Argos 2 For £30 on Toys
Just a quick blog today as Bank Holiday Monday is coming to a close and we have a mound of washing and playroom tidying to get through. Argos has jumped on the toy sale bandwagon and launched its 2 toys for £30 deal. I hate to say it again, but the ‘C’ word will be on us before you know it, and if you have to shop for as many kids as we do then you’ll be thankful that I suggested you start stocking up early to spread the cost.

Baby swimming
Our girls are waterbabies. They have both swum from a very young age, our youngest hadn't even finished her routine of jabs before we had her signed up at a local parent and baby class (its a myth that you have to wait - the NHS says so) Quite early on in our eldest's swimming journey we were told about the laryngeal reflex (more commonly known as the gag reflex). When this reflex kicks in, a baby will instinctively hold its breath and avoid inhaling water in response to the sensation

Packing a hospital bag
This is one of those questions that I literally had zero clue about back in April 2015. I scoured the internet looking for lists and I found it really hard to get a definitive answer. I packed my bag really early. Neil had a few meetings scheduled for when i was 34 weeks pregnant each between 3 and 5 hours away from home. I needed to be prepared. Those who know me know that I am a planner. I like to be organised and I like to have a plan

Bathtime funtime
I love bath times. Especially now my two are at an age where they can share a bath together. We splash and play with toys and sing silly songs. It also marks the start of our bedtime routine. We've become a dab hand at it now, but I just wanted to take a moment to share some of our top tips and top buys for bathing a newborn. Mainly because when we started out it was again a trip to google and trying to remember what the woman at the

The great outdoors
What a summer we have had so far, here’s hoping that writing a blog post about the beautiful weather won’t jinx it! My 3 year old loves being outside. If it’s the garden, the playground or a day trip to the beach there is nothing better than watching her squeal with delight whilst running around like a loony.
