Win with Rhodes Squish

Win with Rhodes Squish

I have always been someone that goes for convenience and even more so now being a mom of two. I don’t know how others do it but I never seem to have enough hours in the day. Alex started eating solids about a month ago with me cooking up some veggies for her, until one day I got an amazing delivery from Squish. It has changed my life, and saved me so much time on more occasions than I care…

Child’s Farm Review

Child’s Farm Review

This product has impressed me so much over the past few weeks, Jaymes hair, skin and my nose have been doing a happy dance in unison. Why my nose? Because I have never smelled a product so fresh, light and just beautiful. I am generally sensitive to smells and I am easily triggered into a migraine but none of the child farm products have caused any issues. The smell is so good that I’ve gone as far as leaving the…

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…

10 tips to help your child improve their reading

Here they are: Make sure there is no other distractions. Have them look at…

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…
