Cocoonababy , the Red Castle baby Nest Review

When I was pregnant with Baba3, at around 7 months we started thinking bedding solution. Having a new baby is tiring but the sleep depravation it comes with is exhausting. So, no need to say, a good bed for a good baby sleep is essential, even vital for our sleep. I co-slept with my two other daughters with a Moses Basket near to my bed side. Co-sleeping is the natural and less wearying solution when breastfeeding. This is the one I chose. We first wanted to try the Snuzpod, see if it was worth it but after more thoughts, we had already a Moses basket and a cot bed and we ended up not willing to change. What was the point to buy a new piece of furniture even if this one is fabulous? We decided that we would use the Moses Basket for the first few weeks before to switch to a cot bed. It was clear from the beginning that we did not want baby to get used too much to her Moses Basket. Why? …

Snüz Designz Swaddle blanket Review

Just after their births, babies are swaddled by midwives. My daughters have been too. I heard about swaddling when I was younger but have rarely seen a swaddled baby so when Anna was born, when I came back home, I did not swaddle her, not because I did not want to, no, just and simply because I did not know much about swaddling. She was an unsettled baby, and the only way to calm her was by holding her and keeping her next to me: thanks baby wearing and my Mobywrap! Then with Maryam, from the hospital, her first day into this world, I used to swaddle her. Why? An evidence this time. I learnt about swaddling and the benefits and how it could improve baby’s sleep. At this time I was using some baby blankets to swaddle her and it did wonder with her. She was sleeping very well. In fact so well, we were worried about her. For us it was so contrasting with Anna who barely slept during the day and at night! I …

Week 2 : Baby’s First Bath {Green People Organic Babies Newborn Hamper Review}

We have decided to delay Baby’s first bath  for Baby3 and decided this time to give another go to baby care products. I have been looking for months for the best products around and I decided to try Green People  because I have heard so much good things about their range. Why Green People? A bit of story , What attracted  me and why I like Green People: Green people , it is a mom life to start with. The life of Charlotte Vøhtz’s. When I first read her story  I had the feeling of a flash back with my first daughter. It seems that we have all encountered this issue : battling multiple skin, food allergies and eczema. Like many of us, after trying to find natural cosmetics with no results and realising that high streets cosmetics are everything but not natural, she created her own organic creams and salves, carefully tailored to her daughter’s allergy-prone skin. And in 1997, Green People was born. Did you know that? In fact you only need to have less than 1% …

Frugi, an organic Eco-friendly clothing brand from Bump to child

Nearly 37 weeks today and just starting to gather all we might need. For this Baby, like for Baba2 {let’s call her Rainbow from now}, we are going to use cloth nappies from birth. For Rainbow, I did not buy special cut for clothes clothing as I thought it was useless and just a new “need” created by Brands. I was so wrong and so silly! Guess what happened? All my baby vests were too short and had a tendency to squeeze the nappy, resulting on leaks. I decided to buy some vest extenders thinking that it will help. Unfortunately, they were compatible with only 2 out of 10 baby vests. Not having the time to search for another solution, we just kept going and just not fastening the vest when impossible resulting on a funny look. I am now more than convinced and aware that Cut for Clothes Clothing makes your life easier and are more practical if you use cloth nappies! So I have decided to invest in few clothes and see how …
