For mums across the country, this is one of the most important days of the year. Far bigger than Valentine’s Day (too cheesy), their birthday (too much focus on… View Post

Weaning – everything you’ll possibly need to start your baby on solids

There’s no denying the signs. He’s no longer fully satisfied by a bottle. He shoves anything and everything he can get his little hands on into his mouth. He gazes longingly at you anytime you dare to eat in his vicinity. It can only mean one thing…it’s time to start our weaning journey and introduce this baba to big boy food! It’s Sod’s law really. Just as you get used to one new routine, it all changes. No longer can you just get by with two boobs, a… View Post

Merino wool: the wonder fabric all new parents need to know about

As an adult, I’ve long been aware of the amazing comfort and luxury of merino wool. But it was only after becoming a parent that I discovered all the truly magical and varied benefits that merino also offers for our babies. Let me explain… As you’ve probably heard, temperature control is seriously important when it comes to newborns. You see, tiny babies are unable to regulate their body temperature in the same way that adults do, and can lose heat as much as four times quicker than grown… View Post

5 thoroughly thoughtful gifts that all new parents will love

There’s nothing quite like the arrival of a baby to make you realise just how generous your friends and family are. After the birth of a new babe, its parents are literally inundated with thoughtful gifts for their little cherub. From hats, baby grows and muslins, to teddies, toys and blankets, newborns today have never been luckier. But as a first time parent myself, I know from first-hand experience that, while every present is wholly unexpected and extremely generous, the gifts which really stand out from the crowd… View Post

A Wrist Watch like no other – Review and COMPETITION!

When I was recently invited to try out an innovative new wooden wrist watch from JORD, the request couldn’t have been more timely. You see, as a dad-to-be in the final weeks of pregnancy, and now as a real life father, time has never been more precious. During the latter stages of pregnancy, I always felt that time was running out. It seemed there was never going to be enough time to prepare our home and buy all the kit we would need before our new baby’s arrival.… View Post

Maternity wear: what’s all the fuss about?

The maternity wear industry is big business across the world. But as I’ve learned over the past few months of pregnancy, it can be a veritable minefield for new mums-to-be. From ill-fitting tops and massive sack dresses, to swathes of stretchy elastic and cheap synthetic fabrics, it seems like almost every women’s fashion retailer out there now offers a small range of ‘maternity’ options. And yet it still remains almost impossible for my pregnant wife to find clothes that tick all the boxes, of being well-fitted and comfortable, while… View Post
