I came across this on the website while looking at different baby stuff (I am addicted to shopping for things for Chloe) and couldn’t believe that someone has came up with such an invention. 


Why cry mini -baby cry analyzer. Apparently this machine will tell you why your baby is crying : is it because they are hungry? bored ? sleepy? unwell? … Really?? 

 I  love gadgets and everything what makes life easier but this one is a step to far in my opinion. Do we really need something to tell us why our baby is crying? Are we really that lazy and in such a rush to get answers that we don’t have the time or patience to learn about our baby? To learn what they sound like when they are hungry  or bored? The first few weeks when you get to know your baby and his/her needs are special and precious …. Isn’t this one of the reasons why we become parent …

 Also is this not dangerous ? Relaying on the machine to tell you what your baby needs ? What if the mashine is wrong ? What if your baby is unwell but the machine tells you that your baby is bored? …

 What is your opinion about it?

Do you have one of those and think that I am wrong ? 

Please share you opinion.  

Have a fab day ! 

BABY CAR MIRROR … Yes or no? 

I haven’t even thought about a car mirror while pregnant, or when Chloe was born. I always seen it as a pointless gadget and one used by paranoid parents…. 

 I have changed my mind when Chloe stopped going to sleep as soon as she heard the car engine (miss those times). When she started being awake in the car and moaning or crying and I couldn’t see what was going on. I had to use my phone camera (the selfie setting) while turned round 90 degreesin my seat  (don’t worry my husband was driving not me) to check what was going in 😊. We now had purchased one and I must say it had made the car journeys much more easy. I would recommend to get one. 

 Have a fabulous day x

BATH SEAT – get one ! 

It’s challenging and emotions when your baby have outgrown the baby bath and you need to move to this big, scary bath. Once you think that you got a hang of bathing in the big bath, get confident and start thinking that this is easy … Your baby learns how to sit …. And doesn’t want to lay … But can’t sit that well yet or crawl …. This is quite difficult isn’t it ? 

 That’s when one of my mum friends told me abut bath seat …. What a brilliant invetion ! It’s great we have used it for around 3 months and it made bath time stress free and so much more fun because we could play in the bath instead of me just holding Chloe all the time. 

 I would definitely recommend getting one! 

SIT ME UP COSY ….  no thanks :-)

I remember looking at it and thinking it’s brilliant ! So we bought it without thinking any more about it.

Turns out it’s not as brilliant as it seemed:

1. The lying position isn’t too good, Chloe would stay in it for 5 minutes and then cry … Looking at it I don’t think that she was comfortable in it.

2. Making it in to a siting upport was another great feature – or that’s what I thought…. When baby needs support when sitting it’s because it goes to the side, fills backwards or forwards …. So having support only on the back doesn’t make any sense.

So we didn’t really use it … Until Chloe was around 4-5 months and when she started learning to sit on her own. I used to put her right inside it and I must say it was great as I could go and do things while she was safety siting secured from every angle.

Would I recommend it? Not for what it’s designed for, but I got my money’s worth of it by using it a baby sit guard …


 I must say before I got pregnant I didn’t know that nappy bins existed 😂 I have to say they are briliant ! I will advance everyone to get one ! They are handy, look good and what’s the most important  locks all of the smelly smells away !   You can gret one in white, pink or blue ! 

I have the Tommee Tippee Sangenic Nappy Disposal System – Pink. It individually seals each nappy away in seconds offering anti-bacterial protection from germs and odours. 


Baby changing bag … We have there everything don’t we ? They weight a tone and there is so many things which we apparently need to carry in it and lots of “must have” gadgets without which we shouldn’t leave the house. I will tell you what in my experience you need and which gadgets I found very good!

