The Baby Show

The other Saturday I headed off to London with my dear old mother (I'm sure she will say less of the old please!)

I had been offered a free ticket by Emma's Diary, they sent me back in Febuary and were lovely enough to ask if I wanted to go again.

Off course I said yes as I love being able to see all the new baby must haves! 
Though now Rupert is in his toddler years I feel I'm out of the baby baby niche now!
*Sad Face*

The Baby Show is a great place to go as a parent to be or a new parent as you can see all the baby essentials and get hands on with them. You can even have the professionals show you how the products work!!!

This time I didn't have Rupert with me so I was able to get stuck in! 

I met the lovely  Sarah and Amy Beeson NewArrivalBook and had a lovely chat. Sarah is so warm and friendly and very easy to talk to and Amy funnily enough is just as lovely as her mother.

They have written a baby help book and from the sounds of it, it really is a must buy for new parents.... First timers to those seasonal parents lol!

I watched a bit of the icandy fashion show, the pushchairs are gorgeous but o couldn't help snigger to myself that the models no way looked like brand new mummies!
The messy hair and pjs were most definitely missing!

Whilst having a bit of a perv at the  icandy pushchairs I decided this yellow one was my favourite!

Rupert has never had a pushchair and I feel I missed out on the new pushchair fun with him.

I came across the Bennetts for Babies  stand and had a nice chat with Katie who told me all about the brand and its benefits. I got a big bag of samples and I'll be doing a separate post on them in the next few days.

I came across the Cheeky Wipes stand, I've been keen to find out more about reusable wipes but I've never really got round to it. After speaking to Vanessa I really feel I may give them ago!
Buying baby wipes is so last year!  

My favourite stand had to be BabyNatal ......Why? 
Well because they had gorgeous Frugi clothes for sale!!! 

I met Dean from DaddyNatal who was really lovely and genuine and he gave me a bit of a mini pep talk about blogging!

I met some ladies from Ourplace who were there promoting an online parent course and antenatal course.
Both are available 24/7.
The antinatal course is run by registered midwives and NHS health professionals based on Solihull approach group.

It was nice going with my mum but because she was there she made sure I didn't spend anything. 
Always such a party pooper!! 

These are my goodies that I came home with: 

Did you go along to The Baby Show? Did you enjoy it?

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
