Bringing Pearl home with Britax Römer – plus win a DUALFIX i-SIZE car seat!

Weaning: Why our children are vegetarians #NoJunkJourney

Post written in paid partnership with Organix I’ve shared a huge amount of our weaning journey with Violet on the blog, but I’ve not ever talked about our decision to raise our children as vegetarians, so I thought I’d chat about this today. This isn’t just about not eating meat…

Two Under Two Diaries: Our First Month Together

After a whirlwind few weeks, Pearl turns one month old today. Can you believe it? I feel like I always say that about my children’s milestones, but honestly I can’t believe how quickly the time has gone this time! Does it speed up every time you have a baby? It’s…

Review: Mutsy Nexo Stroller

Now Violet is a little bit older at nearly EIGHTEEN MONTHS (😱) it’s been amazing to finally upgrade our travel system to a lightweight stroller. No more loading multiple parts of a heavy pram into the boot of the car, this is one of the lightest, easiest strollers I’ve ever…

Weaning: 5 Things I’d do differently next time

I’m sure you’ve seen my recent posts (mainly of frustration!) around weaning Violet and her journey with eating. She is not a big eater and is extremely fussy, which has been a real surprise to me. I naively thought as I eat a huge variety of foods, flavours and spices,…

Review: Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Range

Just recently I’ve noticed a difference in the way that Violet plays with her toys. As she is 18 months now, she’s started to understand exactly how to play with each toy and what it does, rather than just being attracted to pretty shapes, colours or textures. With the new…
