Florence’s Toy Box – Our Baby Play Essentials at Two Months Old

Florence’s Toy Box – Our Baby Play Essentials at Two Months Old

I mentioned in Florence’s last baby update that she is becoming more and more interested in toys and we incorporate play time into every single day – have done since she was just a couple of weeks old really. We’ve been taking some baby play […]

Zippidy Doo Dah – We’re Zippy Bib Ambassadors!

Zippidy Doo Dah – We’re Zippy Bib Ambassadors!

We’ve recently taken on a very exciting role here as brand reps for one of our favourite baby brands, Zippy Bibs. You might remember me talking about them briefly in our Baby Show round up, or our baby girl clothing haul and while their name does represent the vast array of gorgeous dribble bibs they have to offer, they also sell so much more!

We are huge fans of the entire range at Zippy Bibs and have had the pleasure of testing out quite a few different bits since Florence was born. They recently launched their newborn gift sets which contain a very sweet elephant print zip-up sleepsuit (they make night time changes SO much easier!), matching hat & muslin which we loved in Florence’s earliest days. zippy bib 1

They also sell a range of Muslin & Swaddle blankets which any parent will tell you are essentials when you have a baby. I bought some while I was at the Baby Show & we have used them for all sorts of things so far  – pram sheet, photo backdrop, lightweight blanket, sick catcher, the list goes on. IMG_0412

Milk Monster Review & Giveaway

Milk Monster Review & Giveaway

We chose fairly early on in my pregnancy that Florence would be bottle fed. Not because I have anything against breastfeeding, but because it just suits our lifestyle better and so far I am happy to say we made the right decision. We have routine, […]

Poddle Pod – A Mama’s extra pair of hands

Poddle Pod – A Mama’s extra pair of hands

At nearly four weeks old, Florence is a very cuddly little thing. She is happiest when laying in somebodies arms or snoozing on my chest and during the day time, she very rarely settles down for a nap if she doesn’t feel snuggled up to me […]

Dolls & Trucks Changing Bag Review

Dolls & Trucks Changing Bag Review

We’ve been out and about quite a lot since Florence was born. My post partum recovery was over and done with fairly quickly and Florence is so very laid back so we’ve had no reason to stay cooped up at home – besides being up and out and active is good for the soul, especially when the sun is shining!

This weekend just gone we headed out to Milebush Farm to go strawberry picking and it gave us the perfect opportunity to test out the  changing bag we’ve been sent by Dolls & Trucks. They’ve actually sent us two bags – one mainly for Mummy (I’ll be sharing a bit more about that one in a future post) and one that’s a bit more Daddy friendly.

The grey rucksack is a stylish & practical changing bag fully equipped to hold everything you need for a day out with your little one.

Internally, the main part of the bag is spacious and contains a total of six different internal pockets  – one with a zip fastening, and five different sized open compartments. One of the things that really impressed us about this bag is how widely this main section opens up so you can easily see and access everything you’ve packed. dolls & trucks changing bag review 3

Externally there are a further two zip pockets, one at the front which has two insulated compartments inside for bottles and one small pocket to the side which is ideal for keeping your phone or money in. dolls & trucks changing bag review 4

The bag also comes with a matching changing mat, and waterproof nappy / clothes wallet perfect for protecting everything else in the bag from a wet outfit or making it easy to grab everything you need for that bum change quickly without fumbling around. dolls & trucks changing bag review 2

The rucksack style of the bag is designed with practical parenting in mind and is perfect for when you have your hands full while out and about with baby.  It would also be perfect for use when baby wearing and carrying baby on your front, or if you, like us, head out for dog walks as a family & need your hands free.  Unlike other  rucksacks we have, the straps are padded for extra comfort and don’t dig into your shoulders which  think is a brilliant feature.

Not just for Daddies, I’ve also worn this bag for a day of shopping in town. I don’t drive, so when Sean isn’t around we rely on public transport or walking to get about and it has proved ideal for a busy Mama on the go with the added plus of being able to put any shopping in there too!

Retailing at £55 with the option of free shipping, we think it’s well worth the money.

Check out the full range of changing bags available at Dolls & Trucks here and keep your eyes peeled for a ‘What’s in my Changing bag’ post where I’ll be telling you all about the second bag we were sent which will go live in the next couple of weeks.
