Introducing Showers to a Toddler {Hevea Bath Mat Review}

Bath time is really fun for babies and toddlers but sometimes a shower is more convenient and more ecologic. I try to learn my children the sooner possible that we should not waste water. Taking a bath is a pleasure but should not be done daily, instead we take a shower. How to replace bath time by shower time and make my children more independent and more eco-conscious, and let them enjoy? The first thing is to make the experience safe. Because if you introduce shower to a toddler and she/he falls…I let you imagine the outcome. So how to make shower time safe, ecologic, economic and enjoyable for your little one? First thing and not the least, you need a good bath mat. We used to have one we bought five years ago –I don’t remember where– with ducks. I hated it and still do. Why, this rubber smell that never goes. Baba1 loved it so much that I could not get rid of it until I explained her that even if the mat …

Elvie : Your very personal trainer and your Pelvic Floor best friend

Today, I am going to talk a taboo subject. Taboo for a reason I ignore. I wish I had known about it when I had my first baby. When I was pregnant with Baby3, one lady of the Elvie team contacted me to try their personal trainer and talk about it. I was first a bit reluctant and had to think. Why? I asked myself why did I feel ashamed to talk about something women related and that it is so important? Why? Maybe because of my own experience. Let’s go back together in 2011 when I delivered my first daughter after a very fast labour. Unfortunately, when she passed, my urethra has been damaged and I will never forget what the consultant told me few minutes after having my baby. I have been told that I will be incontinent all my life and would have to wear a catheter for few months. All of this was so overwhelming between the joy of having my first baby and our first meeting and the cold consultant …

EcoSnack Wrap for Lunch Boxes and Sunny days!

Sunny days are still here and we all love a bit of a day out, to the park, beach or zoo or anywhere else you fancy ! September is also coming fast and it is already {unfortunately} time to think again Lunch boxes for work or four little Bambinos. Back to school very soon, we love green alternatives. So instead of wrapping our  -or our children- sandwiches in plastic bags or foil, why not try some more sustainable alternatives?   One of the alternatives available is Fabric wraps. I have seen a lot since a while and always wondered if it was really keeping food fresh. You can always use plastic box, but we try to avoid plastic: I am just saying we try 🙂 But sometimes, you just do not want to take a big plastic box and you are looking for something more flexible. We have tried Eco Snack Wrap that I have discovered through the website of LivingNaturally who stock them. “Ecosnackwrap is the sole UK distributor of http://www.4myearth.com.au range of Sandwich …

A better and greener alternative to plastic: LIFEFACTORY Glass Bottles and food storage

A greener life for a healthier and better life. I am totally convinced about it but it is not always easy to switch for many reasons: the cost being one of them. Not easy also to decide for what alternative to go. A thing is sure for us, we are tired to see a bin full of plastic bottles! So few years ago we stopped buying mineral water and we used plastic jars! I know, very silly indeed. As I said switching to green alternatives is sometimes more expensive and we have to wait. We do things little by little. With the arrival of Baba3, soon now, we have chosen to go for Glass baby bottles and Glass water bottles for us too. I have looked as usual into the web to find out the solution that will suit us best. I have found Lifefactory. Before committing to the entire range, we wanted to try first and see how a bottle works and resists. A glass bottle in a baby/toddler/child hand might be frightening, don’t …

Pourquoi? Il y a quelques temps je vous parlais d’un de mes coups de coeurs: Ilham’s dans un de mes articles “Mes coups de Coeur”.

Ilham’s vous propose tout un univers pour la maison. Cela va de la table à la chambre en passant par la salle de bains. Avant d’entrer plus en details, je me dois de faire un Disclaimer/une mise en garde!

Je ne pourrais ou ne saurais être tenue pour responsable pour toute addiction ou comportement d’acheteuse compulsive qui pourrait en découler. Voilà, je me devais de vous avertir car …
