Tommee Tippee Closer To Nature Manual Breast Pump £10.99 Delivered @ Amazon

I used a breast pump with all three of my children. If I was planning a trip out with the kids then it was felt handier to have a bottle of breast milk to hand, rather than feeling stressed whilst trying to put baby to breast whilst others are running amok. Whatever your reasons for using a breast pump, the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Manual Breast Pump is only £10.99 at Amazon. That price includes FREE Delivery.

The Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Manual Breast Pump comes with an Easi-vent 150 ml bottle that the pump will decant milk straight into, a Milk Storage Pot, six Disposable Breast Pads and a Microwave Steriliser Pot. That's a lot for just £10.99. I am sure you will agree.

It breaks into three pieces so it's easy enough to clean. The suction cup with it's "special massage ripples" will help stimulate milk flow. If you have never used one before, it's really easy.

If I remember correctly, you can fit any Tommee Tippee Bottles on to the pump attachment too, which is really handy.

Tommee Tippee Closer To Nature Colour My World Feeding Bottles 6 Pack £9.81 @ Amazon/Asda George

Baby bottles are a personal preference item. I highly rate these Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Colour My World Feeding Bottles but some folk might prefer Avent or Dr Browns. Those latter two brands are way more expensive than TT. You can pick up these Tommee Tippee Bottles real cheap if you wait for those supermarket Baby & Toddler Events. Just now you can get a six pack for just £9.81 from Asda George and from Amazon.

Having used Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Colour My World Feeding Bottles with all three of my sons, I have never found fault with them. Now's the time to buy them as £9.81 for six of them is a great price.

Warehouse Liquidation Event: Children's Items From 49p @ Sports Direct

Sports Direct are having another Warehouse Liquidation Event on. What does that even mean? Who cares....there's heaps of cheap stuff. Summer clothes can be got, next school years bags/gym kit and whatever else you are needing. Seriously items start at just 49p and even if some of the RRP's are laughable, there's still plenty of bargains.

I don't even know where to start, there's so much I want to tell you about. Think of the beach, if like me your kids are petrified of jellyfish and other yukky things in the sea then grab a pair of these Hot Tuna Splasher Shoes in pink* or blue*. It'll avoid drama and cost you 79p/99p only.

These Girls' Disney Tops* have to be my top pick. With a choice of five designs: Minnie Mouse, The Aristocats, Sofia the First, Doc McStuffins and Jake and the Never Land Pirates. Each one is only £2.49.

10 Children's Books For £10 with Free Delivery @ The Works

by Lisa Hayes in Deals on 20 April, 2015 at 8:35 pm

10 Children's Books For £10 with Free Delivery @ The Works

The Works have a regular offer of 10 Children's Books For £10, but when they have a free delivery promotion running as well it makes it even better value. For today and tomorrow you can get free delivery on any purchase by using the code FREEDEL10 at the checkout. If your order is over £20 you also get up to 10% off as well.

There are more than 300 books to choose from in the 10 for £10 offer, and there have been loads of new ones added since the last time I looked.  New additions include CBeebies favourites like Mike The Knight, Raa Raa The Noisy Lion* and The Octonauts*. I'm really suprised to see Guess How Much I Love You* in this offer as it's such a huge best seller, but I'm not complaining!

Some of these are sticker and activity books rather than fiction, and £1 each is great value for these. My toddler has just discovered sticker books and is going through them very quickly, so I'll stock up on a few of those.

I haven't had time to look through more than the first few pages, and already I have seen enough to make up a £10 order to put away for the next Half Term holiday. My boys both have birthdays coming up as well, come to think of it!

Remember to use the code FREEDEL10 to get your free delivery!

Junior Bedding Bundles (Duvet, Pillow, & Duver Cover Set) was £22, now £17 @ Tesco Direct

Junior Bedding Bundles (Duvet, Pillow, & Duver Cover Set) was £22, now £17 @ Tesco Direct

If you are going to be moving your toddler from a cot to a cot bed or junior bed any time soon then this is a really good price for a starter bedding bundle. For £17 at Tesco Direct you get a duvet, a pillow and a duvet cover and matching pillow case! This is £5 off the usual price of £22, and is a promotion as part of their Baby and Toddler Event, so it's for a limited time only.

There are quite a few designs to choose from, so you should be able to pick up one to please most toddlers. Here are the ones the have in stock right now:

These are made to fit a cot bed / toddler bed with a 70cm x 140cm mattress, so they are smaller than a normal single bed. The duvet you get with the set is a 3.5 tog, which is good for milder months, but you will probably want to get a higher tog for winter or pop an extra blanket on the top.

These sets don't often go below £20, and I remember paying that for my eldest son's set 4 years ago, so I think this is a great price. If you are going to need one in the next few months it's worth picking one up now at this price and putting it away.

You can click and collect for free from Tesco stores, or home delivery charges are from £3.

Multicoloured Painted Wooden 3D Letters £1.25 each with Free Delivery @ JoJo Maman Bebe

These beautifully detailed painted wooden letters have 3D extras added to them that make them that little bit more special than just plain coloured ones, and they are only £1.25 each with free delivery from JoJo Maman Bebe.

