    Next stop on the Toddler Train: Toilet Training
    Posted on
    Toot toot. Hurray, we’ve nearly made it through the night sleeping (ok, some nights). Next stop on the toddler train is toilet training. Whether you don’t mind the dirty nappies or you can’t wait to see the back of them, the one thing you can’t wrap up in a nappy is your mattress. Or can you? We’ve created our Expect-a-Spill sheets so your mattress is protected, your little one sleeps in quilted comfort and your washing machine does the hard work instead of your bank account.

    Welcome to Flu Town

    Welcome to Flu Town

    Welcome to Flu-Town Ah its that wonderful time of the year. Snow capped mountains, mulled wine, woolly jumpers and open fires… and snot. Just bucket loads of snot. That has been my house the last week but I’m determined not to let it get on top of us. Thankfully its just a ‘cold’ and nothing more serious but even more reason to be on guard while immune systems are low. Going out in public is often a challenge as everyone I look at now resembles a mouth breathing germ machine and every surface I visualise armies of bacteria plotting their next move.

Unlike the adult eye, a developing retina will generally not see subtle shades of colour but can only detect large contrasts between light and dark, and because of this you will find that a newborn with be highly attracted to black and white patterns.

    There will be spills!

    One of the things that you will probably be told over and over again by helpful friends, mums and otherwise interested parties, is to make sure that your home is spotless to ensure that bubs is in a germ free and hygienic environment. That’s all very well pre-birth, as getting your home spick-and-span is all part of the natural nesting instinct that happens in the lead-up to giving birth.

    Many a been-there-done-that mother has laughed when a first-time mom talks about how challenging the newborn stage is.
