When do I get my child’s eyes tested?

Hopefully you don’t need to think about your new babies eyes (except for gazing into them for the hours at a time, obviously) – all babies have a quick eye screen at birth (no, I didn’t know it had happened either), and then the Health Visitor will do another at their 6wk check.

Talking Vaginas With My Daughter | #MummyConversations

A few weeks ago I returned for Bedtime Pt II (totally normal for us – part one ensures teeth/pj’s/hug/under duvet settled with book, part two is actual lights out, goodnight kiss and hug for reals 30 mins later) visit, and found an agitated girl.

Be Safe, Be Seen – we love these Hi-Vis ActionPaks.

I find I don’t have too much trouble keeping the younglings safe as the nights draw in during Autumn & early winter; they’ve had months of outside fun, and they’re happy to be indoors more for winter pursuits.

Spotted – Gorgeous Girl’s Horse T-Shirt Under £4 from M&S!

If you’ve got a pony-mad girl, this find I just spotted over in the M&S sale just might make her smile a bit… I just love it! I’m not a huge fan of animals on my clothes, but with a subtle and beautiful print like this you really can’t go wrong. And there’s not many girls I know who wouldn’t love a herd of white horses galloping through the spray. It’s a polyester tee so it’ll feel...
