How to wean a toddler from bottle feeding

Bottle feeding a baby is a time-consuming and stressful task. You must monitor your milk production, your baby's feeding schedule, and other factors. Once you start weaning your toddler from the bottle, it can be equally as stressful—but for very different reasons! Some mothers feel bad about denying their toddlers something they adore so much, while others worry that if a bottle isn't around at all times, their children won't get enough food or liquids. What if, then, I could prove to you that things don't have to be this way? That there are actually ways to help you through the process? Be consistent While consistency is important for all aspects of parenting, it's especially important when weaning a toddler from bottle feeding. While your child may be ready to make the transition, she might not want to let go of her beloved bottle—and that's okay! Be patient and don't give up hope if it takes your child a few days or weeks to adjust. The easiest

Hair removal tips ready for summer

Let’s face it, hair removal is a chore! Keeping stubborn stubble at bay isn’t easy, but there are ways to de-fuzz effectively in time for summer – check out these five tips.

Laser hair removal

The barbeque season seems to be drawing to an end but that’s no reason to shy away from being gorgeous, so book a course of laser hair removal and feel glamorous for the rest of the warmer months. This non-surgical procedure destroys the base of each hair follicle and can prevent hair from growing back. It’s relatively pain-free and requires little to no downtime (making it a highly convenient treatment). The laser works best if you have pale skin and dark hair, but new technology is being introduced all the time. A number of sessions are usually recommended, so arrange a consultation now ready for the warm weather.


If you’re heading abroad this year, why not get your eyebrows threaded? Many reputable beauty stores offer a hair removal service of this kind, so it’s worth looking around. A highly-trained beautician will pull each follicle out using a length of thread and will leave you with an immaculate brow. The procedure is incredibly accurate and is relatively pain-free compared to tweezing and waxing. Results can even last up to six weeks – so it’s definitely wise to get it done before the temperature rises. 

Professional wax

Have you ever tried waxing at home? If so, you’ll know it can be a messy, painful affair. It’s much better to go to a professional salon and have your hair removed properly. Highly-trained beauticians will test your skin prior to treatment (to check you don’t have a negative reaction) before applying the wax. They’ll even moisturise the area and should make sure that all straggling follicles have been whisked away – plus you won’t have to deal with the sticky strips, meaning you’ll be able to have beautiful skin in no time and feel confident this summer.


If you can’t tolerate the pain of waxing and prefer shaving – always exfoliate first. Rubbing an abrasive shower cream over your skin will reduce rough patches helping the razor to glide without cutting you. Exfoliating will also open your pores and increase circulation – leaving you with beautiful legs and arms. Maintain this beauty regime throughout the year and you could also prevent ingrown hairs – a common side effect of shaving. If you find that exfoliating alone doesn’t help rid your legs of spots, lines, blemishes, or any other skin ailment, try a non-surgical treatment known as IPL laser. This procedure uses pulses of light to penetrate tissue and encourages the body to repair itself – genius.
