Naps… Or Lack Of

LP never used to sleep. It took hours of rocking and shushing and pacing and crying and pleading and hoping and hugging and more to get her to sleep until she started sleeping through at about 15 months old. LP then slept religiously from 7:30pm until 8:30am every night, hardly ever needing to be settled again. She would also have a two hour nap every day after her lunch. This…

Little Man’s Teething Hell

Little Man had been out of sorts for a little while – grouchy, snotty, waking up even more often that usual through the night. He had turned into ‘someone else’s baby’ – the one that winges solidly and never settles, cries constantly and won’t let you put them down. Our Little Man wasn’t a baby we recognised.

The concept of the Babymoov Booster Seat is that rather than a high chair the child is sat on a dining chair with the help of the booster seat. The booster seat has…

Trolley Time for Two – The Ordinary Moments

I always used to enjoy going food shopping with LP. It was time for her and I to have a wander, have a chat and sing songs as we were going up and down the aisles with her in her trolley. We’d play row the boat as I pushed her round and we’d sing Old Macdonald. She’d say bye to each aisle as we turned to go into the next…
