Combogesic | Double Action Pain Relief | A Review

If you’re like me and not a huge fan of taking tablets, but want effective pain relief…look no further!

Combogesic is a new pain killer that combines both Paracetemol and Ibuprofen for faster double action pain relief, therefore your pain is resolved quicker and you have less tablets to take!


I don’t have an “issue” per say with taking tablets, but I like to consume as few tablets as possible. So Combogesic are perfect, plus who doesn’t want their pain resolved sooner? I know there are people out there who have a fear or anxiety associated with taking tablets, I feel Combogesic would be perfectly suited to those people as they are slimmer designed, therefore easier to swallow and as I’ve said before it reduces the amount of tablets you need to take.


They are for short term use, last week I had a tension headache which had a rapid onset and progressed very quickly as they tend to, I don’t get them very often but when I do they are extremely painful. I took two Combogesic and within 20 minutes I felt it start to ease and my headache had completely gone within 30 minutes.

I also suffer quite badly with period pain, especially since my second Cesarean, I tend to get a “pain” in my scar, it’s more of discomfort, but still unpleasant. I’ve seen my doctor about it previously and he just recommended over the counter painkillers for when I’m on my period, during my most recent period I took Combogesic and I was able to get on with my day better, being pain free and not having to worry about taking more painkillers a couple of hours later, because Combogesic covered me for 6 hours!


Combogesic is available in the following pharmacies, I got mine at my local Boots:

Bye Bye Buggy

Bye Bye Buggy

I’ve had a lot of different buggies over the last few years, singles, doubles, big ones and small ones.

Obaby Zoom

They’ve all been great, I’ve never really found one that I didn’t like, but by far my favourite has been the Obaby Zoom. Having a longer design rather than a side by side layout, it is different to push, the weight distribution takes some getting used to, but it’s so much easier to get through doorways and the seats are really spacious and comfy. I bought it second hand from a lady on Facebok and it came with two toddler seats and a carrycot, the seats come off and turn around to be forward or rear facing, plus the basket underneath is huge! You can fit so much shopping in, it’s amazing.



I had it for almost a year, so you can imagine my heartbreak when Mikey’s toddler seat snapped! It was due to being put away at an awkward angle and then being jumped on by Mikey. So I contacted Obaby and they confirmed they don’t make this design of seat anymore, so I looked on Ebay, Gumtree and Preloved it came up with nothing, there were plenty of the prams for sale but no toddler seats alone.

Safety First Double Stroller

This buggy is just amazing and so handy, I’m devastated it just isn’t practical longterm for us now, I still have the carrycot and one toddler seat, so I can ferry Nicole and Mikey about, but for longer walks up to an hour to town, then walking around and back I can’t expect Jack to walk all that way and to be honest if I wanted to actually get somewhere on time it wasn’t practical. So I decided to look for something new, I scrolled through triple buggies but nothing appealed to me, so I’ve settled on this cute one that seems to fold up really easy, it’s the Safety First Double Stroller:


Ama Wrap

So it won’t be any different to when I go out on my own with all three, I’ll have Nicole in my Ama Wrap and the boys both in the buggy. I’m excited to start with a new buggy and Jack’s extremely excited to see it, but I will be sad to see my Obaby go, I can still sell it on because it’s perfectly good for a toddler and newborn.


Hopefully I’ll make fond memories with our new buggy, it comes tomorrow so I’ll post pictures when it’s here!
