Baltic Amber strung into jewellery has been long been hailed by many mums as a way to soothe babies through teething. Those who use Amber beads, swear by them, but there are also many that are sceptical of the healing properties they are supposed to possess. Then, there are also the safety concerns of babies wearing jewellery.
As Emmie is showing more and more signs of teething, I have begun once again to think how I can help soothe her sore gums. Teething gels are having little effect and although she doesn’t seem too bad with her symptoms, her drooling and mouth full of fist tell me she is feeling it! Finlay was never too bad with his teething and we sporadically used Amber beads, but I wanted to dig deeper to see if it could be the answer for Emmie.
So what’s the story behind Baltic Amber?
Amber has been used for centuries and was once thought to hold magical powers protecting the wearer from evil spirits and diseases.… Read More
Fairy Gardens, magical little oasis right in our backyards. Did you know that fairy Gardens can be dated right back to 1893? Created to lure fairies in to your garden and bring with them good luck for your home! How magical! Who believes in fairies? Put your hand up, I do! I do! I’m a big believer in magic! As well as the chance of luring little fairies into your garden creating a fairy garden is also a great way to ignite your child’s imagination, 2 birds 1 stone!!
I was so excited when Gardens2you provided Finlay with his very own Fairy garden kit to review. Together we want to help break the mould, fairies don’t just have to be for girls and their gardens definitely don’t have to be pink and fluffy! Finlay has thoroughly enjoyed setting up his fairy garden. It is by no means finished, but that’s what I love.… Read More
I have to admit I am a bit of a sucker for a good bib and Zippy do do a good bib! I remember using Zippy Bibs when Finlay was a baby and was always impressed by their quality. So I was very excited when Nicole, the founder got in contact and asked if I wanted to review some bibs. I didn’t hestitate. They arrived last week and Emmie has spent the last few days drolling them through their paces.
Zippy was founded 5 years ago by Nicole, a mother herself who wanted to make useful baby products for mums designed by mums. Today Zippy sell a number of different types of bibs, clothing, muslins, swaddles and blankets. Zippy products are in fact so useful and well designed, they have won a number of awards!
Zippy bibs come a huge variety of designs for boys, girls and unisex. The bibs are made from 100% pure cotton and premium quality fleece making them super soft and highly absorpant.… Read More
