Keeping children happy on holiday

We’ve just returned from another week at Centerparcs. We never really get tired of visiting but as Daisy grows we are always looking for new ways to keep her happy on holiday. Keeping children happy on holiday might seem like an easy task before you head off. It isn’t unreasonable to assume that your children will be happy on holiday, what with undivided attention, swimming, activities and much more, however, you’ll probably be wrong! Anyway, these are my preferred ways of keeping Daisy happy on holiday!

Review: Snuggletime Winnie the Pooh Plush range from Posh Paws

Soft toys… they are the things that memories are made of right?! At least in this house. I personally don’t have any soft toys from my childhood, which makes me upset. I do however have some lovely soft toys from more recent periods in my life. When my daughter was born, my First Mother’s Day as a pregnant Mum and other lovely occasions. For my husband, he has quite a few soft toys and other items from his childhood, which is lovely. Recently Thomas came home from his parents and he was beaming, and carrying a Mr Bean toy from when he was growing up. This was so cute and we had a nice chat about different memories and soft toys we have had over the years. Our lovely daughter Daisy has recently received some new soft toys and I’m writing this post to show them off to you today.

Daisy slept without a soft toy in the hospital but as soon as we were home she had supervised naps with a soft toy that I had been sleeping with. This helped Daisy to feel comforted and meant that she had my smell near her too.

Understanding my babies cry with Nelsons Colica®

This is a sponsored post. When my daughter was born I felt like I was pretty prepared. Crying, feeding, changing nappies, dressing a tiny person, it all comes with the territory right? I had read every book I could get my hands on beforehand but nothing really prepares you for something quite like diving in and getting on with it. For me, I felt that it took me a couple of months to get to grips with understanding my babies cry. My daughter was a poorly baby so she cried a LOT. Being able to understand her cry made a huge difference in our lives and my happiness as a new Mum.

Keeping dry with the Dry Kids All In One

Daisy and I visit my Mum, Daisy’s Grandma, on a frequent basis. At least once a week, often much more, Daisy and I are walking the 2-mile round trip up to Grandma’s house and back again. We love spending time with Grandma but one thing I don’t love is the unpredictable British weather! Daisy is usually tucked up nicely within her Joie Stroller but recently she has started to want to be more independent. This means that Daisy wants to walk more. While I don’t mind really, as she’s got a backpack rein, I want her to be protected from the elements and to keep her clothes nice on our walk. This is where Dry Kids comes in to play, and the Dry Kids All In One which you can see here!

Review: Summer Infant Slumber Buddies Soothing Turtle + Giveaway

Daisy typically has a good bedtime routine. However, like all babies, Daisy likes to mix it up from time to time and give us a night from hell! We were sent the Summer Infant Slumber Buddies Soothing Turtle a couple of weeks back and it was during one particularly bad night that we freed the turtle from his packaging and gave him a try for the first time!
