Kentish Hop & Lavender Sleep Sent Review

A unique, soothing, relaxing blend of essential oils (including hops and lavender). Put a couple of drops of this calming scent on a handkerchief by your pillow to inhale as you drift off to sleep.

I have been having trouble sleeping for a little while and even totally knackered was taking me ages to drift off.  I had read on line that Lavender is helpful for this and had been looking for a Lavender  pillow/cushion.  Whilst searching I came across the Hop Shop at Castle Farm website  http://www.hopshop.co.uk/index.php
They sell lots of lovely things such as oils, toiletries, gifts, food, dried flowers and sleep aids, I contacted them to find out about their pillows and they kindly offered to send me a bottle of their Sleepy Scent to try.  
I used it the same day I received it putting a few drops on the cushion I have next to my pillow at night, now I am not in general a fan of the smell of Lavender but I have to say I was surprised at how relaxed it made me feel and I did fall off to sleep quicker than usual.  I have used it every night since and would definitely recommend it, you can purchase it here http://www.hopshop.co.uk/detail.php?ProdID=364 and it costs £7.25 for a 10ml bottle which will last for a long time as you only need a couple of drops and you will be peacefully Zzzzzzzzzzzzz

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?
