I thought I would open up with my experience I have previously worked in a kitchen cooking at one point for kids in a holiday park and later in life in a restaurant kitchen. I have 2 children 1 currently 4 nearly 5 with asd (significance later) and a 1 year old.
Both boys were baby lead weaned from 6 months (no puree) both are generally good…[Read more]
This is something I know that can scare many parents and is something people think they are getting very wrong. In an age of Instagram super parents with uber meals and ethical vegan diets. To having to support children with allergies and food intolerances it can feel like a struggle to get out 3 meals a day or any healthy snacks so share with…[Read more]
Also a submission service for new places and option to submit updates if things change such as closure so things don’t get too out of date and it doesn’t require constant checking of each item on the system
Parks that have interactivity such as play areas or climbing walls.
Free museums or exhibitions again with activities.
Great value activities (pay once for a years access type)
And some sort of voting if you have been to something

My eldest has a tablet that he can use but no online video on it. The only time he gets you tube is when we are going round the supermarket so very minimal hours.
I feel for you mate we are in an opposite situation but not to the same number. 2 boys but my wife was deviated that our 2nd wasnt a girl. Although the practicalities of having same sex kids have sort of won her over. She on the other hand has pretty much ruled out any more.
Good luck but your girls will always make you proud
We are having more and more problems getting our eldest 4 nearly 5 year old to go to bed. Every day he gets into his bed and doesnt want us to leave as he says he is scared of the dark. He has a personal led nightlight to try and combat the fear however we still get a fight every night.
To make things harder his little bro will only go to sleep in…[Read more]
We were lucky with both boys and neither has been bothered after about 5 mins. We had more issues when the oldest had chicken pox and we were suggested to give him piriton. He wouldn’t take any oral medicine for over 6 months.
As Dominic has said get to citizens advice. If you can speak to you ex as see if any compromise can be made. The kids need to always come first and if she can’t provide a place they are happy and safe in maybe she will need to concede some of the overnights until she can.
Good luck mate

If care is 50/50 there should be no discussion about child maintenance. In relation to benefits it is a very sticky situation and we’ll worth speaking to your local citizens advice. Also maybe worth agreeing that any child benefit payments get directly allocated to your daughter. Everyone’s situation is different and we don’t know a lot about your…[Read more]

I can only speak for the Joie Chrome dlx. We have had it from newborn (a year and a bit ago) and it is still going strong. We must have been lucky and got it for less than £200 and got the chrome carry cot for £1 (a mistake by the retailer). We also used an igemm car seat with it. Really can’t fault it other than we found it quite large in our c…[Read more]
We have had a fair number over the years most still in use. Started with the eldest in a 2nd hand(I know that isn’t a good idea but the oh was a single parent on benefits) infant Carrier. He was then moved into the Joie stages and rear faced until he as 3 and a bit changed to front due to not fitting in the car and the oh being pregnant and…[Read more]

We also has a bedside cot but due to bottle feeding and a baby that almost instantly slept for 6 hours at a time he stayed in there until 7months then moved to a full cot and now a bottom bunk with bed guard. The first was a different story my oh was a single mum and he shared the bed until about a year when he got his own cot/bed in a new house…[Read more]

My partner initially tried to breast feed with both and both had to then get top-ups and eventually went completely bottle. She has always said she wished she could breast feed but didn’t feel she had the time or support to just get it right. Combined with a hungry baby she just ran out of juice.
It took a long while to realise she wasn’t a…[Read more]
