Hauck Roma Pushchair Review – Kiddies Kingdom

Excitingly, we were contacted by Kiddies Kingdom to ask if we would like to review a pushchair! How could we possibly say no?!

 

Obviously we already have a pram/pushchair that we bought just before Fraser was born, which we love but it is very bulky and heavy. The Hauck Roma that we have been asked to review is more of a stroller pushchair.

baby, travel

The pushchair comes boxed complete apart from the 2 front wheels and hood that need attaching. Both are incredibly simple to do. The front wheel spools have protectors on which easily pop off and the wheels just push on and then click when secure.

My first impressions when the Roma was taken out of the box was an immediate love for the kiwi and midnight colours. A really lovely combination.

The frame is lightweight compared to the pram/pushchair that I already have. Even with the weight difference it is very sturdy. It is also really easy to push. The front wheels have the option of being set to just forward or swivel.

This buggy folds down to a nice compact size and even has a handle to make it easy to carry! It’s so handy and I’m sure would fit in the boot of most cars! When folded there is a clip that holds it together in this position.

Fraser was very intrigued when I sat him in his new wheels for the first time! He was looking around!

stroller, lightweight

The 5 point harness is fab and the clip to undo it is really easy to open (also comparing to my pushchair) but not too easy. Plus padding on the straps so they don’t rub against little ones neck. All straps are very easy to adjust as well.

Another handy feature of this pushchair is a nice sized, handy pocket on the back of the hood, great for chucking a spare dummy in or your purse for a walk to the shops.

brakes

The brakes on this buggy are so simple to use. You simply press down on the tab until it clicks against the wheels and this can be done from either side. Then reverse the process to release the brake.

folding down, compact

This tab that is central between the wheels at the back is a part of the folding down and opening process. So when you want to fold down the buggy you will lift this tab upwards, then there is a tab sticking out on the right hand side of the frame that you have to push down on and the whole thing will fold down. Then as before reverse the process when opening up the buggy and it will click into place when fully opened.

handles

One of the things that did concern me was the handle height. Hubby is 6ft 4 and I am 5ft 11. I had visions of us being hunched over pushing this buggy but that is not the case at all. The handles are a perfect height. They are not adjustable but just perfect for us. They are foam covered so super comfortable to grip too.

recline

The toggle underneath the seat is how you adjust the seating position. Hold in the button in the toggle and pull down on the strap and push the toggle upwards for an upright seating position. Then you would need to press the button in and pull the toggle downwards to lay the seat flat. This is suitable from birth as it does lay completely flat. As you can also see from the picture that the shopping basket underneath is a fabulous size.

review, kiddies kingdom

Overall we really love this stroller. It is so handy, convenient, lightweight and looks great! The ONLY downside to it is that it doesn’t come with a rain cover which is a little annoying but they are cheap enough to buy.

 

Looking for some new wheels for your little one? There are great pushchairs for sale at Kiddies Kingdom!

 

We were sent this pushchair to review. All thoughts and opinion are honest and my own.

Christmas Gift Guide for Babies Under 1

My christmas gift guide is here for Babies under one year. Christmas is fast approaching so I thought I’d get super organised and compile a small list of gift ideas. It can be really tricky buying for babies but I have based this list on us buying for Fraser for his first Christmas.

 

Toys:

Toys I suppose are the obvious choice really but they have to be age appropriate so it does take some investigating. Now Fraser can sit up with support and now likes his Tummy Time so this Hungry Caterpillar Activity Toy is perfect to entertain him when he’s on his front or sitting/laying.

Suitable from birth, this toy from Born Gifted is fabulous. I am a HUGE fan of the Very Hungry Caterpillar anyway but it has so many ways to keep baby amused. I has velcro straps too so can be attached to pram/pushchair or cot. The Caterpillars feet and tentacles are made from material that makes a crinkle/crispy sound when touched or scrunched. Fraser particularly likes this bit. There are small hoops to grab underneath, a large hoop with beads that move about too. The material is bright in each section and has different textures.

 

It is so well made and beautifully embroidered. If you press the embroidered leaf it plays Twinkle Twinkle Little Star!

