When it comes to parenting, there are two very distinct ways that it can be viewed. There's the romanticised, idealistic view; and there's the much more realistic, real-life way. The first, is our dream view of how we are, or want to be, as parents. That's the view where we see ourselves with that grinning, [...]
I said in a previous review that the material used by Messy Me would be much more suited to something like a splash-mat, bib or highchair cover than a changing bag. Well, since we're currently giving three meals a day with Isabelle, and therefore need something much easier to clean, I'm back here, reviewing their [...]
It wasn't too long ago that I was moaning at my wife for buying a MyHummy Sleepy Head when we had a few rough nights of Isabelle waking and refusing to settle. I said it in that review, and I'll repeat it here. I thought "It was something that was simply being sold to overly panicked parents who wanted a quick fix for an easy night."
Let's be honest, the main reason you're even considering buying this product is because it's Disney. I know that's why we bought it. We already had the Finding Nemo bouncer, so why not complete the set and get the activity gym. So that's what we did. We paid slightly over what you would consider a reasonable price for an activity gym just because it's Disney. I'll admit, that we're probably suckers. But we're not the only ones.
This is an ideal changing bag for those who want to travel light and not have the pain of carrying a regular sized bag around. Not that I've ever seen this as a problem, I will admit, but then I literally carry a bag around for a living (postman, if you must ask). But despite its small size, you can surprisingly still fit a decent amount inside. This is what we comfortably put in our clutch bag:
I'll admit, that when we were getting everything ready for when Isabelle arrived, we didn't put much thought into a baby carrier. Admittedly, we went cheap. £10.99 cheap to be precise. And in fairness, I didn't actually mind the carrier that we had. If you want to read more about me and my experiences with the carrier, then feel free to read this.
I'll admit, when Rachel first told me she spent £40 on something that simply makes some white noise, it's safe to say I was pretty sceptical. In my opinion, it was something that was simply being sold to overly panicked parents who wanted a quick fix for an easy night. It was something that I felt took a little bit of the parenting away. Rather than actually comforting your baby, you can just use this. And also, I have a Spotify account, ergo I have plenty of white noise albums for babies. Why spend £40 on something that I already have on my phone. But, just like Jerry Orbach says in Dirty Dancing, when I'm wrong, I say I'm wrong. And thus far, it's actually working.
