Breastvest review and giveaway!

This is my second time breastfeeding and I have to say, there are elements I’m finding easier and some that are harder than the first time round but one thing is for sure – the Breastvest has made choosing clothes so much easier.   The first time I breastfed, I had about 6 breastfeeding tops on constant rotation and I have to say I was so bored of wearing the same thing over and over but I just didn’t have {Read More}

Thrupenny Bits Breastfeeding Pillow

I’m always looking for a helping hand when breastfeeding and I have to say I have totally fallen for the Thrupenny Bits Feeding Pillow. I had a much larger feeding pillow from my first pregnancy but it didn’t stay firm and ended up being more of a hindrance than a help; in fact I use it as a back pillow more than anything. However, the Thrupenny Bits Pillow has been fantastic (I have the Classic Nursing Pillow Blue Stripe). It’s filled {Read More}

Bedside Crib

I (ok well Benjamin) has been testing out the SnuzPod from The Little Green Sheep Company for the last three weeks and here are our initial thoughts. I was so excited when the SnuzPod arrived as I had heard really great things about it and I haven’t been disappointed. I opened it up as soon as I’d put my daughter to bed and managed to easily assemble it (at 39 weeks pregnant) within half an hour. It’s really sturdy and well {Read More}


Being pregnant for the second time, I thought I’d know most products I’d need to buy and use but Mumkind is a new pregnancy nutrition brand that are designed specifically for mums-to-be and new mums. We all know that during pregnancy we need to eat healthily but it doesn’t always work out, especially during the first trimester when sickness and queasiness take hold. That’s when products like Mumkind come in really handy; they offer products which top up a range {Read More}


I really wanted to breastfeed my little one but felt really self-conscious when having to feed out and about. When I tried the Milkscarf, it meant I could feed discretely whenever I needed too without feeling flustered about doing it. The material is a really soft jersey and the colours you can choose are lovely. I have the mink Milkscarf and this goes with pretty much all of my outfits. The reason I mention outfits is because one of the {Read More}

Spatone Apple with vitamin C Iron Sachets

As a busy new mum, I was constantly using up a lot of energy just trying to be ‘super mum’ who could do everything. I soon realised that it wasn’t going to work as I was just exhausted. One  of the first things to drop off my ‘essential list of things I must do’… household chores! But then I was introduced to Spatone Apple Iron Sachets and after taking them for a few weeks, I noticed a difference in my {Read More}

Snoob, The Stylish Breastfeeding Scarf

Breast feeding in public can seem like a daunting prospect for some new (and experienced) mums. If you’re anything like me, you’ll want the security of having something to cover up with just for your own modesty. For me, covering up while breastfeeding isn’t about other people (I couldn’t care less if people dislike what I’m doing) but I have always been self-conscious and with breastfeeding, it was no different.   I’ve used a selection of different breastfeeding covers, some {Read More}

Cussons Mum & Me Products

My daughter loves bath time, so I like to try anything new that could add to her enjoyment of it.  We tried the Cussons Mum & Me Mega Mild Bubbly Bath. Mega Mild Bubbly Bath is dermatologist approved, hypoallergenic and contains Avocado and Jojoba oils. It creates masses of bubbles and helps to keep their skin soft and smooth. This really does create a lot of lovely soft bubbles.  It is just as much fun for my husband, who likes to {Read More}

Mamaway Young Mummy Nursing Maternity Top

Deciding to breastfeed my daughter was wonderful and it felt right for me. I wasn’t sure how long I’d feed her for but she is now coming up to 11 months and I’ve exclusively breast fed her. I feel so proud of the fact I’ve been able to, especially when returning to work 7 weeks ago! It was hard to find the time to express and to feel comfortable enough to get a good let down but I did it {Read More}

Lorna Drew Adjustable Nursing Bra in Cotton Rose

I’ve been breastfeeding my daughter for the last 10 months and I think I’ve had more bras in 10 months than I have in the last 3 years! It’s amazing how much your breasts change on a monthly/weekly/daily basis when breastfeeding. Even though there are many different nursing bras on the high street to choose from, I hadn’t found any that were as pretty as normal bras; this was until I saw Lorna Drew Nursing Bras. Even the everyday essential {Read More}
