• Baby Bag goodies!

    For those of you who don’t know, Dischem has an awesome Baby Club. There’s loads of specials on baby products and they keep you up to date on vaccines as well.

    Product: Grace Maternity Belt Price: R239 Rating: 3.5 stars My second trimester was rife with lower back, hip and groin pain. I felt like an old lady with arthritis every time I sat down and stood up. What made it worse is that laying down didn’t seem to help either. I was in constant pain.

  • Budget Huggies -vs- Budget Pampers

We were saving a ton by her using panties during the day but what can you do.  She was using the Huggies pull-ups but since she’s not using them for their actual pull up/pull down purpose I decided to…
