MUMMY AND BABY SLEEPING BAGS WITH FEET

I cannot tell you how long I have dreamed of an adult sleeping bag

I have been cosleeping

With Bea

Then Edie

For over 4 years!

I would love a Slumbersac to snuggle up in

With a zip front for breastfeeding

This is an awesome product

And would make an amazing present

For a safely cosleeping mum

And with matching Slumbersac for baba

HOW cute?

SERAPHINE SKIN TO SKIN TOP

I would have loved this top with all my babies

It is such a beautiful idea

And a thoughtful gift

MUM SKIN TO SKIN TOP

As a preemie parent I am all too aware of the benefits of skin to skin

The reasons for kangaroo care

This is perfect for encouraging bonding time between mummy and baby

I wonder if I could squeeze Edie into one?

JEM + BEA INDIGO BACKPACK

Before I had babies

I chose large changing bags

That once packed to the brim with baby belongings

Became heavy and hard to carry

More recently I have been using a rucksack while out and about

If I had my parenting time again

I would definitely choose a changing backpack from the off

As it is so useful as a parent

To have both your arms and hands free

A backpack is far more practical for babywearing too

Jem + Bea have some beautiful ones

Including this one available from Natural Baby Store

MUM JEM AND BEA BACKPACK

BEBE AU LAIT NIGHTINGALE NURSING SCARF

This nursing scarf is also from Natural Baby Shower

A pretty present that can be worn as an ordinary scarf

But can then be used to cover baby

For discreet nursing while out and about

I feed my babies any and everywhere

But there are times when I feel uncomfortable

And so to have a cover up like this would help at those times

And it does look very pretty

Pretty and practical

The perfect present

MUM NIGHTINGALE NURSING SCARF

MAMA AND BELLE TEETHING NECKLACE

I have this Iris Rainbow necklace

Edie and I both love it

It is great for babies to teeth on

It is a great fiddle toy for babies and toddlers

And my older kids have been known to play with it too

It looks great when mummy wears it

And it can soothe baby while nursing to fiddle with the beads

There are lots of colours and designs available

But this is my favourite

MOTHER JUMPER FROM THE FMLY STORE

I have wanted one of these jumpers for the longest time

But as a home educating mummy of four

I have very little money to spend on me

I think as parents we are all guilty of that

Splurging on the family but reluctant to spend on ourselves

So if there is a mama in your life

Why not surprise her with one of these?

And The FMLY Store have a great ethos too

Their philosophy is that style should not only look good

But do good too

£5 from the sale of this #GoodTees design goes to mothers2mothers

Who employ, train and empower women living with HIV

Their goal is to end paediatric AIDS

A gift that gives to many mamas this Christmas

MUM MAMA FMLY SWEAT

So here are some ideas for the new mum in your life this Christmas

But don’t forget to do something as well as give something

Make a cup of tea

Wash the dishes

Play a game with any older children

Hold the baby so that mummy can spend time with her older children

Walk the dog

Take some healthy snacks

A meal that can be warmed up later

A box of cookies

Christmas is a time for family to come together

And spoil the ones they love

With presence even more than presents

What will you be doing and giving this year?
