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 I {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}

Sa-Be Baby Carrier

If you love wearing your baby, you’ll really love the Sa-Be Baby Carrier. Having used another carrier with my own little one, it took a while to get used to the difference of the Sa-Be Carrier. The Sa-Be Carrier tubular design and 100% cotton material mean it’s a lot more ridged than other brands and while this took a lot of getting used to, it was a lot more effective in the long run as it didn’t sag after wearing {Read More}

BabyBjörn Baby Carrier Active

This baby carrier has its critics, but it has been one of my best baby buys! They say that it can be used from newborn but baby has to weigh at least 8 lbs/3.5 kg, so we couldn’t use it straightaway as our baby was only 6 lbs when she was born! We couldn’t wait to try it out as soon as she was big enough, and in the early days I used it almost daily mainly at home when {Read More}

Mothercare My Brest Friend Maternity Pillow

I was struggling with breastfeeding (like many new mums) and after trying to manoeuvre various cushions and pillows to support me, and failing, my husband decided to buy me the Mothercare My Brest Friend Maternity Pillow as it was advertised as five star out of five. The pillow is very pricey at £44.99. It features a stripy design with bumps to support baby’s head, a ‘silent release strap that adjusts naturally to all shapes and sizes’ and a pocket to hold {Read More}

Medela Single Mini Electric Breastpump

A friend recommended the Medela Single Mini Electric Breastpump to me when I was pregnant and intending to breastfeed my baby but wanted to have the option of bottle-feeding occasionally using expressed breast milk.  I had heard that Medela were a reputable and trusted brand used in hospitals.  The Mini Electric was developed for short-term or occasional use at home with the mains supply or when on the go with batteries. The design is compact and easy to use and {Read More}

Bebe Au Lait Nursing Cover

Available in lots of designs, I liked the subtlety of the Bebe Au Lait nursing covers.  It retails at about £27.50, is available in 20 designs and comes with a rigid neckline allowing for ventilation and easy visibility of your baby.  The corners have pockets for storing pads or pacifiers and are made from terrycloth in case of emergency reflux clear up (very useful!) I was struggling to breastfeed in public and wanted a nursing cover that was discreet.  I {Read More}