The clear globe in the middle spins around making a rattle sound with the tiny beads inside. Fraser loves his activity  caterpillar so it get a huge thumbs up from us!

Price £19.99

 

Books:

It is never too early to get your children into books! My older two kids adore books and I am hoping Fraser will too!

This book is awesome. It is hardback, although you can get paperback too. You can also have your childs face put on the front of the book as well as their name. I really love this idea! We opted for just the personalised text. It is so adorable. There are a number of titles you can have personalised on the website and lots of other items other than books too.

I love this message we could have printed inside the front cover. It is a lovely touch that can make this gift just that little bit more special.

book, personalised, christmas

The illustrations in this book are beautiful. Really cute characters and animals. I love everything about them from the backgrounds to the artwork. This beautifully made book from It’s Your Story is a perfect gift for baby. We definitely recommend this.

Price: From £15

 

Personalised Soft Toy/Teddy:

Who doesn’t love a teddy!?? This isn’t one I’d give Fraser to play with though, it’d be more of a keepsake I think but it is so cute! TIGGER!!!

tigger, disney, baby

 

tigger, christmas, baby

This isn’t just any old teddy though… Tigger has a special personalised scalloped tag hanging on his satin ribbon bow! Tigger comes carefully wrapped in tissue paper and presented in a lovely tulle drawstring bag. The teddy from Find Me A Gift, is approx 21cm in height and incredibly soft to touch. The personalisation on the disc is limited to 50 characters but you can have whatever message you like.

Price: £23.99

 

Money Boxes:

Baby may already have one but if not, I think a money box is lovely idea for a gift. This one from Find Me A Gift is really nice. It is glass on one side so you can actually see into your money box and see how many pennies you’ve got.

 

The My First Money Box has an animal picture on the back that you can also see through the glass front. Printed on the front glass panel is the words My First Money Box. It is wooden and painted in white. You can get to your money through the back, it has got four clips like a photo frame that you slide round and take the back panel off. Its really well made too and do other versions for grown ups!

Price: £19.99 but currently on sale at £12.99!

 

I really hope this has helped in giving you some ideas for gifts for Baby’s first Christmas. I cannot wait to spend our first Christmas as a family of FIVE!

Mum Vs Teething Baby! 5 Things You Need!

 

teething

Teething! Brace yourselves!!

Fraser is 19 weeks old now and most definitely teething! Drowning in dribble! Lots of grizzles. Rosy cheeks. A not so smiley Bubba! Well I have compiled a small list of things I recommend you have to hand when you have a teething Baby!!

 

1.  Toys to chew on!!

sophie la girafe

We have a Sophie the Giraffe teether toy which Fraser has taken a real shine to. He smiles when he sees her face! It is very cute! He has no qualms about shoving her head in his dribble filled face and chowing down! Its a great toy as it is easily washable and very durable. These are so popular and I can see why. We have a few other teething toys too, including fabric toys with chewable plastic sections for teething. Sophie is by far Frasers favourite though. Have PLENTY of teething toys available for baby. They can actually soothe the gums and gently help the teeth to break through when ready.

2. Plenty of Bibs/ Muslin Cloths

Now when I was pregnant with Fraser I bought a packet of 3 Muslin cloths. Then I bought some more, then when he was born I got another pack! Muslin overload? Too much? God no! I am so glad I bought as many as I did especially as Fraser has colic and reflux! They have been an absolute saviour! I never used these with my older children but I could make do with just bibs for them as they were never sick! Come to think of it I don’t remember them dribbling as much as Fraser does either. Muslin cloths are a MUST have!! I have 2 in my changing bag at all times. Fraser does wear a bib some of the time but I do prefer Muslins. Dribble bibs are definitely good to have too. In fact I don’t think you could have too many of those either.

 

3. Spare Clothes

These you’d probably have with you anyway incase of a leaky nappy or poo explosion! Don’t you just love those?! Eww! Maybe pop in an extra set just incase. I have found Fraser has been soaking through bibs, then t-shirt/ sleep suit  and vest. Honestly I cannot emphasise enough how much dribble comes out of my child! Definitely pack extra, it is better to have too much than not enough!

