Hello sunshine!

Hey there gorgeous people!

I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weather that we are experiencing? I hope it lasts, just makes me feel so much better when the sun is shining through my bedroom window in the morning! The only problem with summer days, I have now found, is the lighter evenings. I love them but I do think it confuses my little Nico. Bless him, he’s in such a good routine but even with blackout blinds in his nursery still doesn’t feel like night time. He’s also waking up earlier…..sometimes 5am earlier! This could be a combination of the 8-10 month sleep regression, his teeth or just the daylight but its tough.

Anyone else experiencing sleep issues with their little ones? If so and you have any great tips I’d love to hear from you. Drop me a comment, message on instagram or email me (details below!). My trick is to give him a drink of water, pop a dummy in and give him his favourite cuddly lamb. With this he is usually happy to lay there for another 45 minutes to an hour or even drift back to sleep if I’m lucky!

We have booked to go away for a big chunk of time during the summer and I’m buying lots of summer outfits for Nico. I was thinking of just a nappy and nice nappy cover for during the Days around the pool. Will be the coolest option for him and much better than seeing him in just a nappy.

I found some great ones on Ebay. Very reasonably priced and lots of choice. This one is very nautical feeling, perfect for holidays! At £3.15 such a bargain!



Another ray of sunshine in my life right now is the new Traverze Stroller from Diono. Perfect for holidays and whizzing around town. It folds down so small that you can take it onboard most airlines. It has a black zip on cover and handy pull along handle, just like a suitcase! Genius!

The Traverze has a number of plus points, it glides easily with smooth wheels and shock absorbers. It has a flip flop friendly break – super for summer and weighs less than 5.6kg. Priced at £250 its well worth the money. The back rest lays flat so your little one can enjoy a cozy nap anytime too. I love it!

All covered and ready to board!

I’m off to enjoy the sunshine and search for some cute summer occasion outfits for Nico….we have a christening and wedding to attend!

Big love & Cath up soon,
