Sponsored | Weaning with Vital Baby

If I am brutally honest here, I have found the whole weaning / food process so flipping difficult. It wasn’t so difficult when Edie and Mabel first started with solids and would happily chomp away pulling funny faces but as they got older, there have been days where I would have happily ran away. I think in hindsight the problem was more to do with me than them, as they’ve grown so slowly and I’ve always been a little bit paranoid about this. I have friends who have three month old babies who weigh more than them and this always…

Travel with Twins – Walt Disney World

The first time we flew abroad with the twins, they were only seven months old and I was really anxious. I worried about carrying milk through security and how many nappies I needed to take to see me through the week… it turned out I didn’t really need to worry at all. It was certainly different to holiday’s we’ve had pre-children but it wasn’t a bad experience. Since our week in the Canaries went so well, we took several stay-cations and road trips in the UK with the girls and my confidence traveling with them sky rocketed. So after a…

My great car seat debate…

I had very little knowledge of car seats when I was pregnant and to be perfectly honest, I still don’t. I find the whole combination, stage 0, 1, 2, 3 thing really confusing and I ended up buying a pair of Maxi Cosi Pebble seats for when the twins first arrived. The reasons why I bought them; I knew that the Bugaboo I’d bought came with a Maxi Cosi adapter and there was a really good deal on at Mamas and Papas which included free rain covers and backseat mirrors. When the girls were here, I’d posted a picture of…

Our Favourite Books

My mum read to me from been born and as a child I had the wildest imagination. My parents used to laugh because I was such a creative storyteller and they were convinced that one day I’d write books. I vividly remember some of the strange stories I played as a youngster and the imaginary games I used to come with. As an adult, I could always see what a massive investment reading to a child could be and although I never knew I was going to have children, I did know that when I did, that we would read…

Sponsored | myHummy Sleeping Aid Review

After the four month sleep regression, Edie and Mabel were brilliant sleepers. We have a really lovely hour’ish long routine where they start by having a bath at 6pm, pj’s and a bottle by 6.30pm and go down to sleep awake but drowsy in their own cots by 7pm. It’s like clockwork and they did (emphasis on did) sleep 7pm till 7am for a long time… It all started to go a bit fuzzy around their first birthday when they weren’t very well and they went through some sort of 12 month nap regression. We kept our bedtime routine the…
