Jake has just enjoyed his 1st birthday and it was a great celebration made so much better by all of the family joining in. There were balloons, candles, presents and of course - food! We're still at a crucial stage with Jake and feeding, and we're very much still in the weaning phases in which I try to get him to eat a whole range of fruit, vegetables and meat - and he prefers to throw it all on the floor and scoff a brioche.
I'm not gonna lie; I find weaning hard. I find it hard to manage the time and preparation of it all. I find it tough to work full time - get back in time to feed him something that's home-made and completely 'clean eating'. Mostly, I find the mess hard.
What can I say? I'm just NOT the 'earth-mother' - easy going, - yay let's make a mess which will stain all of the walls and carpets - kind of mother. I find the mess stressful, and because we privately rent I worry about the marks, the stains and the damage that we might end up needing to pay for.
When I was recently sent a whole range of Dettol * products to try out, to help weaning and keeping our family life as germ free as possible, I was a little sceptical. I mean, how was it going to make anything easier?
It does though.
Dettol's Handy Antibacterial wipes have been a complete life-saver in helping me to tackle the mess and germs that come hand in hand with weaning. They have really enabled me to feel less on edge about the mess Jake gets into and they are so quick and easy that I can mop up any potential stain-bombs immediately, before they have chance to ruin carpets, walls or clothes.
Just take a look!!
The fact that they are proven to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses is just a huge bonus. They are a staple in our life now and a fantastic way to keep things clean and safe.
Also, Dettol's handy antibactieral wipes and other products are safe to use around little ones because they are bleach free and odourless (though a gorgeous citrus one is available if you prefer something with a bit of zing). The Dettol range is proven to kill:
As well as remove:
Overall? Weaning has definitely been made easier with the help of Dettol's products, and so has family life generally. They allow a busy mum, who works full time and has a husband who works shifts, try to stay on top of life's mess.
