Review: S+ by ResMed sleep monitor

As a first-time parent you receive a lot of conflicting advice about parenthood. However, there is one thing that everyone agrees on… You will never get a good night sleep again!

To Pacify or Not To Pacify

To pacify or not to pacify, that is the question! I’ve always been dead set against dummies. They’re horrible dirty things covered in baby spit and germs. While pregnant, whenever anyone asked me if I intended to use them, I’d shudder and say “No Way!” while visions of a mother picking a dummy up off the floor and popping it in their own mouth to clean it swam through my head making me feel a little queezy.

Review: The Original GroBag baby sleeping bag

Close up of the Starlight and Apple fabric design.

About the original GroBag baby sleeping bag Despite the name we are not talking about bags of dirt to grow your tomatoes in. GroBags and other baby sleeping bags are an alternative to blankets for babies and small children. They are effectively little tiny sleeping bags which come in a variety of shapes, sizes, colours and designs but all share the feature of neck and arm holes. About the product Today I will be reviewing two GroBags from both ends of the price spectrum. Both are size 0-6 months, 2.5 Tog (suitable for temperatures of 16 to 20 degrees C) […]
