Natural Amber Review

Signs of teething.

  • red cheeks
  • dribbling
  • chewing things including toys,clothing,hands
  • grizzling
  • temperature
  • restlessness
  • swollen gums
  • not sleeping properly
  • not eating
  • rubbing face
Over the years I have tried many things to try to ease our sons pain some have worked,some didn't however not many have had much effect as our son has gotten older,these included:

  • frozen carrots and bananas
  • Nelsons teething granules
  • Detinox and bonjela
  • teething bling and gumigem
  • sophie the giraffe
  • lots of differant teething toys and ones with gel that you put in the fridge

I think you get the idea, as parents Teething it's one of those times a parent dreads,after all who likes to see their baby/toddler in pain,I know I don't and with our son Aaron even more so,Aaron has global development delay and as many people ask what is it....the clue is in the name he is delayed in all areas,he didn't walk until he was 3 1/2,he now parrot talks and is undergoing assessment for Autism and another of his delay's is his teething he has been teething since he was 3 months old and he still has a few to come through,our dentist isn't worried just said it will be more painful as the gums get harder as you grow,so you can imagine my delight when I was given the opportunity by Natural Amber to receive and let my son test out one of their gorgeous looking Baltic amber teething necklaces.

The Baltic region is known as the home of amber,because it has the largest deposits of amber in the world which is known as Baltic amber.

Our Thoughts:

Aaron has been using the necklace for a couple of weeks now,we love it and so does he,at first he didn't want me to put it on him I think he was worried what I was trying to do but once it was on he was fine and just carried on like normal,on the outset it it a gorgeous necklace,love the colour of it, I have heard the more amber you wear the more your body absorbs and therefore the more you will notice a difference,I'm not sure how true that is or how much I believe it but I am considering buying a bracelet for Aaron to team with it. Now doe it work? I'm sure some will disagree with me but in my opinion it does,now I'm basing this on the knowledge of what our son is normally like,he is still teething constantly and i know this from his flushed cheeks and the fact he keeps chewing his fingers,however the way he is different is that he isn't being grouchy,crying or being clingy,he's also sleeping I do remove his necklace when he goes to bed but i tend to leave it on till he starts snoozing but only as myself or my partner or sat with him the whole time,we would never leave him unattended whilst wearing the necklace,he has been sleeping right through once asleep,on a few bad days he has woken grizzly from his teeth but after an hour if that of putting the necklace on along with a few mummy cuddles he has brightened up and carried on like normal. It really has been a lifesaver or should I say a ear saver!

Lastly I love the length of the necklace,It's short enough I don't need to worry about it becoming a strangulation risk.and did I mention just how beautiful it is...don't believe me take a look at the pictures and judge for yourself.

Kleenbots Review

Nappies have always been a talking point to Kleenbots in terms of quality and expense,they weren't happy so decided to do something about it and since mid 2013 that's exactly what they did.....

I had the opportunity to review some nappies for our son Aaron, at 4 years old he still wears nappies 24/7 due to his special needs hes nowhere near ready for potty training yet...

Now normally we use Pampers or Huggies either size 4+ or size 5,and as everyone knows unless the baby event is on or you have coupons Pampers or Huggies  nappies at full price are expensive however one thing i noticed right away was how really well priced they was... for a box of 180 nappies sized 4 which was the size we were reviewing it costs £31.04 where else buy pampers or Huggies when there's no deal on you are looking at around £28.00 for just 120 nappies so right away for just 3 pounds more you get an extra 60 nappies and if that's not good enough the price given is with them being delivered so you can sit in comfort and let someone else do all the leg work!  that's just Wow in my opinion.

The other really positive thing i noticed was how well they fit even if i get size 5 nappies normally they can be pretty snug and not too stretchy around our sons waist,with Kleenbots they were super stretchy and actually fit him really nicely,i love the wetness indicator on the nappies,the fact they were so soft our son didn't get any eczema  flair ups,and best of all we get no leaks...even during the night, Brilliant!

I love Kleenbots. I do wish I could buy them in the local supermarkets,as I'm never too keen about ordering online,however they are so good I think i should look into ordering more,fantastic value for money.

Why not go and check out Kleenbots online and order a free sample now,all you do is pay for postage,you will love them I promise!

Weymouth Carnival 2015

The weather was terrible,everyone walking around was wet and grumbling....however the Weymouth community volunteers and everyone involved in the carnival was happy and welcoming as always despite the was lovely walking around the stalls being greeted with smiles,after the stalls we went back home to dry off and warm up before coming back out for the carnival,the carnival was fantastic as did seem to be shorter though i'm not sure if it just went faster due to the weather or some floats couldn't make it or if the budget was less due to cuts ect after all lots of hard work went into making sure the carnival did indeed go forward this year...which I'm glad of as summer in Weymouth just wouldn't be the same without the carnival.Fingers crossed we get better weather for next year and clear sky's too so we can watch the red arrows and see the fireworks as sadly this year it was really foggy at the time they started......these minor things aside though...a great day had by all!
