We recently received the new NUK Easy Learning Snack Box to try out on the kids. With the twins going from babies to toddlers and their eating habits going from messy to absolute chaos (sine toddlers love nothing more than eating on the go), I generally jump at the opportunity for mess-free meal items and a chance to give my kids something nice without it ending up in the couch or on the floor. Self-feeding is definitely fun, but tremendously messy, and whilst allowing your child to make a mess every now and then is good for them, it’s also not always convenient. So we put the Snack Box to the test… Read more (hyper link read more - www.thekennyfamily.co.za/nuk-snack-box-review/)

Like all things while preparing for your babies arrival, shopping around for ‘the perfect’ product is extremely overwhelming! I remember back to when I first found out I was pregnant.

We have always used the NUK soothers, with both Ava and now Hannah because aside from their products all being BPA free,they are, in my opinion, the pretties soothers on the market too! And the new Freestyle Soother is all of that, plus it is orthodontically correct in that it is modeled on the shape of a nipple during breastfeeding to aid oral development, it is also particularly kind to the skin thanks to its innovative mouth shield. New ventilation holes minimizes skin contact and ensure optimal air flow while feeling gentle against a baby’s sensitive skin.

January 2015, Blog: Beauty and the Baby Blog (Hyperlink name - http://bb-blog.co.za)
As you all know, NUK is favoured in this household and a brand that I trust when it comes to all things dummies, bottles and feeding equipment. I have had a few readers ask me about breast pumps, which ones I have tried and more specifically my thoughts on NUK’s breast pumps. Despite being a breastfeeding mom … Read More (Hyperlink read more - http://bb-blog.co.za/?s=Nuk )
June 2017, Blog: Baby Yum Yum (hyperlink name - babyyumyum.co.za/ocd-paranoia-taking-babys-temperature-olden-days-circa-1714-2016/
A brand new parent has many fears and nightmares. One of the concerns is that the bath water for their baby is too hot when they bring baby home and the worst nightmare for all parents is when their baby is sick and they are not sure if a slight temperature warrants a trip to the doctor/caregiver/paed/granny/homeopath/midwife or whomever you trust to diagnose your baby.
That feeling of uncertainty, which is compounded by baby screaming, crying and/or vomiting in the middle of the night brings many moms to tears, in panic and empathy for their baby.
Step in NUK!!!
Being such a momcentric brand NUK has thought of everything and have now introduced a 2 in 1 baby thermometer. Why 2 in 1? It is able to take temperature in the ear or at the temple using its infrared technology. This makes taking the temperature of your sleeping baby a piece of cake without waking them to insert a thermometer in some scary place.What I love most about this thermometer is that it is able to take the surface temperature of babies food, room temperature and bath water (helping you get over your bath water fear) with the simple push of a button to change the mode and clear indication on the display screen.
I wanted to be sure that the readings were correct and accurate, so I opted to take my own temperature using the thermometer in my ear (three times just to check that the reading was the same and alleviate my OCD tendencies) and then comparing it to a normal old fashioned thermometer, which had been in my mouth and ‘voila’ the reading was the same.
When using the old fashioned mercury thermometer I wondered why anyone would still want to use this method as it takes long to get a reading, it is not so hygienic (OCD thought again), even worse damaging your babies rectum (yikes – paranoia creeping in) and there is always the small but very possible chance of it breaking and leaking mercury (or whatever the new replacement in it is) into your entire system doing terrible things to you or it even getting lost in the depths of the mommy/nappy bag and never seeing daylight again until stood on or being slammed in the door and breaking all over everything! #truestory
Some of the other features that I love are:
It looks very sleek and modern. It is small enough to fit in your handbag.When scanning you hear a little beep that tells you when it is working as well and when it has taken the reading. The batteries are easily available.
In order to minimise the chaos that is created when you have a baby, I would strongly recommend buying this unit prior to the birth of your baby so that when the moments arise and you need the clarity to alleviate your paranoia, you have it ready and on hand to be supermom and make an informed decision thanks to the use of this excellent gadget on how to better assist your little one. This great product is readily available at Baby City for just R659.99!
