This was one of the first things we were bought as a present for our baby, when we got it out of the box we thought WOW it was quite simple to put together and looked very impressive!
When we set it up we then realised just how large the unit was and it sat there for about a month before Tillie made an appearance, everyone who saw it commented on how lovely and impressive it was.

When Tillie was 4 days old I put her in it for the first time, she was very unsettled as soon I as put her in the seat and pressed the button which mimic the sounds heard from inside the womb and she stopped instantly and was very happy, we used the swing on the slowest speed quite often in the first month, plus it comes with a teddy bear head rest which looks adorable!
As she got older we just used the natural sounds to get her to sleep without her actually being in the swing.
The motor was quite noisy and often quite jerky she became more and more unsettled in it and from 10 weeks old onwards she didn't like it at all, it made her cry. With it being so large it wasn't something you could easily move from room to room and as we were limited for space it wasn't very practical.

Advantages - looks very impressive and good quality speakers, the womb sounds were a great for settling Tillie when she was newborn
Disadavantages - you need a lot of space, I found the motor to be quite noisy and quite jerky which worried me slightly, it didn't really last us very long for the price paid.

Overall impression - If I had another baby I don't think I would even get it out again as it really is rather large and didn't use it that often, instead I would go for the basic rocker.

Score out of 5
I would rate this product as 2

"Your baby has Laryngomalacia"!!!????

I will explain a little about my labour, maybe a detailed explanation might go up in the future but lets put it like this, it was not nice and after suffering from an Irritable Uterus throughout my pregnancy followed by a 42 hour labour and a scary ending but I got the beautiful Tillie Bean so was worth every second! Basically the cord was wrapped around her neck twice and right round her body. She had the hiccups so much during pregnancy and I am wondering if this does have a connection to the problem which was about to be revealed!

I remember a few nights after Tillie was born hearing a strange noises when she was breathing, I had to stay in hospital for a few nights as I needed a blood transfusion, I buzzed the nurse to check about her breathing but was told 'it is just mucous on her lungs it is very common it won't last long'.
Even as a new mum I thought that this wasn't the case, but who was I to argue.
This 'mucous' was getting louder and louder and by …

Yorkshire Wildlife Park

We decided that we would go to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park http://www.yorkshirewildlifepark.net/ Today with it being so sunny outside.
We told Tillie we were going to see some animals, I love the way she repeats everything we say now, she managed to stay awake during the car journey and the whole way round the park.
She was more interested in the cat that was sunbathing near the entrance, I didn't think she was going to move as she kept saying "hewwo cat miaowww".
She liked the Meercats and the play area is near the entrance so she was quite happily swinging away looking at the horses.
It is a nice place to go, I wouldn't say that you could spend a whole day there as there isn't a lot to do but for under 5's it is ideal. They can run around, go and pat the sheep and goats, walk through the Lemur park and get up close to the Wallabies.
The food there isn't the best and is very expensive for 2xsausage chips and beans and two soft drinks it came to £15.85!!!…

I will never wear big pants ever again!

So let me give you the scenario - I read that a lot of women swear by tummy control pants and wondered what all of the fuss was about so I ordered a pair from a well-known high street online shop. I ordered size 8 to be completely honest I really didn't need them I have always been petite but I got it into my head that i needed some! I wanted to wear a dress to my partners football presentation evening (sounds glam doesn't it but it was just in the pub which we run, people sometimes expect you to make an effort and with being a village WAG it would be rude not to!)

I haven't got the greatest self-confidence and people are always lovely to me and tell me I look nice but I never believe them and I always buy clothes but never think I can wear them so chicken out!

I thought maybe these miracle pants would boost my confidence, the only time I have ever had boobs was when I was pregnant and breastfeeding, without the good old gel bras I would be lost! So I didn't want any…
