Mum Hacks

This is an ongoing page that I will keep up to date with my latest Mum hacks I discover along the way.


IMG_2499As the summer has appeared again and picnics and general eating outside is on the cards here is a good mum hack. Peel your banana the other way so your child can hold the end like a handle and eat all of it that’s if your child doesn’t decide they don’t like bananas every time you open one, EVERYTIME it’s the one bite wonder ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‰.

When changing your baby’s nappy don’t open the nappy bin until the last possible moment before you leave the nappy changing room, they stink pretty bad. ๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿคข.

PRODUCT INFORMATION on the maxi cosi baby seat, so after having this car seat for over 4 years and it’s been used for 2 children and soon to be made redundant, my husband said to me “did you know the handle goes all the way back so it doesn’t rock back?” My answer “no”. For 4 years I’ve been struggling with a rocking seat ๐Ÿ™„ ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.So I wanted to share so no one else will have the same conversation in a couple of years time ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ‘


How to enjoy your ‘me’ time in the bath with a lovely drink of gin and rose lemonade or whatever your tipple is but use your children’s handy bath toys as the perfect drinks holder. .

So to me and you this looks like an empty shampoo bottle but to my children this is possibly the best bath toy (apart from the drinks holder in the bath see previous Mum hack) that they will happily fill up and pour out until they have wrinkly toes ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘.


โšก๏ธโšก๏ธMUM HACK โšก๏ธโšก๏ธ The โ€œtrug of dreamsโ€. It works by leaving a trug of water by your back door with a towel. Once your child has COVERED themselves in sand, mud and general crap from the garden get them to take a dip in โญ๏ธThe trug of dreams โญ๏ธ(no encouragement needed, itโ€™s water so they will jump straight in) and then they are clean to enter the ๐Ÿ , your walls will be saved until they start walking around with pens in their hands ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.



๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅMUM HACK๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ So obviously some of you are pros at hiding โ€œthe presentsโ€ but itโ€™s the first year we have an abled bodied child that could going looking for presents whilst pretending to tidy up (as if that ever happens!). So Iโ€™m hiding presents in suitcases he will never look there……hopefully ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘..



After a mumโ€™s meet up at our local baby cafe today where I finally met the wonderful Silke who runs Nourish to thrive loads of great tips on keeping you sane as a parent) I was explaining the aged old problem of making it home without Grace falling asleep before lunchtime/nap time and she mentioned that she grabs a punnet of blueberries from the fruit and veg stall in town and her little one munchies them all the way home and stays awake. After a full on tantrum as Grace โ€œthoughtโ€ she saw โ€œMumโ€ AKA Grandma (my Mum) I decided to I would give it a try and yes it worked and here is Grace enjoying those blueberries and AWAKEย ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ™Œย Nourish to Thrive
