Parents know that although the nights along, the days go fast. Before you know it, those ickle baby hands and feet seem giant, and it can be hard to remember just how dainty they once were. This review looks at one of (many) variants of mess free baby prints – is it really so easy to create a lasting impression of those wee fingers and toes?
Let’s face it, we’ve all had that moment where we’ve desperately panicked in the baby changing room, not knowing what to do with our poop covered little ones. Can I salvage the situation with baby wipes? Do I do a rush job and dash straight home? Is it an OK thing to hose down your baby in the KFC sink? Without a doubt, there are factors that increase the “Sod’s Law” chances of being faced with a code brown; read more below (and let us know your own guaranteed ways in the comments below).
It’s been over 4 months since little mister has arrived (somehow!). This leads me to something I’ve been dreading, something that I’ve been putting off for a few months now… the post-pregnancy diet. I’ve never been one to stick to a diet; the initial enthusiasm quickly wanes once my wine and chocolate have been taken away and end in a mega-binge that usually leaves me bigger and less athletic than before. Past exercise regimes have suffered a similar fate, with couch to 5k ending after 4 weeks because “it looked a bit rainy out”, badminton ending as “we’d be better off investing in equipment to work out from home” and the exercise bike at home ending as it had too many coats hanging off it. My weight has always yo-yo’d, but in recent years has been much harder to lose. Having hit my pre-pregnancy weight months ago to then gain even more weight since, I felt compelled to make the change. This time I have a very good incentive to get fitter (my little mister, and my future wedding), and maternity leave is a great time to form these new habits, away from the allure of office cakes and vending machines.
