Review: Paddy’s Bathroom Kids Bathing Products

Bathtime with a baby can often be a roller coaster ride. One minute it’s all laughs and giggles as your sprog splashes around in the bath as you look on lovingly. The next it’s full of screams and tears as the little one tries to escape from their watery grave as you find yourself slowly pulling […]

Supporting The Lullaby Trust’s Beards For Babies Campaign

5 Tips For When Your Partner Goes Into Labour

To celebrate Baby L’s ‘nine months in, nine months out’ anniversary, I thought it’d be good to look back on that eventful evening when she disembarked the mothership and share some of the things I learnt.

Review: Penwizard Personalised ‘My Daddy’ Peppa Pig Book

What’s better than a book? (Don’t say the TV) A personalised book which features you and the fruit of your loins, of course! Being somewhat of a connoisseur of baby-related items since Baby L popped into the world nine months ago, I was very intrigued when I was contacted by the guys and girls at […]

You’ve read it correctly. The post title isn’t a mistake. This is all about how to STOP your baby from moving around and causing havoc once they start to learn to crawl. In little over a week, Baby L has gone from being immobile to crawling (in her unique way) to standing up by supporting […]

May 11th 2015. A date I will always remember (probably). For this is the date that I became a full-time stay-at-home dad to Baby L. I toyed with how to start this post. As a consumer of mass media which often negatively portrays dads as a fumbling mess when it comes to their kids, I […]

Review: Konfidence Babywarma Baby Wetsuit and Roll & Go Baby Changer

Earlier in the year, we were sent a few swimwear items from the fab guys at Konfidence so that we were kitted out with all of the essentials we needed to take the sprog swimming. This included the AquaNappy, NeoNappy, Babywarma Wetsuit and Roll & Go Baby Changer. I reviewed the AquaNappy and NeoNappy a few weeks ago - together, these create a double layer […]

I’m no Neil Buchanan, but that doesn’t stop me from uttering – and adding to – these most famous of words… “This is a (baby) Art Attack. THIS is a (baby) Art Attack. THIS IS (baby) Art Attack!” In case you haven’t gathered, this post is about babies and art, namely Baby L’s recent quest to […]

Review: SnoozeShade Plus Deluxe Sun And Sleep Shade

Everyone knows that it is important to get babies into a routine…or at least that’s what everyone tells newbie parents. What we’re not told though is that the reality of following a routine is pretty bloody difficult when you have a life to live. A baby obviously changes a lot of things, but it is not always […]
