Autumn loves her food, but I worry about her eating too many things that aren’t good for her. After all, a lot of convenient on-the-go foods have scary levels of salt and sugar in them, even when they’re marketed at children! Meanwhile, at 18 months old, her taste-buds have become more sensitive to flavours. If my husband provides her with some chocolate buttons, some chunks of pear and blueberries, the fruit will all go straight on the floor! Therefore, it’s important that healthy snacks are presented to her carefully and in a fun way, like Googly Fruit‘s organic products.
Babies can appreciate music even when they’re in the womb. Seeing Autumn enjoy dancing to music is one of my favourite things. In recent months, we’ve made the move onto playing musical instruments together too. This is a brilliant way to help develop their language and listening skills. We’ve been hitting saucepans with wooden spoons and shaking rice in bottles for a while as well as attending various classes. However, Autumn’s first ‘proper’ instrument was a xylophone kindly sent to us to review.
Musical Bumps run music classes for babies, toddlers and beyond around the country. Based on the Hungarian Kodaly method of music teaching, they use a mixture of traditional favourite music, as well as less well known music from around the world. Through play, children can grasp musical skills and basic musical concepts, such as rhythm. We recently visited our local class at Dance Junction in Rochester, Kent. View Post
If you have a baby, chances are you may have heard of Childs Farm. Whilst I’ve tried out other great bathtime products, I’ve been itching to try out these products since Autumn was a newborn. I was delighted when I was approached with a lovely gift hamper to test out.
Autumn loves her bath time, so she’s always more than happy to be my little guinea pig when it comes to trying out bath products! View Post
Do your kids enjoy bath time? Bath time with Autumn is one of my favourite ways to spend quality time with her. She’s just always so happy splashing around in the bath and playing with her bath toys. She gets so excited!
I’m excited to say that two fantastic companies are giving you the opportunity to make bath time just as fun with your children too! On the other hand, if your children don’t like bath time, these may help to encourage them. Please take the time to get to know Paladone and Good Bubble a little better, don’t just scroll past!
