Tommee Tippee Active Sipper Bottle

I think our girls have a bit of an obsession with bottles! We have lots! Different shapes, sizes and colours! We were recently sent two Tommee Tippee Active Sipper Bottles to review.  The problem I’ve found with most of the bottles that we have is that our girls like to chew and bite the rubber on them! This means they quite often leak and pour out. The thing that I like most about these bottles is that even if the spout is chewed it won’t break. The Active Sipper has a sipper spout. It’s designed to help toddlers practise open-cup… [Read More]

Pill Hot Water Bottle Review

Over the course of my life I have used various types and sizes of hot water bottles for a number of different reasons. Sometimes to aid an achy belly and other times just to keep warm. I was recently sent the Pill Hot Water Bottle to review and I love it! It’s actually an award winning hot water bottle as it won the 2013 Design Plus and 2013 Solutions Awards. This neoprene hot water bottle is said to be like no other hot water bottle on the market. It’s made from the same material used to make wet suits. This means it… [Read More]

Pink Lining Twins Changing Bag Review

When I was given the opportunity to review a changing bag from Pink Lining I jumped at the chance!  Pink Lining provides the most stylish and functional changing bags, maternity bags and baby bags for new mums. I think the postman thought I was loopy when he turned up at my doorstop and I did a little dance on my front step! I’d seen the Pink Logo on the box he was carrying before he got to the front door! I was like a kid on Christmas morning! We chose to review the Bumble Bees and Stardust Twins Bag. Upon opening the box… [Read More]

Pacific Baby: Thermal Baby Bottle Review

I was recently sent two thermal baby bottles by Pacific Baby to review. These bottles look great and also work really well. Each bottle comes with a slow flow silicone teat and a BPA-free bottle ring. The bottle and cap are made from stainless steel. The main thing I love about these bottles is that on the inside it has a scale of measurement so you can see exactly how much milk you have put into the bottle. The milk stays warm for up to 10 hours and is suitable from birth to 5 years. The other great thing about… [Read More]

13 Months Old: Sleep Update

I haven’t blogged properly for a while because myself and the twins have been ill. So, I thought today I would give you an update on the girls sleep. We’ll start off with daytime naps. They have two. The first at 9am. R has around 30 minutes, whereas M varies between 30-60 minutes. I don’t let them sleep past 10am as this then impacts their second nap, which is straight after lunch at 1230pm and both girls have 90 minutes. Sounds ok you might think? Well in theory yes but in reality…no! Why? We are still swaddling and rocking both… [Read More]

What happened to sleep?

I have heard a number of times over the last few weeks from lots of different women, that mums who say their baby sleeps through the night must be lying. Our twin girls have always slept through the night and have done so from about 10 weeks of age. I don’t know why. We didn’t do anything special other than introducing a bedtime routine of bath, swaddle, bottle and bed.  Maybe it comes down to their days in special care? The first 27 days of their lives were spent in hospital. At night time, the light was always on and… [Read More]

Questions For My Mum

Since becoming a mum I have found myself thinking about my mum more and more. Don’t get me wrong, before our twins were born I would often think about my mum. I would relive memories of her in my mind. One of my favourite memories of my mum was on holiday, Spain, I think. My dad, sister, mum and me went to a water park and I always remember my mum on this one water slide. You could hear her scream from miles away and as she left the slide and splashed into the water, she stood up and the… [Read More]

MAM Starter Cup Review

I was delighted to have recently been given the opportunity to review the MAM starter cup.  We started weaning our twins around 2 months ago and at the same time introduced a ‘first’ cup to our girls which we filled with water. They have this with each of their 3 meals a day.  The MAM starter cup is small and light making it perfect for small hands to hold. This cup is ideal for children from four months and it holds up to 150ml.  The handles are non-slip and the spout is extra soft so it feels good to babies… [Read More]

A Day in the Life of a Twin Mum

Being twin parents is hard and tiring, but we love it. Yes, we have days where all we seem to do is change nappies and console crying babies, but then we have other days where our babies just play, smile and laugh together. I thought I would write a post about my day as a twin mum! Morning 05:30    Twin Daddy wakes and makes a bottle each for R and M. M’s first bottle of the day includes ‘Ranitidine’ which is prescribed for her silent reflux. Every bottle M has, also contains one dose of infant gaviscon, again for… [Read More]
