Baby Talk - the Good and the Bad


Parents of young children will no doubt have heard the term 'baby talk' being bandied about. Whether it be a well-meaning relative playfully saying 'goo goo gaga' to your baby or a friend telling you it is bad for speech and language development. As with most things, there are differing views but it is important to know the facts. So what exactly is baby talk and is it good or bad?

8 Reasons to Use Exploring Nature With Children In Your Homeschool


Nature study was not something I was familiar with as a child. After all, my parents trusted the UK education system for my education and exploring nature was most certainly not on the agenda. Therefore, I spent most of my life oblivious to the beauty that was right under my nose. I rushed past autumn seed heads, wild flowers and mini beasts without a backward glance. Now, as a homeschool mum, I am experiencing the joy of nature study for the first time alongside my children and it is all thanks to a wonderful nature curriculum. Let me tell you about it.

Reasons For Fasting in Ramadan - Activities For Kids + Free Printables!

I wanted to know what the point of it was and why Muslims would want to abstain from food and drink during daylight hours for a whole month. I must admit, it seemed like a pretty crazy thing to do!

Sainsbury's Little Ones Baby Food



Weaning your baby can be an anxious and exciting time. There are so many different methods out there and differing information about the dos and don'ts of starting your baby on solid food, so it can be hard to know what to do. Some say start at 4 months and some say 6 months. Some say to start with purees and others say to give them what you are eating. As a mother of four, currently weaning my fourth baby, a mixture of both methods has worked really well for us and this is where Sainsbury's Little Ones baby food has come in handy.
