The Reality of Having Premature Twins: My Story for World Prematurity Day

Today is World Prematurity Day. A global movement to raise awareness of premature birth and the devastating impact it can have on families. I previously worked with Pampers when they first launched their nappies for premature babies. Read about this here. I’m pleased to be working with Pampers again to highlight World Prematurity Day. Did you know that approximately 60,000 babies are born prematurely in the UK every year? That’s roughly 1 in 11 of all births. With so many babies being born too soon, it’s reassuring to know that the survival rate of premature babies in the UK is… [Read More]

Pampers Preemie Nappy

I’ve always known that I wanted to be a mum. When I was little I used to collect baby dolls and pretend that they were real. I’d put nappies on them, dress them up for the day and then change them into their pyjamas at night time. Most of them would ‘sleep’ at the foot of my bed, but I’d always make sure I cuddled one at night time. When I thought about being a mummy, I imagined pushing them in the swing at the park, giving them lots of cuddles and singing songs to them. As I grew older and… [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]

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]

Pot of Gold Baby Balm Review

Having two babies with occasional nappy rash, I was delighted to have been given the opportunity to review this 100% natural baby balm with guilt free ingredients.  I was going to wait a week before I wrote this review to give it a chance to work, but to be honest with you after using Pot of Gold Baby Balm for 2 days, I noticed an almost immediate difference.  I decided to use my normal baby cream on one of our girls and this baby balm on our other girl. After 2 days of using Pot of Gold Baby Balm I… [Read More]

My Essential Baby Buys

From nappy dispensers to potty mitts (seriously, they do exist!), I thought I would put together a list of baby items that I think are essential. I will also mention a few items which I wish I hadn’t bought, mainly because they haven’t been used. Essential Buys: * Angelcare Sound and Movement Sensor for peace of mind at nightime  * Asda Little Angels Fitted Cot & Moses Basket Sheets. These are very good quality and even better value for money * Lanisoh Nipple Cream. Expressing or breastfeeding this was my saviour!  * Asda own brand maternity pads * Asda own… [Read More]

Our First Swimming Trip

From the moment we brought our twin girls home from hospital, I have been desperate to take them swimming. Today was that day! What to take with you for baby: * A swimming costume or baby wetsuit * Swim nappies * Baby’s normal nappies * Baby lotion * Hooded Towel for baby * Baby sleep suit & vest * Baby Blanket * Baby’s milk I was unsure about what sort of swim wear to buy for our girls. A wet suit type outfit or normal baby swimming costume. In the end I opted for the wet suit type and I’m… [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. I have to admit, before I was given this opportunity by Ami, I’d heard of nappy cakes but I had absolutely no idea what they were. When it arrived beautifully packaged and topped with a pink bow, I was eager to have a look inside. Opening the… [Read More]
