Cloth Bum Mum..and proud!

Monday, January 28, 2013

For a while now we've been experimenting with cloth nappies. We now finally have enough nappies to use cloth full time. I've noticed there seems to be the same reaction every time I say to a person that we use reusable nappies the 'oh you're brave' comment. It's as if you dont deal with the same nasty surprises in a disposable nappy! I was kind of put off at first from mentioning to anyone that we use them but this last week I've decided to forget what other people say and show off my little cloth bum baby!

Daisy Roots Review

Monday, January 21, 2013

When Gracie was born she had more shoes than I did. As she was my first I went crazy shopping and ended up with a silly amount of shoes that were never worn as the second she kicked her legs that was it they were off. The amount of times I went to adjust her blanket while out to find we'd lost a shoe meant when I was expecting Zach I didn't bother to buy many shoes.

Last week I received the cutest little leather shoes to review from the lovely people at Daisy Roots. Daisy Roots sell a range of leather shoes handmade in the UK for children from newborn up to 4 years old. The shoes are a very reasonable price as they are real leather and the dyes used to colour them are non toxic making them safe for babies who can't keep their feet out of their mouths. They can also be gift wrapped for an additional £2 making them a great gift for any mummy or expectant mummy friends.

For anyone that doesn't know Zulily, it's the daily deals site with a difference. I came across them a few months ago and I'm regularly checking it out for its amazing deals. Their flash sales offer up to 90% off high end brands with each deal lasting 72 hours. Stock can be limited though so if you spot a bargain perfect for you then don't hesitate you won't regret buying it!

The thing I like best about Zulily is that whatever you buy is sent directly from them unlike many other daily deal sites where you purchase a voucher to use then have to order and pay p&p costs. Zulily charge £3.95 standard delivery for UK orders and if you decide to order anything else the same day there are no extra delivery charges.

Not only does Zulily treat us all with their fab deals but they also hold a monthly cuties competition. This month they are asking for an instagram photo of your little one with the biggest grin possible. Their favourite photo wins a £100 Zulily Voucher, storage boxes from Feather and Black and a Juicy Couture clutch for mum.

Cheeky Wipes Kit

Sunday, January 06, 2013

I've recently started using reusable nappies on Zach as he has very sensitive skin. When I started using them I realised that the disposable wipes I was using can't be good for a sensitive bum. I looked into reusable wipes and found there are so many different types of wipes and didn't know where to start. This is when I came across Cheeky Wipes. Cheeky Wipes sell a perfect baby wipes kit that is simple to use. The kit contains:

  • 25 lovely soft cloth baby wipes - 15 cm x 15 cm
  • 1 Fresh Wipes container
  • 1 Mucky Wipes container with mesh bag insert
  • 1 Fresh Wipes waterproof out and about travel bag
  • 1 Mucky Wipes waterproof out and about travel bag with mesh bag insert
  • 1 bottle of Lavender & Chamomile ‘Fresh Wipes' essential oil blend
  • 1 bottle of Tea Tree & Tea tree lemon ‘Mucky Wipes' essential oil blend
