Accessible Last Minute Gift Ideas For A Newborn | Rebecca Hollick

I found it really difficult choosing presents for Kaia this year, with her being only just 5 months today (crying emoji) her pile just didn't seem as big as Leia's

I've found a few last minute gifts I would like to share with you to give you some last minute inspiration

Lamaze Toys: These are really easily accessible - you can buy them in Tesco

I really like 'Symphony Oscar' he retails at around £19.99 and is a musical maestro!

Munching Max is another great one, pull the clip and watch as he chomps away on his acorn!

Finally from Little Tikes is the 'Tummy Tunes Giraffe' you can pick these up at argos and they are under £20 the perfect gift for a newborn!
Have you finished all of your shopping or you a last minute kind of girl like me?!

Heavenly Organics - Superfoods for the whole family - REVIEW

Heavenly Organic offer the perfect solution to getting superfoods in to your child's diet.

Heavenly offer the most innovatively designed baby snacks I have ever seen.
From their 'Coconut Squishies' to their 'Mini Italian Breadsticks' which are adorable, all are also 100% organic!

I have found their selection to be the ultimate snacking solution for Leia while we are out & about. I have the piece of mind that if we are caught out somewhere (in traffic usually), I have good nutritious snacks to give her to keep her sustained until we get home.

The 'Squisihies' really are yummy! I usually have a try of most foods she eats & can report that these are incredible. There is nothing added, no sugar or salt & they are suitable for babies aged 6 months plus.

You can serve the squishies straight from the pouch or obviously use a spoon, Leia usually will just grab it and go straight in!

The mini Italian Breadsticks were also a firm favourite, although aimed at a bigger child (12 months plus) the shape is perfect for smaller hands.
The thing I love about Heavenly is that the foods will grow with your child, even suitable for a packed lunch box.

Heavenly Organics are leading the way in 100% organic foods for children & have BRC accreditation, you can read all about that here.

You can find Heavenly Organics in all of the major retailers including Tesco & Morrisons. You can also shop online here.

Have you tried Heavenly? What did you think?

Naturally Healthy Variety For Baby - For Aisha Baby Food REVIEW

Award Winning For Aisha, a relatively new player in the baby food aisle recently sent Leia (my very fussy 20 month old) a selection of their 7 & 10 month plus range to try out.

The textures in the 7 month plus pouches were perfectly blended, no lumps for tiny mouths which is brilliant. You can either heat the contents of the pouch in the microwave or boil the whole pouch to warm it although they can eve eaten at room temperature.

I usually go for the microwave option. Leia tried a few different flavours (all of them beautiful) but her personal favourite was the Jamaican Jerk Chicken. She is becoming increasingly fussy with foods and I do try to mix it up every now and then for variety. She actually cried for more after she was finished which is so unlike her. The tastes were mildly spicy, very mildly which was just lovely and warming especially for these colder days. The 7 month pouches almost reminded me of a thick soup, perfect for this time of year! You could almost dip a slice of bread in and it would be fine as a lunch for an older baby. The Mild Curried Chicken with Dhal would be perfect for this.

Moving on to the ten month plus pouches (stage 3), the contents doubled in size & the best thing was the bigger lumps were actually mashable, with a spoon - something many brands forget to do somehow. Personally I think For Aisha's 10 month plus range is the perfect consistency for a baby of that age.

Overall the experience was brilliant & I would recommend you giving them a try if you haven't done. You can find them in Tesco, Asda, Morrisons & Whole Foods.
