5 Tips for Dealing with a Fussy Eater

Having a fussy eater in the family really does bring us down and limits dinner times. Here's some top tips for all those struggling.
Ever since weaning age, Keira has always proved herself to be challenging when it comes to food but I wasn’t aware just how much of a fussy eater she was going to be. From around 11 months old she had already made me aware of what she liked and disliked, or maybe it was just what she wanted to eat and what she didn’t.

I have always been able to count on one hand the foods that she will eat, yep there really isn’t many, and it has been such a stress getting her to eat something new or something that she “didn’t like”. Meal times have been so stressful and most of the time they end up in tears from us both. I never thought that trying to get your child to eat could be so draining, mentally and physically.

Sending Invitations with Paperless Post | Birthday Prep

Joshua's birthday is very swiftly approaching so now is time to begin the prep, starting with invitations from Paperless Post.

It’s just 6 weeks until Joshua’s 2nd birthday and I have done nothing to contribute to it, not even bought a present. To be honest, Joshua’s 2nd birthday really has snuck up on me. I am totally not ready for Joshua to turn 2. Anyway, I am finally making a start on organising things, starting with the invitations for his little party. I absolutely suck at sending out invites in the post and I hate having to buy stamps to send letters. So when I was approached by Paperless Post to use their services, I was delighted. I couldn’t wait to dive in.

6 Tips on Keeping Baby Safe in the Heat

With Summer quickly approaching and temperatures rising, it is important we remember all the ways we can be keeping baby safe in the heat.

The weather in the UK has been lovely the last few weeks and we have really enjoyed all the sunshine. We spent entire days in the garden, splashing in the pool and running around the grass. It’s been so much fun for the children because they love playing in the garden.

The one thing that worries me about the warmer weather is the risk of overheating in babies and so many parents are unsure on how they should be keeping baby safe and avoid becoming seriously ill.

Benefits of Bed Sharing & How to Practice Safely

Bed sharing with our babies is vast becoming a common practice within our homes, but many are still unsure of how to do it safely.

I started bed sharing with Joshua when he was newborn, he just would not settle on his own and I needed to get some sleep so into the bed he came. He stayed in our bed for 19 months and if Zara hadn’t been born then he would probably still be there now. I mean, I wake up some mornings and he’s in our bed so I know he’d be a permanent fixture in our bed if he could.

Zara is now in our bed and even though I have been thinking about moving her into the cot, I’m pretty sure she’ll be in our bed for a while. As I’m still breastfeeding, bed-sharing just works and makes it much easier for night feeds. It means I can feed Zara, whilst lying down, and we normally fall asleep together. It’s a very special moment between us.
