Bepanthen Bedtime Challenge


As us mums/dads/carers know, making sure your baby gets a good night sleep is a must.
One it stops them from being complete utter terrors the next day and two you get to have you well earned rest.
Without those precious little bundles of cuteness sleeping, we end up like the walking dead and no matter how trendy zombies are it is not a good look!

Nappy rash is right up there at the top when trying to tick off your bedtime check list.
If the little one has a sore bottom, you know that the little one won't be having a good nights sleep!

Would you sleep well with a sore bum?
No, I don't think I would either.


Babies and routines go hand in hand.
Babies love routine and getting the night time routine spot on can really have you skipping out of your little ones room full of joy.


Ru and sleep have a bit of a love hate relationship at the moment.
I am currently sporting the zombie look and it really isn't doing me any favours!

He used to sleep amazingly, then something switched and he now is completely anti-sleep.
Sometimes I give in battling against him and let him pass out in the lounge, so I can at least chill out a little.
On other days....when I'm feeling stronger willed I will stick to the normal routine and sometimes it works and sometimes it fails completely.
I do think this is all down to his development issues and my concerns over him having ASD.

My routine that works for Ru every now and then but worked liked magic on all the other boys (and still does) is:

6pm Bath with bedtime bath bubbles,
6.45pm warm milk
7pm Story, bed, kisses and hugs.

Also after bath time, I rub in a calming lotion on their chests,
Bepanthen nappy rash cream on their clean bottoms;
as applying a barrier cream to their bottoms helps prevent nappy rash from occurring, specially when a nappy is going to be on for such a long period of time.
Lavender bags placed inside their pillow cases (my secret weapon!!)

No screen time after 6, as too much screen time as we all know doesn't help a child calm down.


A great night sleep doesn't always happy but when it does you know the next day is going to be a great one!

Ru does on occasion suffer from nappy rash, but since using Bepanthen after his bath and again in the morning, we haven't had an issue!

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…
