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”.

Fisher-Price BeatBo Range

As a parent, safety is paramount and slipping on the floor whilst crawling is one we don't normally think of straight away. Luckily Crawlerz did!

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.
