Mummy reviewer series: Comfort Perfume Deluxe 'Lavish Blossom'

I don't know about you but washing clothes is one chore that I don't really look forward to - it always creates so much mess and the process is so long! However, what if there was a product that could make washing a delight?

If, like me, you are swayed by scents then this may be a product for you. Comfort have recently released a range of ultra-concentrated fabric conditioners under its 'Perfume Deluxe' brand. According to comfort, the scents in this range have been crafted by perfume experts.
This week I have used Comfort's new 'Lavish Blossom' scent which includes 'an extraordinary blend of floral and oriental notes, with white flowers, amber and citrus fruits for a seductive and enveloping scent'. I really like the smell of this product - it is subtle, not overpowering and almost reminds me of the scents you would encounter in a spa.

Comfort aim to encourage their consumers to 'indulge in the expertly crafted perfume, inspired by the most sophisticated trends in fine fragrance'.

The packaging is very pretty and looks like a luxurious brand with a dark background which makes the hydrangea flowers, sparkles and drop of perfume on the front of the bottle stand out.

I used the fabric conditioner in my weekly wash. One 870ml bottle can do 58 washes and, as it is ultra-concentrated, a little goes a long way! Comfort recommend that you add the product to your washing machine drawer rather than in the drum and suggest that one 15ml dose will suffice for a 4-5kg load whereas a 32ml dose is better suited to a 6-7kg load.

 I found that the lovely scent filled the kitchen during the wash as the water heated up and also remained after the load had been tumble dried which is always a bonus. So, look out for Comfort's Perfume Deluxe range in a supermarket near you!

One hack I love to use around the home, particularly at this time of year, is simple and really effective. Simply dip a cotton wool ball into your fabric conditioner and lightly wipe the scent over your radiators. Then, when your heating comes on, your home will be filled with a wonderful scent throw.

Similarly, you can use essential oils to the same effect. Alternatively, leave a cotton wool pad, soaked in your favourite home scent, tucked in to the top of your radiator out of sight to fill your home with a stunning smell. This thrifty trick can help you to use what you already have at home in place of purchasing expensive plug in scents!

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 …
