I've always been careful about the ingredients that go into the products that I use on my own skin and hair, but even more so with my children. With Noah and Essie especially, as Noah suffers with eczema and Essie has such delicate skin being so young. Natura Siberica have created an award winning range of daily baby care products and we were sent a few of them to try out.

As a blogger who known for being a breastfeeding mum and having written about breastfeeding a few times, I'm often contacted by breast pump brands to feature their products. I'm very choosy about brands that I feature and until now I've never reviewed any breast pumps. And then I heard about Pumpables and their new Milk Genie breast pump. It sounded great and as I am going to be donating my breast milk again I wanted to give it a go!

I've always had a soft spot for Next clothing, especially after having my first baby. Their clothes are such good quality and so well made, in gorgeous styles and designs. I find it impossible to pop in without leaving with something for one of my children - and their sales are legendary! I am just in love with all things cloudy at the moment and Next sent some outfits for the children, including this sweet set for Essie.

It's safe to say that I'm a little obsessed with doing the laundry. I really enjoy it, like really enjoy it! Maybe it's just me, but there is something so satisfying about a pile of freshly washed soft clean clothes. We're already a fan of Ecover household products in our family, using their plant- and mineral-based washing up liquid, fabric softener and colour laundry detergent. I was sent a bottle of Ecover Non-Bio Concentrated Laundry Detergent to put to the test on our usual laundry loads and see how it compared.

My name is Sian and I am addicted to PacaPods! This is the third PacaPod changing bag I have had since having Essie. Firstly the Richmond, my first foray into the world of pink, then the Mirano which is the Mary Poppins of changing bags and allows me to carry so much! And now I have a Hartland, which is from PacaPod's new Travel Lite range launched this summer.

British weather is a funny old thing, especially as the seasons are changing. We seem to go from having sunny, hot, shorts weather to suddenly needing the winter coats and central heating on within a matter of days! To cope with the ever-changing climate, we were sent a Mama Designs Babasac from Apples & Pips who I'm a blog ambassador for. It's a multi-tog baby sleeping bag, so whether it's warm or cool your baby just needs one sleeping bag as it's a 2.5 tog and 1 tog sleeping bag in one!

Like a lot of people, I thought maternity leave was going to be a relaxing break from full-time work. That I would get a lot of downtime with my baby and get to unwind. Maybe catch up on a boxset, read some books, take long baths. Oh my goodness, I couldn't have been more wrong! Especially as new research from Graco reveals that new parents are actually MORE active than office workers who regularly exercise. Don't believe me? Let's take a look at the research!

Parents vs office workers - who racks up the most miles?

Back in June I announced that I was teaming up with Graco as one of their UK Generation Graco bloggers for 2017 and at the launch event I got to take a peek at some of the products I'd be trying out. One of those was the new Graco Featherweight, an ultra lightweight stroller that weighs about the same as the average newborn baby and is the lightest stroller in the UK.