4. Teething Gel

Teething gel is another definite MUST have item! There are a few out there but we have found that Dentinox the most effective for Fraser. We actually used this with our other two children too. It can be reapplied if necessary every 20 minutes. Others which must be a bit stronger can only be applied every 3 hours. It must be so painful for them when those teeth are coming through. This gel definitely relieves a bit of the pain for our Bubba. I take it with us wherever we go. There are powders and granules too for teething, I’ve never used them personally as discovered the gel first and that works well for us.

5. Nappy Rash Cream

Now I know this sounds like an odd one but Sudocrem is great if they get sore from dribble. Fraser manages to get dribble right underneath his chin. Right in a fold of chub. It can get really red and sore and I just put a bit of sudocrem on and it is right as rain! Sudocrem is magic cream to me! It can be used for so many different things and works wonders.  Again this is probably something you’d have with you most of the time anyway so it’s just an added bonus that it can help with soreness too.

 

What are your must-haves for a teething baby?

Baby is 4 Months Old

 

 

Fraser is now 4 months old! WOW!!

 

The colic/reflux and tongue/lip tie has got no further really. We had a referral from our Health Visitor for a lip/tongue tie assessment. That wasn’t hugely successful as we were told he does have tongue tie but it isn’t severe enough to do anything about plus he is over the 16 week threshold so if it needed doing he would have to be put under anaesthetic to do so. The nurse we saw at this appointment also thinks he has tummy issues and chased up our Paediatric Appointment. We have a date… 22nd September. So a fair wait but I just hope it is productive when it does come around. We already feel like we have been thrown from pillar to post. Fingers crossed!

 

 

Fraser is now drinking 8oz bottles every 4 hours. He has 4 in  day and sleeps 10-12 hours through the night!! How marvellous is that?! We are so very blessed to have had 3 children who sleep well.

 

Last Friday at 17 weeks exactly he weighed 17b 12oz. So he has gained which is good as he had started to lose weight. He is on 95th percentile and is doing really well weight wise. He is now mostly in 6-9 month clothing too! The 3-6  months wardrobe is getting a bit snug.

 

 

There are a few toys that he has taken a shine to. A rattle giraffe that he can get his chubby little hand around and shake the life out of.  A playmat/gym that has entertained all 3 of our children now. It is 15 years old now and still in fab condition! I didn’t realise we still had it until Ed was up in the loft not long after Bubs was born. He loves having a sleep on there as well as batting all the hanging toys around!

 

 

Frasers personality is really starting to shine through. He’s such a happy smiley bubba. He honestly brings such joy! We have had  one successful roll over from back to belly and he keeps trying bless him but gets frustrated when the arm underneath him gets in the way. The voice has been found too! Lots and lots of screeching and shouting! It is most amusing!

 

The teething has started too so we should take out shares in Bonjela and Dentinox gel as well as Muslin cloths and bibs!! Fraser is a dribble monster! His hands are always in his mouth! Nom nom!

 

So Fraser is doing really well, he is a happy chappy and brings lots of love and laughter to our lives!! I’m thinking ahead already to christmas and thinking that he may be crawling by then and the christmas tree may sound more time on the deck than upright and it will be a game of pull the baubles off the tree! Haha! I cannot wait! Baby’s first christmas! So exciting!!

 

Check back next month for our 5 Month update!!

Why is it so difficult?

So difficult to get someone to listen? For 14 weeks I have been backwards and forward to the doctors I can’t even tell you how many times! Fraser is 16 weeks old today!

At 2 weeks old we went initially… must be reflux, try Gaviscon. Worked for 3 days then the copious amounts of vomit appeared again. Went back… could be an intolerance…. try this Cows Milk Free formula…. didn’t make a difference. Go back again…. try gaviscon… worked for 3 days and caused major constipation. In all this time too along side the vomiting after almost every feed, Fraser was screaming for hours on end most afternoons/ evenings. So distressing for everyone. Nothing I do comforts him.

Go back again to an out of hours appointment at the hospital. Doctor wasn’t listening, he was referring to Fraser as a SHE and asked me about 4 times if Gaviscon was working. If Gaviscon was working I wouldn’t be sat there! Idiot! He gave me a prescription for Ranitidine, didn’t explain properly how to use it and told me the hospital pharmacy would explain when they dispense it. Took it to the hospital pharmacy and they told me they couldn’t dispense it as it was a green prescription and not a white one. By this point I was more than a little bit cross and was pulling my hair out.

