Well that’s an interesting title if i do say so myself. But don’t worry, it’s not as sensational as it may sound. This post is all about my 23 month old catching Chicken Pox and simple advice for any parents, if their kids have never contracted the virus. It’s a tough time for all involved, so please read on if you want to know more about the (almost) inevitable condition.
Here at Daddycated, we don’t like to lose sight of the essential basics that many other people may overlook. After all, where else do you need to look, other than your friendly neighbourhood Dad Blog? And thus without further a do do…

Imogen Heap amongst others were drafted in by C&G Baby Club UK to make a song that was scientifically proven to make babies happy.

A question facing many parents (especially first timers) is ‘at what age do we change from a cot to a bed?’.
With worries like ‘but he/she wriggles so much all night and will end up falling out of bed’ and ‘I can’t be arsed to convert the cot/buy a bed!’ may make you want to leave the task for a little longer. But the fact is, that you can’t keep them in there for too long. Something needs to be done!
The trouble is, that you are almost guaranteed to get Conjunctivitis if you are fairly new to this world. This is something that not a single soul will tell you, so here’s a short warning on what it is, how to recognise it, what to do and how to deal with it effectively.
It’s the 23th of December, so it’s time to wish all my readers a very Merry Christmas!
I sincerely hope you all have a peaceful break from the norm, full of festive cheer and magic for the little ones.
It’s a great time to reflect on how lucky we are to have each other, from our amazing families and close friends to our everyday acquaintances.
Sometimes it’s easy to feel like you haven’t been praying enough to the parenting gods. You work hard, you try your best to inspire and guide your kids towards a bright future that they can control, but at time it can feel like nothing is going right.
Do you want to make an impact with your kids education? Do you want to make learning easier and help them develop a more confident approach in school? Do you want to help develop good attention and listening skills? There’s an answer and it’s not easy, but it’s time to take the bull by the horns.
