Lamaze Tug & Play Knot
Lamaze Tug & Play Knot
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 14 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the senond knot I've bought - one for each of my children and they have both loved it. Hours of fun! Only bad point is the colour of the fur on one of the pieces. Brown isn't that great a colour to look at for kids.... but I guess it does hide the muck!

Maisy at the Farm

Edition: Hardcover
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book, but a little old for my one year old, 6 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Maisy at the Farm (Hardcover)
Lovely pictures and story is good. My one year old loves these books, but this one is a little old for him as he wants to pull very hard on the tabs which would break them. Much better for a three year old as the back of the book suggests! Will read the information before buying next time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant. Small and easy to use. Good quality., 25 July 2009
This camcorder is small, easy to use and the quality of the images are really good. The photos that you can take using the camcorder are also good quality. Although the quality of the video and photos taken in the dark are quite grainy.
The camcorder is so easy to use, even my mum can use it! (Sorry mum!) The touch screen makes using the video and playback very simple.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful. Mostly common sense, 25 July 2009
This book was very helpful in getting your baby into a routine and helping the parent to see where they sometimes go wrong without even realising it!
We started on this routine at about 7 weeks (baby is now 12 weeks old) and it takes at least two weeks to get the hang of it (for both yourself and your baby). We were doing this routine even before reading the book, but it helped us to realise that we were going along the right track in terms of a routine of eating, sleep and activities for our little one and gave us some idea of how much of all of these things our baby needed.
As with all self-help books, you need to read it with your own baby in mind. You don't follow the book by the letter, but use it as a routine for your baby's needs and this doesn't go by a timetable!
It was definitely the best choice for us as we don't go along with the 'controlled crying' theory.
If you want your child to be able to get to sleep by themselves, both for daytime naps and at nightime, without leaving them to cry, then this is the book for you.
Our little one started out having to be rocked to sleep either in our arms or in the pram. He now goes to sleep in his cot by himself after 10 minutes of cooing and is sleeping from 8pm to 7am with only one night feed (every now and again), and he has slept through the night with no waking three times so far. This may not sound like a big deal, but he's now three months old and we used to be up two or three times in the night for at least thirty minutes at a time for feeds! It has saved us lots of sleep and our sanity!
On the downside, it is a thick book, but just start where your worse problem is (eating/sleeping) and then go back to the beginning and read the whole book to get the bigger picture.
It might not work for every baby/parent but it has definitely helped us!
