Baby Annabel Baby Brother Review

We were lucky to receive this lovely Baby Annabel Baby Brother Doll to review.  My daughter age 7 couldn't wait to get him out of his box.

He comes with a bib, bottle, dummy and necklace.

Baby Annabel Baby Brother has lifelike functions.  He responds to touches, can cry real tears and loves his bottle.

From the moment of putting his batteries in and turning him on, he started making baby sounds, they sound so cute and are not too loud, we have had baby dolls in the past and I couldn't wait for them to be turned off.

If you gently rock him he will close his eyes and fall asleep and starts to snore.  When he wakes up you can give him his bottle filled with water,  the water goes into a tank at the back of the dolls head which is used to make him cry real tears (this version of the doll does not wet its nappy).

You can touch/caress his cheeks and he will make cute happy babbling sounds.

My daughter found that he is alot of fun with feeding and crying, although when she put him on her shoulder to pat his back and burp him she got a wet shoulder as the water came out of the eyes even when he wasn't crying.

I hope you have found this review helpful.

We received Baby Annabel Baby Brother free for reviewing.

Hello sorry I have been quiet again.

Life has its ups and downs, busy and quiet times.  Times to evaluate and ponder, times to feel unwell and times to rejoice.

For the last year and a half I have been having digestive trouble, tests, anxiety issues and CBT.  With all of this I keep on going day to day. Dropping and picking up children from school, shopping and running the business. Some days are more difficult than others and I have needed to ask for support from friends.

I wanted to let you into my life a little as I would like to start reaching out to people with similar problems.  I have discovered there are a lot of foods I can't eat due to having an allergy to Rapeseed Oil.  I also struggle with any member of the nightshade family of fruit and vegetables.

Rapeseed Oil is being added to lots of cakes, biscuits, sauces, soups, savoury snacks, crisps (cooked in) and breadcrumbs.  Its cheaper to use and can be heated to a higher temperature than other oils.  I have to check the ingredients of everything I buy now.  I have found also I can only consume Jasmine Rice and the only potatoes I can manage are desiree (other potatoes give me tummy ache and insomnia).

My anxiety is worse some days than others but that depends on what I have eaten and if my tummy is happy.

Apparently our tummy's are linked to our happiness, if your tummy is unhappy it doesn't transmit happy hormones to your brain.  If you are anxious this sends upset messages to your tummy.  Its a circle.

My plan is to try and avoid the foods that cause me trouble and take up Yoga/ Pilates and see if it makes a difference in my tummy emotions.

I would love to hear from you if you suffer from Rapeseed Oil allergy and Nightshade family trouble.  If you know anyone having any digestive trouble please pass on this information, it took me over a year to realise my allergy.  Companies don't tell you they are changing the ingredients they just do it.
