Changing Bag Essentials

Changing Bag Essentials

No changing bag would be functional without them. At the moment we are using peppa pig little angels pants from asda. I am a big fan of kit and kin nappies but with all of Amelia’s climbing and crawling the tabs on nappies just aren’t staying done up. So the pants are brilliant.

Johnson’s moisturiser
This moisturiser smells wonderful and is currently on sale for £1.25 in the asda baby event. It’s worked wonders on Amelia’s dry patches of skin and the scent of it is appealing yet subtle.

Kit and kin magic salve
This nappy cream is a must have. With all natural ingredients and an almost herbal smell it is extra kind to baby skin and works like a dream. If Amelia is looking a bit red then a little of this magic salve and by the next nappy change there’s a noteable improvement.

Baby wipes
Not to be forgotten – although I have done in the past and ended up having to buy them whilst out – baby wipes are an essential I couldn’t imagine not having. Kit and kin wipes are lovely, as are asda fragrance free ones. At the moment we are using the boots fragrance free wipes. (Boots baby club means you get 10 points per pound instead of the normal 4.)

As Amelia gets older I’ve been packing lighter. Her reflux doesn’t necessitate three changes of clothes and six Muslims anymore so it’s not such a mission every time we go out. Trying to take a nice photo for this post didn’t go so well. As you can see below Amelia decided she wanted the magic salve.


We ❤️ Ella’s Kitchen Part 2

Amelia is now 6 months old – nearly 7 and we are a big fan of Ella’s kitchen (see my previous post here).


We are doing a combination of baby led weaning and traditional weaning. (For information on these Ella’s kitchen is wonderful)
As she is getting the hang of eating I am always looking for more meals and snacks she can try. One of Amelia’s favourites is cow and gates spaghetti bolognaise. (Yes I will be making my own baby food but I can’t get it as smooth) Her favourite snack at the moment is the strawberry and banana melty puffs by Ella’s kitchen. They are easy for her to pick up and if she’s being cheeky she Holden one on each hand and tries to eat two at a time!

We went food shopping in Asda last week and found Ella’s kitchen vanilla and banana bread puddings. They sound yummy and Ella’s kitchen food is organic so is good all round. I also picked up two purees, thicker ones, so that Amelia can get used to lumpy food.
What are your little ones favourites?
