Babymel Robyn Navy Changing Bag Review from Kiddies Kingdom

When our twins were babies, my husband and I went through numerous changing bags. Some were too small, others too big. Some fitted our double pushchair perfectly, whilst others just got in the way. It’s true that finding the right changing bag for you and your little ones can take time. Our twin girls are six years old now, but that doesn’t mean we no longer need a changing bag. Although, they’re no longer in nappies, and don’t drink from bottles anymore, day trips still mean that we need a bag capable of carrying enough for twins. This includes lunch boxes,… [Read More]

Leisure Centre Changing Rooms

A friend of mine recently gave me an idea for a blog post surrounding leisure centre changing rooms and she makes a very valid point. On a recent visit to a leisure centre run by our local council she found a man in the female changing rooms with his daughter. One of the mums in the changing expressed her concerns about him being in the female changing room, but he said that he didn’t want to take his young daughter into the men’s changing rooms. I can completely understood his point. When my husband and I take our twin girls… [Read More]

Caboodle Everyday Changing Bag Review

As a mum of twins my changing bag is fit to burst. Although my girls are three years old I still use a changing bag everyday and it’s always full, with hardly any room to spare. With that in mind it’s important to me that a changing bag is both spacious and durable. The contents of my changing bag usually consists of: Folding portable potty  Two complete spare changes of clothes (2 pairs of leggings, 2 tops, 2 pairs of socks, 2 pairs of knickers) Two drink bottles Some snacks (crisps, fruit etc) My purse and keys In addition to… [Read More]

How to survive and thrive with twins

Discovering that you’re having twins for the very first time can be quite a scary prospect for most expectant parents. For my husband and I though we knew as soon as we found out that we were pregnant that we would be having twins. This is because my we had a type of IVF known as ICSI. We were lucky that we had a total of nine embryos that fertilised successfully. After discussing our options we decided that we would freeze seven of those embryos and have two transferred back into me. I know it may sound a little conceited… [Read More]

BabyBeau Sophia Changing Bag Review

It’s the must have, essential item that every parent needs. They come in all shapes and sizes in a variety of wonderful designs and colours. What am I talking about? Changing bags of course! BabyBeau was born when mumpreneur, Rebecca Gono discovered a gap in the market for changing bags that didn’t merely serve their purpose, but looked great and enabled a life beyond the baby years. The first changing bag I bought was £15.00 from a supermarket. Suffice to say it didn’t last very long and if I’m honest with you it looked more like something you’d store your… [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 was like a kid on Christmas morning! We chose to review the Bumble Bees and Stardust Twins Bag. Upon opening the box… [Read More]

Toddler Beds: When is the right time to change?

Image courtesy of greenphile/freedigitalphotos.net I often wonder what age I should help our twins make the transition from cot to toddler bed. I guess the first thing we need to ensure before we do anything is that both girls are sleeping through the night in their own cots. R, is well on her way to achieving this. The only time she will share the bed with us is if she ill. R goes in her cot around 7pm and although she cries out during the night if she has lost her dummy, all I have to do is give her,… [Read More]
