One of the most daunting things about using a baby carrier can be getting it on and your baby inside without tying yourself up in knots, not to mention the fear of letting something you are wearing safely hold your baby! Being hands free can feel very unnatural at first. The Complete Original baby carrier from Lillebaby comes with a great instruction manual with some of the most smiley women you have ever seen, clearly illustrating how to approach each carrying option.

The CARES Child Airplane Safety Harness has been designed specifically for children aged 1 and older, who weigh between 22 and 44 pounds. However most airlines allow children to remain on the lap until two years old, but at this age children can sit in their own seats if you choose to pay. The issue is that all the seats on the planes have seat belts that are designed for adults and don’t hold their little bodies in place as well. The CARES aims to help keep your child more secure during the flight.
At this time of year, you never know what the weather might throw at you from one hour to the next, at the same time it is not always possible to simply shut yourself away on bad weather days, especially with a young family. It is important for both mind and body to get some daylight throughout the winter months. The BundleBean Go has added a new design to the Go collection, a sweet and playful Polar Bear family against a soft sage background, it looks beautiful and wintery, and will keep your little one cosy and protected against the harsh winter weather.
The Tula 3 blanket sets come in 38 designs to help you find the perfect theme to match your nursery. Options include one rather funky blanket and two not so exciting plain blankets in complementary colours. The Saguaro design that we received was a Cacti patterned blanket, perhaps not the first thing that springs to mind when you think of soft and cosy blankets, but it is cute nonetheless. The other two blankets come in an attractive Basil Green and Jade Green.
The Free-To Grow is a fully adjustable, ergonomic baby carrier whose width and height can be easily changed as your baby grows. With 19 beautiful styles to choose from it is fuss free, no infant insert required, and it can be used from as little as 7lbs up to 45lb. Constructed from 100% OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified fabric the Tula Free-To-Grow are hand-made, the body panel adjusts to three different widths settings and two height settings which could take you from new-born to early toddler.
Meet Snoozy, from myHummy this fuzzy little “bear” comes in two colours, Slate or Mint, both modern, gender neutral designs. No pastel pink or sky blue here! Snoozy plays soothing sounds to help lull babies to sleep and can be attached to a cot with a dummy clip. Snoozy comes with five different white noise options to choose from, amniotic fluid with heartbeat (wasn’t he a DJ in the 90’s?), ocean waves, rainfall, vacuum cleaner and a hairdryer. The white noise box sits snuggly inside the body of the toy and can be switched on by squeezing its face.
As we are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of keeping our carbon footprint to a minimum, more and more companies are trying to do their part. Greentom are the creators of the first ever green stroller. The Greentom Classic has a frame that has been made from recycled polypropylene and the seat is made of recycled PET bottles, making it the first 100% green buggy.
Even though I have recently level upped into fully fledged grown-up (turned 30 AND got married in the same year), all my clothes feature at least one of three things: the colour black, rips. or skulls. Although my Mum thinks I should grow up, I’m ok with that. Being in the same position as a lot of people my age who are newly married, we are preparing for the next step (no, not divorce), the pitter patter of tiny financial burdens.
