Apologies my update for the things that have arrived for Thing 3 is a little late. Thing 3 has had a wonderful week and has received a lot of amazing items
If you haven't seen SnuggleBundl you really need to go and take a look. They offer a great solution for transporting a sleeping baby from a car seat into the house or even the pushchair. Meaning the car seat can stay in the car. This is great because there is no lifting a heavy seat or disturbing a sleeping child, not only this but it means a baby can sleep in the lie flat position. Perfect for any parent but particularly those who have had C sections. I cannot wait to use SnuggleBundl with Thing 3. The girls have already been practising with their babies
This week I have ordered some cloth nappies from some pre loved cloth sites and they have arrived. I am going to do as I did with the girls and use cloth nappies when at home and where possible out and about. Although I tend to use disposable when out because I had a habit of forgetting the used nappy in the bag and then not washing it soon enough [you get the picture]. At home however I loved cloth nappies because I just put them straight in the wash. The combination approach worked well for us. I have been amazed though at just how much choice there is, as there was very little when my eldest was born.
I am really lucky to be working with Tommee Tippee and will be doing a more in depth review when baby arrives. This week Thing 3 received some Tommee Tippee milk feeding bibs. I loved these bibs with the girls. They have a larger part round the neck which stops the milk dribbling down babies neck keeping it dry. The soft material is also perfect for wiping away any spills. They are so much more absorbent than other bibs and are on the top of my must have list for any baby.
We also received some closer to nature advanced comfort bottles. These bottles feature a special vent which helps to reduce colic. I was very lucky that neither of my girls suffered with colic and I wanted to do everything I can to help Thing 3. The bottles come in a pack of 4 and I am looking forward to seeing how Thing 3 gets on with them.
As Thing 3 is a very lovely surprise, it also means that I am starting from scratch with everything. The Tommee Tippee Closer to nature complete starter kit has everything in it I need to feed baby.

Ok I won't lie this is not strictly for Thing 3, but it would not be here without Thing 3! With my girls I struggled to get comfy during the later stages of trimester 2 and trimester 3 and would fidget in bed trying to find the best sleeping position. I can slowly see this creeping up on me again, as I begin to wake in the night to get comfy with Thing 3.
The Dreamgenii is multi award winning and Patent pending. As I am now 20 weeks I cannot wait to start using it. From 20 weeks the Dreamgenii can help encourage optimal foetal positioning which can lead to a shorted and less painful labour. I really like the sound of this, along with the fact it supports back, bump and knees it sounds fantastic. I shall let you know how I get on soon
