Changing to follow on milk with SMA #ad

Me and Eloise were very lucky to recieve some products from SMA we did this via the Insiders Website where you can review products.

So previously we were using aptamil purley because people had recommended it to me. After i received the SMA we got started straight away and i made Eloise her first bottle (no complaints there) she drank it all and seemed to quite like her new milk! 
One thing i do really like about SMA is the tin it comes in as its very easy to recycle (im a bit of an eco warrior) with the aptamil ones there cardboard and plastic and foil so its a pain to seperate those to recycle so most of the time it ends up going in the bin and filling it up!

A downside to the SMA is it dosnt have the bit in lip where you can wipe over the top of the scoop to get it level, but we managed to use the side of the can and it worked well! 
The tin seams to be better for storing the milk as its more air tight than the usual cardboard ones.

So overall im really happy with the milk and we will be switching over to SMA from now on, plus Eloise loves her hooded towel she got in the post. 

Thank you SMA and thank you to the insiders website! I will leave links down below for both of these.
Please leave a comment below if you have used SMA and if not why not and what do you use instead?

Visiting Santa at Trevena Cross Nurseries

Today we took Eloise to visit Santa at Trevena Cross Nurseries in Breage, Cornwall. We took her last year when she was a lot


younger and it was great, but it was even better this year!

They had a little market on selling stuff from local businesses, like jewelry, bread, cheese, photos, crafts etc.

Then they had the santas grotto which is amazing, as your in the que they brought round chocolates, then there was a snow globe which you could stand behind and have a photo which looked amazing! There was also a enormous polar bear and fake snow and a talking owl and post box which is amazing for the kids.

Going there was free, and it only cost £5 to go and visit santa but the money goes to there chosen charities. When you go into the actual grotto there is a fantastic display of lights and status of animals, before you see father christmas so its a lovely experience. Then at the end you get to choose your own present from santa so theres stuff to suit all ages. This year Eloise chose a toy…

Lets talk - Mum guilt

So as im writing this im sat in bed winding down ready to go to sleep, and all i can think about is what an awful job ive done today as a mum, ive not played with her enough, ive let her eat too much junk food, ive been on my phone too much, i havnt taken her out today, ive been too busy cleaning and not paying her attention, the list is endless.

And im wondering is this normal? Does every mum feel like this? Well i ended up posting in a mum group and i realised i am not alone! Which is why i wanted to write this blog post so if you reading this are in the same situation and you find yourself in bed every night feeling guilty then dont worry because we all are. 

One thing im going to try and do to make myself feel better is structure a loose timetable for the day, just a simple plan of what we are doing etc. So things like, walk into town in the morning, have lunch then do some arts and crafts in the afternoon, followed by tea, bath time and bedtime. Then at least i can go to bed thinki…

Breastfeeding - My story

So Eloise is coming up to two years old soon, and i will be having baby number two in a few months which has recently got me thinking about breastfeeding again, and i soon realized i never shared my experience with anyone.

When Eloise was born i really wanted to breastfeed but i was open minded that if i struggled i would just go on to formula and not put a lot of pressure on myself to breastfeed her! Eloise was in neonatal for the first 24 hours after her birth and so they ga

ve her formula through a feeding tube that went in her nose to start with while i rested, but about 5 hours or so after her birth they said i could go in and try her on my breast if i wanted to. Previous to that i sat in my hospital bed trying my very hardest to express what colostrum i had so i could give her all the good stuff to go along with her formula to try and help her get her strength up after a traumatic birth.

I was so incredibly nervous as i had no idea what to do, i was very lucky and she pretty muc…
