Where do you get the perfect, cutest baby clothes for your Sweet Little ones?

One of the most wonderful things of being a mum is that you get to choose some really lovely clothes for your little one. It's usually more exciting for a Mum to get stuff for her baby than for herself and you will often see them being excited when these things arrive.

I'm going to talk about only 3 of my favourite shopping sites after the cut and how  I get my stuff delivered to me.

Making knee pads for your crawling baby

I picked up my little one while he was crawling and noticed that a part of his knees looked lighter, like he had light bruises on them.

That was when I started wondering what I could do to protect the tender skin on his knees against the rough rug while he crawled. I checked a few sites and only found something on Amazon with very low reviews and high price. Aside from the fact that they were expensive, there was still the problem of how long I will have to wait to get them while my poor baby suffers knee bruises so, I put on my thinking cap and came up with these wonderful knee pads for him. 

I'll briefly explain how I made them with pictures, after the cut.

Keeping Baby's Bum Diaper Rash Free

Picture Credit: momtastic parenting. 

Diaper rash can be very painful and extremely uncomfortable to babies.  

The good thing though is that it's pretty easy to ensure that babies never get diaper rash at any stage with the use of good old petroleum jelly, precisely, Vaseline or Pears baby where Vaseline is not available.

How to stop babies from thumb or pacifier sucking

Some babies  learn the art of sucking from the womb and master it in the first few weeks of their lives on earth or learn to suck as soon as they are born. Sooner or later, the finger sucking becomes a habit which is usually very very hard to break. The only good thing about babies that suck is that they always seem to be at peace and can easily sleep on their own without fussing. This also applies to babies that use pacifiers. The big issue, however is always how to suck and which is the lesser evil,  pacifier or thumb.

My Child and I

Introducing my Little speedster
Finally, I succeeded! . 

I've been trying to create a page with multiple posts but because I've been away from my blog for so long, I couldn't remember how to create it. I finally figured it out and created a page titled My Child and I

This page is going to be about the sweet experiences and the challenges mothers (and fathers too) face in the process of bringing up their little ones. It will be a place where you can seek advice, share yours, tell people what to expect, share tips on where to shop for the little darlings, parties and all other baby gists.

My very unpleasant experience with Jumia

JUMIA does not post reviews from real purchasers. 

I love shopping online. I have shopped in a lot of American and UK sites, so you can only imagine my excitement when online shopping became a reality in Nigeria. I started by shopping on Konga and when my experience was good, I figured Nigeria was truly ripe for online shopping. 

My little nephew was going to be 8 years old in a few weeks and after agreeing with my dear husband on what to get for him, I went on Jumia and saw an unbelievable cheap tap with decent reviews. Not a lot of reviews, but they were decent and the tab had very brilliant product details and specifications. 

I placed an order for the Quantum Wave 70M2 tablet for the sum of N9,995 and opted to pay on delivery. I was promptly called to confirm my order and it was delivered to my office the next working day.

Finally, Paypal is active in Nigeria! Just opened mine.

I was lounging with my dear husband yesterday evening when he mentioned that PayPal has come to Nigeria. Trust me, I ran to Mr. google for divination and was super excited when I discovered it was true.

I tried to open an account immediately but couldn't until this morning when I tried again and lo and behold, I opened one.

Nelson Mandela dies at 95

I woke up to the sad news of Nelson Mandela's passing this morning. Even though it's been expected for a while now, it is still quite sad.

Nelson Mandela has died at his home in Johannesburg, South Africa aged 95. The anti-apartheid icon died at 12:50pm EST surrounded by close family. Mandela's death came nearly five months after he was admitted to hospital with a lung infection. Despite being allowed to return home three months ago, South Africa's first black president has not been able to move from a bedroom described as being a 'virtual 24 hour intensive care unit' and has needed a ventilator to breath.

South Africa's president Jacob Zuma announced the long-expected death in a special television broadcast last night. Mr Zuma said: 'Our nation has lost its greatest son.' 'What made Nelson Mandela great was precisely what made him human. We saw in him what we seek in ourselves'.

May his soul rest in peace.