 

Spoke to a GP at my surgery again on the phone a few days after that who was fairly helpful, wrote a new prescription for Ranitidine and explained how to use it. So I picked up the prescription took it to my chemist and they dispensed it but told me that they didn’t have any 1ml syringes which I would need to administer the meds to Fraser! He told me I will have to go round other chemists to see if they had any and he didn’t know when they were getting anymore in stock! Luckily my Mum got one from her local pharmacy! Bloody useless!

 

Ranitidine wasn’t making an ounce of difference. A couple of conversations with friends on Facebook and they mentioned Tongue Tie…. hmmmm my other 2 didn’t have this, I didn’t know what to look for…surely a professional would have picked this up!? I took a picture of under his top lip and it was impossible to get an under the tongue one so videoed 10 seconds in his mouth when he was crying. One of my friends said she had diagnosed plenty of lip and tongue tie in her career and was very sure Fraser had both! A few others who saw commented saying that their babies had this and Frasers looked very similar.

So we booked in to see another GP at my surgery. I explained everything AGAIN from the beginning, about all the meds not working, about the possibility of Lip and Tongue Tie and she looked under his tongue and said oh it can’t be that, he has good tongue movement. Then went to take her gloves off, I said “can you look at his lip too please” She looked and just said hmmm I don’t know. I just burst into tears at this point. So bloody frustrated. I said about feeling like no-one is taking me seriously and I feel like I keep being fobbed off with meds, different milks, Ive tried comfort milk too and that made no difference. I think she was a bit taken aback by my tears. She felt his tummy. She said all seems ok but will refer us to the paediatricians as something can’t be right with all the vomiting and screaming. So she has referred for “Tummy Issues” … nothing to do with lip or tongue tie!!

 

Now we have also noticed that Fraser is losing weight. This is worrying. So I took him to see the Health Visitor as I had done the last couple of weigh ins at home. On the 19th June he was last weighed “properly” and he weighed 16lb 6oz. and then yesterday on 17th August he weighed 17b 1oz. I had weighed him in at 18lb in between that time but how accurate my scales are I don’t know. But regardless of my recordings, 11oz gain in 2 months is not right. Babies should be gaining 1-2 lbs a month.Fraser hasn’t gained 1lb in 2 months. Health visitor advised to come back next week to weigh in again on her scales and we will see from there. She also checked his tongue and lip and is sending us for an assessment for that. FINALLY!! Thank you!! How bloody hard was that?

 

So I will keep you posted on any updates but I have such a headache from it all, I am so stressed out. Things can only get better right?

The Parenting Struggle is Real!

Today…. it really is! Today I cannot win at parenting. I feel like its all out of my control. That makes me feel shit.

I really am not one for making out my life is perfect. It is far from being doused in the smell of roses!! I generally am a happy person, very laid back and quite care free. But today I do care, today I am not feeling laid back…. today feels like a huge pus filled zit on the arse of parenting!

 

My poor baby boy is very unsettled indeed with his colic and reflux issues and no amount of Mummy love or cuddles is settling or comforting him. All I want to do is help him and take his pain away but today is not letting that happen. I long for the day that he grows out of this. It is not an inconvenience at all…. I just want him to not suffer. I just want to not witness him bright red in the face screaming the house down and not being able to help him. I hate it! I hate Colic and Reflux!

 

My older 2 kids seem to have found a whole load of hate for each other. They have always been so close! It breaks my heart. It is such petty crap they argue over too. They literally cannot be in the same room as each other for longer than 2 minutes before all hell breaks loose! I hate it!! What has happened to their relationship?! I cannot win at that either. I do not take sides, I tell them both they are as bad as each other which they are and I get accused of taking sides. I get accused of like the other more than them. I am wrong because I’m not backing either of them. If they had valid arguments then I would but “Mum…. he/she breathed in my direction” is not valid. It’s ridiculous. I am sick of listening to it and I just want them to get along. Having to tell 2 of my children that if they can’t stand each other then don’t communicate or go near each other is AWFUL. Its awful because I have seen these two be so close, have so much fun, laugh together. Where did it all go so wrong? It’s daily! I hate it!!

