For many reasons, my wife had to work really hard to breastfeed. She had a couple of obstacles to get past which sometimes prevented her from enjoying the breastfeeding journey. With both of our children she struggled with positioning which seemed to affect the latch creating a toe curling, tear-inducing pain. Once she’d manage to get the baby on and feeding more comfortably I remember her then complaining about back pain. She never moans or anything my Missus! I only really understood her plight when we started introducing a bottle and I was able to offer my feeding support.
I was first made aware of the Magic Sleepsuit by a fellow new Daddoo. He waxed lyrical about this new sleepsuit which was helping the whole family sleep after a tricky first few months.
When I was first approached to review BeKOOOL gel sheets, I did wonder when I would get the opportunity to test them out on Ayla. At first, I considered letting her run around in wet socks which was clearly stupid. My next idea was turning the heating up in the house which was again a barm-pot scheme.
Teething is a long, enduring battle. Not only is your child in pain but there’s little you can do to avoid it. Ayla would slavver for England, develop rosy red cheeks like a beacon of light and get a constantly runny nose. The pains can come out of nowhere, and Ayla would begin screaming uncontrollably. We felt helpless watching our little one in pain but there were several things we could do to try and help her.
