A Big Year for Sebastian!!


It is a fact that babies develop fast, but people also forget that the toddler years are pretty full on with changes too. At the beginning of the year Sebastian wasn’t talking and had been referred to have his hearing tested and speech therapy, he was still in nappies and showed no interest in potty training and had just started pre-school. Fast forward a year and what a difference. My non-talker doesn’t stop talking now that he has the confidence… Continue Reading “A Big Year for Sebastian!!”

#Win a Potty Training Pack from Huggies

I think having Lightening McQueen pants really helped… Continue Reading “Potty Training 6 Weeks In!”

Potty Training – Month One!

Huggies Pull-Ups

The thought of potty training Sebby filled me with dread as its my least favourite parenting activity. We first introduced the potty back in the Easter holiday’s which was met with tantrums, screaming and a stubborn refusal to go anywhere near it so he obviously was not ready. Fast forward to just before his third birthday and it was a different story. I chose a week where the weather forecast was frankly horrendous so staying at home would not be… Continue Reading “Potty Training – Month One!”
