Your Baby Week By Week: Book Review

I’m acutely aware that reading is a luxury that most new mums are unlikely to be afforded, however, I highly recommend this book to any new mum or mum-to-be.

I didn’t come across this until Franky was about 10 weeks old and I WISH I’d found it sooner!

Your Baby Week By Week does exactly what it says!

The book basically takes you through the first 6 months of your babys life, week by week and lets you know what to expect at each point.

Each week is broken down into super useful topics;

A General overview






Development & Playing

When to see a Doctor

What’s Happening to Mum

Planning Ahead

I could really have done with this book in the first few weeks, when you have no idea what your doing and more than anything, are just looking for a bit of reassurance and guidance.

Its brilliant for helping to explain your babys behaviour and patterns, reassuring you that you’re doing just fine and that your baby is as ‘normal’ as any baby is!

It’s easy to read and follow and each chapter/week follows the same format.

I got my book from Amazon for £9.09 and I’m finding its worth its weight in gold.

Bibs & Bobs Bibs

Let’s face it mums, bibs are a necessity when you have a baby.

Well, that is unless you enjoy changing them umpteen times a day when they dribble or vomit their feed down themselves!


Well, just because they are a practical necessity, doesn't mean they can’t be really cute.

Bibs and Bobs have turned this boring product into a super cute fashion accessory with their range of gorgeous bibs!

You can protect your baby’s clothes from the dreaded drool with their wide range of soft, absorbent fleece backed bibs.

Each bib is fitted with 2 sets of poppers, meaning it can grow with your baby and be used from birth until 3 years of age.

There is definitely a bib for every baby with collections designed for boys and girls, a neutral range and there’s even a range for Easter!

Each bib costs £4.50 or you can grab a bargain and buy 5 for £20, which I recommend you do as with so many different fabrics and patterns to choose from, your spoilt for choice.

My favourite boys bib is the Blue Pirate one. 

I love putting Franky in it and am often inclined to leave it on after a feed as he looks like a little Pirate himself, sporting his bandana bib!

You can check out and purchase your Bibs and Bobs bib at their website Here.
