Weaning just got easier….!

Whilst I was out shopping last week I was having a nosey down the baby isle in my local superstore to see if there was anything I needed for my little weaning adventure. Blake was 6 months old on Saturday and seen as he was 10lb 13oz when he was born, you won’t be surprised to hear that I had to start weaning him a little earlier than 6 months, as the current government health guidelines state. Either that or I was looking to invest in a diary cow : )

We made the decision to start weaning him early as he was constantly hungry and so I read a fair few weaning books in preparation and took the leap 5 weeks ago. Lets just say, Blake took to it like a duck to water, I couldn’t believe how easily he grasped the technique and adapted to the different textures. Since that day I have made all of his meals using the Beaba babycook (Godsend I might add) and he eats like a king.

So, whilst noseying down the baby isle, a bright orange package caught my eye, it was a brand named KOKO and the contents were food pouches. Let me just say that this is another genius invention that you simply need to have if like me, you cook all of your own delicious baby food and store it in the freezer. They’re simply fantastic, you get 10 empty pouches that you can fill, freeze, defrost, wash and re-use. Superb!

Just to make this brand even more special, you can also buy the food pouch spoons which attach to the nozel of the pouch making meal times whilst on the go simple and effective.

I invested in one of each of these and I will never look back, I’d recommend them til the cows come home! Plus they are so much more cost-effective than the food brands you can buy in pouches, saving you money along the way!

Sheer brilliance!

Visit http://www.koko-innovates.com the pouches are priced at £ 4.99 and the spoons complete with travel case from £4.49

Beaba Babycook: Wean until your heart’s content

beaba-BabycookI didn’t realise how fabulous this product really is until I invested in one recently. I’ve heard plenty about the Beaba Babycook and people have recommended it to me but I didn’t invest because I thought I would see how I got on with the equipment I already owned. Let me just say, this is a godsend! It is the easiest and by far the best investment I have made in the baby world and I would definitely recommend it to everyone who is about to embark on weaning!

It is certainly one of a kind, with its compact size and multiple functions this nifty piece of equipment cooks, blends, reheats and defrosts. The steam cook function cooks fish, meat, vegetables and fruits in 15 minutes or less whilst preserving their yummy vitamins and flavors. The blender allows you to control the desired consistency of your meals from purée to a more lumpy texture making it perfect for every stage of weaning.

It is simple to use, easy to clean, BPA free and prepares healthy scumptious meals for your little one in no time! You can also store the leftovers in the freezer for days when you need a quick fix.

It has made my life a whole lot easier and I wish I had invested from the offset! It retails at £90.00 but it is worth every single penny!

Available from most major retailers including Amazon, jojomamanbebe, Mamas and Papas and Mothercare.

A little bit of luxury

Picture 6
The OVO high chair by Micuna offers aesthetics, comfort and safety all in one seriously stylish bit of kit. This high chair is elegant, sleek and über stylish making a fabulous addition to your furniture collection. It features a round tray which is removable and washable, a footrest, and a leather strap for the safety of your little ones. Priced at approximately £260.00 this is certainly an investment but one that is worth every penny because not only does this product function as a high chair but it also grows with your little one, turning into a sleek desk chair for when he or she is a little older.

This is certainly a little bit of luxury but one that is worth every penny if you are design savvy and super chic!
