When Mr H was born he was given a soft toy panda bear. That panda bear, known as Panda, became not only his best friend but also a member of the family. When Mr H and his family went on boating holidays on the Norfolk Broads Panda would go with them. And Mr H’s sister would make him an outfit that matched the colours of the boat they were staying on during their holiday. When Panda was looking worn and…

Caring For My Baby My Way With Baby Dove

A photograph of a bottle of Sensitive Head to Toe Body Wash and Real Moisture Bar from Baby Dove lying on a towel covered in a pattern of pink, green, blue and yellow ducks and a rubber duck - Caring For My Baby My Way With Baby Dove - Mrs H's favourite things

In sponsorship with Baby Dove Both my children have very sensitive and dry skin that has a tendency to look red and sore. Little Miss H often gets eczema under her armpits. So I believe it’s important that the baby care products I use on them are gentle and mild and offer complete care for their delicate skin. Until now I’ve struggled to find a baby care range that I’m completely happy with. But thankfully, Dove has recently launched a…

A photograph of four products from Jack N' Jill's new natural bathtime range - the photograph includes the Bath Bubbles, Shampoo & Body Wash and Moisturiser from the Simplicity range and the moisturiser from the Serenity range - Making a Splash with Jack N' Jill's New Natural Bathtime Range - A review & giveaway - Mrs H's favourite things

Bathtime is an essential part of our bedtime routine. And it is now one of my favourite parts of the day. I love seeing my two children in the bath together laughing and giggling. The bath products that we use are an essential part of this sacred time. But both the children have different requirements of what they want at bathtime. Little Miss H wants bubbles and lots of them. And Little Mister H needs a mild shampoo that won’t…

A sepia tinted photograph of a newborn baby girl having skin to skin and lying in her Mummy's arms - The Sadness of Not Being Able to Breastfeed My Babies - Mrs H's favourite things

This week is World Breastfeeding Week 2017. A week dedicated to promoting, protecting and supporting breastfeeding. I agree with it wholeheartedly. But this week has made me sad. Because I still have issues about the fact that I was not able to breastfeed my babies. Little Miss H is now four years old. But even after all this time, I feel guilt that I was not able to breastfeed. And I feel a tug in my heart every time I…

Now the miscarriages are over

A photograph of a woman walking with her baby in a carrier. She is hugging him and walking through some gardens and by lush green trees - this is the featured image for a post entitled Once The Miscarriages are Over - Once The Miscarriages are Over - Mrs H's favourite things

Trigger warning: you may find this post upsetting if you have experienced miscarriages. In a little over a week our rainbow baby boy will turn one. That is a whole year of having his sunny presence in our lives. And a year of knowing that the miscarriages are far behind us.  My last miscarriage was in May 2015. And in September 2015 we were given the news that the miscarriages were unexplained. That there wasn’t a known reason for our…

How did you spend your May Day Bank Holiday? I spent it going through boxes and boxes of baby clothes. Tiny outfits that our little girl and boy wore when they were younger. The first sleepsuit that we dressed them in when they were born. The outfit they wore when we brought them home. The dungarees they were wearing when they met their grandparents. The party outfits that we bought for their Welcome to the World celebrations. Looking through these…

Wicked Uncle Review – finding the perfect baby gift

A photograph of an eight month old baby playing with some fabulous presents from the Baby section of the toy gift service website Wicked Uncle - including the A to Z Alphabet cloth book and Rabbit in Dungarees Baby Rattle from Ragtales and wearing a Fun Bandana Bib from Zippy - A Wicked Uncle Review finding the perfect baby gift _ Mrs H's favourite things

Back in February the toy gift service Wicked Uncle challenged us to use their website to find the perfect baby gift for Little Mister H. We enthusiastically accepted. Poor Little Mister H doesn’t actually have that many books or toys as they often get commandeered by his older sister. And she isn’t overly happy with him playing with the baby toys that used to be hers either. As a result, I am always excited when I get the opportunity to get…
