The great thing about holidaying with a baby is that you can take them basically anywhere and they couldn’t care less. As long as you’re meeting their needs you can be in Blackpool or Barcelona and they won’t take any notice. Of course you do need some extra gear to help baby cope with the heat but we’ve always had great experiences. I woudn’t say I’m an expert but Luisa has been on over 20 flights in two years so I think I know a thing or two.     These days we definetly have a toddler on our hands –…

As most of you probably know we’re not long back from New York. We had a fantastic time and took lots of photos and video so there will be much more info our trip soon. Today I’m sharing something a bit different that we packed for our trip – suncream. That might sound a bit bonkers but I did my research and knew that the snowy east coast would require some sun protection. I was lucky to be working with Boots to trial and review their Soltan Once range. They kindly sent us a bit of a winter sun survival kit.…

Morning all! So it’s Tuesday 27th December, what are you all up to? I imagine you’re looking around at the utter carnage left by Christmas and wondering if turkey curry or pie would be preferable for tonights dinner. What am I doing, you ask? Well, I’m most likely weeping because whilst it may be 11am in the UK it’s 5am in New York and I’ve probably been awake for several hours. I doubt your able to muster much sympathy for me because let’s face it, I’m on the trip of a lifetime but I do like a good moan nonetheless.…

We were recently given a every exciting opportunity to review the Baby Jogger City Tour stroller. If you’re a bit of a pram nut like me you’ll know the super compact buggy market is about to explode. These kinds of stroller are the latest must-have, especially for space conscious parents. So many of us live in apartments, drive cars with small boots and love to travel so space is always at a premium. The Baby Jogger City Tour takes these challenges facing modern parents and laughs in their face. The stroller is super compact, extremely quick to fold, has its own storage bag…

  This month Luisa reached a bit of a milestone, our journey back from Edinburgh was her 20th flight. I think that’s pretty impressive for someone who’s only 18 months old! I’ve written about our travels a few times – trips to London, Dublin, Crete and Wicklow. I’ve also shared my holiday essentials, tips for camping with baby and reviewed a super compact pram. Over the next few weeks I’m going to write a bit more about our tips for travelling with a baby and share what were currently learning about travelling with a toddler – which is much more difficult! As…

If I won the lottery I wouldn’t hang about, I’d be on the first plane out of here to enjoy myself and figure out what to do with the rest of my jackpot. Of course I wouldn’t be silly and blow all my winnings. I’d come up with a long term plan and try to lead a relatively normal life.     I often daydream about this kind of thing so I pretty much have it all arranged – at least in my head anyway. After my celebratory holiday I’d look into buying a house for Matt, Luisa & myself. We’d…
