Baby Diaries #4 – Colic and Reflux

Last week we took baby dottie to see a cranial osteopath to help with her colic and reflux. Plus try and help her posture as she’s always a little scrumped up towards the right. Although she was a c section baby she was forceps delivered as she had sunk really far down into my pelvis. These left a little bruise above her left eye and a little bloodshot eye. All of this has contributed to her head and neck muscles being tight.

Knowing What to Expect On The First Day Of Preschool

The first day that your child attends preschool can be very tough on both the children and parents. It will likely be the first time that you and your child have been away from each other for a daily set period of time, and it can be just as nerve-wracking for a parent as it is for the child. However uncomfortable this feeling may seem, it is something that parents and children must get used to as a daily routine, and one that will continue through the years.

Knowing What to Expect On The First Day Of Preschool

We’ve put together this brief guide so that you can know what to expect on the first day that your child attends preschool to help try and alleviate some of the anxieties.

What Is Good And Bad With A Debt Agreement

If you have experienced financial difficulties, you know that you could spend a huge amount of time on worrying while trying to deal with these situations. It often feels like you are alone and isolated and not sure which way to turn. Some companies can help you no matter what financial situation you are in, and if you are unable to get a consolidation loan, you may need to think about creating a debt agreement with your creditors. However, this solution is not always the best for everyone as there may be other methods more suited, and there are also consequences when you take out this type of loan.

Top Fashion Accessories for Summer 2018

A few months back I wrote about the key fashion trends for women for Summer 2018 and how it was all about 80’s style neon, colour pop and frizzy hair. Well I never got the chance to go into the top fashion accessories that you will need this Summer. We all like to keep up with the trend, even if it’s just with accessories.

Top Fashion Accessories for Summer 2018 (1)

Accessories for your Summer look, does come in the form of the bumbag this year, yep the 80’s are here! I must admit as a kid I loved my bumbag. I carried all sorts of things in it. The less obvious would be a belt bag. You can get some really lovely leather ones which would smarten up any outfit. If you are heading to the beach lots over the course of the Summer you will need a gorgeous woven leather bag or a tote bag. The oversize large bags are perfect for this and one of the top key trends for Summer 2018.

The idea behind Living Arrows is to celebrate childhood. It’s name is taken from a poem by Kahlil Gibran,

What’s New in the World of Eco-Friendly Feminine Hygiene Products?

Today on the blog I have a post from Jackie over at Reusable Menstrual Cups, sharing with us the new on the market eco-friendly feminine hygiene products. As you know I had a baby 9 weeks ago so haven’t had to think about sanitary towels or things for a long time. As my body is settling down now I’m sure my period will be here within a few months (At least by breastfeeding it stalls it for a time!)

Beyond Sanitary Pads and Tampons

20 years ago, there were very few choices for period products. They mostly consisted of pads and tampons. Sure, a few people were using eco-friendly things like sea sponge tampons, or the original, modern-day menstrual cup (the Keeper), or sewing their own cloth pads, but they were the exceptions.

These days, menstrual cups are far more popular and there are an abundance of choices for things like cloth pads and organic disposables. I’ll share a few of the new things happening in the world of eco-friendly feminine products including more choices for menstrual cups, a reusable option for period sex, premium cloth pads, and organic disposables.
