REVIEW – Kit & Kin Eco Friendly Nappies & Skincare

Did you know that the average disposable nappy takes between 300 and 500 years to biodegrade!? FIVE HUNDRED YEARS. That means that the stinky poopy nappy I have just changed, will still be hanging around when my daughter’s, daughter’s, daughter’s, daughter’s, daughter’s (or sons!) have been born. Shocking right? Disposable nappies are the third largest contributor to landfill, despite the fact that only 5% of the population use them! In the UK alone we get through 8 million nappies every single day. Sometimes I feel like I am forever changing nappies. With a 7 month old, we get through a LOT of nappies...

Qutee – A Blogger’s Alternative to Crowdsourcing

I set up my blog in 2013 after the birth of my first child. One of my main reasons for doing so was that I wanted to share my thoughts and experiences as a parent. Erin was my first child, and like many first time Mums, I didn’t have a clue what I was doing, and relied upon other people’s advice, recommendations and suggestions to help me make my decisions. When I created Real Mum Reviews, I wanted to share the things I learnt as a Mum and hopefully help some other people along the way! As you will know, I also LOVE a good...

I was due a good sleeper….

I was due a good sleeper. After 2.5 years off sleepless nights with my eldest, I assured myself that this time, with my second child, this time would be different. ‘All babies are different’, they said. ‘This one will sleep through from 6 weeks’, they said.. ‘Well it can’t be any worse than it was with Erin can it?!’ they said Except it turns out it CAN be worse: much much worse. When someone was dishing out the sleeping babies – I appear to have joined the wrong queue. The queue for insomniacs maybe, or those who like to...

REVIEW – Hairburst for New Mums

One thing no one tells you about when you have a baby is just how much pregnancy can affect your hair. The hair shedding that happens as a result of your hormone changes is significant, and although it is slowing down a little, the amount of hair I have been losing this time around is pretty shocking! Unlike most of the other unglamourous side effects of pregnancy, it’s the one thing that I hadn’t been pre-warned about before I had Erin, and even second time around, it has still come as a bit of a shock. The shedding started about 2 months...
