PARENTHOOD: Our Bedtime Routine with a 1 and 3 year old

PARENTHOOD: Our Bedtime Routine with a 1 and 3 year old
*Advertorial Content - Gifted items. 
Our bedtime routine has always been part of the day I really treasure, as we wind down from the busy day and spend some quality quiet time together. Since having two children our bedtime routine has changed, but the main components have stayed the same - bath, book, bottle, bed. While Poppy is still young she has a bottle before bed, whereas Isabella will have a glass of milk at dinner time instead now. We are planning on phasing Poppy's bedtime bottle out soon and replacing it with a glass of milk at dinner time, like Isabella has. But for now it is still part of our routine and one of the only precious one-on-one times I get with Poppy.

PARENTHOOD: 4 Ways to Futureproof your Child's Bedroom

PARENTHOOD: 4 Ways to Futureproof your Child's Bedroom
*Advertorial Content 
As a parent there are a lot of changes, milestones and exciting moments that change your family life. When both Isabella and Poppy were approaching six months and quickly outgrowing their Moses basket I knew we had to make 'the big move' into their own bedroom. It was an anxious time, but luckily it resulted in more sleep for everyone and we really enjoyed creating a peaceful, adaptable space for them to call their own. Planning your child's bedroom is such a fun process, as you consider colour palettes, furniture, storage and where all of their toys are going to go?! But something that is worth considering during this process is how to futureproof their bedroom, so that you're not having to spend yet more money in only a few years to once again adapt it to their older age.

TRAVEL: Why we Fell in Love with Bluestone in Wales
*Advertorial Content - Press Trip
We recently has the pleasure of visiting Bluestone National Park Resort in Wales on a family holiday and we fell in love with the place. If you're not familiar with Bluestone it is a large National Park in Pembrokeshire that is filled with a range of different size lodges, children's activities, parks, woodlands, restaurants, cafes and facilities. Everything you could need for a fun filled holiday is all included within the park, so there is no need to leave if you don't want to. Come rain or shine the whole family can enjoy what Bluestone has to offer, which is exactly why we fell in love.

PARENTHOOD: How has the first 1000 days of parenting been second time around compared to the first?

PARENTHOOD: How has the first 1000 days of parenting been second time around compared to the first?
*Advertorial Content – paid partnership with SMA® Nutrition.
Entering the world of parenting is a steep learning journey, filled with both magical and challenging times. But how do those vital first 1000 days differ between your first and second baby? In 2015 Isabella made us parents for the first time and by the time she was six months we had spent many hours simply staring at this little bundle of joy that had entered our world. Life as a parent is a juggling act of feeding, burping, nappy changing, sleeping (baby, not us!) and a lot of first experiences. We learnt together, cried together, shared the excitement with family/friends, had so many questions and laughed beyond belief at what our life had become.

RECIPE: Peach and Raspberry Dutch Pancake

RECIPE: Peach and Raspberry Dutch Pancake
*Advertorial Content
Pancakes are glorious whatever the day, time or season, but especially at the beginning of the year. Pancake Day is around the corner, warm comfort food is needed and spring is on the horizon. American pancakes, crepes and scotch pancakes are all pretty common, but have you tried a Dutch pancake? Think Yorkshire pudding vibes with a sweet twist; absolutely heavenly topped with jam for sweetness, fruit for freshness and yogurt for creaminess. The good news is, they are also very easy to make and don't require standing at the hob individually turning each pancake.

PRE-SCHOOLER: Our Experience of Toilet Training Regression and What Helped

PRE-SCHOOLER: Our Experience of Toilet Training Regression and What Helped
At the end of 2017 we decided it was the perfect opportunity to start potty training Isabella, at 2.5 years old she was able to communicate when she needed the toilet and we had around a month with no real commitments. Though I felt very apprehensive about the whole 'potty training' world we took the plunge and put her straight into pants. After a few accidents Isabella seemed to take to potty training really well; my worst fears quickly washed away and I started to feel confident that we could do this big milestone in her life. Months and months passed where there would only be the odd accident, mainly if we were on a long journey or not near a suitable toilet quick enough. I couldn't believe our luck!
