We’ve all been on a summer holiday!

Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting! Now we’re home from holiday and back into our usual routine I’m very much in the holiday blues mode! It doesn’t help that the weather has turned autumnal bordering wintry and London looks grayer and duller than it has in months… But hey, at least we’ve had a holiday and been lucky enough to have enjoyed it very much! I have some fantastic memories and I also enjoyed using all my ‘Holiday Must Have […]

Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting! WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN! BEN AND HOLLY LIVE TICKETS UP FOR GRABS!

For the first time ever our favourite fairy and elf will be leaving […]

Sweet little Bundle Bean!

Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting! The Bundle Bean (£29.99) is essentially a square of double sided material, fleece one side and waterproof material with a pocket the other. However, this one square of material turns into quite a few handy little gadgets indeed! It’s a footmuff for the buggy, car seat, bike seat or even front style sling and on top of that can be used as a play mat, blanket or a changing mat! Now, holidaying in September on the […]

Swim toddler swim!

Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting! We used the Zoggs Miss Zoggy Bobin from Mothercare (£27.99 – available with suitability for ages 2 – 3 or 4 – 5) before we holidayed just a couple of times so that we could see if we needed it or not as it’s quite bulky with all the floats. It has 4 floats each side and as the child gets more confident you remove them symmetrically. I decided that you can never be too safe and […]

Swim baby swim!

Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting! When Florence was 6 months old we went on holiday for the first time with a little one and I took the Mothercare Baby Swim Seat (£15) with me. She absolutely loved the freedom of being able to move round the pool on her own while I supervised and I knew that I would use it again for Jimmy too! We took it with us to Portugal this time and he, just like his big sister before […]

Snooze toddler snooze!

Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting! We are massive Trunki fans in this house and always take ours with us when we travel. I love the fact that they are ride on toys as well as super practical and they look really cute too! My daughter is Florence Mary Lady bird so we got her the Harley Ladybird one and when I gave birth to my son Jimmy Buster Bumblebee he simply had to have Bernard Bee! (I just hope if I […]

Snooze baby snooze!

Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting! Now, originally I was going to review the Snoozeshade Original  (£19.99) as it was the only ‘Snooze’ buggy product we hadn’t used yet but silly old me forgot to flipping pack it! I don’t know how, it was on my list but somehow the organisational skills I was trying very hard to apply were somehow failed and I made a boo boo. I will in that case review the original sometime soon on another post […]

Cover me Bebe!

Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting! Not being a worrier about exposing my boobs while breast feeding I don’t use a nursing cover at home but felt when abroad it might be appropriate to show a little modesty. I decided to take with me the Bebe Au Lait nursing cover (£27.99) and I’m surprised at how handy I found it but for different reasons than I initially thought I would! Now, first let me tell you about the cover. It’s light and […]

Lansin ‘oh’ how you helped me!

Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting! I express milk every day but going on holiday I needed a pump which was small, easy to clean and most importantly quick at expressing. I chose this one for holidaying because of the small size mainly but when I tried it out just before going, it was the short time it took me to pump a bottle which made up my mind. It is also compatible with all regular sized bottles so I […]

Sterile dummies!

Askamum love my blog, ooo-errr how exciting! I knew it would be as easy to sterilise Jimmy’s dummies whilst in our villa as it is at home but I really thought I needed to have something to take out with me to the beach etc. The Milton Mini Portable Soother Steriliser seemed like the perfect answer, unfortunately it wasn’t really all that! First of all I have to say it’s a nice little idea and it does do the job whilst being easy to […]
