Eco-Friendly Nappies: Bambo Nature Nappy Review and Giveaway

These past few weeks we have been trying out the Bambo Nature nappies. Since having my daughter over two years ago we have tried and tested many nappy brands to find the right ones for us. In fact until I was contacted by Bambo Nature I’d never heard of them, so I’m sharing our experiences with these eco-friendly nappies with you as a first time user.

I will let you know now before I get into the review that they are amazingly soft and I don’t know how I havent found these nappies before!

Floral Initial Baby Print Review

Since we moved house last year, I have been looking around for prints, photos and pictures for my daughters room. We obviously left behind her decorated nursery which was fine for the first 18 months of her life, but since we moved here we haven’t decorated her room with the baby stick on stickers.

So the opportunity to have a print designed for her was great. Created by Magic sent us this gorgeous floral Initial baby print, all with her birth details on. All I had to do was send the correct details, like her first name, date of birth, hospital, weight and time of birth over to them and by magic! The print arrived in the post!

Baby Gift Guide and Useful Items for Mums

In 8 weeks time our new baby girl will be here. This pregnancy has gone so much faster than the first. Maybe it’s because I’m running around after a 2 year old. These past few weeks I’ve been putting together this baby gift guide and useful items for mums.

There are ideas of things to buy a newborn for a gift and also items for mum as well. I’ve been getting lots of inspiration by chatting to wonderful work colleague who is expecting her first in a few weeks, and also my younger sister who is also expecting her second child and due only 2 weeks before me. There are babies everywhere! Must be something in the water!

Baby Gift Guide

These are things that would make lovely gifts for a baby.

General Relativity for babies

Being a bit of a science geek, I couldn’t resist this adorable babies’ book. It’s a hard board book with wipe clean surfaces. Bold illustrations with simple words. Great for getting a head start on Science! Other books in the series include Rocket Science and Quantum Physics. The book also comes in a cute woodland animals cloth bag.

The Sunday Pregnancy Diaries: #5

Hello, here I am again with another Sunday pregnancy diary entry. Last week’s was all about organising my maternity leave through work. This week I had the pleasure of going to have a Glucose Tolerance Test (GTT) done as I’m at the 26 weeks mark.

I had one a couple of years ago with baby girl and the results were all fine with that one. As I’m writing this I still have yet to get the results back.

The Sunday Pregnancy Diaries #4

Welcome back to my next installment of The Sunday Pregnancy Diaries #4. You can catch up with last weeks here. This week sees me at 25 weeks so only 15 weeks until my due date. To be honest because I’m having the baby at 39 weeks as planned the due date doesn’t mean much to me at the moment. Anyway as I’m at the 15 weeks point before my due date this week work needs to know what I plan to do.

With baby girl I left pretty early at 32 weeks. Partly because it was December and working in retail is hell at this time of year. Secondly I still had nearly 5 weeks of holiday to take which I took before my maternity leave started. Then of course baby girl decided not to come and arrived at 42 weeks. That time before she came I kept myself busy with blogging, reading and preparing for a new baby.
