OUR NEWBORN SLEEP SECRETS (SHHHH!)

When any new parent brings baby home for the first time, it’s natural to feel nervous. You can read all of the books in the world, but there’s nothing quite like living it for yourself – magical, unknown, filled with joy and exhausting – often all at the same time. Sleep (or lack of) is a topic on every new parent’s mind, which makes choosing the right sleeping arrangements for you and your family, one of the most important early decisions. Remember that this is your individual experience to shape... Read More

When you are expecting, you suddenly have a very long list of things you are going to need.

WHICH TYPE OF STERILISER SHOULD I USE?

If there’s one baby item I couldn’t be without it’s a steriliser. It’s so important to keep baby items such as Bottles, Dummies, Breast Feeding Equipment and Teething Rings sterile. The Nuby Electric SteriDryer is absolutely one of my favourite sterilisers. Gone are the days I burn myself on water when getting the bottles out as this steriliser actually dries bottles too. I remember when my eldest was a baby and in those rush moments when he needed feeding I would just pop my hand in to get the bottles... Read More

PREPARING TO BECOME A MUM OF TWO AFTER LOSS

Around a year and a half ago, just before Ollie was 1, my partner and I decided we were ready to try for another bundle of love. I got pregnant with Ollie pretty quickly but this time it took almost 6 months. I think when you actively try it usually takes that little bit longer. At around 8 weeks pregnant we were told our baby wasn’t in the right place and unfortunately I was suffering an ectopic pregnancy which resulted in emergency surgery. The pain and suffering and felt was... Read More

MY BABY BEST BUYS…

WE’RE HAVING ANOTHER BABY! I cannot believe that in our last Nuby Blog, which was in January, I spoke about us having another baby in the future if we were lucky enough and little did we know, I was already carrying baby number two! This is a super exciting time for us and we cannot wait to see our little Hugo, just turned two, become a big brother.  New baby, means all things new right? I feel confident this time around what to not waste our money on and what... Read More

A BABY CARRIER WAS AN ABSOLUTE GAME CHANGER FOR ME

When I was pregnant with my first baby a baby carrier wasn’t even on our list of things to buy, other than seeing the occasional celebrity in OK magazine wearing their baby in a carrier this wasn’t something that any of my close friends or family had used so it really wasn’t on my radar. That changed though when my daughter was born! No matter what I did I just couldn’t keep her happy in the pushchair!  I tried straight after a feed so I knew she wasn’t hungry, when... Read More

PREGNANCY DIARY

Week 4 – 8 Firstly, what I didn’t know was that once you find out you are pregnant you are actually not 1 week; you are 4 weeks pregnant as it counted from the first day of your last period! Bonus! Never underestimate how well you know your own body. I had just arrived home from honeymoon and told my husband I just didn’t feel right and he told me that it was just jet lag and to not be silly. When I even mentioned getting a pregnancy test, he... Read More

THE 10 ESSENTIAL NEWBORN BABY PRODUCTS THIS MUM RECOMMENDS

When we found out we were pregnant, we were half excited and half shocked.  I told a few of our closest family members but wanted to wait until our 12 week scan before we officially announced it to everyone else.  When we did announce it, the response we had was amazing but I definitely didn’t expect to be offered up so much advice so early on and to be told you need this and that and this and that! Oh and ‘I have this you can have’, ‘did you want... Read More

HEAR WHAT THE REAL TALKING NEW DADS HAVE TO SAY…

We often hear what it’s like to have a baby from a mum’s point of view, but not so much from the dad’s. We think it’s about time dads got more airtime! Dads play such a massive role in parenting nowadays – their role has arguably changed more than mums in the last decade or so. And we think it’s important to hear it from their point of view. Yeah, mums do A LOT but so do dads. We invited the dads to have their say, without their partners being... Read More
