No matter how small the achievement is I always celebrate it as if she won gold in the Olympics! But I have to be honest, her increasing mobility has caused all sorts of havoc in the nappy […]

Review: WaterWipes baby wet wipes

WaterWipes baby wet wipes review

About WaterWipes WaterWipes are a chemical free wet wipe which uses only water and a drop of fruit extract. The lack of chamicals means that they are considered safe to use from birth by most and may help prevent skin conditions such as nappy rash. My review of WaterWipes It’s fair to say that most first time parents have no idea how much having a tiny human will change them and their lives. The impact of bringing a life into the world is massive but one of the biggest surprises has to be exactly how much time you suddenly spend […]

The Essential Guide to Changing your Newborn Baby's Nappy

I’ve been reviewing lots of nappy changing bits and bobs recently and it’s got me thinking about my experience dealing with nappy changes compared with the instructions I received from books and classes before Baby was born. Needless to say the real deal is much different from the expectation so I decided that I would write a realistic guide to changing your shiny new baby’s slightly less shiny rear end. Disclaimer: This guide is based on changing a girls nappy, if you are changing a boy I suggest the addition of a rain hood or poncho as an extra precaution. […]

The horror of baby changing rooms

Baby Changing Rooms Article www.grumpymum.co.uk

After visiting some of the most disgusting baby changing rooms I’ve ever seen, I’ve been inspired to write about how awful these amenities can be. Baby changing rooms aren’t required by law or by any regulation that I know of, however most businesses who provide toilet facilities and would like to cash in on the mummy (or daddy for that matter) pound, do provide them.
