With 6 weeks off school and no consistent school routine for over 18 months, the return to school from the summer holidays may be harder than previous years. We’ve put together some tried and tested ideas to help you get out the door on time and be as organised as possible to help you get into a good back to school routine.
Set out for the next morning
This might not be the first thing you think of to get everyone out of the door on time, but setting out school uniforms, school bags and the breakfast table the night before saves so much time. There’s no arguing about what they are wearing, who is sitting where and what they need to take with them if everything is prepared.
Use the last couple of weeks before they return to school to start practising a routine so when they do go back to school it won’t be a brand new idea to them.
Take 5 minutes before you go to bed to set out their clothes (including socks and underwear) and set the breakfast table. Layout the cereal boxes, put bowls on everyone’s placemat and even put the teabag in your favourite mug to...

As kids continue to grow from baby to toddler to teenager, as a parent you need to ensure that your child has the perfect bed to suit them. As all children grow and develop at different rates there is no set age of when they should and shouldn’t move from a cot to a bed, but when you do feel that they are able to move from a cot safely there are a few options available.
At approximately 3 years old most children move from a cot into a traditional single bed to improve their comfort and to ensure they suitably fit their bed. Whether it’s a toddler bed or a full-sized single mattress, pick a bed they’ll love getting into each night is really important. The younger members of the family will adore their own smaller bed as they transition from cot to their brand new ‘big’ bed.

Mid sleepers and high sleepers both offer sleeping solutions that are raised off the ground and are higher than your typical kid's bed.
A high sleeper, as the name suggests, is an elevated bed with a lot of space underneath due to the height the bed is from the ground. With so much space underneath high beds are often designed with desks, wardrobes, sofa and pull out beds. There’s a lot of versatility with high sleepers which allows you to incorporate a lot of essential furniture without impacting on vital floor space.
In comparison, a mid sleeper is typically mid-height between a traditional bed and a high sleeper. It typically has a shorter ladder or built-in steps to access the bed so is an ideal solution for younger children who may not be confident enough to safely use the ladders of a high sleeper. Mid sleepers are a popular solution thanks to their inbuilt storage solutions, pull out desks and play solutions depending on the needs of your child.
Storage: high sleepers v mid sleepers
Both options provide maximum storage solutions with multifunctional solutions that can be changed and adapted as your child grows up. You can shop for beds based on the...

The summer months are the easiest time to update and transform your kid's bedroom. The lighter nights, warmer weather and sunny mood make transforming your kid's bedroom a bit easier, especially if you’re working hard to get it done after a long day at work.
When updating any kids bedroom it is beneficial to design and adapt a bedroom that allows your child to comfortably grow and work with their interests for the next few years. Consider passions they have, overall interests and practical solutions that will work as they grow. Will they need more storage? Where will they do their homework? Will your kids need to share rooms with siblings? All of these things are ideas to consider when revamping and upgrading their bedroom. Here’s our guide to a summer bedroom update to get you started:
Invest in the essentials
If you get the essential elements of any bedroom right then everything else will fit in perfectly. From the wardrobe to the bed, you must pick something that will last and can quite possibly be passed down to younger siblings as one child grows out of their needs. For example, a hard-wearing mid sleeper can last a child well into their...
