Healthy Family Snacking When Out And About

One of my favourite things about having kids is being able to visit new places and experience new things with them. Whether it’s parks, farms, museums or even the dreaded soft play, I love seeing L – and increasingly ‘Beetle’ – get enjoyment out of a family day out. Something I don’t love though is […]

Review: Britax Römer BABY-SAFE i-SIZE Car Seat And BABY-SAFE i-SIZE FLEX BASE

Choosing car seats is always tricky. There’s so many on the market, all with different features and USP’s designed to give your child ‘the safest journey ever’. It can be confusing for experienced parents, let alone first-time parents delving into the world of baby products for the first time. A car seat that particularly interested […]

Ed Sheeran And A Major Case Of Baby Brain

Friday night saw the missus and I have a much needed few hours away from the kids. With the grandparents lined up for babysitting duties and all possible eventualities planned for, we were free to enjoy a night at Wembley with Ed Sheeran. Or at least that’s what I thought… What I’d not factored in […]

Taking Care Of Yourself After Having A Baby

I see plenty of advice saying that mums need to remember to look after themselves during the postpartum period. But what about us dads?

6 Things To Do With Kids On Holiday In Helsinki

Having visited the Nordic Countries of Iceland, Norway, Sweden and Denmark on previous holidays, it was only a matter of time before we ticked off Finland. This happened over the weekend as we headed to Helsinki for a couple of days to explore what the city offered for families with young kids. Since becoming parents, […]

5 Things That Annoy Me About Disneyland Paris

We’ve recently returned from our second family trip to Disneyland Paris. We first went in March 2017, then randomly decided to book a last minute trip again in May 2018 – I’m pretty sure this had something to do with the missus realising she was nearly half way through maternity leave and the need to […]

Review: Water Babies Swimming Lessons Chapter 11

Boom! And just like that, we’ve finished Chapter 11 of Water Babies. It’s been fun, it’s been challenging, it’s been wet and it’s been emotional. Prior to starting the next chapter though, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on and review Chapter 11. The last Water Babies review I wrote was actually this […]

Celebrating The Alternative Baby And Toddler Milestones

Their first week. Their first smile. The first time they sit up. Their first taste of food. Their first tooth. The first time they crawl. Their first birthday. Life with a little one is full of milestones. That first year will see your baby go from a small, wrinkly thing that does nothing but feed, […]
