One of the best toys that Chloe has is VTech crawl and learn ball! Chloe got this toy when she was 3 months old, and from the very beginning she loved it.
This ball has everything going for it:
– music and lots of different noises which baby of any age loves.
– lights which entertain baby from a very young age .
– buttons to press, little ribbons to pull etc
– teaches your baby about basic numbers, colours and animals.
– rolls on its own encouraging crawling.
– lots of different melodies and sayings.
This ball helped us with tummy time when Chloe was little. You know how hard it is to keep your little one lying on the belly for longer than a minute or if you are lucky few minutes. This ball was keeping Chloe entertained during her tummy time for up to 15 minutes. There is lots of lights and pictures on it and with the movement it was mesmerising for Chloe
Then came the crawling time. I must say this is where the ball really came in to action. Because by that time Chloe loved to play with it whenever the ball would roll away from her she would try to get to it …. And she would try very hard…. Once crawling started, she would be chasing the ball all the time…
I would recommend buying it. You will see how much fun your baby will have with it.

ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER MEAL …
CHICKEN WITH BEETROOT
As we all know beetroot is full of goodies and vitamins. What makes beetroot perfect for baby is sweetness of this fab vegetable!
– 200g of beetroot (cooked or raw)
– 1 small carrot
– 100g of sweet potatoes
– 100g of leek
– 100g of chicken/turkey breast
– 500ml of chicken stock (one with no salt)
– couscous/rice optional
– 1 tbs of lemon juice
Cooking method :
Grate beetroot on a small grater. If you are using cooked beetroot leave it on the side until later, if you are using raw beetroot add it in to cooking with the rest of the vegetables.
Cut all vegetables and chicken in cubes, if your baby eats solid foods cut all vegetables in to small pieces which the baby can eat.
Put all in to the cooking pan with chicken stock, bring to boil and simmer for around 30 min (until vegetables are soft). Add. The lemon juice and :
Option 1: just serve
Option 2: blend all and serve
Option 3: blend all and add couscous or rice
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!
ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER MEAL ….
PASTA WITH COURGETTES
Ingredients – 1 courgette
– 50ml of single cream
– 1 small chicken breast (cooked)
– 2 tsp of Parmesan
– 1 tsp of basil (chopped)
– 50g of baby pasta
Grate you courgette.
Cut you cooked chicken in to a very small cubes (I have just friend the chicken breast in a little bit of olive oil).
Cook your pasta according to cooking instructions.
Fry courgette in a little bit of olive oil for about 5 minutes (until it softens)
add cream and basil and cook for around 3 minutes. If needs add a little bit of water to the sauce. Add pasta then Parmesan and it’s ready to eat !
If your baby is still not eating solids you can blend all of it or blend everything except pasta. Good thing about this recipe is that you can make it in to a grown up version by just adding salt and pepper in to it to season! Hope that you and your baby will enjoy it !