 

So today is pants quite frankly! I feel like a rubbish mother because I can’t control these crappy things that are going on! How do I make things better? How do I get them to like each other again?

 

Bring on tomorrow!! Tomorrow is a new day!

The First 3 Months

My word…. it goes so quickly doesn’t it!!? These first 3 months have flown by!

Fraser hasn’t had the easiest of starts but has still been an absolute dream. He was sleeping 4-5 hours a night from a week old. I, as most parents really love my sleep so have cherished this enormously! We have really been blessed in that respect as our older two children were also very good with their sleep!

 

Now this time around I’ve come across and am struggling with a couple of things I’ve not experienced before!! Reflux and Colic!! Wow! Like babies don’t create enough extra washing without throwing up over 5 different outfits a day! Haha!

It started when Fraser was about 2 weeks old. The vomit!! The sheer amount of baby vomit! HE was pretty much throwing up after every feed! Time to see a doc! The doctor advised us that from the symptoms we had described, Fraser has reflux! Well this was a new one to us! He prescribed Infant Gaviscon which was to be put into every feed. We saw the effects almost immediately, which was great. This lasted 3 whole days then the vomit returned! Back to the docs we went. This time we were advised that it could be an intolerance to the formula so we were prescribed a cows milk free formula. Wow that stuff was gross! It had the consistency and smell of a very thick cheese sauce! *gag* ….. it made absolutely no difference whatsoever and we tried it for the 2 weeks that we were told to so we switched back to his original formula. After a little while the vomiting subsided by itself. We were so relieved. Well…. for a while, until the colic kicked in! Another new thing for us!

 

 

At about 4 weeks old, one particular evening Fraser was VERY upset. He had been fed and changed, I had tried to burp him, nothing. I tried my hardest to comfort him, trying all sorts of positions holding him, walking around with him, over my legs, on my shoulder, in the pram… nope nothing worked, he was screaming the place down like I had never heard before. That kind of scream where their little faces go bright red and you are willing them to take a breath. It was awful and I felt bloody useless. I called 111 for advice because I had tried everything and I just did not know what else to do. They asked me a series of questions and by this point Fraser had been screaming or almost 2 hours solid. They said they were sending an ambulance, because he was so little they didn’t want to take any risks. PANIC MODE!!! I am crap at situations like this and stated crying on the phone, that then made my daughter cry, she’s 14 and was a real rock to me that night. Hubby was at work. The paramedics turned up and checked him over and within 5 minutes of them being there he stopped crying! How typical is that!?? They still wanted him to go to hospital to get checked over. All his stats seemed ok so that was something. Mum in Law came over to sit with the older two and I went with Fraser in the ambulance. Got to children A&E and the nurses done all the checks again, asked me a few questions, weighed him…. they couldn’t find a thing wrong with him! I felt like such an idiot!! They kept reassuring me that I had done the right thing. Just glad he was ok!

We have had so much fun and laughter with this little boy! He’s generally a very happy chappy! His 1st smile made me melt and his 1st proper laugh (a real belly chuckle!) actually made me cry! He’s so funny!

 

We still have the colic and reflux issues but we are battling through, the docs don’t appear to be listening but I’ve made the choice to change his milk to a comfort milk. There does seem to be less vomit but it hasn’t cleared completely. Its good to know that colic and reflux are both things he will eventually grow out of.

 

 

Fraser is also suffering from a touch of Plagiocephaly – Flat Head Syndrome. Another new thing to us!! We are following advise to correct it and it is slowly improving. Resting his head to the opposite side that is affected, holding him more, lots of tummy time, he absolutely loves sitting up and seeing whats going on around him at the moment so we’ve bought him a Fisher Price sit-me-up which he likes to sit in but not for too long. Hopefully it will continue to improve and no further action will be needed. In his cot we also use a BabyMoov Cosy Dream, its like a padded cushion/mat that he sleeps on thats moulded around the head and that helps prevent flat head syndrome too.

