Twiglet Top Tips – Fidgetbum Review

Fidgetbum review

If you’ve been reading my blog or following me on Instagram for a while, you will probably be aware that sleep (or lack thereof!) has always been one of our biggest struggles with the twiglets. Generally things are much much better than they used to be (I mean when they were babies I could regularly be found Googling whether or not you could actually die from sleep deprivation 🙈) These days, more often than not (excuse me while I just touch all the wood in the universe!)

Hi and welcome to the latest in my Twiglet Top Tips series, where I share with you products or brands that I love 😊 This post is about a product called Benenox ‘Overnight Recharge’. Now I’m not particularly one for healthfoody-type supplements and would usually decline collaborations on products like that, however when Benenox approached me and told me about their liquid vitamin supplement designed for those who struggle with disrupted sleep and low energy, I have to admit I nearly bit their hand off 🤣