They are in the Christening and New Baby Gift section of the website, and I think they would make a gorgeous gift for either occasion, or just to brighten up your child's room.

Magical Fairy Door £16.95 Was £19.99 @ Prezzy Box

Magical Fairy Door £16.95 Was £19.99 @ Prezzy Box

Words cannot convey how much I love this magical fairy door, and right now it's down in price from £19.99 to £16.95 at Prezzybox.

Can you IMAGINE the wonder on your little ones' faces when they clap eyes on this? It's basically a tiny handcrafted door (12cm in height) complete with a set of stepping stones, which you can affix either indoors or out to help persuade your little ones to believe.

Best of all, it even comes with a teeny weeny bottle which contains the key to the door. Of course it does. Pure genius. Also included is a secret code to download your Fairy Lease agreement, and you can also access a free Magical Matters app.

It's basically fairytastic and I quite literally have nothing more to say because I'm off to snap one up for my little girl, and one for the kids of my other fairy-loving friends.

Standard UK delivery costs £3.95 from Prezzybox.

Australian Government: No Benefits If You You Don't Vaccinate Your Kids

by Heidi Scrimgeour in Misc on 20 April, 2015 at 11:19 am

 Australian Government: No Benefits If You You Don't Vaccinate Your Kids

The Australian government has announced new plans to withdraw welfare benefits from families who do not have their children vaccinated.

The Daily Mail reports:

Under the tough new 'no jab, no pay' laws, Social Services Minister Scott Morrison has announced on Sunday that parents will no longer be able to access childcare benefits simply by signing a form that says they object to immunisation based on 'personal, philosophical or religious' reasons. 

The paper reports that this will amount to families losing up to $15,000 a year for every child once the changes come into effect next year, although Morrison stated that the exemption is "no longer current or necessary" as religious groups are not advising members to avoid vaccinating children.

Currently, parents are entitled to choose not to have their children vaccinated against childhood diseases, but can still claim a childcare rebate, childcare benefit and a family tax benefit.

The move is presumably designed to ensure that parents have their children vaccinated, although critics say it won't necessarily increase take-up of jabs.

Current figures suggest that around 39,000 children under the age of seven are not vaccinated in Australia. Approximately 450 children aged five and under die from measles every day, according to the BBC.

What's your view on the Australian government's plan, and could you ever see the UK following suit? If you choose not to vaccinate your child but would stand to lose child benefit unless you did so, would it change your mind on the matter?

We'd love to hear your thoughts.

Sportspower 10ft Galvanised Trampoline And Enclosure With Flash Zone £99 @ Asda George

by Nada in Deals on 20 April, 2015 at 11:02 am

Sportspower 10ft Galvanised Trampoline And Enclosure With Flash Zone £99 @ Asda George

Trampolines are SO MUCH FUN! We bought this Sportspower 10ft Galvanised Trampoline and Enclosure with Flash Zone last week. They are only £99 from Asda George or instore at Asda. Seriously, this trampoline is my new obsession. We supposedly bought it for the kids, but they can't get near it for me. The best bit is the FLASH ZONE.

The Sportspower 10ft Galvanised Trampoline and Enclosure with Flash Zone is so cool. For the £99, you get your trampoline and then you get the flash zone with it. This came in a separate little box. Its a pack that fits on the trampoline, and every time you jump into the target (the centre) it flashes.

It's such a great feature and really stands out from just your bog standard, non flashy trampolines. Made from Galvanised Premium Steel Frame offers Rust Free Protection and durability. The safety net is provided to prevent any serious injuries.

It does feel very sturdy to me, and we had all four of our children on it at the weekend without a hitch.  It takes two people to build it and it took us an hour and a half.

You can have it delivered for just £2.95. Collect in store is unavailable but your local Asda might sell them anyway.

George the Pig T-Shirt* only £2.95, My Little Pony Top* just £2.95, Jake and the Never Land Pirates* only £1.95 (unbelievable bargain) and JCB Fastest Digger Pyjamas* just £1.95.

Great Gizmos Fire Engine Speedster Ride On £51 Delivered @ Amazon Seller: Toypost

by Nada in Deals on 20 April, 2015 at 9:25 am

Great Gizmos Fire Engine Speedster Ride On £51 Delivered @ Amazon Seller: Toypost

The Great Gizmos Fire Engine Speedster Ride On is seriously one of the coolest kiddies toys I have ever seen. Look at it! Talk about awesome. My friend asked me to keep an eye out for her son for anything to do with Fire Engines and I came across this beauty. I honestly expected it to be over £100 but it's not. Buy it from Amazon Seller: Toypost and you can get it for just £51 with FREE delivery included. To get it at this price just look to the right hand side once you click the link below.

What really caught my eye with the Great Gizmos Fire Engine Speedster Ride On is that it is made from steel. This has such a classic look to it, that I think most people will love it. It even has a real working bell and a wooden ladder detail to the back.

It has a four and a half star rating on Amazon and the reviews suggest that this is a well put together toy that is a hit with all children that have played with it.

This ride on is aimed at children aged one to three years old and I must admit the fact that it's steel would put me off buying it for a one year old, had I not read the reviews.
