Sleepy time.


I thought I would do a blog on masons sleeping patterns as it’s what I get asked about the most on Instagram. 

I’m not strict with masons sleeping and everyday is different but he’s normally asleep by 6.30pm. Masons a very good sleeper, he sleeps around 13 hours each night. He didn’t always believe me. When he was first born he didn’t sleep longer than an hour without waking up and thinking it’s party time again! 

As masons got older his routine and kept changing. Mason used to nap two times a day and me and Adam would just wait for him to fall asleep on our bed then move him straight into his cot. Apart from when Mason was very little, he’s never slept in my bed. He’s very wriggly and likes a lot of space! 

As Mason got older I started cutting his naps down to once a day and they always fell at around 10am, so by 6pm he ready to drop. 

But now 90% of the time he doesn’t nap in the day. If he’s woke up earlier that morning then usual and he’s tired by 10/11am I just let him drop off too sleep. I stopped masons naps about 2 months ago and he’s fine without a nap. He still has loads of energy and his mood isn’t any different. If he was tired and miserable of course I would let him to go to sleep which some days does happen. 

Mason went though a phase where he would get really upset whenever I tried to put him down for a nap or if he felt like I was trying to relax him. So I just stopped trying and he just carried on as normal being barking mad! 

Masons routine differs everyday depending what we’ve been doing. We spend a lot of time at my older brothers and he ends up falling asleep on the way home. Masons really good because you can carry him from the car and put him in bed and he doesn’t wake up. 

On a normal day I normally bath Mason around 4/4.30pm. He has his dinner after his bath because his dad gets home at 5pm so we all have dinner together and by 5.30pm some days masons to tired to bath so I do it when he’s chirpy and can enjoy it. 

After his dinner he plays in his bedroom with me and his dad until he starts to rub his eyes and Mason lets you know when it’s bed time. He says mum mum mum over and over again. Quite cute to be honest but I think that’s because I can’t get enough of him saying my name. 

I make his milk and his night time bottle I always make a bit warmer so it settles nicely on his tummy. Mason only has two bottles of cows milk a day now. Sometimes he will only have one and other days he will have three. All depending on how he’s feeling and what he fancies eating that day. 

I have an arm chair in masons room, which I lay him in my arms, feed him his bottle, which normally he falls asleep drinking or I will lay him in his cot and he will sooth himself to sleep. This took a few times to work. He didn’t just drop off the first time I lay him in there. He would cry I would go in lay him back down give him another kiss and cover him up. I think I did this 10 times the first few times I tried self soothing him. 

Every body puts their children to sleep in different ways. It’s what works for you in your home. Mason used to fall asleep in my arms in my bed every night but as he got older he would literally stay awake till 12pm. He has so much energy and he really didn’t want to let himself fall asleep. 

Mason also has a bottle of milk in the middle of the night about 3pm. I do the same in the night. Sit in the chair and lie him on me. Give him his bottle and lay him back down and he will go straight back to sleep. Well sometimes. Not going to lie, sometimes after his bottle he will lie in his bed shouting dad and laughing for 15 minutes but he soon gives up and realises mummy does not want to have a party at 3.30am 🙂 Mason odd times will sleep through but 90% of the time he has a bottle in the night. I’ve tried giving his dummy but he just spits it out and cries till I give him his bottle. I really don’t mind because Mason does sleep a long time, so he probably is really hungry by 3pm. 

Hope your have enjoyed masons little sleep routines. Just remember that every baba is different and this is just what works for me and most importantly for Mason. 🙂 

Storksak Organics spa set. 

Thought I’d do a little review on my new spa set from Storksak. I’ll leave the link below here:

I’ve been using the shampoo and body lotion for over a month now and I’ve fallen in love with them. So I decided to try the whole range. The shampoo and body wash smells incredible and Mason hair and skin is always so soft. 

The baby balm works on masons dry skin within days. It’s superb! You can use it on the most delicate skin. 

I think with all the products is the amount you need that I favour. Such a small amount goes a long way. The shampoo I’ve had for 6 weeks now and I’ve used it on Mason everyday and I haven’t even used a quarter of the 100ml bottle. 

The baby oil is becoming my favourite of the set. You run it into yours or your child’s bath and it leaves their skin feeling so hydrated and soft it’s unreal! 

