Mummy reviewer series: Popbook photo books

I've always loved photo books since they became a popular and higher quality alternative to traditional photo albums. I purchased one for our wedding and also created one full of our honeymoon photos. I love looking back at the memories and reminiscing over the moments shared.

Previously, I've created standard sized photobooks using Photobox via desktop so I've been interested to try different companies which use mobile sites and apps instead.

I was recently asked if I would like to review a POPBOOK photobook so I leapt at the chance!

POPBOOK photobooks are small sized photobooks available in either 10cm x 10cm at a cost of £5.99 or 13cm x 13cm at a cost of £6.99 which can be created quickly and simply using the dedicated POPBOOK app available on Apple iOS or Android. What's more, delivery is free!

By selecting 21 digital pictures stored on your smartphone or social media accounts, the POPBOOK app allows you to easily edit your images to include filters, borders and text.

I found the app really easy to navigate and I was quickly able to choose between and apply the desired filters, border and text options. The only thing I found difficult was choosing just 21 photos!

My POPBOOK was delivered within 5-7 days and I have been really impressed with the quality of the product. The pages are printed on their award-winning photographic paper and you can share your digital POPBOOK online so family and friends can order one too!

The POPBOOK is small enough to fit through the letterbox, easy to pop in your handbag to share with family and friends and it is also perfectly shaped for storing in your child's memory box.

For more information about POPBOOK photobooks you can visit their website or follow their dedicated Instagram account.

Normalise breastfeeding: Collab with Stephydraws

As a new Mum you are overwhelmed by a myriad of emotions; Love is by far the biggest one of all. However, feeling vulnerable is also a strong concern for many women and, more often than not, new Mum's are in need of support rather than advice.

In Gloucestershire we are lucky to have access to a fantastic charity which supports many women, including their wider family members, during pregnancy and in particular throughout motherhood.

However you choose to feed your baby, the Gloucestershire Breastfeeding Supporters' Network (GBSN) is there to listen to you, empower your decisions, share information, suggest options and, most importantly, make you a cup of tea!

I recently completed my Peer Supporter Training which was entirely funded by GBSN. My voluntary role as a Peer Supporter for GBSN enables me to support new mothers to help them to feel empowered and supported to make their own decisions in aid of their own breastfeeding journey.

Essential equipment when weaning your baby

Weaning can be worrisome. Like many baby related products, companies use this stage of a baby's life to encourage parents to spend unnecessarily. In a bid to be transparent and help other parents through this tricky time, I've compiled my list of essential equipment that I've found to be useful on our weaning journey so far.

Baby-led weaning or puree?
Before I begin, I just want to say that I feel very strongly that this is a personal choice. Whether you choose to follow baby-led weaning, go down the puree route or do a bit of both it is important that you do what you feel is right for you and your baby.Much like the bottle or breast debate that Mum's find themselves unnecessarily embroiled in, once your baby turns 6 months you will be given all kinds of 'advice'. All that matters is that your baby is fed, happy and healthy.

Plastic bibs
As I have mentioned before, I have found plastic bibs to be really useful during weaning. They are wipe clean, foldable and have…

Thrifty, nifty weaning hacks: 2 weeks in

Thrifty Bubba and I are two weeks into our weaning journey so I wanted to share 8 weaning hacks that I've found useful so far. I have more weaning posts in the pipeline so, if you haven't already, please hit the subscribe button to stay in touch.

1. Don't feel rushed.
As a first time Mummy I definitely felt like I started our weaning journey before I was ready let alone baby! You won't be the first parent to feel like you're forcing your baby to eat when they just aren't ready. If they will only take a couple of mouthfuls before becoming fussy, don't worry. Every new food is a taste adventure for them and when they come to try it again it will feel more familiar. Just like their milk feeds, baby will know if you are feeling stressed and will respond accordingly. Come back to it later.

2. There is no right or wrong.
You know your baby best. If they are interested in you eating at mealtimes, introduce food to them while you're eating too. If it's …
