I’m often asked by friends, family & blog readers for recommendations of the best places to get good quality beautiful baby clothes and as Florence has such a vast wardrobe I think I’m pretty clued up in this department. Here is a list of some […]

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 […]
In my opinion feeding a baby is one of loveliest jobs in the world, not only does it give you the perfect opportunity to bond with your little one, there;s nothing like snuggling a baby close and gazing down into their big eyes while they contently take in their milk. There is such an array of feeding accessories out there on the market which claim to enhance this experience, and nursing pillows are often at the top of that list. The HushCush is a nursing pillow with a difference.
Designed to make bottle / boob time as comfortable as possible for both Mum and Baby, the HushCush acts as a sleeve for you to put your arm through relieving strain on your arm and your baby’s head. The innovative design keeps the cushion securely in place making it ideal for use when sitting or standing.
Ideal for both breast & bottle feeding Mamas, the HushCush elevates baby’s head to reach the ultimate feeding position to help reduce indigestion and reflux by keeping their head above their tummy.
The cushion comes in an array of colours and accompanied by a 100% washable cover to protect it from any milk spills or sick ups. We chose the strawberry cover design which is super pretty and the fabric is so soft.
The cushion also has an attachable loop to make it easy to take with you on the go making it the perfect portable nursing pillow.
We’ve teamed up with HushCush to offer you the chance to win one of these fabulous nursing cushions of your very own. You’ll also get to pick your cover design too! All you have to do is enter using the raffle copter below.

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 […]
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, […]
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 or Sean but sometimes, especially when it’s just me at home, a Mama needs her hands free for five minutes, even if it’s just so she can run for a quick wee or eat that piece of toast that went cold about half an hour ago, and that’s when I turn to our Poddle Pod.
Some of you may know that I used to run an online baby shop and the Poddle Pod was one of our best sellers. Along with the NodPod, I would recommend it to every expecting Mama I came into contact with as despite not having a little one of y own I loved the concept and had only ever heard good things. However, until I had Florence I had no idea just how much of a sanity saver it would be. We use our Poddle Pod every single day and it really does feel like a second pair of hands. It means I can work in the mornings while Florence lays next to me, eat dinner, tidy up the baby stuff explosion in the living room and even wash/sterilise/prepare the next load of bottles without having to risk waking her from her nap or do absolutely everything one handed.
The Poddle Pod is essentially a large nest-like pillow. When your baby is laid down in the pod, the cushion walls cuddle in to help your baby feel snuggled and secure despite not being in your arms. It is 100% washable and made from breathable materials to stop any bacteria build up. It is worth mentioning here that while breathable, safe sleep guidelines from the Lullaby Trust recommend a clear cot space and so would advise against unsupervised sleep in the Poddle Pod or any other baby pillow or nest – something Poddle Pod inventor Charlotte is quick to advise and we implement here at all times – Florence is never far from my sight while sleeping in hers.
As well as for supervised naps and snuggles, we use our Poddle Pod for a whole multitude of things. It’s the perfect place for newborn play, ideal for a quick nappy change, a safe and warm setting for a spot of baby massage & fab for that all important tummy time. We even use ours as a photo backdrop.
We use it in the living room, in the garden and even take it to Granny’s house. In fact, we take it pretty much everywhere we go that we’ll be staying for a long time. We’re heading on a few little breaks over the next few months and the Poddle Pod will be one of the first things I pack.
When choosing your Poddle pod, there are a number of double sided washable and removable covers available in a range of gorgeous prints and designs. We opted for this pretty pink fairy tale print called Enchanted and will be ordering a second cover in Stardust in the next few weeks.
The Pod bundle which includes the pod, cover & a carry bag retails at £39.99 and is suitable for babies aged 0-6m. For babies aged 6 months+, the larger Toddle Pod is also available at £49.99.

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 […]
When I found out I was pregnant, we had just moved into our house. We’d been looking for a while and I had got to the point were we really needed to take the next step to get our own place. When our offer was […]
