 BIG Savings On Sainsbury's Nappies: Jumbo Packs £5, from 6p per nappy!

We have another great reason for you to pop to Sainsbury's - they are clearing out some of their own brand nappies at fantastic prices, and the good news is that this is online and in stores.

The big Jumbo Packs of Sainsbury's Dry Fit Nappies are down to £5 per pack, making the price as low as 6p per nappy! The Eco Nappies are also massively reduced and are now as little as 7p per nappy. Here are the ones that are showing as reduced online:

  • Sainsbury's Little Ones Dry Fit Nappies, Jumbo Packs  - now £5
  • Sainsbury's Little Ones Dry Fit Nappies, Midi/Maxi Packs - now £4.50
  • Sainsbury's Little Ones Eco Nappies - now £1.75 / £2.25

All of these packs work out at less than 10p per nappy, with prices from as little as 6p per nappy with those Jumbo packs! They have been found in stores, although some have only found empty shelves where these nappies once were... I would think people are grabbing all they can at these prices!

If you shop online at Sainsbury's then you can place an order for these with your groceries, but whether your local store will have any stock I can't say.

Either way these are definitely worth stocking up on, as anything better than 10p per nappy is a cracking price! Those shelves will be cleared quickly though so don't hang about! Good luck!

Prompt Set Up 8 Foot Pool Only £19.99 @ Home Bargains RRP £39.99

If you're looking to treat the kids to a new paddling pool this Summer then look no further than this one. This pool can be set up in 10 minutes and is big enough for the family! Even better, it is only £19.99 at Home Bargains instead of the RRP of £39.99!

According to the website, this pool is made from a very durable material and has easy drainage and convenient storage. I think at this price this pool is well worth a try, especially with the current hot weather we are having.

If you are looking for a slightly bigger pool there is also a larger 10 foot version at £39.99 instead of the RRP of £59.99. The only downside to this, is it is currently unavailable online, however this may still be available in local stores. It may be worth a ring round to check before you go into store.

The 8 foot pool is available to click and collect for free in you local Home Bargains store but can also be delivered as a medium parcel size for £3.49.

Up to 75% Off PLUS An Extra 20% Off @ Footasylum

The Footasylum sale was already a cracker with most sale items half price, and some with even bigger price reductions. Now the sale is even better as there is a further 20% off all sale prices! There's no code to enter for this extra discount, it is automatically applied at the checkout.

If you are looking for kids shoes then there are discounts on loads of big brands names like Vans, Adidas, Converse, Nike, and loads more. Did you see the cute blue converse that Prince George was wearing* with the gran the other day? They will set you back £11.99 a pair. Not a bad price for dressing like a royal is it?

The prices are pretty impressive for all the sale shoes to be honest, and I am finally going to get myself some footwear that hasn't come from a supermarket. And my boys deserve the same shoes as the royal family, and so do yours. ;)

Home delivery charges are from £3.95, or click and collect is free.

New Baby Gifts With All Profits To Charity @ From Babies With Love

New Baby Gifts With All Profits To Charity @ From Babies With Love

If you are looking for a New Baby Gift, or  Baby Shower Gift then there is a website that specialises in these gifts that's a bit special. From Babies With Love is an online store with a difference, in that all the profits from the baby clothes and gifts they sell go to helping abandoned babies from around the world.

The clothing and gifts are gorgeous, and you know that your gift is also helping babies in need. The clothes and gifts are made from organic cottons and come in a free gift bag with a greetings card to make the gift extra special. The large muslins are a good price, and I would be tempted to give one of those or the beautiful baby blankets as a gift, purely because they will get a lot more use than the clothing on a growing baby.

If you're buying something from this company you might not want to tell a hormonal new mother where the money has gone straight away though, as that's the kind of thing that can release floods of tears.

On the From Babies With Love website you can see the babies who are being helped and get more information on the charities that are working with them. These are a lovely idea for a gift for a newborn, and one that is bound to be appreciated by new parents.

