You may have read our previous post when we reviewed an amber teething necklace. Our son was teething at the time so it was a great opportunity to test this natural teething remedy. We were really impressed with the results and have now decided to sell these necklaces on our website. We hope you like them. They are made from 100% genuine, Baltic amber.
Amber is a resin produced by extinct coniferous trees which fossilized to become Amber. It is very light and warm to the touch. Wearing amber against the skin releases the oils onto the body. The analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties of these oils help babies stay calm and more relaxed during teething. Amber teething necklaces are very common place in european countries and can be routinely found in pharmacies. Green Mums predicts that we will be seeing a lot more of these in the coming years, as people turn to more natural teething remedies. Please note: The necklaces are designed to be worn by babies and should not be chewed. Price £12.99, available in a variety of colours
The Easyfit from Tots Bots has always been one of our favourite nappies and has been available in some fantastic prints.
It goes on just like a disposable and has a lovely soft PUL outer meaning you have just one piece to go on (no need for an outer wrap) This great nappy is now available in some gorgeous bright rainbow colours – go on, be bold and bright and get every colour of the rainbow (well, almost!) This is a birth to potty nappy so should fit your child for the whole of his/her nappy wearing days! All you need is a flushable or fleece liner inside to catch the solids at that’s it!

Phew… what a scorcher of a week we have had so far. We’ve been making the most of it here and went for a trip to the beach today. It seems to take me almost an hour to pack up our stuff for the beach these days, maybe it comes from having two
Organic Sun Lotion, Suitable from 6 months
children to think about now – maybe I just spend to much time flapping!
Anyway, the most important item of course is sunscreen and we’ve recently been using an organic children’s lotion with an SPF of 25. It works really well and of course we know that it contains no nasty ingredients. Green People’s children’s sunscreen is suitable from 6 months of age. (It is recommended that children under 6 months are not exposed to the sun). This natural sunscreen is made without Parabens, Lanolin, phthalates, artificial perfumes, petrochemicals and colourants giving you the purest children’s sun lotion that nature can offer.

Other tips to keep your child safe in the sun:
- Always apply sunscreen 30 minutes before exposure to the sun
- Keep them covered up in lightweight clothing
- Encourage them to wear a wide-brimmed hat
- Don’t forget to reapply suncream regularly, especially after swimming
- It may be worth taking a parasol to the beach in order to provide some shade – especially important for really young babies.
Having breastfed two children I thought I knew all there was to know about the subject. How wrong I was! This book covers everything from how our breasts make milk through to weaning baby. There are also chapters on stress and depression, sex and breastfeeding, and feeding whilst out and about with your baby. All great information for a new mum and I haven’t really seen these covered in any great depth in other breastfeeding books.
The benefits of breastfeeding are talked about in great detail, which is something I was really pleased about. It also offers advice on what you can do if you can’t breastfeed, ie. If you baby is poorly
'Not just a book about Breastfeeding'
or if you are unable to get baby to latch on correctly. This chapter would be particularly helpful for anyone who is struggling and thinking of changing to formula. Just a few tips from someone who has been there can be incredibly encouraging.
It is written in a very easy to read manner, you kind of feel like you’re reading something written by a good friend!
It’s funny, knowledgeable and comes in a very easy to read format with some rather amusing drawings!
I would recommend this book to anyone thinking about breastfeeding or to anyone who has an interest in the subject. If you are expecting a baby this is one book definitely worth investing in.
