What’s i-Size all about?

As it’s Child Safety Week I thought it would be a good idea to try and decode some of the confusion behind i-Size car seat regulations. As a mum to a toddler and baby, I myself wanted to know what it was all about and why the laws were changing. I went to an i-Size event at Maxi-Cosi today to get my head around it a little better.    So firstly, what is i-Size? It’s the new European wide car {Read More}

Quinny Moodd Review

We were asked to try out the Quinny Moodd while we were at The Baby Show; while we obviously haven’t been able to test it to its full potential, here’s an update of what we thought. Although it can be used from birth (as it can lie completely flat) to 15kg which is approximately three and a half years, we obviously only tested it out in terms of having a toddler in it. Isabella is two and a half and {Read More}

BabyBjorn We Carrier

BabyBjorn launched their new carrier, the BabyBjorn We (suitable from birth to 3 years) and Isabella and I were lucky enough to be invited along to the launch to give it a spin. We arrived to a beautifully set up room decorated with their limited edition ‘DOTS by Karin’ (which I must admit, I’ve totally fallen in love with! Good job I’m expecting again!). We were welcomed in with delicious breakfast treats and coffee and Isabella got to try out the {Read More}

Chicco LiteWay Stroller Grey

I’ve been using the Chicco LiteWay Stroller in grey for about a month now and really like it. As the name suggests, it’s really light to push and it takes up barely any room in the boot of the car when folded which is just what I’ve been looking for. The LiteWay has 4 new colour choices for 2014 including: grey, Ombra, Fuchia and Green Wave. Moving away from my large travel system which took up the whole of the boot {Read More}

JJ Cole Urban Bundleme

  I’ve tired many different pram covers and blankets with my little when we go out and now she’s able to move around more, I’ve found that blankets get kicked off and other pram covers are either too restricting or don’t fir out pram properly (we have the Mamas and Papas Ultima but the straps are quite awkward to fit with most generic pram covers). However, because of the Velcro strap adjusters as well as the elasticated loop at the {Read More}

Babyzen YOYO

We have been testing out the Babyzen YOYO for about a month and while it was lightweight and very, very small, there were too many niggles for me to warrant spending the hefty price tag on this pushchair; I really was expecting more from this stroller given its price. Don’t get me wrong, there are some fantastic features on this stroller and if you have no storage or use public transport a lot, this could be ideal. Pros: The most {Read More}

Maclaren Techno XLR

The Maclaren Techno XLR pushchair is Maclaren’s top of the range stroller; it is suitable from birth, as it has a one handed, 4 positioning system including lay flat for newborns or snoozing toddlers. It comes in a range of colours, some of which are gender specific, but the unisex colours are a bit bland, like champagne and black, black or neon orange and black! The powder blue for boys is lovely, as is the pink for the girls. Although {Read More}

Baby Bear On Board Car Sign

I dislike the normal, boring, yellow Baby On Board signs and think, if you are going to have one, you might as well have a pretty one. I know lots of parents feel that these signs won’t actually make any difference to how other people drive but I’d like to think I’d done everything possible to help avoid reckless driving around me, no matter how small the action. With this in mind, I set out to find a ‘pretty’ car {Read More}

Pram liner and matching stay put blanket from Ginga-Baby

When it’s chilly outside, there is nothing more appealing to me than a nice warm fleece blanket. Ginga-Baby make beautiful fleece pram sets which will keep any little one snug and warm in this wintery weather. I don’t know about you, but my daughter really doesn’t like putting on big thick coats and cries every time I try. And what makes it worse is that when I’m out in the shops, she gets far too hot with her coat on {Read More}
