Weaning

I can't believe bump is 4 months already it has gone so quickly but in a weird way it feels like he's always been here, I'm sure every parent knows what I mean by that?

So as some of you may know I have 4 children bump being the youngest and my eldest is almost 16 now.  When it comes to weaning I have done it exactly the same starting at 4 months using packets/jars ( I feel I may be hearing tuts and sighs now ) until I feel they are ready enough to eat 'proper' food.

Bump has been taking a real interested for about a month now to the point of crying when everyone else has dinner and he can't have any, so now he's 4 months I have been trying him with some baby rice and I've been surprised that he hasn't taking too eating as well as the girls did.  He hasn't been to keen on it, I guess maybe he needs to get used to it and it's only been a few days.



I had considered the thought of not using jars/packets etc and cooking for him too but I wouldn't have a clue what to make him? What can he eat? Etc etc and I don't own a blender which I guess would be a necessity.

So I would love to hear how everyone else has weaned their babies? I would really appreciate all your opinions advice etc

Taggies soft n snug bouncer review.

I was recently sent a taggies soft n snug bouncer to review from kids ii.

I was really looking forward to reviewing this as my son was not keen on the basic bouncer we had bought for him and cried most of the time he was in it. So far me and bump are loving the taggies bouncer.



It has lots of lovely features including removable hood, head rest and toy bar. It also has gentle vibration and melodies which is nice not too loud and annoying like some can be.

The chair is suitable from birth up to 11kg and is reclinable which is great as bump often falls asleep while he is sitting in it and you can easily recline it back without waking him by pressing the buttons on either side of the chair.

It also comes with a detachable cuddle toy that which you can Velcro into the harness pocket. Bump loves this and spends a lot of time practising his gripping and biting skills with it.

He loves all the little colourful taggies down the side and will spend ages trying to grab them.

The most important thing about this chair is that it's comfortable for your baby, the seat is deep and such lovely soft material with the addition of the detachable headrest too it's definately a cosy chair it's a shame you can't buy adult ones.

It was really easy to put together but not so easy to dismantle and has no instructions for this.  It had to be taken apart as we were moving and took a while to figure out it would have to be unscrewed instead of just clicked out. 

All in all it is a great chair and me and bump would highly recommend it. There are so many bouncers to choose from but this one definately ticks all the boxes.

Where have I been?

Well it's been a long time since I have posted on my blog and I have been missing blogging so much.  Bump is nearly four months old now and I have been so busy since he was born. You forget how much your little bundle of joy takes over your life plus already having three other children it's been hectic.  We have also moved house and said goodbye to London and our pokey flat and we are now in West Yorkshire in a lovely big house, we've not been here long but so far everyone is loving it.  It's good to be back and looking forward to catching up with everyone else's blogs too.  I also have a review for you from taggies too which will be up later, hope you enjoy it and have a lovely weekend.
