This video sums this up so well! Mothers judge each other all the time on the parenting choices they make!
WHY! As long as that child/children are happy and healthy and at no harm then let them all be!
The breastfed/bottle fed debate is boring, we all know breast is best but let people have the freedom to choose! Yes washable nappies are better for the environment but we all dont have the time for that etc, etc.
We should all be free to bring our children up as we want and nature them the best we can.
Teething has hit our household! And don’t we know it!
We have been kind of lucky so far. From 4 months old Bear has had a pointy tooth sat right on his gum but until now at 8 months old it hasnt caused an issue…… I saw every hour on the clock last night, all the lotions and potions didnt help and so I resorted to late night/early morning TV which to be honest was just as bad as an unsettled baby!
With Dude we used an Amber necklace which worked great for him, no problems at all with his teeth and we didnt even notice them come through. This time we opted for an amber anklet. Theres alsorts of debates on the internet about whether these are actually any use. However Amber has been used for hundreds of years as a natural pain reliever so theres got to be some effect from them. Well thats what i’m hoping, and I hope it kicks in soon!!
As I type this, he has woken up crying in pain…teething is the ultimate devil!
So today I visited Asda as their baby event started yesterday. I didn’t pick up any nappies as I use aldi nappies and their baby event starts next Thursday (29th jan).
Here is what I got:
I got 2 packs of pampers 12 pack box wipes. They were £7.97 each.
2 Asda sensitive washing gels for £2 each
Baby snack crisps were 3 for £4.50. They have 4 packets in each pack.
Metanium bum cream was £2
Babygrows pack of 4 for £7
Plum punches were 30p each so I got 8 in 2 different varieties.
The fruit pots were 4 for £1. So picked up cow and gate and Heinz.
School bars were 99p.
Baby cereal was 3 for £4.50. (Worked out I got one free as the are £2.50 each!)
And finally the baby toy at the front was £2! It plays music and has a small book on the front aswell. They also had a shape sorter for £2 but we have them already.
I’ve seen better deals at previous Asda baby events. There were no cups or beakers or baby cutlery. And hardly any baby equipment this time. I still think I did quite well! I’m well stocked for wipes for a while!
Next week is the aldi baby event so I will do another haul on what I get then!
