A heartfelt thank you to NICU Nurses on International Nurses Day #ad

Today is International Nurses Day. #IND2017 A day that I simply cannot let pass me by without saying a massive, heartfelt thank you to the NICU nurses who helped care for our twin girls when they were born six weeks early. Following on from my post about Pampers Preemie Protection nappies, I wanted to take a moment to thank the nurses that helped our daughters, as well as my husband and I during the difficult time that our girls spent on the neonatal unit. NICU nurses are truly amazing. Not only do they witness just how delicate life can be, they… [Read More]

Night time potty training

It official! Potty training in our house is officially over and done with for now! Both of our girls are fully potty trained in the day. I wasn’t in a rush to potty train them and I would have quite happily waited until they were three before I even thought about potty training, but our girls started showing signs that they were ready around two years and a few months. I’ve heard that boys can take longer than girls to potty train so if you’re reading this and worrying about when the right time to start is – stop worrying! Do you know any… [Read More]

Potty Training Twins

Potty training twins? Where do I start?! That’s what I thought when the idea first popped into my head! I didn’t worry too much about it though and decided to take it all in my stride. One thing I knew for definite was that I wanted to wait until our girls were at least two years old. I’d heard that before this age children don’t have the ability to control their bowels. Plus if you start when your child is too young or if they aren’t ready it can end up being more stressful for you both and can take… [Read More]

Potty Training

For a number of months now I have been thinking about potty training and when we should start. I’ve read numerous things on different parenting websites and on social media, but in truth I don’t know where to begin.   The only thing I do know is that I want to wait as long as possible. I want to wait until our girls have passed their second birthday which is in February. One of the things I have heard over and over again is that if you start too soon, when you’re children are too young or when they’re simply… [Read More]

Beebies Baby Store Review

I was recently delighted to be offered the chance to review a 1 tier nappy cake for Beebies Baby Store. Beebies Baby Store is run by 18 year old Ami Holt in Kent. She provides high quality, affordable baby products in the UK. For more information about Beebies Baby Store please click here.
