    Best Ikea Buys for Kids

    Ikea is packed full of awesome products for the home. And their selection for baby or toddler products never disappoints either. Today I’m sharing the best Ikea buys for kids. We have tried lots of their products and these are our favourite purchases. We’re covering cribs, feeding products, tableware, toys and random accessories. ANTILOP High-chair Everyone has heard of this high-chair or at least seen it in restaurants. It’s an amazing one and super inexpensive. We used it for about 18 months and it was so durable. The only reason we stopped using it is because my toddler started refusing to sit in it and wanted to sit at the…

    Fall Toddler Capsule Wardrobe | +FREE CHECKLIST | H&M Minimalist Baby Boy Wardrobe

Autumn is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited, especially when all the cute baby sweaters and tiny jackets start to make an appearance in stores.

    Visiting the Natural History Museum of London with a Toddler | 6 Tips

    London has so many amazing things to offer for everyone, kids included. One of the things we braved doing this past weekend was visiting the Natural History Museum of London with a toddler. I always heard of people visiting museums with toddlers and the thought of it kinda scared me at first to be honest. I thought it would be overwhelming and not very enjoyable with an energetic toddler. Boy, was I wrong! It was an incredible experience both for us, and for Victor (our almost 2 year old). I cannot wait to take him as he grows too, so that we can take our time and read all the…

    A Day in Richmond Park with a Toddler | London

    Last weekend we visited Richmond Park in London for the first time. We were in awe. It is so beautiful that I just had to capture some moments and share them here with you. Of course, along with our experience walking through Richmond Park with a toddler. The entrance has a small playground made mostly of wood, which is so cute. Victor had a quick go on the slide and then we went on our little hike. We walked towards the Isabella Plantation. It is stunning. So lush and green everywhere you look. There are some ponds inside the plantation and I hear it’s even more spectacular during spring when…

    9 Tips for Flying with a Toddler for the First Time

    Flying with little ones can seem daunting at times, but it can actually be a decent time if you’re prepared in advance. Today we’re covering 9 tips for flying with a toddler for the first time. A few weeks ago we went on a flight with our toddler for the first time. Needless to say, all the typical thoughts and emotions were there. Will he sleep on the plane? Will he be uncomfortable at take off? Will he make it through the entire flight without crying? Am I bringing enough snacks?  I was a bit stressed about how it would go, but he surprised me and it went so much…

    Toddler Boy Capsule Wardrobe | +FREE CHECKLIST | Minimalist Baby Wardrobe

      I recently had to re-do my toddler’s wardrobe, so I decided to share the process with you. Here are a few tips I followed in deciding what pieces we needed. I hope you find this helpful if you’re looking to create a toddler boy capsule wardrobe. My toddler is soon turning 18 months old and this is about the time when they also change size in clothing. I could definitely tell that Victor is not really fitting well in the previous size, so I had to get a series of new clothes for him in the next size up. And that is 18-24 months or 1 1/2 – 2…
