Seek and ye shall find…i found the ultralight Joovy

DSC_0181(2)

Ever since my first daughter was born 4 years ago I have gone through more buggies and pushchairs than kiddicare.com. My first ever was a baby weaver travel system which came with a carry cot and a car seat. By baby was nearly 4 kilos at birth and long so she did not get much use of the car seat. She only ever went in the carry cot once at 2 weeks old and cried at the top of her lungs. After this I went through other buggies and most recently the Hauck Freerider which I only purchased 1 year ago but hardly used. Anyway to cut the long story short I have found the buggy that I should have purchased 4 years ago…introducing the Joovy ultralight! I did not want to waste anymore money on buggies so I decided to buy on gumtree.com. A nice lady listed one some time in May,i paid £65 and collected. My superhusband steam cleaned it for me and it looks fantastic. So far I have managed to ditch the sling for good and have been using my new best friend the Joovy ultralight. It is so easy to push and I love the fact that Grace can stand up on the board or sit on the bench if she gets tired after a long day out. This buggy has made nursery run so much easier especially when getting on or off the bus. It only takes the space of a single buggy so no more grumpy bus drivers telling me to wait for the next bus. Shame this buggy is not widely available here and I only had 2 options ebay or gumtree. There were plenty of sellers all based in America but by the time you calculate £80 shipping fee, it is enough to put you off. My advice if purchasing a buggy, buy a good one which can be used for years and for more than 1 baby if you intend to have more of course…(wink wink). This buggy can accommodate a new born baby by enabling you to attach a car seat. It can accommodate a toddler and so far I had been able to carry my 1 year old,her big sister and their friend from nursery so yes it is amazing it can take 3 children. I am really enjoying my hassle free outings and highly recommend this buggy.

A mama must know: the truth about hydrogenated fat ewwwww yuk

So i was watching the 700 club recently (one of my fave programmes) and i came across a report on hydrogenated fat. It was both shocking and alarming. I had no idea how many food products contain this synthetic ingredient. I have found myself reading labels and ingredients before buying. Today i went to the supermarket with my toddler and she wanted biscuit, Now she is a good girl and eats healthy food..anything from okra to yam etc.. so i have no issues with giving her the occasional treat especially as she does not have a sweet tooth but still i would much rather stick to a piece of fruit if the only biscuits available contain this dodgy ingredient. From what i understand it is synthetic so your body does not recognise it and therefore does not know what to do with it..yikes that is not good at all.

Strange news: dandelion removed from a toddler’s ears

baby-ear-ache-15657829

a story from daily mail today mentions doctors in China have removed 2cm long dandelion from a 16 months little girl. The child had been complaining for a while about an earache for a while and a few days a go her mother had a look in and felt something was not quite right. She took the little girl to the doctor where the shocking discovery was made. It is not known how the flower got there but it is thought the ear canal provided the best environment for it to thrive ouch ouch.
Doctors explained the dandelion was so big that it filled her entire ear canal and it could have caused severe damage to the child if it had stayed longer so thank God it was discovered…praying that the little girl recovers fully very soon.
