TOMMEE TIPPEE PERFECT PREP - MUMMY REVIEW 


Buying baby things get be so overwhelming I mean who knew there was so many different baby bottles to chose from ?? not to mention teats??? I thought you just bought one type of bottle and job done ... apparently not. I seemed to get overloaded with information/advice from all professionals once I got pregnant not to mention friends/family unwanted advice on how to prepare the bottles how you shouldn't prepare them in advance .. blah blah blah...

So when I came across this little beauty I was even more bamboozled, how can a machine prepare a baby bottle ready to drink within 2 minutes ???

I admit I was kinda skeptical of spending so much money on a machine that I might not even like ... But after watching a few Youtube videos, I thought I'd take the plunge and order one and I'll be honest out of all the baby products/gadgets I have bought (of which there are many) it is literally the BEST THING EVER!!!.

How does it work? 

This amazing little machine makes a baby bottle ready to drink (room temperature) in less than 2 minutes.


I will tell you literally how easy it is to use in a few steps...


Step 1: Select how many ounces you want (obviously you can leave it on the usual setting you would make for your baby, you don't need to adjust it each time)

Step 2: Press middle button , a red light will start flashing this is adding hot water it will automatically stop once it has added the correct amount of boiling water.

Step 3: Add your baby milk and shake with the handy bottle top that come with the pack (be careful it's hot)

Step 4: (make sure you take the lid off after shaking bottle) Press button again this time a green light will show cool water will be added the water will automatically stop once it has reached the correct ounces.

Step 5: Put bottle top (teat) on and feed your little angel.

This machine is the holy grail for formula fed babies in my opinion.

Seriously I can not recommend this baby bottle maker enough , lets be honest with ourselves who actually wants to be up at 3am waiting for a bottle to "cool"? NOT ME this machine actually makes a bottle room temperature meaning in two small minute your baby will be getting that little tummy full.

I read some other reviews before I bought this machine ... yes it makes a beeping noise once the bottle is made but literally at 3am who cares so long as it gets the job done???.

Sassy Bloom Baby Subscription Box - MY FIRST ONE

Today I will be reviewing my first ever Sassy Bloom baby box . I was searching around google for a cute little subscription box for my 14week little girl Ivah and came across this site Sassy Bloom

Being a first time mummy I found it overwhelming with all the baby toys and products you can actually buy for Ivah's age I literally thought there'd be a few daft toys and that was it. In the end I just thought I'll order one of these boxes and see what goodies Ivah likes and go from there. 

Sassy Bloom is a personalised subscription box each box is tailored for YOUR baby which is what persuaded me to order one :) 

I ordered the trial box which was £40.00 to be honest I wanted to see the value for money before I committed to more than one month. Subscriptions start around £30.00 a month. 

Here is my review:

Packaging:

I must admit the packaging was the cutest ever, it came in a lovely white gift box with a gray ribbon to seal, made me think how happy I would be if someone bought me one of these as a gift haha. 


                                                       Here's what the inside looked like: 



First item was this cute little munchkin bath time duck, it's a bath thermometer the little blue sign on ducks tummy glows if the water is too hot. I was so excited when I saw this since my little munchkin no longer fits in her baby bath so I was looking to buy something like this for the "big" bath. However I must admit it was quite confusing at times whether or not the hot sign was glowing I had to keep turning the hot water on to remind myself what it looked like when it was glowing. 

RRP: £2.99



Next item was this Oball with rattle. Ivah was very impressed with this toy although she didn't quite understand that it was never going to fit into her mouth (ha!). Obviously it makes a nice rattling sound to get her attention and it's so easy for her to hold since it has nice big holes it always attracts her attention when on the floor next to her.

RRP: £6.99


Third item was this Taggies elephant toy which I must say Ivah is obsessed with she loves to just sit holding the ears which make the scrunching sound, it also has a ring at the top so I can also attach to car seat/floor mat which is great. 

RRP: £9.99 



My personal favourite was the cutest ever little bath towel which had Ivah's name on it. I love anything personalised, Ivah literally has about five blankets with her name on them :) . 
Just loved this so much, personalised things are always expensive too. 

The towel was a great size not small like usual baby towels so at least I can still use it for another good few months. 


RRP: £15.00 (based on research could not find exact item)

Next item was baby ring o links, I haven't opened these for Ivah yet they seem a little advanced for her age so I'm going to wait another few weeks to try her out with these. Can hook them together to make a small chain, great for babies development. :) 

RRP: £3-£6 


Finally there was the Flip Flop Nuby Cow teething book, what a great little item this was. The cow literally has everything attached to help Ivah's development. Scrunchy legs to help her hearing , teething legs(which could be starting any time soon), you open up the middle and it's a little book which is great and of course the squeaking head. Really loved this one.

RRP: £6.99 


Summery: 

Overall myself and Ivah liked this box a lot, a great mix of items and I loved how age appropriate they all were. Obviously my favourite item was the towel and Ivah's was her little elephant. 

I would recommend trying this box and I would love to hear any of your opions/reviews on your items. 

Great value for money, one item was tailored to me although I did see other reviews where other children of same age received a very similar box. 

I also think this would be great when Ivah is older and she can understand it will be full of goodies for her, I'd like to see her little face light up when it came through post :) 


Pros: 
Good value for money 
Variety of Toys 
Personalised items
Age appropriate
Great for a gift

Cons:
Took a long time to arrive. 
Expensive (works out cheaper if take on a longer subscription)

Star Rating:

3.5/5.0 

Thank you for reading xox

Ovia Pregnancy App Tracker and Baby Calendar - Review August 2015

Hi Y'all 

As a first time mammy I have found what I consider one of the best pregnancy apps around. Simple, clear and easy to use. I am currently 34weeks pregnant and have used this app since I found out I was pregnant. 

A lot of Apps I tried out before this one I found were overly complicated and didn't do exactly what I was looking for. 

The App Ovia Pregnancy was such a great help to me as a first time mammy I wasn't sure what to expect or if my symptoms were normal. Not only does this App give advice you can also use it as a handy baby dairy you can list your symptoms , mood , sleep , nutrition , excise, weight, doctors appointments  or just general notes.
