Small Boy has reached that stage, where he is out of nappies and fully potty trained, during the day, but was still wearing a nappy at night, because he wasn’t ready to be without them, and was waking up in the morning, with a very full and wet nappy. We have been using a combination […]READ MORE

Welcome to Cats, Kids, Chaos. We started over 9 years ago, originally as The Mad House of Cats & Babies, in a blur of sleep deprivation. We share family life as we live and see it, and try to keep it real. I write about food allergies, homeschooling, parenting a teenager, product reviews and everything in between. The odd cat post may feauture too. Welcome to the chaos, grab a cup of coffee and join us!
