Ideas for Toddler Food on the Move

Sometimes when you have a toddler it is inevitable that you will end up eating on the go. We recently went on holiday to Devon and with a 4-hour drive ahead of us, we decided the best thing to do was to leave just before lunch time. We wanted to arrive in the late afternoon…

Review of the Hape Camper Van Walker

It’s never easy to decide what to buy for your little ones to help their development. There is so much available now that inevitably you will end up with some baby-related paraphernalia that is hardly touched or not even used at all. One of the things that has definitely helped Phoebe with her development is…

Enjoying family time outdoors with Anthisan

Phoebe really enjoys being outdoors and playing outside, which I think is lovely and something I want to embrace before she hits the age where TV and computer games are much more appealing! I've always worried though that my aversion to bugs and creepy crawlies (particularly spiders) will transfer onto Phoebe, and she'll grow up…

I personally found it a little confusing when I was trying to figure out how to transition Phoebe from milk to solid foods, as there is so much information out there. And there are lots of conflicting opinions. A friend recently told me that she attended a class where…

Baby-friendly Slow-Cooker Chicken Casserole

At nearly 9 months Phoebe has certainly become more adventurous with her food, as well as dropping more of her milk feeds so she is hungrier for solids. As I mentioned in my Vonshef slow cooker review, I want to get her used to eating the same as us so once I’m back at work…

Christmas Gift Guide for 6-12 month olds

The amount of choice available for Christmas gifts for little ones is staggering, with so many options out there. I personally think toys are always a winner, as babies grow so rapidly and newborn toys are quickly outgrown. One of my favourite brands for our daughter has been Hape, who make and sell beautiful toys…
