Potty Training – Initial Thoughts

LP is now 25 months old and at the stage where a lot of her friends are starting on their potty training journey. This has made us start considering potty training too although I am more than sceptical. LP knows when she’s been to the toilet, and she is starting to tell us when she needs to go. She knows the difference between a wee-wee and a be-boo and knows…

Snooze Baby Sweet Dreaming Comfort Toy Review

I never used any kind of comfort blanket or comfort toy with LP. She was never a very sucky/chewy baby and she didn’t really get attached to any of her toys or anything – they were all loved for 5 minutes before she would move on to the next one!

I am also planning on using the TV as entertainment for LP before her bath while I put LM to bed in the evening when Hubby’s at work. Occasional TV is…

Joe Browns Clothing Review

Joe Browns have been my favourite clothing label for my entire adult life. I often tweet about how great they are, tweet to let everyone know of any sales and basically rave about them to anyone who will listen. When did we first come across Joe Browns clothing? I first came across Joe Browns back in 2004. I was 19, met Hubby 3 months before and we were going on…

Sleep and Early Mornings

I had an epiphany this morning to do with sleep and I thought I’d tell you about it. But I need to start at the beginning. I have no idea what my sleep was like as a baby or toddler, the earliest I can remember is being at Primary School and getting dragged out of bed bleary eyed to get ready. School years were full of alarm clocks, early wake…
