Sleeping with Your Baby: A Parent's Guide to Cosleeping
Sleeping with Your Baby: A Parent's Guide to Cosleeping
Price: £9.20

4.0 out of 5 stars Read this if you are considering bedsharing, 5 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Read this book if you are considering bedsharing or cosleeping (sleeping in the same room) with your baby. It is also good to give to your partner and discuss together. The book is quite short and the main message is: cosleeping is good for babies and here is how to do it should you choose to.
It is very refreshing read in an environment where everyone says "Never cosleep. Period" while human species did this for centuries and in many cultures still do. This book is more relevant for breastfeeding mothers rather than bottle feeding (the author gives advice to bottle feeding couples too, but i found that a lot of his writing can be guilt inducing for bottle feeding mums).
I gave the book four stars because It focuses predominantly on babies needs and while parents' needs are mentioned (mothers report better sleep when cosleeping, reduced risk of breast cancer when breastfeeding, etc) i would like to see more evidence (or at least testimonials) on how cosleeping impacts parents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant product, 4 Dec. 2013
I got this hammock (on Kiddicare - it's £159 with next day delivery there) when my newborn was two weeks old. It is a great product: fits right next to our bed, swings in all directions and the baby (now two months old) sleeps peacefully in it.
His sleeps immediately got longer by approx. 1 hour compared to a Moses basket because of the swinging motion that soothed him. He now sleeps for up to 6 hours which is pretty good for a breastfed baby without any Gina Ford routines (we could be just lucky).
The hammock is also easy to store and transport as it takes very little space.
For all the mums reading this - I definitely recommend it!

I got this case and my husband got official LG one. Guess - who is more satisfied with design (slim case), feel (sturdy and nice) and price (£9 vs £31 incl delivery)? Great little case - will definitely recommend

A friend recommended to get Cica-care to treat the cesarean scar. I got this one as it is the biggest/longest available on Amazon - I wanted to whole scar to be covered.
It's a great product - helps to dissolve the scar and prevent keloids.

5.0 out of 5 stars great jeans, 20 Feb. 2013
I love these jeans. They are a very solid quality, almost don't stretch (I don't like stretchy jeans, cheap jeans always stretch too much).
Great fit too - I am between UK 10 and 12 and w29 was just right.

This shoes are great quality, but unfortunately too narrow. I bought them as I had FRYE shoes before and they are usually the right width in size 6. These ones are not. Straight into returns basket. Alas!

4.0 out of 5 stars Slim fit, 15 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good quality jeans: nice color, well made. Have a bit of stretch in them.
I am between UK size 10 and 12 and usually take jeans in size 28, so took 28 in this model too. These ones are slim fit - they look great, I could wear them for a night out, but not for work. I prefer a bit more relaxed fit for the office.
