WTBW | Rockin' Baby Out Of Africa Romper

Being lovers of the outdoors, it makes sense that as soon as the weather turns nice, we all don our shorties and play in the summer sun. Little ones can be a bit hard to dress in the warm weather though as, if your children are anything like mine, as soon as you stick a pair of shorts on them, they drop trou' and strip themselves off.

That's where my love of rompers came in. I just think they are so funky and functional. And what a better company to get one from than Rockin' Baby who donate one piece of clothing to those in need, for every piece of clothing sold as part of their Mother to Mother/ Child to Child campaign with a philanthropic mission of one-for-one. You buy, they give.

Aldi Specialbuys | Kids Room Range

I love Aldi as no matter when we go in, just for shopping, we come out with all sorts that I didn't even know what we wanted but just had to have. No matter what is on offer, there is always something that we need.

This week is the time for the kids room range and the Specialbuys that are on offer are amazing, and a great deal for us parents. Aldi’s Specialbuys Kids Room range, which goes into stores on 17th July, whilst stocks last, offers a whole host of products for the kids room.

What You Should Be Checking Annually To Keep Your Family Safe

It’s so important that you keep on top of maintaining your home so that everything is in working order. If you don’t, you could be putting the safety of your family in jeopardy. Here are a few things you should be checking annually to keep your family safe. 

Your fire alarm
One thing you should be checking annually is your fire alarm. A lot of people leave them once they have been installed, but you need to replace the battery when it runs out. You need to make sure it’s working, as you could all be at risk if it doesn’t go off when there is a fire. You should test it to make sure it’s working correctly and replace the fire alarm if it’s not working ASAP. You should also check your carbon monoxide alarm so that you know it’s working too.

Incontinence Should Not Be A Taboo Subject!

Incontinence is a very common problem in society. For example, during the later stages of pregnancy, a lot of strain can be put on the female's bladder which can sometimes cause incontinence. All that pressure from the little bundle of joy weighing down, leaves the pelvic floor muscles in tatters and can cause women to suffer with incontinence.

Unfortunately, incontinence isn't something that is spoken about much in our society. It's a taboo subject that people skirt around and don't want to talk about. But it should be talked about, we shouldn't make new mums feel like they ca't talk about things because it's uncomfortable. 

Stress incontinence happens, and there is nothing to be embarrassed about. I mean, you've just been through one of the hardest things you'll ever have to go through, giving birth, which means someone has been peering down there whilst you squeeze a tiny person out of you.

The Great Yorkshire Show | Win a Stoats Goody Bag

As you can tell by my blog name, I am a great lover of Yorkshire and so I am excited to see that the Great Yorkshire Show hits our shores. The Great Yorkshire Show is England's Premier Agricultural Event and runs from Tuesday 12 - Thursday 14 July 2016.

Featuring the best of British farming, it gives first-hand experience of agriculture and rural life through demonstrations and exhibitions as well as a ‘not to be missed’ insight into the very latest in the agricultural industry.

Stoats, the 100% natural porridge brand, will be there at stand 591 with oaty nibbles to power visitors to the Great Yorkshire Show through the day. And to celebrate the fact that Stoats are there, they are giving one of my lucky blog readers the chance to win a goody bag, packed full of their delicious wares.
