So, when I tweeted for some advice on what other mums use, miamoo seemed to be the one that had the most positive results. miamoo founder Saira Khan, started her research at the tender age of 18, whilst at University in 1998. After years of suffering personal agony with extremely dry skin and unable to find a cure, Saira put her knowledge and passion into starting her own...

Review – Aqueous Calamine Lotion

Aqueous calamine lotion
When I think of chamomile lotion, I think of this annoyingly thick, gloopy type cream that my mother used to slap on me when I had chicken pox, sunburn or any other type of skin irritation. So, when bliss Healthcare got in touch for me to review their version of Chamomile lotion – Aqueous Calamine Lotion on bumpandmeblog.com, I found myself being a little hesitant but intrigued at the same time. I agreed and here I am reviewing it for my readers. Ill start with what it says on their website about this cream Contains Calamine and Zinc Oxide (proven...

Where: Yorkshire wildlife park, Doncaster When: Wednesday 22nd may 2014 Who: 2 ½ persons Housing some of the world’s finest wildlife, Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster is one of the most fantastic places I’ve been in a long time. As we walked in, we were greeted by a cleverly placed gift shop, which of course on my way out I purchased a £22.00 lion soft toy !!! Not Necessary!! Anyway, as we walked into the very clean and modern courtyard, we spotted a café, and the first portal call was to be fed and watered, so that’s what we did,...

For those of you that follow Bump And Me on TWITTER or viewed my last post on the MaCom compression belt, will know, that recently I have challenged myself to a little thing called #zapthemumtum… so you can imagine my delight, when THE mother of all ZAPPERS AKA Slendertone wanted me to review their Slendertone Abs belt on bumpandmeblog.com. Now, I have used other toning devices in the past, that have dazzled me with their fancy gimmics and promises, and in the end, all I have been left with is an empty bank account and no firmer than I was before...

In the 15 months I have being a mum, I’ve in total, had four changing bags to date. One from Mama’s&Papa’s, One from Mothercare and one from Louis Vuitton (Not really a changing bag, but it’s really pretty) But the latest edition to my collection has seriously blown my mind.  I’m a Mary Poppins kind of girl when it comes to my bags, I like to pack everything but the kitchen sink, and trust me, if I could get it in, I would probably pack it! So you can imagine my delight, when last week, The Bump And Me Blog HQ...

Travelling With Newborns (Review)

Times journalist Matt Rudd published a LOL piece on travelling with his small baby recently in relation to how The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge travel with Prince George on their Royal Tour of New Zealand and Australia. This article really had me in fits of giggles, and although I haven’t yet travelled with Jasper, I have travelled on planes where I have sat next to unruly children, screaming newborns and tantrum toddlers so I could relate to his very funny comments and views on travelling with small children. Travelling with children of...
