precise) and we are definitely no strangers to teething. I must admit, he’s never gotten some of the symptoms a lot of parents talk about. He’s had slight reddening of his cheeks, a shit ton of drooling, a crap load of whinging and the need to bite and chew everything  (yes, my fingers were constantly bitten during this process). So far, fingers crossed, we’ve had no sleepless nights  (though you could count him constantly waking and only being settled with boob as having a slightly sleepless night, but he usually sleeps until about 9/10am so I’m definitely not complaining ha!)

We are constantly trying out new products and items to help us along this exhausting and tedious (oh so tedious) journey, but I thought I’d tell you all about a few things we have found absolutely invaluable and helpful to little bear and his peggies. View Post
