Purity & Elizabeth Anne’s Special Baby Shampoo Review

Purity & Elizabeth Anne’s Special Baby Shampoo Review

Purity & Elizabeth Anne is a household name for us and many other people I know. We first used the range 7 years ago when Jayme was a baby, we were gifted many of the products for my baby shower. When Alex was born we used the baby petroleum jelly from Purity & Elizabeth Anne because the smell and feel of it was the best out of all of the ones we tried. We never had any issues with nappy…

Products making the weaning process easier & Nuby Review

Products making the weaning process easier & Nuby Review

Alex is now 7 months old and about a month into baby lead weaning and eating all kinds of solid foods. It makes a huge mess, I had to mentally prep for this stage. Luckily I’ve been through it once so I sort of knew what to expect but for new moms, be ready for ALOT of mess. On the floor, the chair, clothing – yours and baby’s basically any surface is fair game. The first item that is making…

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…

Nuby Wacky Teething Ring

Nuby Wacky Teething Ring

We having officially hit the dreaded teething phase with Alex. No signs of any teeth yet but all the other signs are there. Excessive drooling, constantly biting on hands and random chewing.

Some articles online mention that chewing is a sign that a tooth is close by, most say that within a week or two you will see a tooth but its been atleast three weeks now of her doing…

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…

Meet Hunadi

Meet Hunadi

Hunadi is SA’s first multi-lingual African speaking doll hits shelves just in time for Christmas. The little doll with big hair and even bigger dreams speaks in 4 of South Africa’s 11 official languages. When Hunadi first arrived at our home she surprised us all. We didn’t expect her to be as big as she is. Her beautiful Schwe-Schwe dress and funky Afro hair caught our attention immediately. It is refreshing to see a doll that caters to our South…

Joh Breastfeeding Shawl

Joh Breastfeeding Shawl

Shortly after Baby Alex was born I found myself avoiding leaving the house because I feared how some people still find breastfeeding in public unacceptable. Can you believe that? In 2018? It’s crazy to think that we still live in a world where people are uncomfortable with the one thing that most boobies are designed to do. As fate would have it, I was contacted by the amazing Boss Mom behind Joh just as fear kicked in yet again and…
