MyHummy Baby Sleep Aid Review

If you follow me in on Instagram you will be aware that Tommy has not been sleeping well lately so I was ecstatic to be given the opportunity to review the new Bluetooth MyHummy white noise bear.

Tommy had been sleeping well for a few months. He would go to bed about 7ish then slept through until 5/6am, with the exception of the odd broken night if he was unwell or teething. Then one night the dreaded one year sleep regression kicked in. He woke during the night and it took hours to resettle him, we where in and out if his room, tried taking him in bed with us and then eventually ended up getting up with him in the middle of the night so at least Oliver could get some sleep. This pattern went on for a couple weeks. We where a exhausted and had tried every trick in the book.

To be honest I was doubtful that the MyHummy would make much difference to Tommy's sleep. We had been using  white noise via YouTube on our phones and it was no longer being effective so why would this bear be any different?

First Impressions 

Ash the bear arrived beautifully packed in tissue paper with a tote bag. We chose Ash as I thought the grey and teal colours would work best in boys bedroom. My first impressions was that he was bigger than I expected and felt super soft. We also received one of their new luxurious Royal blankets that perfectly coordinates with the bear. The instruction where clear and easy to follow. It only took a few minutes to download to app and pair it to my phone using Bluetooth. I gave Ash to Tommy so he could see it and play with it before bedtime so he wasn't surprised to find it in his cot. He instantly took a shine to him and gave the bear a big cuddle. So far so good!

Product Features

MyHummy has 5 types of white noise including womb and ocean sounds and you can adjust the volume to a level that suits your baby. The device can be set to sleep sensor mode (it turns its self on when the baby stirs), non stop mode or can play the sounds for a set amount of time while your baby drifts of to sleep. My favourite feature of the MyHummy is that using Bluetooth you can use your phone as a remote control. This means that if you hear your baby stiring you don't have to sneak back into the room to turn the device on you can simple do it from your phone. The bear is fully machine washable which I think is essential for any baby items (just make sure you remove the sound device first).

Myhummy In Action 

The first night we used the MyHummy we set it to sleep senor mode so it would come on whenever Tommy stirred. I placed  the bear at the bottom of his cot  and he settled off to sleep no problems at all with the white noise on. A couple of hours later he started to stir as promised the MyHummy came on and Tommy drifted back off to sleep. This continued through out the night, I think he stired a further two or three times, one time we had to go into the room to give him his dummy but the rest of the night he settled himself. We did notice that the device would come on if myself or husband ran water upstairs or creeked open the stair gate but we worked out how  to adjust the sensitivity of the senor so it only came on if Tommy made a noise. So after weeks of broken sleep we finally got almost a full night's rest!

Since then Tommy has continued to sleep through and has also started sleeping in a little later in the mornings! I honestly can't believe what a difference this product has made to his sleep (and ours!).

The Royal blanket 

The Royal blanket is super soft and luxurious, we have been using it at nap times and out and about in the pushchair. Tommy likes to rub the fabric between his fingers. It would make a lovely gift for a new baby! 

The Verdict 

I honestly can not fault the MyHummy, its a really clever product that's been designed with parents in mind. The Bluetooth and app both function very well and there has been a lot of attention to detail in the design. Thankyou MyHummy for giving us the gift of sleep!

*Disclaimer - The MyHummy was kindly gifted to us in exchange for this review however as always all opinions are my own and I would only ever promote a product I truly believed to be worthy.

Recaro Easylife Stroller Review

Since Tommy turned one in June I've been searching for a lightweight and easy fold stroller. I do love our Flip XT2 pushchair from Mamas and Papa's and still intend to use it for longer walks. However, now Tommy is bigger it can be quite heavy to push at times and although it's relatively compact when folded I do find it rather heavy to lift especially if your trying to juggle a wiggly baby at the same time. 
I spent a good bit of time researching strollers, reading countless reviews and watch YouTube demo videos as I wanted something that would be practical for our needs and look good too. Eventuallylly I decided on the Recaro Easylife in the colour black, the usual RRP is £189.00 but I managed to get it on sale from for £139.00.
First Impressions Setting up the Recaro Easylife was very simple, all I had to do was flip open the chassis and attach the front wheels. Then it was ready to go! The black frame and wheels gives the stroller a more pr…

Micralite FastFold Pushchair Review

We where estastic to have recently been  given the opportunity to try out the new Micralite FastFold Pushchair with our one year old Tommy.  It could not of come at a better time as for the pervious couple of months we had been switching between using  our bigger travel system and light weight stroller depending on the occasion. Ideally I wanted to have one pushchair that was just as efficient for city trips as it was for a bit of country off roading without comprising on comfort and the FastFold promised to do just that. 
First Impressions  Assembling the FastFold was super easy, all I had to do was click on the rear wheels and attach the seat linner and it was ready to go! I thought the product had an overall good quality feel about it. It was sturdy, with large pneumatic tires but still compact in size. I loved the colours and design of the special "Festival" edition. The design is different to most pushchairs as the FastFold is wider at the front than it is at the rear.…

Tips For Creating Instagram Flatlays

If you follow me on Instagram you will know am quite partial to posting a flatlay, I like how they mix up my grid and allow me to be a little creative. I find them really quick and easy to shoot and lighting is rarely an issue (natural lighting only). In no way I am claiming to be an expert but I have learnt a few tricks along.
Backdrop The backdrop is a key element of my flatlays. I tend to use two different textures layered together, this could be a white bedsheet and faux  fur blanket or wooden flooring and a throw.  I like to change the textures seasonally, in winter I favour faux furs and in summer lighter fabrics. I find using the same backdrop several times gives continuity to my feed and inkeeping with the tone. 

Theme & Colour Pallet  Before creating a flatlay I always have rough idea in my head if how I want it to look or what I would like it to portray. The image also has to fit in with my current instagram grid colour pallet. For example when creating the image below …
