Does your child enjoy reading? I’m raising a little bookworm! I’ve been reading to Autumn since she was about 6 weeks old and she absolutely loves books. Whether she’s on holiday, the library or at the park as the sun begins to set, reading is one of her favourite things to do. We recently received some lovely baby books from Book People – and you can win a duplicate set in the giveaway further down this page! View Post
We all want to do the best for our children. I remember my parents being careful what shoes they bought me when I was growing up, as they knew the importance of looking after children’s feet carefully as they grow. This is something I’ve continued with Autumn, making sure that I have her feet measured regularly. However, I have recently learned about soft soled shoes and the effect they have on the health of baby’s feet. Dotty Fish have been working with The London Podiatry Centre to look into this – so here it is, the truth about what shoes your baby or toddler SHOULD be wearing! View Post
Autumn loves looking at photographs of family around the room, in albums and on my phone. She smiles at the familiar faces, says who they are and prods at them. Of course, the problem with this is that all of these things are breakable and potentially harmful. I was recently asked to review the newly launched “My First Photo Book” by Photobox. This seemed like a great way of providing Autumn with photos of those most special to her in an appropriate format for her. View Post
When I was pregnant with Autumn, I had a list of things to buy longer than my arm. Near the top of my list were the all-important sterilising and antibacterial products you need with a new baby. Parents have trusted Milton for over 70 years. I actually remember my mum using their products 20 years ago when my brother was a baby. As such, I trusted them and turned to them to help keep things clean enough for my baby! View Post
Whether it’s for a date night or something less fun, there’s always a first time that you have to leave your baby or toddler. This is often difficult the first time round, but it does get better! In the meantime, there are things you can do to make it easier for both you and your child.