1. Portable changing mat.
I have to admit that I got one as a present on my baby shower. I opened it and started saying how nice it is and pretty etc…. then had to ask … eeehhh and what is it??? I didn’t know that you can get or need a portable changing mat with all of those pockets for nappies and wet wipes. I didn’t even thing about how will I be changing my baby when out and about.
I have to say it was one of the best product ever and I have been using it from day one. I have everything in one place and when Chloe need changing I just take my little bag with me. I recommend very highly to get one of those.
2. Wipes Case.
If you use wet wipes with a standard re-sealable top what you notice is that after having them in your changing bag the top stops sticking (there is just so much a packet of wipes can withstand :-)). Also trying to look for the packet of wipes 100 times a day in a changing bag which has everything is very challenging and frustrating.
 Wipes case is so good. It takes wipes inside and keeps in a light fresh inside a plastic case. It has sliding top so you can easily get to your wipes and it attaches in to your pram/changing bag etc. I have the Skip Hop Swipes Wipes Case.

3. Change of clothes.
Always!!! Baby vomit A LOT, explosive poos leak very often ! Make sure you have it at all the time !! I always had a change of clothes on the beginning and then as the time was passing and Chloe was outgrowing her clothes I just stoped putting a spare one in… then while being on a lovely day out in a British Museum with my 8 months old sweetheart her nappy leaked … leaked a lot!

4. Antibacterial wipes.
I go through so many of them ! From the very beginning I was possessed with bacterial and Chloe not getting any of the gems ! So far with my antibacterial wipes and breastfeeding at 9 Months Chloe still hasn’t been sick .

5. Muslin cloth.
Do not leave the house without one. Its handy when it comes to everything and anything.

6. Antibacterial spray. 
The is this baby friendly spray. Its all natural so you can spray toys, dummy or anything with it and it will kill all of the bacteria without any chemical fast to it. Its 100% natural so its safe for babies. I bought all of the different wipes which were leaving chemical aftertaste, dummy steriliser which was so much hassle to use I have used it only once.

7. Stain Removing Wipes
I discovered those very recently and I must say they are brilliant. Have you got use to being covered in vomit or fingers food stains? or having to throw away brand new cute baby top just because you can’t get this stain off ? With those wipes you can wipe the stain away or make is less offensive.

8. Calpol / Teething medications. 
Those are handy to have especially from around 4 months when lots of babies start testing.

9. Toys
Whatever keeps you baby entertained , whatever your baby likes. Something to distract your baby when it gets bored. I always end up with so many toys !!!!

10. Food 
Spare milk if you bottle feed and once your baby starts weaning food is necessary to have. You never know how long you can end up being out, or if your baby for some reason gets hungry though it shouldn’t (it happens quite often :-)).
Girls anything else you have and cannot live without ?? Anything you don’t agree with ?? How big/heavy is your changing bag ?😂

NURSING CHAIR good buy or waist of money????

When you look at photos of nurseries, or set up rooms in the baby shops they always have nursing chair/ feeding chair.

 This automatically makes you think that you need one … But they aren’t the pretties things and they are very expensive. 

My werdict is that it’s a waste of money. Why? If you fallow the NHS guidance on how to look after your new born it will mean that you will have your baby sleeping next to you in your bedroom. When you get up 10 times in the middle of the night to feed, trust me you don’t pick up your baby then move to sit on the chair, you just do it on your bed (I am breastfeeding so not sure if this same applies to bottle feeding). 

Also at 6 months when you move your baby to its room you don’t feed them that often, and if you are lucky enough your baby will be sleeping through the night all together! 

But when you are a first time mum to be you think that it makes sense so you buy one, so did I. Difference is that I bought a lovely armchair which I will be using for much longer than feeding baby. So my advice is use an armchair/chair which you already have or buy one which you love and can use after in your house! 

What is your experience ? What is your opinion? Please share.


 I have been debating long and hard over the walker. I  definitely didn’t want the big walker. Not that there is anything wrong with them but: 1. I don’t like how they look, 2. I reed articles suggesting that they aren’t good for kids 3. I don’t have a space for it. 

 I knew that I wanted a push along walker, for it to support Chloes learning on how to walk. The choice is huge (as with everything when it comes to babies) wooden/plastic, prams/cars, big/small, with activities/without, expensive/cheap.

