This plus that equals…. potty training dilemmas

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. The time has finally come in our house for potty training and we are in full flow. It ain’t easy, that’s for sure. There are a surprising amount of potty training dilemmas we have come across, so I thought I’d share them and be of absolutely no help to any parent anywhere.

A Very Common Problem

So I’m just going to say it, because it isn’t something to be embarrassed about. Around 62% of women will suffer some form of incontinence during pregnancy and around 50% will continue to have issues after childbirth. So why don’t we talk about it? The guys at Hartmann are trying to help.  Continue reading A Very Common Problem

Weleda Baby Range – Review

When I said to my mum I had been sent some of the Weleda Baby Range for L, her first reaction was ‘ooo that will be lovely then’ closely followed up with ‘did you get any of the adult range?’ said in a very hinty manner.

Bless her, I hadn’t been sent any of the adult range or I would have loved to have shared with her. I think Mum’s reaction says it all though. Weleda have a well earned reputation for quality products and we can see why.  Continue reading Weleda Baby Range – Review

Sound’s cool right? So here are few things for you to consider doing while you are stuck at home with your baby:- Continue reading Things to do for stay at home mums from newlookbingo.com

Things to Know about Working from Home #2

Don’t apologise for being a parent

When I started blogging two years ago the aim was to help me find a way, any way, to stay at home. I tried a few different things, took a few courses and found myself working as a Social Media Manager. I was able to leave my admin job and am now officially self employed. I thought I would start sharing some of the things I have learnt along the way.

Just because I play with my son doesn’t mean I’m not professional 

As soon as people find out I am a mum, a mum who works to stay at home with her son, they all of a sudden seem to think I am incapable of doing a job, this often left me feeling I had to justify myself and do more, I’m sure this is the same for stay at home Dad’s too.  What I have come to find though is that apologising for being who I am doesn’t help and here’s why.  Continue reading Things to Know about Working from Home #2

Our Review of the Motorola Focus 85

For the last few weeks we have been using the Motorola Focus 85 HD WiFi video monitoring camera.

We have had various home cams over the last year or so, so far they have all been static so I was really excited that with the Motorola Focus 85 we could zoom, pan and tilt the camera remotely.
