It’s Baby Bathtime

Baby bath time in our house used to be so much fun but nowadays Freya wants to use the bath to climb and has figured out that she can pull the plug out to drain the water!

We received an insane amount of baby bath related products before she was born but rather than risk trying out different products, we stuck with what we’d tried from the beginning and the remaining products sat on their shelves waiting to be opened.

Fast forward almost 11 months and Freya uses an array of products from different brands but our favourite for getting clean and smelling amazing is always Child’s Farm.

Weaning with Lickalix

If you’re a follower of my Instagram page, you may have seen that I’ve been creating some food for Freya lately using the baby cubes from Lickalix. I thought I’d write-up a full post review of the cubes in case you don’t and are more of a reader than a watcher.

The Lickalix baby cubes come in 4 different flavours; 2 savoury and 2 sweet.

When Soohu comes into your life

Before Freya was born, we opted to buy a baby carrier knowing full well, I would love using it for walks sometimes over taking the travel system out and about. I was always a little wary about the idea of slings and wraps, so opted for a traditional baby wearing carrier instead. When I was offered the chance recently to try out the Soohu Sling from Diono, I was excited and intrigued to see if I preferred it to my usual baby wearing carrier.

In order to put it to the test, I tried it out during a family walk as well as in the garden to potter around at home. The 5 in 1 sling has a range of comfortable positions depending on the size of baby and how best the sling feels on you.

We swapped between two different styles of baby carry; the hip carry and the front carry. We tried out the forward facing carry but Freya was having none of that one (probably not wise to test it out on a teething grumpy baby)!

The most comfortable position for me was having Freya on my hip due to her being the weight she is now, but I can imagine if I’d had the sling from the newborn days, I would have loved to have her snuggled into my chest. She’s 8 months now and very long so carrying her in general is getting harder but I have to be admit the sling made it that bit easier and didn’t seem to have a big impact on my left shoulder which carried the weight of the sling itself.

Overall I really like that the sling goes from 0-24 months or 3.6 kg to 15.9kg. When Freya was born she was actually under the 3.6kg weight due to being 2.5 weeks earlier but in those early days, I wasn’t exactly brave enough to venture out baby wearing and opted for my pushchair instead. I definitely think with baby no 2 (in the future before you think I’m announcing a pregnancy), I would use the sling from the early days as close contact with baby is something I absolutely loved from the early days. I still love it don’t get me wrong, but it’s a lot harder when your baby is nearing 20lb!
