Bepanthen Protects

For the past few weeks we have been taking part in the Bepanthen Protects Challenge. We have been Bepanthen Nappy Care Ointment during every nappy change to help care for Tommy's delicate skin and protect from the causes of nappy rash.

Did you know that a newborns skin is 40% thinner  than an adults, which makes it more sensitive to irritants that can cause nappy rash?

Bepanthen Nappy Care Ointment has been created with a kind to skin formula. It is fragrance, colour and preservarive free and contains Provitamin B5 to help repair the skins natural protective barrier.

I have been appling a thin layer so Tommy's skin after each nappy change and after bathing. The cream had a non sticky formula so it's really quick and easy to apply. To make life easily the cream has a flip top lid  does not need to be cleansed away at the next nappy change. I've kept a tube at my changing station at home and a small tube in my bag for using on the go. For the past few weeks I've noticed less irritation on Tommy's skin, perviously he had some redness caused by friction from nappies but this has not be a problem recently.

I've been really impressed with this nappy ointment and will be continuing to use it daily as part of our changing routine. Why not take the #bepanthenprotects challenge yourself and try it as part of your changing routine?

Eco Friendly Play With Green Toys

Recently I've been taking small steps towards more eco friendly parenting, you can read my post on testing out planet friendlier nappies here. This weeks post is looking at eco friendly play.
Did you know that 90% of the toy market is made up of plastic toys? These toys often have a short lifespan and  mostly can not be recycled . They often come packed in endless cardboard, ties and plastics which add to our landfill.
I was determined to find an eco friendly toy brand and was delighted to discover Bigjigs Toys do an amazing range called Green Toys.

About Green Toys The Green Toy range is made from 100% recycled materials! The toys are primarily created from recycled milk cartons, which I love as my boys drink gallons of milk.

All the toys are packaged in 100% recycled cardboard with no unnecessary waste . The natural…

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 …

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…
