The Elf on the Shelf

Written by Lauren. Posted in General

Last year we bought into the craze that seems to be sweeping houses in every corner of the globe.  The boys didn’t really “get it” so it was a bit lack lustre but this year as December crept upon us the excitement from the Boys motivated me to make a proper effort with the Elf.  In fact our one Elf became 3!  I decided that it would be more fun with multiple Elves and a lovely lady on a Facebook group made a Tutu for our girl and my parents and I spent an evening performing surgery to wire up their limbs.  After much deliberation they were named Snap, Crackle and Pop!

The Kiddicare Sleep Diary

Written by Lauren. Posted in General

For the past month I have been recording mine and Dot’s sleep and moods as part of the Kiddicare Sleep Survey for the Kiddicare Blog.  Within the first week I noticed that even though I thought that Dot didn’t sleep a lot she actually slept a fair bit!  She has always been very good at knowing day from night and settles really well after a feed at night but a few weeks ago she started waking every 90 minutes or so at night – after A LOT of tears from me because I was so exhausted I decided to stop breastfeeding and immediately we noticed a rigid routine from her.
