Trying Bassetts Vitamins Omega-3 + Multivitamins Orange Flavour Pastilles

My little daughter Daisy is a bit of a fussy eater*. She has FPIES, and multiple allergies, so it isn’t surprising really. We always liken Daisy to having days where she eats like a bird and days where she eats like a horse. This has got better in the last few months, but we are always conscious of trying new foods and giving her lots of fruits and vegetables. On the days where she doesn’t want to eat a lot, I like to make her a nice smoothie, to get plenty of goodness inside her. Recently we were invited to try the newly launched Bassetts Vitamins Omega-3 + Multivitamins Orange Flavour Pastilles for 3 – 6-year-olds. Today I want to share a few thoughts about them, and even share a little artwork that Daisy has created!

Review: Colladeen Visage

Since becoming a parent in 2016 I feel like my self-care has fallen by the wayside. I’ve gradually become better at self-care as a parent and trying to do more for myself. I was recently offered the chance to try Colladeen Visage, which is designed to help support normal collagen formation in the skin, and I decided I had nothing to lose really! This is my Colladeen Visage review.

Colladeen Visage retails for £18.95 per 60 tablets, and you take two tablets daily with a meal. I have been taking my tablets at dinnertime, as I know I would forget at other times. You can buy Colladeen Visage here.

Review: Shake It Slim Starter Pack

In 2018 so far I’ve been working a little harder to lose weight. I haven’t lost a huge amount but I am 1/2 a stone lighter than I was at the start of the year. Better than nothing! This is despite not eating the best, and having a lot of stress recently leading me to eat naughty food and exercise less than I would like to. Recently I’ve been lacking in motivation to get started with healthier eating and exercise again. This is where Shake It Slim comes in! I have been using the Shake It Slim Starter Pack for the past week and want to share with you exactly how it has gone for me.

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.

My birth experience - Daisy made it!
