Baby Born: The one!

Review originally written December 2016. It’s no secret I am an advocate for baby wearing. Keeping your baby close during the first 6 months of their life is essential in developing that secure attachment and bond that will ensure your child feels loved and safe. Carrying Florence was my saviour, she had colic for 3…

Cosatto Pixelate car seat: One big hug

Buying anything for your little ones can be like trying to navigate a maze whist trying to heard a tribe of ducklings back to their mama. Its a tad frustrating, very confusing and you often get pulled in more than one direction. However, buying a car seat is like adding a fox into the mix, as…

Do we really need mummy bloggers?

When I started blogging, I didn’t know what to expect. Sharing my life (our lives) online was a difficult decision that I didn’t make with haste. It took me a while, I dreaded that I would be called out as a bad mum or that I wasn’t good enough to be a blogger. But… I…

OptiBac Probiotics: Gut love

I started using ObtiBac Probiotics 3 years ago, after a dreadful breakout of adult acne. I have never really had spots (apart from the odd one) but after a stressful return to work after maternity leave and my face showed the stress. For anyone who doesn’t know of Caroline Hirons, then you HAVE to go…

It’s a bing thing

If, like us, you have a small catalogue of ‘go to’ kid friendly programmes that without fail give you 10 minutes to wash up/brush your hair in peace and you are looking for another, then check Bing out. Bing bunny is an animated show made by acamar films, for preschoolers which is shown on cbeebies….

Threenager: Do you have one?

Before having children, I would laugh at the parents who had made up their own language to describe certain things about children. Threenager was one of them. Who would describe a lovely little 3 year old as being as emotionally challenging as a teenager? Not me, nooooo. Never. They are surely just cute little people…

Hello sunshine! Bax and bay rucksack

Just in time for spring, Bax and Bay have released their waxed cotton yellow zack backpack. For the lovers of yellow, you will have noticed this ray of sunshine on my instagram feed recently. I have been enjoying this waxed cotton yellow beauty from Bax and Bay for the past few weeks, and so here…

Alternative Easter ideas and Competition from Burble baby

Most of you will be aware that in the freckle house, we are completely dairy and egg free. As our eldest daughter has dairy and egg anaphylaxis, Easter is the most difficult holiday for us and if I am completely honest fills me with fear. This might sound like an eggs-aggeration (sorry, that was a shocking pun)…

Shop small: Burp Boutique

As a whole, we try and support small businesses where possible. So I though I would share with you some lovely shops who have either reached out to me or that I have found on Instagram. Burp Boutique is a lovely little online shop run by Kate. Apart from the fact Kate is so bloody…

Breastfeeding tales: breastpads and mum pats

Picture the scene. It’s 2:06am, I have woken up to the baby in the co-sleeper upside down (you know the WRONG way round) and the 3 year old lay horizontal in between myself and a snoring husband. I, of course had the feet of the said 3 year old neatly positioned into my spine where…

Review: KeriKit Joy leather changing bag

Without a doubt, the Joy backpack is the most luxurious changing bag I have ever owned. It is a bag for every occasion, not just for use as a changing bag. The leather is so supple and beautifully crafted, with stitching that is so perfect that it almost outshines the level of utility. If you…
