As we are trying to get James used to not taking out his pushchair as much in preparation for his little brother arriving, a nice walk as a family is brilliant. Before we moved into our house we were staying with my parents, who live on the Northumberland Coast. There was nothing better than slipping a pair of reins onto James and taking him down to the harbour to see the boats and ducks or up to the park at the top of their road to burn off some of his excess energy before bed time.
After a day out in Newcastle with only one brief sit down to eat a sandwich, oh dear my poor back was in agony. I spent most of the evening and most of the next day resting on the sofa. I even had to resort to lying on our bed after a deep soak in the bath. Lucky it was a Sunday and Andy was at home to take over the majority of care for James, who at almost three turns everything into a battle, especially getting dressed, having his bum changed and of course the dreaded bedtime.
I was sent a pack with Deep Freeze patches to see if they would help the pain I was suffering. I knew I had a busy day coming up with James starting with a trip to the children's centre and then into town to pick up a few baby bits & spend some time with my parents. I decided to see if the patches would help with any pain I was in after.
When we got in I had twinges in my back but had a few tasks to do before I could sit down, by the time I had put washing on, unpacked baby shopping and unpacked my new pregnancy pillow my back was in agony. I popped on a deep freeze patch and the relief it gave me was a joy! I seriously could have kissed the patch! I was able to sit down and chill out without having to wriggle on sofa trying to get comfy. I was also able to cook dinner without needing to get a chair out.
I have used the deep heat cream and patches in the past but never the deep freeze till now! These are something I'm definitely going to keep in the house for the rest of my pregnancy and after! I absolutely love the re sealable package the patches come in. It means I can pop them in my bag without worrying the box is going to get damaged.
