I’d never heard of Skip Hop as a brand before, until my friend Jennie told me all about their baby toys. I’ve ogled at her Camping Cubs Play Mat each time we’ve visited! Last week, while on the hunt for toys to add to our […]

Now that Florence is officially out of the new born stage – *sobs!* – I though I would give you a bit of a run down on the products & other things which made our lives a whole lot easier in those early days with […]
As a new parent, you really can never have too many blankets. Whether it’s a special Granny knit, a fleecey snuggle baby blanket, or a giant muslin, we very rarely leave the house without at least one. This month, as part of our Zippy Bibs ambassador role, we were sent one of their new baby blankets to test out and over the last few weeks we have been putting it through its paces. SPOILER ALERT: We love it. SO MUCH.
The pink & white stripey baby blanket is a pretty and practical baby must have. It’s knitted with 100% combed cotton making it perfect for keeping baby cosy on a cold day or out and about.
It is unbelievably soft and completely free of any bobbly bits for the ultimate comfort for baby. Florence also now quite likes to play with it, stroking it with her hands.
Not only have we used this blanket to keep Florence snuggly & warm throughout this strange non summery summer, we’ve also used it as a play mat, picnic blanket & photo backdrop.
Having used this blanket almost every day, you can imagine we’ve had to wash it quite a few times and it is still as soft and lovely as the day it arrived.
This gorgeous blanket makes a really lovely gift for new parents and at £20 is very reasonable for the quality. It is available in a number of different designs from stars to spots and in pinks, blues, greys & monochrome.
It’s safe to say Florence absolutely ADORES bath time! It is a key part of our daily routine and BOY do we pay for it if for whatever reason we skip it. Like me, a warm bubbly bath seems to completely relax her and get […]
As you know I am a complete baby clothing addict. I cannot walk past a shop without having to go in and check out their baby range, nor scroll through instagram without clicking on the link of those reeeally cute rainbow leggings Florence just must […]
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 of our favourite places to buy outfits for your baby on the High Street & from independent brands online. We’ll be adding to this list as we go, so be sure to check back when you’re in search of some baby fashion inspiration!
We are BIG lovers of Boots Mini Club and Florence practically lives in their rompers & sleepsuits. They wash up really well and I love the bright & bold patterns they have on offer across their range.
I’ve been really surprised with how much I love mothercare clothing. Before I had Florence I always thought that their bits were a little over priced but in actual fact I’ve picked up so many lovely outfits from there. Probably on par with Boots Mini Club for quality, mothercare clothes just seem to last and last wash after wash. Their sleepsuit multipacks are my favourite from across all of the High Street shops and are roomy and comfortable for baby and their little outfits ware just as well. Florence has a whole bunch of this super cute bunny collection and their My K & Little Bird by Jools ranges are definitely worth taking a look at if you’re after bold & beautiful patterns for either boy or girl.
For the trendiest baby clothes in town Next is my go to place! You might have seen my Next Sale Haul where I picked up so many absolutely gorgeous bits & bobs for Florence. Our most recent favourite have to be these cute bunny joggers!
Matalan’s baby range is absolutely brilliant and such great value for money. When Florence was just born I headed to Matalan on the off chance that I might find some cooler clothes for the heatwave we were in and came home with two huge bags full. Again, they wash really well and the range is so varied and colourful.
Luxury handmade leggings for boys & girls from 0 – 4 years. We absolutely adore this brand for their quality & brilliant service and I cannot wait for Florence to finally grow into her Anchor leggings!
I recently discovered this brand on instagram and have an ever growing wishlist from their store! We have a gorgeous hot air balloon romper on the way to us at the moment! I love the vibrant colours.
Claire makes & designs beautiful dresses in the most wonderful range of patterns. Whether you’re looking for a tunic style, party or princess dresses you will find a design that is perfect for your little one.
Home to even more Princess & the Frock designs as well as many more, we love the variety of bright & bold beautifulness available at Florrie & Max.
Alex has designed an array of coordinating unisex leggings, bibs & muslins in gorgeous animal prints! We especially love the new range which includes a lamb & bear zippy sleepsuit.
Whether you’re after dinosaurs, unicorns, flowers or robots the lovely Emma over at Do Make and Mend makes gorgeous clothes for littlies. We love this skirt that I ordered from her a couple of weeks ago and I’ve got my eye on some gorgeous Dino harems at the moment! You can shop her range of ready to ship clothing on her etsy page or contact her on facebook to see the range of fabrics she has for any custom items.
The home of colourful tights for boys & girls (and Mums & Dads!) they have an array of gorgeous patterns on offer.
SewKuddly sell a range of beautiful handmade to order baby & toddler wear including dresses, rompers, shorts, leggings & more. They offer a HUGE selection of fabrics to choose from and many of their items are perfect for both boys & girls.
You can find a fab range of unisex clothing from a variety of independent brands over at Apples & Pips including ‘The Bunting Tree’.
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 […]
