I picked this cute nautical design wich goes well with Bobcat’s room decor: True Blue Stripes 18-36m 2.5 Tog Grobag This …

As a wife and a daughter, I believe women should provide encouragement and support to the men in their lives to check themselves for the signs of testicular cancer. The charity have just completed surveying the British public, revealing that on average only 32% …

Fresh Spinach and Pear Salad With Feta Cheese And Pomegranate

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I’m a big fan of salads combining fruits, vegetables and cheese. I could eat them every day. When you’re having guests and you want to prepare something different from the usual green salad, this could work very well as a good-looking, tasty and not your everyday starter dish. There’s not much work with it either, ready in 15 minutes. The …

5 Reasons To Switch To Use Reusable Nappies

In Green by eva.katona@yahoo.com4 Comments

With Bobcat we use cloth diaper most of the time, I’d say 90% of the time. We only use disposable (bio-degradable) nappies during the night and when we’re out and about for a longer time (longer than half a day). The 2 main reasons we switched to reusable diapers are: they helped him with his eczema. Essentially, we reduced allergens getting in contact …

Pasta With Salmon And Broccoli In Cheese Sauce – Great Toddler Meal

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I normally have this in the freezer all the time, for Bobcat and for the days when he’s extra picky and won’t eat anything substantial. Pasta can always come. So it’s a good idea to add as much healthy and nutritious ingredients to a pasta dish as you can. Very simple to prepare, a real comfort food for him. If …

Rich Lentil Soup – One Pot Super Meal

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I love rich, hearty, almost stewy soups, without meat of course. I’m talking about the ones you could enjoy with a piece of crusty bread and some red wine on a cold day. This lentil soup is like that. Lots of vegetables, some hot chili and green spices. Lentil is a core vegetarian ingredient in my view. Rich in fibre, folate, iron …

8 Things To Change Instantly After Baby Eczema Diagnosis

In Life by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

When my son was diagnosed with eczema, I got really scared. It was mild, but we didn’t know (still don’t) what was the cause, so it was hard to figure it out how to control it. According to the National Eczema Association, it usually starts within the first 5 years of life. (It affects about 20% of children, in some …