Scuttlebug Ride-Ons £14.50 with code @ Asda George

Scuttlebug Ride-Ons £14.50 with code @ Asda George

I'm a big fan of the Scuttlebug Ride-On toys, purely because my toddler loves his, and right now you can get then for £14.50 at Asda George online. The yellow one and the white one are both listed as £29, but when you enter the promotional code TOY50 at the basket you get 50% off making them a bargain price.

As well as being super comfy and easy to manoeuvre for toddlers, Scuttlebugs are cleverly designed to fold down for storage. I'm also not sure how they manage to make something so sturdy so light as well. They are great for toddlers to practice steering and balancing before they move on to learning to peddle, and can be used both indoors and out.

My son is just two and uses his every single day, carrying it from room to room and whizzing round on it. He does have short legs (got those from me) so younger children than him would easily be able to use this as a foot to floor ride on, and the description says it is suitable from 12 months of age.

You can use the free click and collect from Asda stores or home delivery charges are from £2.95.  Remember the TOY50 code to get the lower price!

Up to 80% Off Women's, Men's & Home @ Urban Outfitters

Up to 80% Off Women's, Men's & Home @ Urban Outfitters

The Summer Sales are popping up all over the place and one that I would have missed if a colleague hadn't told me is Urban Outfitters. Their clothes for women stop at a size 14 which probably explains why I hadn't shopped there, but the clothes are so nice that I really wish they did fit me! And the prices are great now that they have up to 80% off.

Accessories start at £1, underwear at £3, and clothing starts from just £5! The sale banner says that there are reductions of up to 75%, but madly there are reductions even bigger than that! If clothing is reduced from £42 to £5 then that's more than 80% off if my maths is right?

There are also big reductions in the Men's Wear and Home sections, so those are both well worth a look as well. Delivery charges will add a further £3.99, but the Urban Outfitters website is also offering free delivery and a 10% student discount when you subscribe to their emails.

Playmobil Native American Camp £7.50 (using code) @ Asda George

Asda George have added more toys to their special offer where you can get 50% off with the code TOY50, and there are some cracking buys in there this time. One of the best bargains is this Playmobil Native American Camp set, normally selling for around £20 it works out at just £7.50 at Asda with the code!

It's a fairly large set, with a teepee, canoe, totem pole, three figures and a horse as well as accessories, so yo can see why this would normally be £20 or more. Asda was already the cheapest place to buy this so to get the set for £7.50 is crazy.

At the moment there are plenty in stock, but I can't see being the case for long once word gets out. You can click and collect for free at Asda stores, or home delivery will add another £2.95 to your order, still making the Playmobil Native American Camp half the price of anywhere else!

Remember to use the TOY50 code to get the reduced price!

Bearhug Storage Toddler Bed Frame £69.99 @ Argos

by Nada in Deals on 2 July, 2015 at 11:58 am

Bearhug Storage Toddler Bed Frame £69.99 @ ArgosI cannot wait to get a little bed like this for my wee man. We always seem to see deals on character beds but rarely one with such wide appeal as this one. The Bearhug Storage Toddler Bed Frame was £119.99 down to £69.99. It's a bargain and it's really, really cute.

The Bearhug Storage Toddler Bed Frame is a friendly looking place for your little one to sleep. It have two large fabric storage drawers underneath for little toys or books. You could even keep pyjamas in there.

It's nice and low to the ground so it's easy to get in and out of. Plus, should your tot tumble out of bed it's not from a great height. It's made from MDF and they describe it as sturdy.

This cutesy bed requires self-assembly but Argos say it only requires one person to build it, so I am doubtful that it is complicated.

This bed certainly ticks all the boxes for me.... it's cheap, cute, appealing and fit for purpose.

You can Reserve and Collect the Bearbug Storage Toddler Bed Frame for FREE from Argos. It doesn't look like it's available for home delivery but enter your postcode and see.

