Black Playstation 4 Console, PS4, Sony, controller
Being a big gamer I was excited to be fortunate enough to be able to secure a PS4 for launch date in the UK.  One of the things I really enjoy with a new console is the unboxing, opening of console and add on PS4 peripherals, and then taking my time to get the set up perfect ready for the first switch on.

Anyone who knows me knows I have books and pads for everything. I write everything down. I am always writing lists, blog ideas, notes and I always get a new diary at Christmas too. Writing your thoughts and ideas down is a great way to save your memories and look back on them later in life. When I found From You to Me I instantly loved the idea so I was so pleased when I got the chance to receive a Dear Mum Journal - From You to Me

I have always been a fan of Carte Blanche Tatty Teddy. Ever since John
 and I first got together and he bought me my first bear. He bought me a bear holding a pillow and wearing a nightcap with the words goodnight on it. The pillow had a poem saying 

"I GO TO BED AT NIGHT, 
   AND IMAGINE THAT YOU`RE THERE
     I HOPE YOU DREAM OF ME TONIGHT, 
  AND KNOW HOW MUCH I CARE".

I would guess that if John could change one thing about me he would definitely change my feet. Ever since I can remember I have always had cold feet. It doesn't matter if I have been wearing socks, slippers or shoes they are still icy cold. When I was given the chance to review Heat Holders I instantly thought there would be no way they could make my blocks of ice into toastie toes. We were sent two pairs so John and I decided to give them a try.

3 children's bibs with a rocket, car and plane on,
Recently I stumbled upon a website called Funky Giraffe Bibs. I was searching for dribble bibs for little J who is teething at the moment and a good quality dribble bib is hard to find so I thought I would look online.

There is a HUGE selection of bibs to choose from Bandana Bibs, Cotton Bibs, XL Bibs and XXL Bibs. After browsing through the amazing selection I noticed they also stocked other baby items. I fell in love with the playsuits available they are so cute.

Nom Nom Kids Reusable Pouch Review

Little J loves his fruit and yoghurts but when you're out and about it can be a pain if he doesn't finish one and wants the rest later. I usually throw half pots away because they cant be stored in my changing bag. This means more expense because I end up buying another later on. When little J was given the chance to try out Nom Nom Kids reusable pouches I was excited and eager to try them out.

Crawlerz Romper Review

Even though little J is 11 months old he hasn't really made much attempt in trying to crawl. We have tried everything to encourage him but it seems as soon as he starts to get onto his knees he slips back down to the lying position. I visited the Crawlerz Website and I really loved the idea so when I was given the chance to review a Crawlerz romper suit I jumped at the chance.

Dribble Stop Top Review

5 March 2014

44 comments
Disclosure -  I was sent this product for free for the purpose of this review but the thoughts and opinions above are my own. *** Dribble Stop Tops have since ceased trading. 

Dribble Stop Top
Little J has just cut his fifth tooth so he spends his days in a pool of drool. I am constantly changing his vests, clothes and dribble bibs. It's just an endless cycle of fresh clean clothes, wet clothes, wet chest, upset little J, washing then back to clean clothes again. When I found the Dribble Stop Top website I thought it sounded too good to be true. So when I was given the chance for little J to review a dribble stop top I was really excited but nervous at the same time because it's such a great idea and I really wanted it to work.

When it arrived I couldn't wait to try it on little J. It came in clear packaging and it had a leaflet explaining how the dribble stop top works.

Dribble Stop Top
The first thing I noticed was the quality of the top. It was really well made with nice detail around the arms and the legs. There is a layer of special waterproof material underneath which helps protect the chest but I couldn't see this when it was on him, very discreet.

Dribble Stop Top
 So we were ready to try. I put it on little J and decided I would give it a hour first before I checked him because normally after a hour he is ready for a change of clothes.

Once it was on I was really impressed with the fit. The neckline is really high and has two buttons either side. Sometimes little J's vests give him the 'off the shoulder' look because they go quite baggy and I knew straight away this wouldn't happen with the dribble stop top. 

Dribble Stop Top
Also it fits perfectly around the bum so no nappy bulging out the sides.

Dribble Stop Top
After 1 hour of playing and as you can see from the photo below lots of drooling it was time to check him.

I was so happy when little J was completely dry. His chest was warm instead of the usual cold and sticky. I didn't need to change little J's vest at all so it gave me a day off from washing. Little J was much happier too.

How It Works

A Pocket made of Specialised Waterproof Material with Skin-Like Breathability – is hidden inside the top which completely covers and protects the Dribble Zone (chest area).

The Unique Extra High Neckline – Ensures maximum coverage.

 Our Discreet Dribble Stop Protection – Acts as a barrier & helps stop dribble soaking through to baby’s delicate skin.

Soft Cotton Jersey – Is the only material in contact with baby’s skin ensuring they remain comfortable as well as, safe & dry.

For Parents

No More Constant Clothing Changes = A lighter changing bag

Fewer Changes = Less washing & less ironing

Tumble Dryable = Convenience

Safe Protection = Peace of mind for those nap times & nursery days

No more disturbed sleeps (due to cold wet chests) = more sleep for you

I would definitely recommend dribble stop tops for all little dribblers out there. I have already stocked up on some more because right now these are a must have.

Dribble Stop Tops are available in sizes Sizes 0-3ms, 3-6m, 6-12m, 12-18m, 18-24m.
Available in packs of 2 or 1 & 1 stripe (pink or blue).
