Gumi Gem - Teething Necklace and competition

Now Ella is coming up to 6 months we now have the next big step! Teething!!

She has just got over her 3rd set of immunisations and happy again, and then I am sure in the next couple of weeks the dribbling, crying, red cheeks and discomfort will start.

Ella has also just started to show an interest in toys and grabbing things. And so when I heard about the Gumigem jewellery I was interested to find out more

Gumigem is a UK family run business who create award winning jewellery designed to look amazing but for baby in mind.

I was kindly send a  heart shape necklace and its so gorgeous I plan to wear it most of the time when around Ella. You wouldn't really know it was baby related just a piece of outfit jewellery.

The necklace is made out of silicon, completely chewable and washable. It is BPA and PVC free like you would find a dummy teat or baby spoon.

Now babies always love to pull on hair and necklaces so this is perfect, she can play with it and also have a little chomp which will hopefully relieve the discomfort on those poor little gums. As I can always wear it I know I wont be without it even when we will be out and about.

So overall I love this product, something so simple will cause so much relieve for months to come!

              Here she had a play with it, but would never leave her with it due to the cord

There are plenty of designs to choose from check the out on the GumiGem website HERE  or check out their Facebook page

I would now like to give you the opportunity to win a Gumigem necklace worth £12.95

The Tiny Timbers Update

So my little family includes my two gorgeous children, Charlie who is 3 and Ella who is nearly 6 months.

Charlie was born 6 weeks premature back in 2011, which was an emotional rollercoaster for us all. He made a surprise appearance, and spent 2 weeks in Bath hospital NICU. He is generally happy, doesn't have much patience, but a very well mannered and loving little boy. He currently goes to pre school 2 days a week which gives mummy the time to spend with Ella.

Ella Threatened to come early, at 31 weeks, but her birth was delayed and finally she entered the world in 2014 at 37 weeks. She is completely different to Charlie, much more happier, content but doesnt sleep! We have just started weaning as she is constantly hungry.

I cant wait to update my blog on watching my children grow! Perfect Memories!

Moby Wrap

Baby Wearing, is a term frequently used and is now a popular trend when it comes to carrying a newborn or young baby.

There are plenty of benefits which include reduces crying, increased learning and promotes a strong attachment.

With my first I was hardly confident carrying my little boy in my arms let lone tie him to my front and just let him sleep. He was never a contented baby and ended up sitting with him for hours trying to soothe him.

Ella on the other hand is much easier, she can be put down, she plays a bit, smiles and gurgles away until she falls asleep again. Easy I thought! Well until 2 weeks ago and my poor little girly had her 3rd lot of injections.

She has since required me to carry her around 24/7. Shes very unsettled and wont sleep anywhere.

Charlie my 3 year old has been getting frustrated as I cant spend quality time with him playing let lone clean the house!

So after speaking to a few friends they suggested I try a sling, and a lovely friend let me borrow her Moby wrap to try.

The Moby wrap is a very large piece of material, which takes a few attempts to tie correctly. But the wrap comes with a great instruction book and a dvd.

Once the wrap is on, you can leave it on most of the day and just pop baby in and out. First time I popped Ella in she wasnt high enough, you must make sure you can kiss your babies forehead so they are not in a position to restrict their breathing. But after trying the wrap again and tying tighter it was perfect.

She snuggled down and I was able to carry on with everything I needed to do, as the weight is evenly distributed between both shoulders it felt very comfy and hardly any weight at all. she is currently only 14lbs and she felt as light as a feather.

After a few minutes of being carried around she fell asleep!! Ahh bliss. It was perfect that if I wanted to (and the weather was better) we could have gone for a lovely walk and not even disturbed her and the worry of pushing a pushchair.

The wrap is suited for babies up to 35lbs so we will have lots of use out of it yet, especially in the summer. I do wish I tried the wrap right from the minute she was born as I can imagine its amazing still carrying your new baby next to you like a fourth trimester.

I will post some more photos when we are out and about.

Have you tried baby wearing? Would love to hear from you.
