All the right words, just not necessarily in the right order!

Ah, the perils of Google translate!

I have alerts set up with Google to let me know when terms such as ‘Baby Feed Wheel’, ‘Baby Medicine Wheel’ ‘Get Well Wheel’ ‘Chiggs’ etc etc are mentioned on the web, and I had a corker pop into my inbox recently. Looking into it, this is from a website that has been set up (by a non-English speaker!) to use a lot of keywords and get people to visit the site and click on adverts. Not a problem, there are a lot of them about, but it looks like this one has lobbed our description of the Baby Feed Wheel into a translation tool, with a rather interesting result…

What’s a Youngster Feed Wheel?
The Baby Feed Wheel is a really useful nursery merchandise for model spanking new mom and father that helps them keep monitor of baby’s boy’s feeding events – merely flip the numbered dial to doc the time when baby has his or her milk feed. Whether or not or not by way of the sleep interrupted night time time time, or the sleep deprived daytime when there are so many totally different points to think about, the Youngster Feed Wheel provides a clear reminder of the time of your Youngster’s Boy’s remaining feed.

Towie baby shower nappy cake includes a Baby Feed Wheel. Reem!

Sunday, March 30th, 2014

The cast of The Only Way Is Essex (known as Towie) are known for their love of a party, so what better excuse than a baby on the way? In the episode shown on ITV2 this evening (Sunday) Sam Faiers threw a glamorous baby shower for her expectant sister, Billie.

The real star of the show was the spectacular 5 tier nappy cake presented to the Mum-to-be, who was absolutely delighted with her gift.

The stunning pink party centrepiece was made by Chiggs stockist Pure Nappy Cakes and includes a host of baby essentials that the new Mum will find invaluable, including a pink Baby Feed Wheel!

Billie and her fiancée Greg have already thrown a ‘gender reveal’ party when they cut a cake to reveal the pink coloured sponge indicating they were expecting a baby girl.

If you’re ‘well jel’ of Billie, fear not, head over to the Pure Nappy Cakes website where you can purchase this and a whole range of gorgeous Nappy Cakes featuring Baby Feed Wheels.

Books galore

Wednesday, January 8th, 2014

Yesterday I received a very exciting delivery through the post. A big brown-paper-wrapped parcel that was so heavy, the Postman asked me how many gold ingots were in there (I wish!).

Enclosed was a selection of business books dealing with various aspects of online marketing and trading. Absolutely perfect material for me to get stuck into, covering all sorts of different topics, so will hopefully give me some great ideas for the business and inspiration for ways to improve the Chiggs website.

One of the books specifically deals with blogging- “for Passion, Profit, and to Create Community” reads the blurb, so once I’ve read that one I’m hoping for great(er!) things here at the Chiggs blog! 🙂

So how did this treasure trove of information come to be resting on my coffee table? The best news of all is that I won the whole package!

A while ago Mumsnet (a parenting website that I have been a member of since 2005 when I was seeking help with potty training Chiglet!) started a business section on the forums in association with Barclays Bank, and together they ran a ‘Barclays on Mumsnet’ Online Business Fortnight. I took part, tweeted a few tweets, and lo and behold a few weeks ago received a message to say that I had won their book giveaway.

I shall report back with book reviews shortly!

Baby Feed Wheel reviews

Sunday, October 20th, 2013

There are some fabulous reviews of Baby Feed Wheels dotted around the web, so we’ve tried to bring as many as we can find all together in one place.

On Amazon the Pink Baby Feed Wheel was given 5 stars, with the reviewer noting that the couple she bought it for use it, so although given as a card, it’s useful too.

A blue Baby Feed Wheel was purchased to add to a new baby hamper, the reviewer said “It’s a simple idea but based on how frazzled I have seen new parents get, seems like an essential!”

On Mumsnet reviews, under ‘Gifts for New Parents’ the Baby Feed Wheel is awarded a whopping 5 stars out of 5 over 6 reviews with comments “This is great for any new mum… I used it especially after the birth of my daughter when I was really tired from all the sleepless nights & sleep deprivation.”

and “This is such a simple idea but absolutely fantastic. I thought it would be pointless ‘I’ll remember when I last fed her’ were my poor innocent pre-birth thoughts. And then the reality of life with a newborn kicked in and this really came into its own at night – def recommended! ”

On Bizziebaby where Lisa awarded the Baby Feed Wheel 5 out of 5, saying  “Quality is superb.  Extremely good value for money and would consider buying more and also as a gift.  Would recommend without hesitation.”

On the Chiggs website we have some lovely testimonials that people have sent us over the years by letter (remember those?!), email, and on Twitter and Facebook – “Can’t tell you how much these wheels helped our sanity when we had the twins! Simple but so effective – like all the best ideas!”

and… “We put the feeding wheel to immediate excellent use. It was a godsend in those early days when most of your brain has deserted you and remembering such a simple thing is beyond you! It’s a fantastic product and we have recommended it to many. Thanks.”… to quote just two!
