What to put your new baby to sleep in can be a big decision for new parents. Do you use a cradle? A bassinet? Straight into the cot? You are up and down so much in those first few months that it’s much more convenient to have baby right beside your bed so you can lean over and comfort them without getting up, or just pull them into bed with you for a feed.

Vacuums- we spend our lives finding a decent one that can pick up all the kid detritus left in the wake of our little darlings, and the pets! As part of that quest, I have been sent a Hoover Paws & Claws bagless vacuum for review, thanks to Godfreys.

My five-year-old has done two long-haul trips this year- once to the US and once to Scotland, and for both trips, she has used a Plane Pal sleep aid. The Plane Pal inflates and fills the footwell of the seat, creating a flat surface for your child to sleep on. It was a game changer for us, giving her a solid amount of sleep each flight and saving our sanity!
Have you thought about an outdoor cinema but wondered if it would be worth the cost? Smart Digital Australia sent us their new product, the Backyard Home Cinema, to road test and we are hooked!
Here is how we have been using it in the last week:
I am pregnant with baby number two and all the buzz on social media has been about Redsbaby prams. I had never heard of them last time I was pregnant back in 2013 so I decided to investigate.

Winter is here (and I’m freezing) but as well as battling the cold, I’m not looking forward to battling all the winter germs as well. Last year I spend the whole winter with a terrible cough and this year I’ve already had Tully sick numerous times with various viruses. One in particular really knocked her flat and I’ve noticed that she’s taking a long time to really bounce back.

When we were asked by Hasbro to check out their new game, Fantastic Gymnastics, we thought what better way to road test it than with our real mum reviewers. Fantastic Gymnastics is recommended for kids aged 8+ so we found two mums with 8-9-year-old girls to see if they could take on the Fantastic Gymnastics game challenge!

Over the long weekend, we went camping with friends and family for three nights. There were six kids along for the ride and, on an unpowered site, we needed some entertainment! Hasbro had sent me their new game, Toilet Trouble, to try out, and I thought this might be the perfect time to give it a road test. After all, with all the kids aged between three and seven, toilet humour is the funniest thing ever!

Family movie nights are one of our most popular family bonding activities. We are all massive movie lovers and we love nothing better than watching movies and then discussing them (sometimes very passionately!). While my husband and the teenagers do a weekly family movie night we also try and include Tully as well. There has been a great range of family movies released recently on DVD and Blu-Ray and one of our favourites is SING!
Are your kids desperate to see the new adaptation of Beauty and the Beast? I know Tully hasn’t stopped talking about it for months. But I’m sure that many of you have seen the preview and wondered if it was going to be too scary for your child, especially if they are on the younger side.
