Sunday Review: Sudocrem Care & Protect

When I was offered the chance to review Sudocrem Care & Protect cream, I was intrigued. I’ve only used normal Sudocrem before and found it brilliant. It’s been around for over 80 years. In fact, my mum used it on my brother and I when we were babies and swore by it. I’d been using it for spots for years before I used it on Autumn’s nappy rash. Recently, she’s been teething and this seems to have made the nappy rash situation worse! Continue reading “Sunday Review: Sudocrem Care & Protect”

Mrs Tickit’s Pantry and Rochester High Street

Last week, my Mum and I decided to pay a visit to Rochester. I love Rochester, with its many pubs and eateries. It also has a lovely variety of quirky shops, perfect for finding gifts for people or something unusual for yourself. I think it is one of the few places where you could probably find something for everyone. Continue reading “Mrs Tickit’s Pantry and Rochester High Street”

Baby & Toddler Show at Sandown Park and Bluewater Bunnies

We had a lovely day out on Saturday (8th April). We went to the Baby & Toddler Show at Sandown park in Surrey. I’m always on the look out for new brands whose products I can try with Autumn. Of course, being a blogger, I’m always interested in working with brands too! Later in the afternoon we found some Lindt bunnies at Bluewater before we went home.

Sunday Review: Band t-shirts for mum/dad and baby!

Last year, shortly after I found out I was pregnant, my Dad’s friend told me about Little Rock Store. Since then I’ve been eager to own some of their merchandise. I love rock and metal, so to be able to buy mini band t-shirts for my baby is awesome! As well as other things like bibs, they also sell lullaby versions of some of my favourite albums.  Continue reading “Sunday Review: Band t-shirts for mum/dad and baby!”

Head injury – baby’s first visit to A&E

At 6 months old, Autumn is now into everything! Unfortunately, accidents happen, even if you are supervising your baby or child. Here is what happened to us on Wednesday when Autumn fell on her head, resulting in our first visit to Accident and Emergency (A&E) with her. I felt so guilty! Continue reading “Head injury – baby’s first visit to A&E”

When I found out I was pregnant – Mummy Confessions

Mummy Confessions was surprised but also not surprised to find out she was pregnant. But how was she going to tell her husband?

Hi and welcome to my When I found out I was pregnant guest series! It was originally supposed to be a 12 week series, but not everyone responded. To be honest, I’m worried about having too much of a good thing and overdoing it anyway. As such, this will be the final week of the guest series and as has been requested, I will reveal my story next Saturday.

This week I’m excited to introduce Mummy Confessions from Down Under, who wondered how she was going to tell her husband!

Mystery Blogger Award

This is the third blogger award I’ve been nominated for now! They say three’s a crowd, but it certainly isn’t when it comes to awards. The more the merrier, as far as I’m concerned!

I was nominated for this award by the lovely Tasha at It’s a Tasha thing. Thank you Tasha!

My first Mother's Day

I had a lovely first Mother’s Day, with lovely company and beautiful gifts.

Yesterday I experienced my first Mother’s Day as a mum. I think this is a big milestone for any new mum and the day takes on a whole new meaning! I think once you become a mum, as long as you had a good relationship with your mum you appreciate her a lot more. As a mother, I also appreciate my body a lot more – it’s amazing what it does throughout pregnancy and labour. Continue reading “My first Mother's Day”
