Are Restaurants Required To Have High Chairs?

Mia loves to eat out at a cafe or restaurant. It’s a real treat for her and I think it’s because she loves being wined and dined! I have to say my wife and I have rarely faced a situation when a restaurant hasn’t had any high chairs. There have been occasions when there hasn’t been one available as they were all being used by other families, but usually we haven’t had an issue. Even more surprising when here in the UK, according to...

How To Fold A High Chair

When my wife and I purchased a high chair for Mia a few years ago, we wanted something we knew would last a long time. We purchased a Cosatto Waffel Strudel (which I believe is no longer available) and this should last for several years until Mia reaches her teenage years. However, it can also be folded up which has been handy on occasions when we’re having a tidy up in the kitchen, or cleaning the floor.  We also purchased it...

Why Do Some High Chairs Recline?

When my wife and I purchased Mia’s high chair a few years ago, it never crossed our minds to get one that would recline.

LATCH vs ISOFIX Car Seats: What’s The Difference?

Car seat safety has changed a lot over the past 20 years. When I was a boy growing up in the UK, car seats weren’t rear facing at all and the law was very different to what it is today. In fact, until as recently as 2006, children over the age of 3 only had to use a car seat or booster seat, “if there was one available”. Imagine that? Also, children under the age of twelve were also able to sit in the front of the car without a car...

15 Benefits Of Being Bilingual

Those of you who have followed my blog for a while will probably have guessed that I’m a native English speaker. However, what you may not know is that my wife is Russian, and that we’ve decided to raise our daughter in a bilingual household. It’s one of the many parenting topics we’ve discussed at length over the past few years. Mia is currently 3 and a half and she can speak both languages fairly well,...

9 Pacifier Alternatives For Toddlers

Are you thinking of getting rid of the pacifier, or do you want to avoid using one altogether? When my wife was pregnant, we always said we wouldn’t use a pacifier with our daughter. But 3 weeks after Mia was born, we were sat in the park, sleep deprived and exhausted…. Mia was screaming and crying, so we just popped a pacifier in her mouth. Silence. Some peace and quiet at last! We decided to get rid of the pacifier just after...