Actress And New Mum Jacqueline Jossa Opens Up About Post-Pregnancy Hair Loss

Actress And New Mum Jacqueline Jossa Opens Up About Post-Pregnancy Hair Loss

Actress and new mum Jacqueline Jossa is a our fave new celeb parent, after opening up about her experience of post-pregnancy hair loss.

Jacqueline, who gave birth to a little girl named Ella in February, took to her Instagram account where she posted a picture of herself along with the caption:

"For all the new baby mummy's that might be losing some hair after birth, I'm right here with you, I think it's starting to slowly grow back, so it's all good guys!! Embrace it, and let's enjoy being with our beautiful little cuties!!"

Her post garnered 250 comments, with loads of other mums sharing their experiences of hair loss after having a baby. Some shared their recommendations for treatments and antidotes to the troubling condition.

Kudos to Jacqueline for talking about something which affects so many new mums, but which few of us are comfortable discussing.

During pregnancy, increased levels of the hormone oestrogen account for the thicker, fuller-looking hair which many women experience, but after giving birth those hormone levels drop back to normal, causing hair loss and shedding. It should settle down within 6-12 months but if not, visit your GP or talk to your health visitor.

Did you experience hair loss after giving birth? We'd love to hear your experiences and feelings on the matter over on our Facebook page.

Toys R Us have released a print off voucher to use in it's store between 2nd July to 5th July. It entitles you to £10 off of a £50 spend. Toys R Us aren't often the cheapest retailer around so do your research first.

The terms and conditions stipulated by Toys R Us are:

Limit one coupon per transaction. Not to be used in conjunction with any other offer. Cannot be exchanged for cash. Valid for in-store use at Toys 'R' Us stores in the UK only.

Valid from Thursday 2nd July until Sunday 5th July 2015 inclusive.

If I was spending £100 plus then I would print off two and get your other half to put £50 of it through behind you. However, you could just do two separate sales yourself if the cashier allows.

LOTS Of New Minion Food Goodies @ Asda

Asda are pretty good with bucking trends and they are most certainly on the ball with the Minion craze. Sure it makes them £££'s but it makes us customers happy too. I get so excited when I find something new, it's a novelty on what is normally a boring shopping trip. There are some new Minion bits at Asda in the groceries department and some not so new, but we love them all. We have made a little list of what to keep your eye out for next time you are food shopping.

Here's a list of all the edible Minions goodies you can get your hand on at Asda:

Oftsed Chief Says Headteachers Should Fine 'Feckless' Parents

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Misc on 2 July, 2015 at 10:40 am

Oftsed Chief Says Headteachers Should Fine 'Feckless' Parents

If you're a BBC Radio London fan, you'll have heard us chatting to Nikki Bedi, sitting in for Vaness Feltz, on this morning's show. The topic? Comments made by Ofsted director Michael Wilshaw to the effect that schools should have the power to punish what he called 'feckless' parents - those who fail to turn up to parent / teacher meetings or who don't provide books or support their child's learning.

The Daily Mail covered his comments like this:

"Head teachers should be able to fine ‘feckless’ parents for refusing to come to parents’ evening or failing to supply books, according to the Chief Inspector of Schools."

"Sir Michael Wilshaw said he would ‘love to have the legal backing’ to allow teachers to punish parents who were ‘not supporting’ their childrens’ schools."

Sir Michael Wilshaw also said he had sent 'nasty letters' to parents when he was a head teacher, and had even accused people of being bad parents.

As I said on-air, I think his comments are unhelpful, and that the whole notion of fining parents is unworkable anyway. Are head teachers going to carry out inspections of children's homes in order to establish whether there are enough books on the property?

Following on from the Department of Education ruling that teachers have the right to 'confiscate, keep or destroy' unhealthy items of food from chilren's lunch boxes, I think we're in danger of finding ourselves in a war between parents and teachers.

What's more, fining parents totally overlooks the socio-economic reality that must be at play in many homes where parents aren't buying books, showing up for school meetings, or supporting their child's learning.

What's your view on this story? Should head teachers have the right to fine parents who are deemed not to be supportive of their child's learning?

