Moses Basket

Yes, a crib is essential, but for those very early weeks when you first bring your little darling home, you need to consider the joys of a Moses basket. These smaller, more compact, and lighter mobile cribs mean that you can have your little one lying next to you wherever you are in the home. Because these baskets are so light, your baby can enjoy a gentle rocking motion as you try and coax them to sleep. You can even detach the crib section to carry outside. A Moses basket is ideal as you can enjoy your newborn sleeping at the end of your bed at least for the first few weeks of their lives. This deepens your bond and means that you can hear every movement and cry when they are first getting used to their sleep pattern.


A great stroller will double up as an entire travel system for your little cherub. Head to a site like For Your Little One and explore the wide variety of strollers and travel systems on offer. Many double up to create a pushchair and a car seat. Their locking in systems means that the jigsaw of a travel unit that you buy will be safe, secure, and all-in-one. This can save you carrying around bulkier items when this isn’t needed. Hauck has released to the market some incredible trio sets that will give you the luxury of having a stroller, crib, and car seat all in one compact entity. Stressless travel is crucial to make your life as a first time mom just that little bit easier.

While you might be busy thinking about specific items that your little one needs, it pays to consider the sort of food that your child may eat. If you leave food prep to when your little one is here, you may find yourself overwhelmed. Instead, you need to get cooking while you are in the nesting stage. You might want to cook up some hearty organic grub to give your little darling the best start in life. Or perhaps you want to buy in your little one’s food. This is okay. Don’t put too much pressure on yourself to be the ultimate earth mother and consider the quality time you can spend with your baby as of utmost importance. As long as your newborn is having formula or milk for the first few months, they will be receiving their nutrition before you move them onto proper food.

Follow this simple guide and you can consider these three awesome essentials for your newborn baby.

Review – PoxClin Cool Mousse for Chickenpox

*Affiliate link.

I mentioned in my last parenting post that my twins had chickenpox in the last few days of the school term. It was horrible but thankfully they have recovered fully. We used a couple of products to deal with the spots and keep them comfy. One of the products we used was PoxClin Cool Mousse for Chickenpox.

The kiddies used this product multiple times a day for around 2 weeks. We ended up buying 3 packs of PoxClin Cool Mousse for Chickenpox. It is a pricey product. We found it a lot more expensive than many others products for chicken pox, but it did the work.


Product Description

PoxClin Cool Mousse has been developed to provide relief from skin irritation, itching, burning and sensitivity associated with chickenpox. It contains a unique bioactive bacterial blocker for an effective treatment to sooth the itch, to recondition the skin and to help prevent scar tissue formation. PoxClin Cool Mousse can be easily and hygienically applied to the areas of affected skin.

Check out our thoughts –


  1. I found it easy to apply on the children thanks to the great texture. The packaging is also very practical. The pump makes it so easy to use.
  2. It quickly absorbs into the skin.
  3. This product does relief the itch that comes with chickenpox.
  4. It helps the skin heal and prevents scarring.
  5. The kiddies loved the feeling of this product on their skin.
  6. There are no harsh chemicals or toxic substances in PoxClin.

None. I can’t fault this product. It was a life saver for us. The only bit I didn’t really like was the price tag. The bottle is only 100ml so we went through each bottle quickly. However, I quickly understood why it was more expensive than other products for chickenpox, after trying some others.

I recommend PoxClin to anyone who has chicken with chickenpox. This product must the ordeal a lot easier. It is a very effective product and it does all it promises to do.
