Starting our potty training journey with the Summer Infant My Size Potty (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted this item in exchange for coverage. Daisy turned 2 back in March 2018. For a while we weren’t worried about potty training, as Daisy didn’t seem ready, however, she is beginning to show the normal signs of being ready for potty training. We’re not going to be running in and forcing Daisy before she is ready, but we are wanting to support her in getting used to what potty training entails. Summer Infant has sent us the My Size Potty, to help Daisy on her potty training journey, and here are our thoughts on it.

Enjoying summer with the Apramo Flippa Dining Booster (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted this item in exchange for coverage. Our daughter Daisy has a LOT of allergies, thanks to a condition called FPIES. This means that dining out has become fraught with anxiety and stress. Daisy often wants to eat what we are eating, and can’t, and there are next to no restaurants that can cater to her needs. Also, cross-contamination is an ongoing concern too. We’ve recently been sent the Flippa Dining Booster, from Apramo, and have been testing it out eating in the garden with our family.

Keeping children happy on holiday (AD)

AD. 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 (AD – Gifted)

We were gifted these items in exchange for coverage and an honest review. 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® (AD)

AD. 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.
