{REVIEW} The Aqua Scale baby bath.

IMG_0476

This is one nifty product my friends. I love technology so when I heard about the Aquascale, I became rather giddy with excitement. The Aquascale is a new age baby bath, the best of the best let me tell you. The Aquascale is a baby bath with a built-in thermometer AND scale. You can weigh your baby WHILE he/she has a bath. How cool?

One of the things that distressed me the most about taking Jordan to the clinic was undressing him down to his bare bum in the cold to make sure he was gaining the weight he was supposed to gain. He hated it and screamed blue murder as a result. It really wasn’t fun for anyone involved. To be able to bath Jordan in warm soapy water suits me way better, and he loves it too.

LOVE. And my talent for ridiculous nicknames.

I just have to pop in and put some of my thoughts down as I’m about to explode with emotion. I have NEVER loved anything more than I love being a mom. I honestly believe that God put me on this earth to be a mom. To be JORDAN’S mom. There are HARD times yes, but I have never been so overwhelmed with love for another human being. The love i feel for my child is the type of love i don’t think could ever be explained to someone who hasn’t experienced what its like to become a parent, to BE a parent. When I look at Jordan’s perfect face, his big blue eyes, his little button nose, his gorgeous little pouty lips, I struggle to believe that I have been blessed with such a perfect little boy. One of my favorite things is when he first wakes up in the morning or after his day time naps. The one side of his face is a little red from the warmth of his bed and he has a sleepy smile that he melts me into the ground with. He has this sleepy baby smell, I call him ‘freshly baked’ when he’s just woken up because he’s all warm and he smells just delicious. HOW can this little being be so perfect?

The NUK freestyle soother. A review & GIVEAWAY.

IMG_0900

I don’t have any gripes with dummies / soothers / pacifiers / dum dums – there are many names for the little comforters that are everyday companions in most young household, says NUK, and it’s true. I have also heard the word ‘binkie’ used before. Every child has a comfort item and Jordan is a particularly ‘sucky’ baby so I knew a dummy was right for him in the comfort department. I did however want to make the right choice in what I gave to him as there is a lot of controversy around the matter, I have had a few run ins with the fun police over the matter. Moms, I’m sure you are ALL quite familiar with the fun police, no?

A lovely twitter friend of mine recently became a Mompreneur – Mom + Entrepreneur. I love that term. Andrea is SO creative.
