Coconut oil for cradle cap?

So only recently Eloise has been suffering from cradle cap (from about 6 months on wards) i left it for a while as i didn't want to start adding loads of products to her scalp, then randomly one day i thought i would google and see if you could put coconut oil on it as i know you can pretty much use that stuff for anything!!

Once id done a bit of research on google i got some pure coconut oil (that had come from my Birchbox a while ago) i didn't know what to use it for on myself so i kept it in case i found a use and i then used it on Eloise. 


So Eloise is very lucky that she was born with quite a lot of hair so by 6 months i could tie it up like a little pineapple, so i did that and massaged (very gently) some coconut oil into her scalp, the reason i had to be gentle is because 1 shes still very young and 2 where the scabs were some of her hair was attached and falling out.

I left this coconut oil in for a few hours and bathed her in the evening. After her bath i put a bit more in and left it overnight, and repeated this for about 2-3 days, after that it was completely gone.

I have no officially fallen in love with coconut oil and since using it on her cradle cap i have researched online so many other different uses for it! Were defiantly going to use it in cooking more as its a lot healthier than the other alternatives.

What do you guys use coconut oil for? I'd love to hear from you as i want to find more uses for it!

Thanks once again for your continued support!

Visiting Santa at Trevena Cross Nurseries

Today we took Eloise to visit Santa at Trevena Cross Nurseries in Breage, Cornwall. We took her last year when she was a lot


younger and it was great, but it was even better this year!

They had a little market on selling stuff from local businesses, like jewelry, bread, cheese, photos, crafts etc.

Then they had the santas grotto which is amazing, as your in the que they brought round chocolates, then there was a snow globe which you could stand behind and have a photo which looked amazing! There was also a enormous polar bear and fake snow and a talking owl and post box which is amazing for the kids.

Going there was free, and it only cost £5 to go and visit santa but the money goes to there chosen charities. When you go into the actual grotto there is a fantastic display of lights and status of animals, before you see father christmas so its a lovely experience. Then at the end you get to choose your own present from santa so theres stuff to suit all ages. This year Eloise chose a toy…
