Happy 3rd Birthday to All Baby Advice Blog!


Today is very important for me because:

  • It is my due date!

  • It is my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary!

  • It is my blog’s 3rd birthday!

I am writing this post a few days in advance as I am hoping that signs of labour might be on the way on this day, and will probably not have time to write a post in between having contractions… It has been an amazing journey for me, have met some great people and made some fabulous friends, and it is very hard to believe it has been exactly 3 years since I have started writing All Baby Advice blog.

You probably know that until last September I was on Blogger, but thanks to a very unpleasant experience with having all my blog content and images stolen, and not much help from Blogger, I made the decision to move to self-hosted WordPress and am very happy for doing so.

If you check my blog’s archive, you will not find my first blog posts as I deleted them while doing a little clean up a while back. At that time I thought it was the best thing to do, and that the first few post were “rubbish”, but now I am actually thinking that I shouldn’t have done that…but unfortunately cannot undo that.

I hope you have enjoyed reading my blog and as a thank you I have a gorgeous pink or blue Paddlepak from Trunki for one of you. Please leave a comment with a link to the post you have enjoyed on my blog the most and good luck. I will choose the winner with the help of Random Number Generator as always with my competitions, and will get in touch via Twitter and e-mail. The winner will be revealed on 10th April 2012!




and the winner is:

Congratulations to Lee Johnson!

Please e-mail me your full name, address and the colour you would like to receive at allbabyadvice@yahoo.co.uk with “trunki paddlepak” in the subject line.

Thank you.

  5. Happy 3rd birthday blog, mum and dads wedding anniversary and due date :-)

    My favourite blog post was Isabelles new ear-rings, It is quite a controversial subject (and I like a bit of controversy!!!) and she looked absolutely gorgeous in her new ear-rings, of all the blog posts I have read that one stuck with me for some reason.


    Fab competition, the Trunki Paddlepak look fantastic, thanks for running it.

    Sending positive labour vibes xxx

  6. good luck and i hope your little one doesnt take too long! I liked http://allbabyadvice-blog.com/index.php/2011/09/a-happy-memory/ where you showed s the first picture of him/her.

  7. Happy birthday to allbabyadvice!! excellent giveaway, if you start labour today youll have a mega 11th March next yr! lol


    Best wishes


  8. Happy 3d Birthday! Have a great time and, hopefully, your baba will not make you wait too long.

    I liked many of your posts about Isabelle at school and your reviews as well. If I had to pick one, I’d go with “Isabelle’s new pair of earrings”, because I so want my daughter to have some (but too chicken to get it done!). Besides, Isabelle looks lovely in that post’s photos.

  9. http://allbabyadvice-blog.com/index.php/2011/09/i-am-craving-isabella-olivers-gorgeous-maternity-dresses/ good luck and congratulations @MummyFever

  15. Happy blogaversary, due date & parents’ anniversary!

    My favourite post is one of the first I remember reading, and commenting on – the Czech goulash & dumplings recipe. http://allbabyadvice-blog.com/index.php/2010/07/goulash-with-traditional-czech-bread-dumplings-2/ (which reminds me, I REALLY need to get my mum’s dumplings recipe soon!)

  16. Happy Birthday!!!!

    Sound silly I know, but I enjoyed your recipe post – to make Gnocchi al Forno with Spinach and Chicken !!!! http://allbabyadvice-blog.com/index.php/2012/03/gnocchi-al-forno-with-spinach-broccoli-chicken/ As you know, I followed your recipe and it was a great success. You have introduced my family to a new product – Gnocchi – and now we are addicted!!! You have inspired me to become more adventurous with my cookery and now I am on the hunt for more recipes! I’ll be watching out for more of your ideas! Thank you x

  17. I love the baby scan blog
    Good luck to you!

  18. Happy 3rd Birthday !! my fave post as been the pregnancy related ones being pregnant myself with Baby Number 3 ! especially http://allbabyadvice-blog.com/index.php/2011/10/dont-take-anything-for-granted-my-nuchal-scan/ @chanson2010 0n twitter

  19. Good luck for the safe arrival of little one – not the teccie one so dont know how to do links yet, loved many articles – your little girl hair cut was cute, earings was cute and memory box made me cry a little too!

  20. My favorite blog was http://allbabyadvice-blog.com/index.php/2011/10/dont-take-anything-for-granted-my-nuchal-scan/
    I went through a similar experience at just sixteen but my little girl was born with Downs and i unfortunately lost her when she was six months old. I have had a further two children which are thankfully are both healthy but dreaded going for scans and then the amno.
    Keep up the good work!

  21. Happy birthday! My choice is:
    As a mum of one little girl, wondering when to think about a second is something I think about a lot! I wonder what she would make of it all and worry about the age gap. Loved reading your little girl’s reaction to it all. :) xx

  22. I was introduced to you and your blog back in October time, and I have to say that I love your http://allbabyadvice-blog.com/index.php/blog-post-of-the-month/
    idea. It has really introduced me to some fab blogs which I woul never have found otherwise!
    Thank you and good luck with the baby when he/she decides to leave their five star hotel and enter the world!

    I have followed your blog for some time, prior to the Blogger switch. In particular, I have enjoyed watching your little family grow. Isabelle’s video reviews are a treat and I loved her nativity play that was featured: http://allbabyadvice-blog.com/index.php/2011/12/isabelle-as-a-star-in-her-schools-nativity-play/ I enjoy reading the blogs via email and will always open them to see what you’ve been up to.
