When Baby Boo first started crawling I was beside myself with excitement. However, that euphoria was quickly replaced by dread when I realised that pretty much every area of our house posed some kind of threat to her. In the months since I’ve gradually turned what was a hazardous home into a safe haven. Read on for my top tips for basic babyproofing.
Since before Baby Boo was born I have been consistently baffled by car seats. From height and weight limits to installation and comfort, there’s so much to consider when it comes to purchasing one of those little padded thrones. As regular readers of this blog will know, when I was pregnant I wrote a list of tips to help parents choose the perfect car seat. I love a good list, and now that Baby Boo is moving up to a Group 1 car seat, I thought it was about time I revisited this topic. With this in mind I decided to call in the big guns and tracked down JustKidding operations manager and mum-of-two, Jacqueline Schrama, to get her top tips for choosing a car seat.
From baby baths to diaper bags your list of ‘essential’ can seem endless. The good news is that a lot of things can be purchased after baby’s birth, as and when you need them, so there’s no hurry to have every item on your wish list straight away. However, there is one piece of equipment that is vital before the big arrival, and that is a car seat. After all, how are you going to get your little bundle home from the hospital without it? Of course, finding the right car seat can be overwhelming as there are so many brands and types to choose from. Luckily, we’ve put together a list of questions you need to ask before you hit the shops.
