Last week I wrote about the GFCF diet including what it was, why it is supposed to help and foods to avoid. In the future, I will share some of the brands and recipes I have found which are both gluten and dairy free.
Today I want to talk about the signs that made us try the GFCF diet and improvements we have seen since. Like I mentioned in the last post I cannot say that this diet will have the same results for you as we achieved. (more…)
Here, my friends is why I don’t co-sleep! I love the idea of co-sleeping, all the lovely pics of parents snuggled up with their little ones and that quality bonding time. However, in my house, the reality is far from that! (more…)
October is a crazy month for us. It seems we have things planned for the entire month so I am trying to get the boys Halloween costumes sorted early. I haven’t decided what to dress them as yet (although everyone says Finn should be a pumpkin because, yano, the hair.). Here are some of the super adorable kids costumes I found online… (more…)
Previously, I mentioned that we had changed Aidan’s diet in the past few months. I came across the GFCF diet purely by accident and decided to give it a go. It is a struggle to find too many resources on the GFCF lifestyle other than a handful of websites. So, I decided to talk a little bit about it on the blog to help any other parents who may be thinking of giving it a try. (more…)
I admit I’ve been putting off this post for a while. Why? I’m really not sure but I guess I wasn’t sure if I was ready to share it with the world yet. (Pfft as if the whole world reads my blog!). (more…)
Like most parents, I tend to put myself at the bottom of the pile. I usually sort the kids, the dinner, the laundry, the house and then fall into bed. A few weeks ago, I attended the Deise blogger event and was given a very generous goody bag (actually 5 generous goody bags!). As the event was more beauty and skincare than parenting I came home with lots of new products for me – something I am not used to! I decided to give myself some pamper time and try out a few things.
I was contacted by the lovely people at Chicco a few weeks ago and told about the new bottle range they were about to launch – the Chicco Natural Feeling range. (more…)
I think everyone turns to Pinterest when looking for decor ideas (or new hairstyles/baking/makeup/crafts/everything else). Many lost hours have been spent in the never-ending hole of house goals. I do put a lot of effort into one room though – the boy’s playroom. I tend to lean towards the fun and colourful designs. Here are some of the photos in my Playroom Pinspiration board… (more…)
I spoke before about Aidan’s love for his iPad and how he could put on his own cartoons from 18 months – one of my proudest achievements to date! A few weeks ago the people from Kidloland got in touch and thought Aidan might enjoy their app.
Kidloland is a free app, available on Apple store, Google play store and Amazon store, which comes with a selection of free songs and games. However, for a subscription fee you gain access to over 490 nursery rhymes, songs and games. Aimed at preschool kids, Kidloland has games which help with their motor skills, sorting, memory and much more. Using bright colours, interactive animals and songs it is bound to keep your child entertained for hours. (more…)
In my recent ‘Top 5 summer essentials‘ post, I mentioned our new favourite sun cream from Childs Farm. Up to now, I thought all sun creams done the same job so just pick one with a high factor. I was wrong. (more…)
