Real Mum Review- Reid Cycles kids vintage roadsters

20th June 2016

REID CYCLES

It was an exciting day here when my six-year-old son received a delivery from Reid Cycles. His very own big boy bike. The same kind his best friend Tully has but this one was navy blue. Finally, the weekend rolled by and Nathan pulled out his tool kit to help build it with his dad. What a fun bonding experience that was for the two of them and Nathan finally had a legitimate reason to use his mini-me toolkit.

When should a baby start solids?

When Should Your Baby When you have a new baby you are bombarded with so much information (and so much of it is conflicting) that it’s hard to know where to start and what the right thing is. We question our instincts a lot of the time and we rely on advice from mothers at the park, our mothers’ groups, our own mothers, and friends. One of the big topics with a young baby is when to start solids and what to feed them. Everyone has a different opinion of when you should start solids with babies and what you should introduce first.

Homemade Winter Soup
We love a simple pot meal in our house.  Basically I find whatever we have in the fridge and throw it all in a huge pot.  It’s the perfect solution for days when you need to plan ahead or you need something easy but nourishing to cook.  The only effort required is chopping and occasionally pot stirring.

REAL PLAY

Brought to you by Omo and Nuffnang

It’s no secret that, as mums, we spend way too much time doing housework and not nearly enough time having fun! Apparently almost 40% of parents feel they have too much housework and/or chores to do! So when I was offered to trial a new prototype designed to help lighten the load, I was pretty interested. With three kids, running the blog, working in my PR job and all the housework, it can be hard to find time to get everything done.

Finding support in online communities

I had my first baby 17 years ago when I was 20. It was before the internet had much going for it and in many ways, it was very isolating. I was much younger than all the other women in mother’s group and I only had a few friends my age with kids. The only place to get advice was at the baby clinic or through my mum. I found the whole experience quite overwhelming at times, and very lonely.

Kid-Proofing your iPhone with Evo Xplorer

Evo Xplorer

We review a lot of products over here at Stuff Mums Like, but this is the first time I’ve put my life in the hands of a review product (by life of course I mean my iPhone- my love, my lifeline!)I was asked to road test the Evo Xplorer phone cover, a new waterproof, shockproof, kid proof phone cover by Tech 21- and I’m not going to say I wasn’t nervous! They want me to put my phone in water? What if it doesn’t work?

Selling Your House? Here’s How to Choose an Agent

How to choose an agent

Every day I open my letterbox and I have a new invite from a real estate who REALLY, REALLY wants to help us sell our house. These flyers often end up in the fire or the recycling bin. I’m good at helping the environment like that.

Real estate agent shopping can be harder than finding an LBD (little black dress) that’s the perfect fit. I am sure I have tried on more than 200 little black dresses in my life, but I only own two.

Car Seat Safety: Do Not Restrain Your Child’s Head

30th May 2016

CAR SEAT SAFETY

A photo popped up on my news feed that made my heart skip a beat recently. It was a friend’s son in his booster with a sweatshirt’s sleeves tied in front of his head to keep it from flopping forward as he slept. What was scarier to me was the number of people who unknowingly endorsed what was an incredibly dangerous idea. Lots of “Yeah great idea”, “Good job mate” etc.