Baby Born Dolls Stroller £5.99 @ Argos

Baby Born Dolls Stroller £5.99 @ Argos

Has your little one got lots of baby dolls but nothing to put them in? Head on over to Argos and get the Baby Born Dolls Stroller for only £5.99. It's reduced from £10.99, so this is a bargain. It's nowhere near this cheap elsewhere so I'd grab it as quick as you can. It has a FIVE star rating on the Argos site so I don't think you can go wrong with this.

The Baby Born Dolls Stroller has three great reviews and they suggest the that the quality is good. It's a well known doll brand so I think for under £6 it's a steal. It's even cheap enough to buy as a party present.

It's very basic and doesn't come with any fancy, frilly bits but who cares? Your little one just wants to stick their dolly in it and pretend to be mummy or daddy. It does fold so can be stored neatly or chucked in the car boot. It also has a harness so dolly doesn't fall out.

You can Reserve and Collect the Baby Born Dolls Stroller for FREE from an Argos near you or pay £3.95 to have it delivered to your front door.

TP Spiro Bouncer £29.99 Delivered @ Amazon

TP Spiro Bouncer £29.99 Delivered @ Amazon

A see saw that bounces... that's a child's idea surely. It's genius! The TP Spiro Bouncer is the see saw to buy, for sure. Not only does the bouncing feature appeal but it can be used indoors too and won't damage the floors. Smyths Toys Store had reduced these to £29.99 but sold out VERY fast. Amazon have price matched them and still have stock. These sell for £40 plus elsewhere so this is a true bargain.

The TP Spiro Bouncer not only bounces up and down like a see saw but it can rotate 360 degrees. The kids will have so much fun on this. Each seat can take a maximum weight of 25 kg and I wish they would make one for adults.

The base can be filled with the likes of sand if you would like it a bit more stable. I can see the kids getting excited so that's maybe best.

This modern day see saw has a 4.3 star rating on Amazon, which suggests to me that it is a good buy. It is aimed at younger children but it's not recommended for little ones under three.

Can't Sleep Because Of The Heat? Here's How...

Can't Sleep Because Of The Heat? Here's How...

We've already shared our sun-safety tips for keeping babies and children safe and cool in a heatwave, but how are you bearing up in this heat? I know we're not supposed to complain about the fact that the sun is finally shining at long last, but even the true sun lovers amongst us can admit that there's a difference between a lovely spot of sunshine, and sweltering in Saharan temperatures.

The UK Met Office has warned that this summer is set to be the warmest in 135 years,  but experts warn that sleeping in temperatures above 24°C increases the likelihood of waking up during the night or only have a light, fragmented sleep, preventing you from getting the restful night you need. Not fun at all if you're getting up at the crack of dawn to take care of similarly sleep-deprived babies or kids who are also suffering in the heat.

But fear not - help is at hand. Silentnight sleep expert Dr Nerina Ramlakhan offered us five top tips for beating the heat and getting a decent night's kip despite the soaring temperatures.

Chad Valley Pop Up Bowling Alley £4.99 @ Argos

Chad Valley Pop Up Bowling Alley £4.99 @ Argos

Someone once told me that bowling is great for improving hand-eye coordination. I played it a lot as a child and I still have a rubbish aim. Ten pin bowling is great fun and the kids just love it. Argos have reduced the price of the Chad Valley Pop Up Bowling Alley from £9.99 to £4.99. It's ideal for those nice days in the garden.

The Chad Valley Pop Up Bowling Alley consists of the alley sheet, six plastic skittles and a bowling ball. This can be taken anywhere to play, the park, granny's house. It's not bulky or heavy so stick it in it's box and go.

The good thing about this is that you are not limited to only playing with it in the garden, which means on those dreary days you can set it up in the living room.

It'll inject some competitiveness amongst the kids too, which in my eyes is a good thing.

You can Reserve and Collect the Chad Valley Pop Up Bowling Alley for FREE from an Argos store near you or pay £3.95 to have it delivered to your front door.
