Baby Keepsakes

The Protection Of Owls

Did you know that owls symbolise wisdom, intelligence and protection?  Ancient civilisations worshipped owls as sacred creatures, guardians of the underworld and spirits.  Their clear night vision has come to represent insight and the interpretation of meanings. If you are an owl lover, this information probably comes as no surprise to you.  I have a […]

Sleepy Time Lights

Bedtime is fight time when little ones don’t want to go to bed.  What they can’t tell you, sometimes, is that they are scared to be in the dark. I can remember hiding under the bedclothes so whatever was lurking out there in the dark corner of my room would not be able to see […]

Taking A Bite Out Of Teething Pain

When a baby or toddler begins to “cut” their teeth, it can be a painful experience both for family and child.  A baby that is cutting their teeth may be irritable, fussy, and in a natural urge to find relief, may start biting on anything that is handy. Metal keys, sharp corners of furniture, literally […]

How To Tell If Your Baby Has A Temperature

One of the hardest parts of parenting is when your child becomes unwell. The first few months of a baby’s life are the most worrying, mainly because the baby’s immune system has not matured. It is not yet capable of fighting against any infections. No matter what the age, having a sick child is quite […]

Toys For Reading And Writing

Play in an integral part of every child’s normal growth and development.