I love oils but I hate when they leave you feeling really sticky. This is perfect because it soaks into their skin while their bathing and no oily mess when they get out. 

These wipes have been amazing for masons face. As he’s always eating it means always has stuff all over his face (and hair most of the time). I use these wipes for masons face and it stops him getting dry skin from me cleaning his face 50 times a day. 

The combination of English pear, chamomile and honey is so subtle and delicious smelling. 

I hope you’ve enjoyed my review and it’s helped if anyone is thinking of trying some organic bath products.

Daniel Wellington. 

Happy Saturday everyone! 

My favourite ever watch company Daniel Wellington asked me to collaborate, of course I said yes! I remember asking my mum for my 20th birthday for the 30mm black watch with gold face. I still wear it today. 

I think there such a simply but subtle statement to an outfit. I am a watch obsessed person anyway, I just love how they can spice up some arm candy or an outfit. 

This time I ordered the 40mm for a bigger watch face with a rose gold face. It had an added gorgeousness when Daniel Wellington brought out the valentines charms for their watches. 

I also like that their unisex, Adams loves borrowing this one because it’s bigger and looks manly on a guy but stylish on a ladies arm. 

If your thinking of treating yourself or your fella head to and use the code REBECCAJAYDEX for 15% off till the 28/02/2017 and at the moment you get a love charm free with any leather watch you buy! 


Sleepover / Storksak post. 



So me and Mason were having a sleep over at my friend Rachael’s and masons friend Jude! So I thought it would be a great opportunity to show you my new grey duffle from Storksak. 

After getting Mason the black one I fell in love and got myself a grey one 🙂 

Only had to take my grey one as it fit everything we needed in perfectly with loads of room. 

The look of the bag is just as beautiful as the black one. Mine has no wheels as I mostly use my duffle bags for when I go up north to see family, so it gets chucked in the car. But Mason loves a set of wheels. 

Perfect duffle for organisation and not having to rummage round your bag for things.

Now for some films, cups of tea, girly chats and getting to crazy bunnies to bed.

Emma Mattress

Hello again! 

Keeping my promise and blogging about more things. Thought I’d blog about mine and Adams new mattress! 

We’ve been wanting a new mattress for so long, but had masons birthday, then mine, then Christmas and it just kept getting put back. 

But finally we have our mattress from

So easy to have delivered as it’s flat packed. Just cut open the bag and it pops into the dreamiest mattress! 

I like to blog about things that I truely love and feel others would be interested to read about. 

Having a toddler is tiring work, even on good days with Mason he still tires me out beyond believe. He has so much more energy then me! So at night I feel like I need a mattress that’s comfortable but supports my aching bones, haha! 

I can hand on heart say since I’ve slept on the Emma Mattress I’ve not woken up once in the night and I’ve felt so rested every morning. 

This picture was taken by my other half when I was letting the child inside of me out and jumped all over the bed 🙂 

Look how squishy is looks where my feet are?! 

If your looking for a new mattress I would have a look and a read through the website. The team are great too if you need to ask if it benefits certain back problems etc. 

Or have a look at other customers photos you can go to there Instagram: @emma.mattress that’s how I discovered them. 

Happy Monday! 

Storksak review


Sorry it’s been so so long since I’ve blogged, but sometimes it’s hard to find things to blog about. 

Recently I ordered this travel bag as my family live four hours away from me. Now masons older we wanted to start travelling up north more. So I was looking for a travel system for Mason things. 

I found the perfect carry on/ hold all bag! This is the direct link:

Here’s some images of inside the bag. 

The fact that is has separators is awesome enough, then it has handles so you can just pull the sections out and don’t have to keep looking in the bag for things. 

Also inside as pockets which I’ve used for bottles and nappies. You just arrange it how you want and place it inside the bag. Or can be used just as a duffle bag and leave the sections out. 

Now for the outside. It’s gorgeous. 

I’m literally that impressed with this bag I’ve ordered the grey duffle for myself! 

Travelling sorted. Now just to book a hotel! 

Hope you enjoyed this and was helpful for anyone looking for this style of bag for travelling. 

I’ll also leave the link to the website as they have loads of baby bags and other changing bags!
