If your children enjoy cheer leading, they may be interested in a cheer leader lolly.

What you need:

  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Small Pom Poms
  • Hot glue gun
  • Small piece of ribbon

How to make the cheer leader lolly:

Simply wrap the pipe cleaners around the lolly stick, make a pair of arms with the pipe cleaners, then stick a mini pom pom on the end of each arm.

When this idea was posted over the internet, here are some responses this received:

  • “Very cute idea!” – Grace Pepple
  • “My daughter loved it, and now she is bugging me to allow her to do cheer leading.” – Josie Gonzales

Here are some tips when buying maternity clothes. They have been taken from a survey that was taken late 2014.

“The style that I find to be the best for me right now (13.5 weeks) is the ‘underbelly’ or ‘no belly’ styles.” – Jo

“The advice I’ve had from friends is that the full belly panel ends up being the best, so that’s what I’ve gone with. I don’t plan on having separate second and third trimester clothes. Roll panel is nice, because right now I can fold it over and that seems to work well.” – Susan

“I really like the roll-panel for earlier on, but I need the support of a full-panel in later pregnancy — the others feel like they dig into my stomach.” – Michelle

“I have a lot of half panel styles, but the half panel jeans constantly fall down. I tried on full panel and loved them!” – Pamela

“I have some hidden tab jeans which I love because they looked like real jeans. I can loosen them as I get bigger and I think they’ll be good after the baby is born.” – Vande

When buying gifts for newborn babies, people normally make the wrong decisions by buying cloths that will fit the baby at that current time. Something you should think about when buying gifts for newborn babies is to buy something for a few months older. You do this because babies grow so quickly, this will also become useful for the parents to help with their new baby.

The best gifts are also the things you need, even if they aren’t as ‘cute’ as teeny baby clothes. An example of something which would be really useful are gift cards or money, this helps the parent as they could use that money on essentials for their newborn.

A common gift people will end up giving to babies is teddy bears, and although this is a lovely gift, most people may think about giving teddies, the baby will get too many teddies! When planning a gift, make sure it is unique and nobody else will also give one.


If your child is a football fan then they might like a personalised football shirt. You can get personalised football shirts for any team you desire, whether it is a national team shirt (e.g. England, America, Spain), or a local team (e.g. Manchester, Liverpool, Westham).

A nice idea about personalised football shirts is that you could have your name written on the ban or the front of the shirt. This allows the child to show off to their friends and pretend they are actually in the team.

A bad point about this is that sometimes the print can separate from the shirt when it gets washed.