 For once I think that I took sensible decision and chosen something not too expensive, small, wooden which means that quality is better, and something that she can play with once she walks by herself, but we are not stuck with it for ages.  I have chosen to buy the wooden pram walker. It wasn’t too expensive with a price tag of £35. Chloe can play with it after she learns how to walk but if she does not want to,  it doesn’t matter as it wasn’t expensive and we can just get rid of it.  

 What is important is that it supports her in learning (which a standard walker doesn’t do as it has too much support) . She learns how to balance, how to push, and makes her so much more confident  in her walking. 

She loves it ! She keeps walking up and down, and she could do it all day long. The only problem is she doesn’t know how to turn around 😂😂😂. 



Should you buy it or no ?

 Things to consider:

– It’s very big and takes up lots of space.

– It’s expensive 

– How much use will you get from it? 

 We bought it when Chloe was 4 month old as she only wanted to stand! I thought that this will be a great solution : she can stand, jumped and play.  In our case it was a waste of money. 

 We got Fisher Price Discover ‘N Grow Jumperoo which costed £80 and we used it only a handful of times. Chloe didn’t mind standing in it for 15 min max and then was getting bored. She wasn’t really in to jumping, and as soon as she started crawling she refuses to go in to it. Lots of my Mum friends agrees that in they case it wasn’t worth it. 

My advise would be buy used one, or borrow one from a friend/family. You can see if your baby likes it and if not then you can just return it or get rid of it 😀

Excitment / nightmare of buying a pram! 

Buying a pram was the most exciting bit straight after decorating Chloe’s nursery. Prams are not cheap so there is a lot of pressure to make sure that you pick up the best pram; pram which will be good for new born but also for toddler, practical but good looking, have all of the gadgets but will be simple and quick to use. 

There is a lots of things that everyone tell you too look at, there is also lots of things that no one tells you about, things that you find out about as you start using your pram – I wish I knew about those.

Obvious things to consider while buying pram

– Do you want a travel system or just a pram (travel system seems to be better value for money).

– The size of the pram. Will it fit in to you boot??!! This is an important one as prams are not small. 

– How easy is it to fold. This is important but in my opinion it isn’t a deal breaker. They all are more or less easy to fold, some are just super easy to fold or foldable with one hand. 

– How & where will you be using your pram. In my opinion it’s important only from the size point of view ( if you use it a lot in the city (tube,bus) you want it to be quite compact).  I would advise to look more at the suspension; It doesn’t matter where you are, you want it to be smooth to ride and to be able to cope with uneven surface (you have city pavements which are worst than off road paths in the countryside).   

Things I wish I have know before buying my pram:

– Hood wchih goes all the way down is the best. You use it when baby wants to sleep, so you don’t have to buy sleepshade. You also us it when it is sunny ( normal hood doesn’t protect properly from the sun and baby very often is exposed to it). That saves you money which you would have to spent on an pram umbrella (which btw isn’t very good).

– Big basket isn’t necessary (I use my one only for small things) but one which has a cover is very very good and handy ( whatever you store there is protected from dust and mud & people can’t see what you have in it).

– Height of baby when in the pram, you don’t want your baby to by too low or too high .

– How long will you be using this pram. If you are planning on having 2nd baby close to your nr1 then you should look at prams which will be able to acomodate it. 

– Look at what is included in the price of the pram and what do you need to buy separately.

MOST OF ALL PICK THE ONE THAT YOU LOVE. All of the above are important but you do have to love the way it looks !! This is not negotiable! 

What is good about some of the most popular brands :


PROS – nice colours, very big hood, shopping basket with cover.

CONS – quite flimsy, placement of break, baby seat and carry cot a bit low. 

I Candy :

PROS: nice colours, height of child is perfect, great if you want to use with more than one baby, very solid. 

CONS: expensive, you need to buy a lot of things seperatly, quite big. 

Silver Cross :

PROS – small, perfect height of child’s seat, lots of things included in the price.

CONS: colours could be much nicer, good doesn’t go low enough. 
When it comes to buying your pram its good to ask for opinion of others, compare them, see reviews ect but what is the most important is to make sure that you buy the pram that you love ! If you go for one which meant to be the best but you don’t love it you will regreat it trust me 😊
