Mooncup Model A Menstrual Cup
Mooncup Model A Menstrual Cup
Price: £17.09

5.0 out of 5 stars Just PERFECT, PERFECT! Should have bought this years ago... Will never, EVER, buy tampons and pads again!, 25 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely tremendous, life-changer. I confess I have been hesitating for the past year, should I buy and take the chance? I've read so many good reviews, but at the same time I was kind of anxious of trying a new method, being so used with tampons and sanitary pads... I will divide in pros and cons, although for me the cons are not so negative points, but some features that some women may note me so willing to embrace.
PROS:
-You don't feel it. It's the truth, you forget you're with your period!
-More ecological and educated choice.
-One-time purchase and you're good for years of sanitary protection, so more economic choice.
-You get more familiarized with your own body and fluids, so it can contribute in a positive way for your self-esteem.
-If well inserted (i.e., if there is a seal) there are absolutely no leaks. Yay for white pants with your period!
-Totally safe material, no risks for your health.

CONS:
-You have to be "at ease" and to know your body to be comfortable enough to try this. For the first times, you'll have to insert, remove and re-insert a couple of times just to be sure the stem is the right length, so you'll need to "feel" with your finger, well, inside you. And this I know it's not everyone who is comfortable enough to do so. Not a problem, but maybe you should rethink your choice. If (like me) your vaginal canal is long, this can mean you'll have to insert your fingers well up high to grab the base of the cup, and this is something to consider.
-The removal process can be kind of awkward. You'll have to press the base of the cup while you pull from one side, and then the other. And you'll have to be relaxed. If you're not calm and relaxed the muscles of your vagina will tense up and it will get more difficult to get the cup out. The good thing is that the cup is made from a totally safe medical silicone, so no worries there (it's not like the awful chemicals they put on tampons). Just wait another 15 or 30 minutes and try again when you're calmer.

All in all, for me it has been a lifesaver, I can only ask myself why on earth didn't I buy this sooner?... I cannot recommend this enough for women and girls who are comfortable with their body and intimacy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Returned item - it cracked within 1 month of purchase!, 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm under the impression that Otterbox decreased its quality standards. It was by far the most protective case brand there ever was, at least for iPhones. And yet it cracked out of the blue... I haven't dropped my phone! Almost 25 pounds for something who didn't even last 1 month... Waste of money, don't buy.

This review is from: I Love You Barney, 10" Plush (Toy)
My baby loves it!! Loves cuddling with it too. The only thing I have to say is the volume is perhaps a little bit too loud, but nothing too serious. My daughter doesn't seem to mind at all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely favourite baby bed sheets!, 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These sheets are awesome!! Waterproof and yet breathable, it's guaranteed that your baby will have a constant body temperature with these, and won't wet the mattress. And they come in such great colours!! And are far more affordable than other brands, such as Hippychick... I have tried Hippychick and couldn't be more disappointed! I'm an absolute Velfont-fan!

The drawings are really cute, too!

Dreambaby Appliance Latch (Pack Of 4, White)
Dreambaby Appliance Latch (Pack Of 4, White)
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally worth it - even if your baby's favorite hobby is to find out how to solve "babyproof puzzles", like mine, 20 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really, really ease to assemble and they have a strong velcro. I use them in drawers, cabinets, fridges - you name it, these just go with everything and without screws and no sweat...

After these are on, you will need two hands to open the appliance: one to detach the velcro and while doing it the other one to open the drawer/cabinet, or else the velcro automatically straps on again. Good thinking huh? Like that, even if your baby figures out how to open the velcro (mine eventually did, after a couple of hours trying) he won't be able to hold the strap with one hand and open the appliance with the other...

Would highly recommend it!
