How to store your child’s clothes properly

How to store your child’s clothes properly

Children grow so quickly that often you find the clothes for your little daughter become small for her. However, instead of throwing away the new clothes, you can store them for your younger child. You just need to be careful that you store the clothes properly so that they are not damaged. Here are few guidelines you can follow to preserve you child’s outfits the best way possible.

1. Buy storage boxes for keeping the clothes. Note: heavy plastic boxes are perfect for storing your children’s clothing.

Choose opaque and dark boxes if you are about to keep them in an airy room that receives sunlight. Opaque and dark box will prevent the clothes to fade.

If you plan to store the clothes in basement or attic, choose a transparent box.

2. Wash and dry all the clothes before you store them. If any outfit needs to be dry-cleaned, dry-clean them before storage.

Pampers VS Huggies

Pampers VS Huggies

Now I’m not one for being completely and utterly biased, I’m also not one to slate a product into the ground, However when it comes to the two brands Pampers, and Huggies there is only one that comes out on top. I have been a father now for five weeks, and I have had the pleasure of using both these brands products extensively. Nappies, and baby wipes mostly, and I would like to explain why one beats the other hands down. But I also would like to highlight some of the downsides as well of the upsides to the products that both these brands manufacture.

Ok so firstly I want to start with the winner of the baby product battle, Pampers. I’m going to explain why as a parent, this should always take precedence when making a decision in your local super market.  Let’s start with the Pampers Nappies range, they appear to be generally larger than their Huggies counterpart, they absorb more fluid and generally look more comfortable to wear. I also believe that the material used in Pampers Nappies is also much kinder to babies’ skin, as Huggies nappies gave my son a nappy rash. Huggies nappies appear smaller; they also have a funky smell about them and do not retain liquid very well. When first using Huggies I found that my son would often be soaked through whilst wearing these non absorbent nappies. As for value for money Pampers are generally more expensive than Huggies, I recently found that on Amazon you can buy two packs of Pampers nappies (132) for less than £20, whereas Huggies was around £18 for 160. So really Huggies actually beats Pampers value wise. However if you want quality, endurance and generally nice smelling nappies you’ll want to invest a few extra pounds for Pampers.

Pampers baby wipes beat Huggies baby wipes purely on the basis of ease of access. For those of you that have tried to retrieve a wipe from a pack of Huggies will know that they stick together, and once removed they tend come out in a bulk. Pampers wipes are a lot easier to pull out as they are thinner and not so water heavy. The fragrance from these wipes isn’t as strong as its counterpart and is usually cheaper to buy. However once again Huggies prove to be cheaper to buy, as Amazon, sell Pampers baby wipes, 12 x packs of 56 for £10, whereas Huggies wipes were 12 x packs of 64 for less than £12. So although cheaper to purchase, Huggies simply doesn’t match the high quality and sensitivity of its higher end but more expensive counterpart.

5 baby products I couldnt live without

The top 5 baby products I couldn’t live without

I really wanted to write a quick review on the top 5 baby products that I currently own. Seeing as my son was born just over a week ago, I was hoping to provide some basic advice. Now I must say thanks to some of these products some of my greatest fears have been laid to rest. The bottle steriliser that only requires 90ml of water and 4 minutes in the microwave and the baby monitor that displays the baby’s body temperature, and heart rate. Here are just a few amazing pieces of baby kit that I think all parents should consider investing in.

Ok, so here is one of the most convenient pieces of baby kit that I own. The Tommy Tippee bottles and steriliser is ideal for those who don’t have a great deal of time on their hands. Once all the bottles are clean, you simply pour 90ml of water into the main body, place the lid back on and insert into your microwave for 4 minutes. You should allow an extra minute to allow the steam to escape from the vents which are located in the centre of the lid, before extracting one of the bottles. The inside of the steriliser includes the base and a removable tray which house's four bottle shaped grooves to place the bottles and a further four stantions with grooves for fitting either dummies or the teets. All in all this is a very good product that I rate 10/10. The bottles are durable, and it’s all very easy to clean and to use. I recommend to all.

 

Now this is simply an amazing piece of kit, one of my very good friends bought this as a baby present for me. This is the Angel Care Sound and movement monitor, which also tells you your baby’s heart rate and body temperature. It has the ability to monitor the sound made by your infant and will alarm if it picks up any irregularities. The pad itself should be placed underneath the Childs sheets and mattress on a hard rigid surface. The pad is attached to the nursery unit which the odd looking triangular shaped gadget pictured above. It is here you can set the sensitivity of the pad and the transmission of sound is received. Now, in my bedroom we have the pad and the nursery unit placed at the bottom of the bed and the receiver unit placed at the head. The receiver unit displays temperature, heart rate and volume; this is also where the alarm, should anything go wrong goes off.

There are numerous options and controls that come with owning the Angel care baby monitor. You can control the volumes for both the alarm and the noise receiver. You can control the sensitivity of the pad, that your baby actually lays on and you can set when the alarm actually goes off. For instance, should your bedrooms temperature exceed or fall beneath a certain number, you can set it so that it alarms when this happens. The pad also alarms when no movement is detected, as all babies move constantly all night.
