Pampers Baby-dry with Air Channels Review

Pampers Baby-dry with Air Channels Review

Pampers has introduced their new innovative world-first in nappy technology with unique air channels which create space for air to flow freely inside the nappy for breathable dryness overnight. Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post. The new Pampers Baby-dry air channel nappies were sent to us to review, however the views and opinions expressed in the review are my own. We have been a pampers household for the past 5 months and we also used pampers when Jayme was younger so it didn’t take much convincing for us to try the new pampers air channels. The most important requirement for me was that it actually lived up to its 12…

Brushing babies gums

Brushing babies gums

In collaboration with Nuby When should I start wiping or brush my babies gums? One of the hundreds of questions that go through moms minds. My mom and aunties believe one should start soon after they are born to care for their oral health while many breastfeeding blogs I’ve read say that it isn’t necessary while you are breastfeeding your baby exclusively. I believe that we Moms should be able to make our own decision drawing from where ever we…

Returning to work after maternity leave

Returning to work after maternity leave

My maternity leave ended far too quickly. I’m sure most moms feel this way. I say most because i did not feel the same way when my maternity leave ended with Jayme 7 years ago. I remember being excited to rejoin the world, but now?, I wish I could stay home with her another week or 10. A huge difference might be that Jayme stayed home with my mom for 2 years, Alex is starting school at a tender 4…
