This is a collaborative post. The trauma of Summer holidays is often the elephant in the room among parents. We all love seeing more of our little treasures because we don’t get the best of them in term time. And yet, it’s tough entertaining children who threaten to lurch into boredom at any moment. We need to be on top of our game. All the time. For six whole weeks. Reenergising with Berocca Berocca is the #1 energy vitamin in the UK. It contains eight B vitamins including B1 and B2. The B vitamins in Berocca help to release the body’s natural energy. This is a…

I’ve always struggled to find palm oil free bath products. The majority of brands use palm oil derivatives to make their products bubbly. But a few months ago, we reviewed Jack and Jill tooth care range for children. Since then, they’ve expanded to include bath products as well. We’ve been reviewing their new bath time range and you can win a hamper of them so you can try them yourself. Simplicity shampoo and body wash The simplicity range is perfect for sensitive skin. It is unscented and hypoallergenic. It is even fine for use on newborns. My girls both suffer from…

The girls are having a…

I glanced out of the window and saw them sauntering by. The familiar faces chatting and laughing. The same people as usual trailing behind the group. I couldn’t hear their words, their voices lost in the impenetrable wall of sound that is a baby’s cry. Only one of their party was missing. Left out not through malice, but by choice. Because now, she sits behind the window. Watching life go on around her, as if nothing had ever changed.

A few months ago, I reviewed some fabulous natural tooth care products from Jack and Jill Kids. At the time, I was a bit disappointed that they didn’t make something similar for adults. It is so difficult to find palm oil free toothpaste and toothbrushes are notoriously bad for the environment. That’s why I was delighted to hear that Jack and Jill have branched out to make The Natural Family Company – eco friendly tooth care for the whole family. Introducing NFco The Natural Family Company – NFco for short – was developed in response to numerous public requests for a…
