Choosing a car seat is one of the most important things you can do for your child. Their safety is obviously of paramount importance; but everyone has a different budget. Whether it be limited or unlimited, we shouldn’t put a price on the safety of our children.
Of course, the type of car we own also has to be considered; not all car seats will fit every car. I own a hatchback and The Husband owns a saloon, so the boys’ car seats fit differently in both our cars. But if you are lucky enough to own a convertible, then the following infographic will help you in choosing a car seat for your child.
Taking care of your child is one of the toughest, but most rewarding jobs in the world. Part of raising children means teaching them right from wrong. Being a parent can also mean countless sleepless nights and a lot of nappies. But most of all, parenting involves raising a happy and healthy child.
Children begin getting their first teeth around 7 to 11 months of age. It is a painful process where your little one might cry uncontrollably at night and may even stop eating. While some parents turn to metaphysical elements, such as the healing properties of amber gemstones, others may opt for over-the-counter medications for assistance with pain management.
Whatever way you choose to handle the situation, it is important for you to know the right foods to feed your kids during this ordeal, as to avoid causing them further distress while maintaining their health and well-being. Listed below are some food items that have been reported to be both nutritious and comforting for your baby during the teething process. Read more
You may be aware that over the last few months I have been sharing our bedwetting journey with you. Bedwetting affects 1 in 4 of four year olds and it is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of. DryNites have produced the ConfidentNites Guide to help you along in your journey.
In the middle of our journey, along with some of the other ambassadors, I went on a sleep retreat and gained some valuable advice from the three experts we met; Yvonne Wake (nutritionist), Selina Sasse (mindfulness expert), and Helen Packham (sleep expert).
The advice, tips and knowledge I gained from the sleep retreat has helped immensely and we introduced a new bedtime routine, which in turn helped with the bedwetting and confidence in both of us. Spiderman helped too!
It’s now time for my final bedwetting update, and this time Jacob makes an appearance!
I hope you have also gained some valuable tips and advice via my series of vlogs.

*This post forms part of my ambassador role for DryNites ConfidentNites.
I mentioned in my last DryNites ConfidentNites post that some of my fellow ambassadors and I were very lucky to be invited along to a sleep retreat at the amazing Alexander House Hotel & Utopia Spa. We were welcomed with a beautiful lunch and then sat down to listen to the three ConfidentNites experts give us some top tips to help on our child’s bedwetting journey.
The experts were nutritionist Yvonne Wake; mindfulness expert, Selina Sasse; and sleep expert, Helen Packham. A few of these tips are included in my second vlog below, but of course to get more help personalised to you & your child you can also view the ConfidentNites guide on the DryNites website. Read more
It seems like we have been potty or toilet training on & off for the last couple of years now. It felt like we started quite early with Jacob and it was only a few months ago that he decided to just go for it himself and get rid of his nappies during the day. He does still have the odd accident though and although he goes to the toilet right before bed, he will occasionally have an accident through the night too. This is completely normal though as at the age of four, 1 in 4 children do still wet the bed so he is not alone. In fact, bedwetting affects more than 900,000 children and young people in the UK.
I am delighted to announce that I have teamed up with Huggies to become a DryNites® ambassador! Throughout my ambassador role I will be taking you on a journey of ways to improve your child’s confidence at nighttime by using DryNites® pyjama pants, which will in turn hopefully improve your confidence too and help you lead your child to eventually have a dry nights sleep.
