Things to buy before bump arrives

I'm normally quite an organized person but I seem to be slacking with getting everything ready before bump arrives.

Although already having three children we are having to basically start from scratch as the only things I had kept were clothes but they are all pink.  

Have so far bought 
  •  vests
  •  blankets
  •  bottles
  •  hats
  •  scratch mitts
  •  sleeping bag
  •  changing mat 
  •  sleepsuits
 and a few other bits of clothing, muslin cloths and dribble bibs.  I think that's it but might of forgotten something.

On my list of still to get is 
  •  a coat ( either all in one or seperate)
  •  bibs
  •  Moses basket and stand
  •  sheets for moses basket
  •  bouncy chair or swing
  •  sterilizer (cold water )
I am still undecided on where I am going to buy the rest of his things from  especially the moses basket of which my budget is around £30 so if anyone has seen any nice ones suggestions would be great.

Also the sterilizer I used a cold water one with my eldest but a microwave one with the last two unfortunately the microwave we have now seems to be tiny and cant fit the sterilizer in so looking for a cold water one.  There doesn't really seem to be many around  so ideas on this too would be great.

Ive probably missed something out such a scatter brain at the moment.


  1. Ah congratulations on your pregnancy, even though you have had three children the one thing I can add is wipes. You end up needing so many I think it's good to save money and buy them in bulk as you go along- I use them for everything! x

    1. Thanks, yes will be stocking up on those although youngest is 3 now still go threw a lot of them plus use them to take my make up off. x

Speech Delay

So bump is now 4 and he is having problems with his speech I'm at the point now where I'm thinking did I do something wrong? will he ever talk? and I just don't know the answers which is frustrating me so I can only imagine how frustrating it is for him.

His speech started off fine the usual mama, dad, dog etc then it just seemed to stop and no more progress was made and I was too worried at first because my eldest daughter who's almost 20 now didn't really say all that much until she started nursery.

By the time it came to his 2 year review I was slightly concerned and spoke with the health visitor about it and was referred to speech therapy, we waited a while for that and they only saw him once where the speech therapist sat and played with him and gave me things to do at home with him.

We did attempt for him to start nursery last April but it didn't go too well and he didn't go anymore, he is quite a handful and they wouldn't let him stay the whole s…

potty training a 4 year old

So as I said in my previous post about speech delay bump is now 4 and still not potty trained, I started off potty training at 2 and its just been a struggle ever since, I feel like I've hit a brick wall and I just don't know what to do anymore.

he wont sit on the potty or the toilet, have tried everything to encourage him, books, dvds haven't tried a reward chart because he would have no interest in that.  Took his nappy away but he will just wet or pooh himself and not care.

He wears a nappy to nursery and he is due to start reception in September, what am I going to do send him to school in a nappy? I cant do that, I'm hoping and praying he's just going to decide to do it on his own but he is quite happy still wearing a nappy with no prompt to change him if he's done a pooh.

I'm at a loss and feel like a total failure, I've potty trained his sisters perfectly fine so why cant I do it?

please feel free to leave me a comment, email or tweet me i'd …
