Muttermilchersatz Pre, HA, Stutenmilch und Co. 🇩🇪

Beinahe jede Mutter wird sich mit diesemIMG_9808 Thema schon auseinandergesetzt haben. Entweder weil sie nicht stillen möchte oder kann, oder wenn die Stillzeit vorbei ist, das Kind aber weiterhin noch bis ca. 1 Jahr ein Fläschchen bekommen soll. Ich persönlich möchte vorbereitet sein, für den Fall, dass ich nicht stillen kann, bevor Baby Nr.3 auf die Welt kommt. Schließlich muss man ja schnell handeln, würde dieser Fall eintreten. Also habe ich mir zuerst die Ökotest Ausgaben bestellt, die das Thema Muttermilchersatz aufgreifen. Dann fing ich an sie zu studieren… und das ist dabei heraus gekommen:

What I Needed to Start Baby Weaning – 12 Useful Items 🇬🇧

weaning3

Although it is a complete taboo, I mixed my weaning up between feeding some meals directly as puree to Charlotte and also giving her finger food a la Baby Led Weaning. I tried her on finger food at six months, but it was way too early for her to hold or even try and properly feed herself, so I started out with the usual sweet potato and parsnip purees and added in bits to nibble as she got more confident and was able to sit up properly. Now at ten months she is pretty much onto only finger food and hates being fed! Here are some bits and bobs which have helped with the weaning process:

Bugaboo Buffalo Test and Review 🇬🇧

IMG_7037

Here at Mama Chic, we want to tell you about products which we own and love and one of my biggest love affairs is always with my pram. With my first baby it was a Silver Cross sleepover when she was born and then a Bugaboo Cameleon when I needed something a bit more town and car friendly. I loved them both. In the time between our first two girls we got a little pug called Oscar. Obviously he needs daily walks and I knew this would become a part of our routine when I looked for a pram. We often walk him in the local woods and fields. We also moved back into town from an outlying village and so I can reach pretty much everything on foot.

Was Leuchtet so schön in der Nacht? nip® Schnuller natürlich!

nip® Leuchtschnuller für Mädchen.
nip® Leuchtschnuller für Mädchen.

Das Lieblingsspiel meines Mannes war es, dabei zuzusehen, wie ich nachts den Schnuller unseres Kindes im dunklen Kinderzimmer  zu finden versuche, nach dem sie ihn aus dem Bett geworfen hatte. Ein unterhaltsamer Nebeneffekt von einem Babyfon mit Nachtsichtkamera!
Aber nun ist das Spiel vorbei, denn mein Suchen hat ein Ende, dank den Leuchtschnullern von nip®!

Big Mother is watching you. Philips Avent SCD 603/00 Test and Review 🇬🇧

IMG_6748 IMG_6749

With my first baby, baby monitors with a camera were not well known and were pretty expensive. I was happy with my Philips Avent SCD536/00 to monitor our baby when she was sleeping. It had good test reviews for reliability and distance plus it was low on the electro smog emission scale (see more details here). It was as good as promised and we always felt like we were in touch with our baby’s sleeping and waking through the monitor. It worked on out in the garden and even through the thick, old farmhouse walls of my mother-in-law’s house. So why change a winning formula for baby number two?