 

This boy loves his milk! He is on 8oz bottles 4 times a day… generally 9am – 1pm – 5pm – then 9pm then bath and bed! He sleeps right through now… 10 hours a night!! Very very blessed! I think he will be great by the time is comes to weaning. I’m not sure he will last until the full 6 months and I do really want to hold it off for as long as I possibly can. His older brother was a milk and food lover and used to scream when either had finished as he was enjoying it so much! LOL! I can see Fraser being the same! He already is with his milk!

Unlike his older siblings he really loves his baths! He loves to kick about in the water and loves being washed with lots of bubbles! Baby friendly bubbles of course! The older two used to scream the place down at bath time so this is a refreshing change!

 

So Fraser was 3 months old on the 28th July. He is smiling, laughing, holding toys for a short amount of time, he has discovered his hands, he has almost fully rolled from his back onto his front just one arm got stuck underneath him, he hasn’t managed the other way though just yet. He is vocal and starting to “shout”  especially when excited! He loves to watch the colours on the TV, he adores music!!

Despite all the throwing up he is gaining weight well. As of today he weighs 18lbs exactly! He is going to be a bruiser!!

 

Fraser is going to be such a character I can tell! His 1st 3 months have been great even if a little bit stressful. I can’t wait to see what the next 3 bring!!

MyHummy – The Humming Bear Review

MyHummy is a God Send!! I’m sure that anyone who has one would agree!! A cute and cuddly teddy that actually sends your baby to sleep? Genius!

Now… as a rule Fraser is a pretty good sleeper but we are only human and have the odd wobbly bedtime, especially after injections and things like that. He has just started teething too so I’m sure there will be a few more wobbles coming up!

The MyHummy Snoozy is incredibly soft to the touch and super cuddly! Very very cute indeed! They come in 5 different colours. Our one is Slate Grey. The other choices are white, mint green, blue and pink.

Apparently babies love playing with ball-shaped objects and it would be perfectly safe for little ones to have a chomp on the paws. This can be washed at 40 degrees (obviously taking out the battery compartment first). The battery compartment is cleverly hidden behind an almost invisible zip at the top of Snoozys head. It takes 3 x AAA batteries.

This cute little bear can be attached to cot, car seat, pram etc and the sole purpose is to help baby to sleep by playing white noise. There are 5 different noises to choose from, which are: A hairdryer, vacuum cleaner, ocean waves, rainfall and amniotic fluid with heartbeat.

Ours lives in Frasers cot. We haven’t taken it out and about in pram or carseat as yet. Fraser loves him for bedtime.

There is a variable volume setting, plus its easy to switch off, you just press and hold for like 2 seconds and its off. It comes with an easy to follow instruction page. Such a great idea, such cute looking teddies, Fraser has no issues settling, even on a wobbly bedtime with his MyHummy Snoozy by his side! Wish they had these around when my older two were babies!

 

We love the MyHummy Snoozy! Thumbs up here!!

Bumbo Changing Pad Review

Bumbo got in touch with us to see if we wanted to do a review of their Changing Pad, obviously we were happy to oblige! These looked GREAT!

The Pad is comfortable and soft and it is contoured. The sides are raised too which helps when baby gets to that “I’m gonna roll over” stage! Another plus to help this stage is the strap to hold them in place which I think is a great idea! The strap is fully adjustable too!

The Changing Pad is also easy to clean which is always a bonus when it comes to Nappy changing time! Ha! The Joys of Boys…. I’ve been peed on many a time now! Compared to our normal plastic changing mat, when I laid Fraser down onto it, it wasn’t freezing cold. So he didn’t get grumpy!

He does love to wriggle about, does Fraser but I feel a lot more settled knowing he cannot go anywhere when on this pad! The higher sides and safety harness completely put my mind at ease. He isn’t quite at the rolling over stage just yet but we aren’t far off I’m sure!

 

This little boy hasn’t been a huge fan of Bum Change Time … (I’m not either particularly), but since we have been using the Bumbo Changing Pad it has been a tear free affair which is always a good thing!

 

 

I would say our thoughts on this product are a HUGE thumbs up!! Definitely recommended by us!
