I haven’t wrote a post in a while so I thought it was about time I pulled my finger out! A lot has happened since I wrote my last blog post, we moved house, we went to Lauren’s wedding, welcomed Beau, Nico and Margot into the cubs and us gang and Zach turned two! I won’t… Continue reading Raising a Twoligan
We all know that rear facing car seats are safest for newborns, and the UK government now advise that all babies should be kept rear facing until they are at least 15 months old. This means that 15 months is the absolute minimum age a child should be turned to forward face, but many parents misunderstand this to mean that once a child is 15 months a forward facing seat is just as safe if not safer. The fact is even after your baby reaches 15 months, rear facing remains safer.
It’s no secret to the people closest to me that one of the main stresses in my life the past year has been Tom`s eating, or lack of eating as would be more accurate. So when I recently had the opportunity to review the latest in Sarah Ockwell-Smiths gentle parenting series “The Gentle Eating Book” I jumped at the chance!
As we all know I absolutely love buying new clothes for Zach and may have a ‘slight’ (massive) shopping problem, I’ve found myself buying clothes for him that seem to push a few boundaries because they’re quite risky and to be honest, absolutely hilarious. When I say innapropriate clothes I mean the slogans on tees… Continue reading Innapropriate Kids Clothes & Why I Love Them..
We had the most amazing week away at Center Parcs in September. We visited the Whinfell forest site in Cumbria and Thomas loved the whole trip so much that even though we've only just finished unpacking and putting our cases away I've already booked to go back next year! My favourite thing about Center Parcs… Continue reading Tackling Center Parcs With A Toddler
Over the last few months we have been lucky enough to try out the new transitions range from OXO TOT along with a few other oxo tot goodies that have become must haves in our house.
I think it’s safe to say we are obsessed with Tulas! If you follow us on Instagram you’ve no doubt seen our Tula spam, we use a few different baby carriers but for me nothing compares to the ease and comfort of a Tula!
Tom’s bedroom is by far my favourite room in the house, maybe because it’s the only room that’s ever tidy and not packed full of clutter. Plus, it’s the only 100% baby-proof room where I can let Tom go wild and be absolutely sure he’s not going to lose an eye! I actually get to… Continue reading Tom`s Little Man Cave

Now don’t get me wrong I loved our old babystyle prestige, it was and still remains my dream pram, its beautiful, no questions about that, but there are certain elements of the babystyle… Continue reading ICandy Peach Review
On Monday the cub mamas were given exclusive access to a special VIP taster night for Bendelow's Kitchen. It was hosted in the swanky Gin & Cocktail bar The Artizan on Roman road. Luckily for us babes in arms were welcome so Margot, Beau & Nico joined us too. Unfortunately Catherine was working so she… Continue reading Bendelow’s Kitchen @ The Artizan
On Friday 23rd March 2018 Margot Betsy Taylor arrived earthside. We had planned a home birth. I feel like the world is full of negative birth stories. Unfortunately things don't always go right. But I think it's important to share that birth can certainly be a positive and amazing experience. I think a positive mind… Continue reading Margot – Our Home Birth Story
So Isaac was the first of the cubs to become a big brother! His little sister Beau arrived safely on 22nd december. In the run up to having Beau I was worried Isaac (who is a mammy's boy) would struggle with having to share me, but he has made me so proud. He patiently waits… Continue reading Adjusting to life with a toddler and a new born!
