Stressless baby feeding - Tommee Tippee Perfect prep machine

Tommee Tippee Perfect prep machine £120 - (shop here)

"The Tommee Tippee closer to nature perfect prep machine makes a fresh bottle at just the right serving temperature in less than 2 minutes." 

Having a baby is an incredible and life changing moment there is no denying it, to think you have created life and the overwhelming love you feel for them the moment you see their face is undoubtedly breathtaking. But lets be completely honest it is also life changing as not everything in a daytime routine is as quick & simple, sleep isn't allowed anymore and taking a shower is classed as me time. Feeding is the most repetitive activity you will do and if you bottle feed your baby like i do making up a fresh bottle each time and waiting for it to cool can be a soul destroying 10 minutes at 3am whilst your hungry baby is screaming in your ear.

Perfect smooth skin - Cuppa Joe coffee body scrubs

Cuppa Joe St Clements coffee body scrub - £12.50* (Shop here)

Exfoliating is a massive part of my skin care regime and something i do very regularly to help keep my skin nice and smooth. For quite some time i have been using natural sugar based exfoliators as exfoliators with plastic beads don't break down and then go into the sea so aren't environmentally friendly. Cuppa Joe are extremely ethical as a company as not only are all their ingredients 100% natural and don't contain any nasty chemicals the ingredients used are from fair-trade farmers. This pleases me as i know when i'm using it not only is it benefiting my skin i'm also doing my part.

My Second Labour

All has been a little quite on my blog for the last three weeks and that would be due to me finally having my beautiful little girl. I thought it would be good to return with my labour story although i'm not much of a story teller, if your squeamish or not overly fond about labour maybe miss out on this one.

My due date was on the 23rd of May and rather surprisingly (cause what baby actually comes on their due day) in the early morning i started to get contractions, i let them run their course and got into a bath to relax however after a few hours they fizzled out. An hour or so later they returned to about one every ten minutes but i was getting horrific pain in my back so i called the ward and went in to be examined only for the contractions to stop again as soon as i got there. To help keep a record of my contractions so i knew exactly how far apart they where and how long they was lasting for i got a app on my phone (simply called contractions) and would greatly advise it. Whilst being at the hospital I was hooked up to a machine so they could monitor babies heartbeat for an hour and after an examination was told i was 2cm dilated so labour was happening just slowly so was sent home. I was extremely disappointed that i had a day of contractions and no baby at the end of it but went home and got some rest as advised waiting for it to happen.
