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.

Dealing with allergies thanks to Baby Dove Rich Moisture

My lovely little daughter Daisy has FPIES. This is an allergy syndrome that can cause profuse projectile vomiting, among other things. Fun times. Being a parent to a child with allergies means that we often have skin issues to deal with too. Sensitive skin, food causing allergy reactions and nappy changing can be a bit of a pain to say the least. Daisy has had a lot of problems with nappy rash in the past so I have to be careful about what products I use on her skin. We were recently asked to test out Baby Dove Rich Moisture products from the Baby Dove range (also available as a Sensitive Moisture fragrance-free range) and I chose the Baby Dove Rich Moisture nappy cream and wipes, knowing that they would be most useful for us.

Review: Sesame Street Tickle Me Elmo

Can a child ever really have too many toys? I often think that yes, they can. Then I will see something absolutely fun or interesting that I know Daisy will LOVE! Sesame Street is a program that my husband and I have grown up watching, and loving. Daisy is new to Sesame Street but this Tickle Me Elmo has been going down a storm with her! I’ve got an unboxing video today so that you can have a look at Tickle Me Elmo for yourself!

Here is a little look at Tickle Me Elmo out of the box:

Tickle Me Elmo

Now take a look at my Tickle Me Elmo unboxing video:


Now as you can see this comes well packaged, in a cardboard box. I had to use scissors to remove this as there were at least 4 or 5 tabs to cut. This was fine but you’ll definitely want to use scissors to avoid ripping Tickle Me Elmo.

When it comes to activating Tickle Me Elmo he was originally in demo mode. This was simple enough to move to the On position. Then I simply had to press Tickle Me Elmo’s hands, feet or belly to hear one of 20 sounds. Tickle Me Elmo talks and giggles and is great fun for little ones. I have had great fun playing with this and really enjoy the laughter. It is infectious and I love that Tickle Me Elmo shakes so much when he is giggling. This brings another fun element to this toy for little ones and my daughter has been loving it so far! You can buy him from Amazon. Elmo is designed for children aged 3+. My daughter is 20 months but loves playing with him.


We received Tickle Me Elmo for free in exchange for this review. All opinions are our own.

Review: PoundToy – A website that sells £1 toys

Christmas is fast approaching. You already know this don’t you?! Well I don’t know about you but I have a blinking HUGE family to get presents for. While I have been fortunate enough to get some goodies sent to me this year, that I have put up for Christmas, there always seems to be a few more people that I haven’t got presents for yet. Or one more stocking filler that I want to buy. I was offered the chance to review PoundToy recently – a website that sells toys for just £1!
