Welcome to the Feed Me Mummy Blog! I've never blogged before so I'm not really sure what I'm doing but thought it might be nice to have this space to write down any news or stuff that might be of interest :-) 

Harrogate Nursery Fair - March 2014

Posted on

5 Comments

So this is my first ever blog.  You’d think I’d use the opportunity to brag about how wonderful my breastfeeding vest is, but no, I’m going to tell you about a bunch of amazing products that I saw at the recent Harrogate Nursery Fair when I exhibited there.  Not only are the products fab, but the people behind them are too and in the short time I have known them (literally a couple of days for some of them) they have been an invaluable source of help, advice and support.

So here are some companies I think you need to take a look at!

 

Squidsoap

If like me, you have a child who thinks washing their hands properly just involves a quick splash with water and nothing more, then you need to take a look at the clever Squidsoap. When children dispense the soap, a small ink mark is applied to their hand which will disappear if hands are washed, so no more 2 second hand washes! They’re a fun design with a bright squid toy which is more interesting for young children than your standard bar of soap!

Abeille

Cellular blankets are a must-have item when you have a baby and the ladies on the stand next to me at the show were launching a beautiful new cellular blanket in a range of gorgeous colours.  It's not like other cellular blankets on the market, this one is surely the softest you will find and it makes the perfect gift.  Keep an eye on their website for when it becomes available.

Love Keep Create

I can guarantee that a lot of you have a box or two packed with all those baby clothes that you just can’t bear to get rid of, those extra special ones that really hold special memories of your little ones.  Well instead of just keeping them in a box in the loft, why not have them made into beautiful keepsakes by LoveKeepCreate? They make lovely animals or blankets and they can also turn daddy’s old shirt into a lovely dress or shirt for your little one!

Playtoes

These are lovely pram shoes that offer more than just your average baby shoes.  They are fun, colourful, interactive and keep babies entertained!  They’re designed to stimulate babies’ senses and makes them want to reach out and touch them.

Creeper Crawlers

I wish these Creeper Crawler playsuits had been around when my youngest started to crawl.  We have wooden floors and she was always slipping and sliding everywhere, really struggling to get enough grip to properly crawl.  These suits are fab because they are designed to give babies traction to help them crawl more easily!

Squiz

Another great idea, available very soon, are these reusable food pouches for feeding your baby while out and about.  They're dishwasher safe, ecological and really handy if you want to take your home-made purees out with you.  Also great for putting in snacks like yoghurt or smoothies for older children.  They have a resealable zipper at the bottom for easy filling.  Less mess and less hassle while feeding on the go!
