Little Finger Door Stoppers: Competition

With summer upon us, albeit for only a few days, no doubt that many of us had our doors open throughout the house creating a gentle breeze. The worry and concern for many parents are doors slamming and catching a little toddlers fingers, something that can easily be prevented with Little Finger Door Stoppers.

Babies and toddlers are simply unaware of the injuries that can be caused by fingers being trapped in a door. Door Stoppers help to prevent baby fingers from being trapped and they are very easy to fit, simply slipping over the side or top of a standard door to create a gap preventing the doors from closing fully.

Worlds Most Expensive Car Seat at £10,605

Little G-Man is almost out of his Silver Cross Simplicity car seat as he continues to pile on the weight trying his hardest to impersonate Stretch Armstrong, and so our hunt for a new car seat began.

As we both suffer with bad backs, we decided to invest in a swivel car seat and considered the Britax Dualfix and Maxi Cosi Axiss 360° before finally deciding on the Nuna Rebl. It gets great reviews and offers more reclining positions than others, so just before placing our order, we ran a compatibility check to make sure it could be fitted in our car and it failed!

So a £395 car seat has now cost us over £10,500!

Choosing A Car

Car seats to one side, we now had to research and decide on a car to buy. Pre Little G-Man, we used to replace our cars every 3 years, but when we bought the Ford Kuga back in 2012, after part-exchanging my beloved BMW 123d M-Sport Coupe, the plan was to keep it as long as possible and run it into the ground.

Baby Sleep – Whats the secret?

Whats the secret to baby sleep? Nearly 9 months into being a Dad, sleep is quite possibly THE biggest thing I miss and remember almost taking up religion just to pray our little man took to it as soon as possible.

Right now we are at the stage where most nights we settle down around 7pm after his bathtime and night feed, but it doesn’t seem long when I used to do the dream feed around 11pm.

What Music Sends a Baby to Sleep?

Like most parents this was a question we asked in the first few weeks. We’d tried everything from sounds to replicate noises from the womb, to Jamie Cullum, with differing results, none of which were completely fool proof. Eventually we found one collection of music that has now been working for over 8 months – Baby Lullaby: Piano Lullabies with Nature Sounds of a Thunderstorm for Baby Sleep.

Introducing Lumps & Finger Foods – Month 3 of our Weaning Journey

Little G-Man has now been on his weaning journey for 3 months now and gone are the jars of HiPP Organic Stage 1 smooth foods and in came the meals containing lumps and bumps, meaning he can no longer just suck his food up – he’s got to work for it 🙂

Since our last weaning update we have seen a huge amount of change with Little G-Mans habits and his personality continues to change as he becomes more strong-willed with every day. We fear that stubbornness is just around the corner.

His frustration levels are on the increase as he thinks he’s fully independent and doesn’t need our help at feeding times. He MUST have something in his hand at mealtimes, preferably a spoon just so he can wave it in the air and bang it on his food tray and always shows an interest in anything we eat ourselves, reaching out and wanting to try everything.

Lullaby Trust launch new Sudden Infant Death Syndrome website

Baby charity The Lullaby Trust has today launched a new dedicated website for young parents, in a bid to tackle rising rates of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) in babies born to teenage mums.

The Lullaby Trust

The Lullaby Trust

Babies born to mothers below the age of 20 are four times more likely to die of SIDS than those born to mums aged 20 and over according to the latest figures on unexplained deaths in infancy, released by the Office for National Statistics.

Although the cause of SIDS is not known, there are steps that can be taken to reduce the risk. The new Little Lullaby website, http://www.littlelullaby.org.uk, backed by The Big Lottery Fund will provide young and expectant parents with the opportunity to learn what they can do to lower the risk of SIDS. The Lullaby Trust works to promote information on safer sleep to all parents with the ultimate goal of halving the number of SIDS deaths by 2020.
