Fruity Easter nests

As part of the weaning process with froggy I'm trying to income him in as much of the cooking as possible. 

Must of the time that means he goes in the sling whilst I cook. But this week I decided to go the whole hog and make easter nests. 

We had his aunt and uncle (1 and 7) visiting, so I gave them each a tub of cornflakes. 

Froggy loved playing with his tub of cornflakes. 

I
I melted the mix on the hob (butter, chocolate,  sugar) then poured into the tubs for each child to stir their own mix. As you can see it isn't a very thick mix it only takes a small amount to hold the nests firm. 


Next instead of mini eggs I copied some fruit to top the Nests. 



We put uncle bear in charge of the decoration

Although both froggy and Bella were desperate to get stuck in - note the Chocolate mix war paint on the side of his head!

  1. Lucas says - Now, everyone would say that I would be 'rude' about this post but as fruit is one of my favourite foods, I LOVE this post so much. These look so yummy and it's soooooo cool to have such a young member of the GL Gang. High-5's lil' dude ;)

Little Bloom- Cloth Nappy reviews

If you are a newbie in cloth its hard to know what to buy. I've been using Cloth Nappies for 16 months with my first born, and am preparing to have two in cloth when my daughter arrives in May. You could say I'm somewhat of cloth nappy pro.
I've moved on from my start up stash, and invest in nappies that will see us through til froggy potty trains, and ideally ones his baby sister can use afterwards too!
Pocket nappies are great for this purpose and this week I'm reviewing the little bloom nappies
You can grab little bloom nappies on amazon from as little as £2.89 delivered. So they are a cheap option but are they cheerful enough to do the job?

Breastfeeding past six months

Hi! This Blog post is now Two and half years old (Yikes!). It's one of my most visited posts, so I thought I would update it for all you lovely new visitors. I actually ended up breastfeeding froggy past a year, where I found myself pregnant with number 2 and decided to continue through my pregnancy and try to tandem nurse. We have just ended our breastfeeding journey- somewhat shy of 400 days. It was a lot longer than I had ever anticipated. But great. It helped keep a bond strong through becoming a family of four, then me returning to work. Nursing an older child is very different from nursing a six month old. From about 18 months he would nurse once a day (bedtime) and maybe through the occasional grazed knee and long haul flight. I'm not sure I will nurse his sister as long, and I know I definitely wouldn't have nursed him to this point if I hadn't had become pregnant so quickly after (weird logic huh?). So please don't read this as necessarily a post urging y…

The Benefits of my large Family

When it comes to raising children some  people say it takes a village, some say it comes with experience.  I'm pretty fortunate as thanks to my large extended family,  when my son was born I had both. The last year has been pretty incredible for our family- there's four women in my family who have had babies in the space of the year.  Being a new mum is hard, you suddenly feel like your friends without kids don't understand you. But after the birth of my son I automatically had a tribe who understood me. I'm pretty sure having our children together has bound us closer together and for me personally has been a huge buffer against PND.


Here's 5 (of the many reasons) I love being part of a big family

1. I have back up- All the time.
When my milk came in on day 3 and froggy (who was tongue tied) wouldn't latch, it was my mum I turned to for help. As her baby ( my younger sister) was only 10 months old and still nursing, she was great support, as was my sister, who …
