Bath Buddies - not just for newborns

Bath Buddies - not just for newborns

The Bath Buddy was always one of my favourite products. It was soft and friendly looking and you could tell that little bodies could melt into the beads and nestle in all snug. 

Once Annabelle was born I was excited to try it. The hardest decision was choosing which design she would have (I was bad at this decision and she now has most of them!) 

I remember her first bath vividly, we thought we wanted the water shallow (and safe) and she screamed through the whole, luke - warm, experience. I was disheartened that she hadn't warmed to my favourite bath buddy, nor enjoyed her bath in any way, shape or form. She literally looked at us with disdain once it was all over!  

However, once we worked out the babies like hot baths where they are immersed in water, bath time with her bath buddy quickly became her favourite time of the day.

The bath buddy really has made baby bathtime the MOST fun. She relaxes in it, kicks about and Rob doesn't get a crick in his bath from bending over the big bath! We have used it in the baby bath, normal bath, shower floor and even in the paddling pool.

A must have for new parents, parents with toddlers and newborns and parents who want to enjoy baby's bath time. Shop the range here

Liners - what's in a name?

You will see on the website that some of our liners are pram liners and others, pushchiar liners. The truth is, a liner is a liner! However, we seem to have so many names for them  that I (we) call them different things so that you can find them in your searches!

Our liners are designed with a universal fit in mind and so far, they seem to be fitting your buggy's just fine! I have a Mountain Buggy Swift and love the look of our liners on this pram. The bottom safety harness needs a little maneuvering when first getting through the bottom slot, however the overlocked edge does has room for movement and one you do it the first time it stretches to the right length and is a breeze to take on and off after that!

I also have a Bugaboo Chameleon 2 on the go, and they look DEVINE on this model! (photos to come shortly) 

Our stroller liners are made from 100% cotton and we currently have three different designs. 

Jersey Cotton Pram Liner - Made from a soft and cosy jersey cotton. Ideal for trans seasonal and autumn. Reversible design.

Reversible Pushchair Liner - made from a cool drill cotton, with a reversible design. Ideal for year round use for added padding, colour and giving baby a breathable surface to relax on. 

Reversible cotton pram liner. Ideal as a stroller liner and pushchair liner.

So whatever the model, I think our pushchair liners will be perfect for you! And if you have any questions or issues, please feel free to get in contact via email or on here! 

Annabelle is almost 4 months old.... and this is my first post!

Annabelle is almost 4 months old.... and this is my first post!

I had the best intentions when I found out I was pregnant with Annabelle. I was going to take weekly photo updates to make into an amazing pregnancy video, blog about feelings & kicks and a dedicated vlog to the planning of her nursery. Lastly, once born, I was planning to blog about my favourite products, our daily stories and share cute videos. 

1 year after finding out I was pregnant and nearly 4 months after having Annabelle, I am happy to say I have done NONE of it! Turns out, being pregnant/having a baby and running a business is harder than Instagram would have me believe!

So to sum up the last year in bullet points (as opposed to the 104 blog posts I thought I would post!)
