Now A has turned two and summer is finally here (according to the weather man, today's grey sky is just a blip and a heatwave is on the way!) my thoughts are strongly turning towards potty training.

If I am honest, I just can't be bothered to face it. But I know that it has to be done and A is definitely showing strong signs of 'being ready'. I am still in two minds. Some mums have recommended waiting until she is a bit older, when she can properly get the concept and understand what is required. Others say to seize the day. What has started to sway me towards the latter is a fe ... Read More

Clarins Sun milk for children and babies. 100% mineral sun cream, water resistant and just delicious. It's only £18!
Packing for holiday is both exciting and stressful. I emphasize stressful as I am packing for two, under a strict weight limit! (Thanks Ryanair!) I emphasize excitement as we are off to Italy for a wedding!

Thankfully I have my wedding outfit sorted (that's the main thing!?) and A is a bridesmaid so I don't even need to think about hers. The rest needs to be seaside-suitable with a few glam looks for evening soirees.

If you are off on your holidays soon and wondering what to take with a little on in tow - Here are some Mumzynot suitcase-essentials. I have learnt t ... Read More

When it comes to swimwear Melissa Odabash is one of my favorites. I have numerous Odabash bikini's and every year I seem to add at least one more style to my collection. This summer however, I think I might just concentrate on A....

So cute! Mini Odabash for my very own mini-me beach babe. What's even more exciting, you can shop the collection online here.

When it comes to newborns and little ones, I feel (wherever possible) organic and natural is always best. Such a precious thing deserves nothing less.

There are some really cute baby brands that recognize this parental desire and one of my favorites has to be Natures Purest - They have such an adorable collection. From bathtime essentials to nursery collections all made from the finest, purist, 100% natural cotton.  It could not be softer or more snuggly!

I always think that when it comes to shopping, quality should always out-weight quantity and ... Read More

J Crew baby
I know it's grey and miserable out there, but I am still optimistic that Summer is just around the corner...So in anticipation I have been looking for some new additions for A's summer wardrobe. (She will need summer holiday clothes, if nothing else!)  One if my favorite brands, for myself and for A, is J Crew, and this seasons collection for little-ones does not disappoint.

J Crew is fabulous when it comes to casual classics. Think simple yet stylish designs, offered in the softest cottons and cashmere, this season incorporating cool prints and candy colours. Spots, stripes ... Read More

This is such a cute idea that I was introduced to a few weeks ago by one of the PR companies I work with. Jazz for Babies. A really loves music, of all genres, so I knew straight away we had to have some sample CD's to listen to.

They say that playing music to a bump is a great way to sooth and comfort. When your baby is born they will recognise the sounds heard from the womb and instantly be settled. I can really see how this would work.  In a similar way to white noise i'm guessing..... (which 100% worked a treat for us when A was a new born). I didn't play music to A specifi ... Read More

Some exciting news if you love kids fashion as much as me...Net-A-Porter are set to launch a new site, dedicated to all  mini-fashionistas - Petite-A-Porter. How cute, I cannot wait!

The launch date is yet to be announced but Net-A-Porter MD, Alison Loehnis, revealed in a recent interview that the iconic e-tailer has had Petite-A-Porter registered for some time. .....Now the news is mainstream I can only imagine launch date is imminent. No doubt their mini-collection of the latest in children's fashion and design will be just as desirable as the one offered to us grown-ups. Be ... Read More

Just a quickie - One of my favorite baby brands, aden + anais, has recently launched a pop-up store in Harrods. A  must-visit next time you are heading that way. You can shop their collection (which is a real treat as most baby-boutiques only offer a very small selection) and also view the latest print- additions to the aden + anais family.

I love aden + anais and since A was born I have managed to put together an extensive collection of their most luxurious 100% cotton Muslins. (You can never have too many Muslins and you can't beat the quality of aden + anais). I will definit ... Read More

I have just discovered a delightful Australian brand specialising in baby-swaddling and sleeping bags, Bubbaroo.

Here's a bit about Bubbaroo : Bubbaroo was founded in 2007 by a new mum experiencing a traumatic first few months with a newborn suffering from severe Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease. She quickly learnt that swaddling was the best option for her baby, to help settle and comfort. However, the traditional swaddle blankets were easily kicked off by a squirming wriggly little one. After failing to find a suitable alternative, Bubbaroo and the Joey Pou ... Read More
