Neal’s Yard Baby Barrier Cream. EVERY house needs it.

Honestly – I’m a bit of a bore on this. Neal’s Yard Baby Barrier Cream is one of my top ‘new baby’ gifts; this little blue pot is an essential in any house.  Most Mum’s prefer anything that goes near their babies to be as additive-free as possible. So it’s no surprise that we love the Neal’s Yard range either! Natural products, beautifully packaged… of course we love them. But...

Spotted! SUPER Adorable Crocodile toy – under £10 AND Fair Trade too!

I know it’s not your average baby soft toy. But LOOK at these gorgeous crocs! Irresistibly bright and cheery, soft with textures and handily chewable flappy bits, and the absolute perfect shape for small hands to grab and carry. And on top of all that, he’s good for your conscience too – Cushy the crocodile (Cushy? He looks far more like a Stanley to me, personally) is the newest addition to Barefoot’s range of...

Katinka’s Tail Review – It’s A New Judith Kerr Book, People!

Judith Kerr OBE . Oh how I love her. Come on, we ALL do – show me a parent, and I’ll show you a battered copy of The Tiger Who Came To Tea. Her oddly age-irrelevant and rather wonderful ‘When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit‘ is one of my top ten comfort reads. I grew up with wonderful Mog, and enjoyed them all again the second time round with my children when they were small. But I couldn’t get quite as excited...

TOP Buys for Swimming with your Baby & Toddler #ExperiencedMummaTip

When your ‘babies’ are 6′ teenagers, it’s sometimes easy to forget those far-off days when they actually needed you every single step of the way. But it’s astonishing how much knowledge you stack away in your brain that’s just sitting idle, waiting for the day someone asks you (or till your babies have babies, and you can become *that* granny with all the advice). I was chatting to a fellow Brit in...

Sunday Picture Book – Dear Zoo

We love books – obviously – and we often review latest releases. But I’ve been a parent for nearly twenty years, and I know that the older books sometimes get overlooked by new parents – and they’re missing out on a gem or two of bedtime reading. I think we all know the Very Hungry Caterpillar, of course, but I find newer parents may not know Albert Le Blanc, Little Tiger or Spot. There have been some beautiful picture books that we’d...
