When thoughts turn to holidays…

With thoughts of going on our first holiday since Isabella was born, my thoughts have not turned to swimwear and armbands! I haven’t even booked the holiday yet but already I’m internet shopping/browsing to see what’s available and what I might need to buy to keep my toddler safe, especially if she’s going to swim.   The first thing I thought about was the sun suits you can buy; I don’t know about your little one but I can’t imagine {Read More}

Aylesbury Aqua Vale Swimming

We love swimming but the small training pool we were using was beginning to lose its appeal as there wasn’t much to look at or do except splash about. This would have been absolutely fine but because there wasn’t a lot to do, we were only in the pool around 20 minutes and it cost around £7 which I think is quite a lot. When a friend recommended Aqua Vale at Aylesbury, I initially thought it was quite a way {Read More}

Tiny Talk Baby Signing

I first got the idea about signing with my little one from one of the Baby Sensory classes I attended with my daughter. I really liked the idea of being able to communicate with my daughter and understand her needs and wants before she could talk so I looked into a few baby signing classes. I came across Tiny Talk and they are one of the only baby signing classes who actually use British Sign Language which I thought was {Read More}

Take your little one to Winter Wonderland

A fun family day out in Winter Wonderland, Hyde Park. Because my baby is still so small, this trip was more for me and the hubby… ok, just me, but we all had a great day. We went on Monday and it wasn’t too busy at all. There was a great atmosphere and has helped to make baby’s first Christmas that little bit more special. We were going to travel by train but decided to would be just as cheap/expensive {Read More}

Parent and Baby Cinema

Do you feel like you don’t get the chance to see any of the latest releases? Then why not take your little one to the cinema? Empire Cinema (High Wycombe-as well as a few others) have a parent and baby screening on a Monday morning at 11am. It’s a relaxed setting with the lights up and the sound softened and somewhere no one minds if you need to feed or change your baby during the film. Admittedly you see more {Read More}

Baby Swimming

I really wanted to take my baby swimming and started a quest to find a baby friendly pool in the High Wycombe area. We found that Parkwood Community Leisure Centre were baby friendly and very helpful. We phoned in advance and the leisure centre confirmed that we could take our baby into a shallower, warmer teaching pool. So while daddy was on holiday from work, we had our first baby swimming experience together as a family. Being a leisure card {Read More}

Baby Sensory

Going from working in a busy school five days a week to staying at home looking after my daughter was a bit of a shock. While I absolutely love being at home with Isabella, I missed the adult contact and interaction I got from work so I started to research baby classes that I could join. After a lot of research, I found Baby Sensory which is a sensory programme which is suitable from birth. It not only looked like {Read More}
